Frank Hamilton (Weavers)

Paul Mills (Stan Rogers' arranger)

Quite a few Brits, Aussies, etc.

Bob Dylan (he uses an alias)

I thought I was the only one who could'nt spell.. Is that famous or imfamous or what..Realy being known for being true to ourselves is all any of us can wish for .. What the world dose with it is up to the world..THanks for the kind words though Pene and love to Bonnie as always. I hope Dylan stops by here and Ry Cooder and Martin Carthy and the rest..We love what they have given and what a gas it would be to talk to them.THe people that I have met in my life that might be called realy famous have all been starved to have people realy MEET them and not just perpetuate the rediculus false picture that comes from the glitz machine. I remember as a kid watching someone trying to meet Aurther Miller and not wanting to see the very funny (Bath room humor GUY) who would have had a blast with our own Catspaw. Instead this person was being very serious in the kind of way his Pretend Aurthor Miller would have liked. Maybe one of the people you yell at here is realy one of your idels!!! What a wonderfull thought.. Catspaw is realy Dylan Thomas but we just never knew it. What a concept..Sounds like another thread to me.. What famous person realy is hiding behind some of our beloved (Or not so beloved ) Members.. All the best GUy (PS could Thomas Hardy spell ?????)

As for me, I am famous to my 8 year old and my sister in law. To most employers that I have organized or tried to, I am "infamous" when they are in polite company. They use other adjectives in private............hhahahahahaha.

Peter T. with the way he writes will be famous........when he is dead, which those of us who know him hope won't be to soon.

and, Guy, I think I know what you mean about the Famous "meeting" people. I once waited in line at a festival to get Frankie Gavin (of De Dannan) to autograph a CD. Alec Finn was very busy swinging like a monkey on the bars of the stadium and canopy. BTW, Alec is another very large "mick".

I said (after getting Frankies' autograph) as I was leaving, "Hi, and Bye,Alec." He said, and "Doan cha wan' my autograph,too, darlin'?" I said I hadn't wanted to bother his fun, and we had a great hour after that. He did autograph the CD, too.

Well now, if it comes to being realllly famous, one of our number here is buddies with a couple of pretty prominent guys, but I'm not sure if he keeps that a secret or not. Oh what the hell, Mick, if Mr. C. had hung out with you a little more he probably wouldn't have gotten into so much hot water.

MBO, Frank has shared a huge amount with us about his days as a Weaver.

I was kidding about Dylan! But wait a minute here. If Happy Traum knows about us, and he's Dylan's friend.....hmmmm, who knows?

'Course Seamus Kennedy is far too modest to admit it, but he is indeed well known in folk circles. (as we all know, that plus two bucks gets you a ride on the subway.

For what it's worth, I've know of Dick Greenhaus for many years, and it was a true honour to meet him.

(Hewitt's Island if you must) But I'm also a storyteller and do theater sets in New England. Not famous though. But when Jessica told me your story about your neighbor and the well between you, and just said Kendall, I told her you HAD to be Kendall Morse and that you were famous and we used to listen to your tape often before we wore it out and then lost track of it.... guess I need to buy another!

I'm not famous and I agree with whever it was that said that the words "famous" and "folk music" do not go together. Famous is for rock stars. Mbo - get out there and be famous for us!

By the way, you guys talk a lot about Kendall's tape and how good it is. I don't have a tape but I do have the old LP's.

Have any of you seen his TV show?

What Naemanson is referring to is an old thing that ran on NPBS starting in 1980. It was called "In The Kitchen" (lousy name) and it centered around Maine humor. In each segment I had a different storyteller/humorist visit me. We had an old fashioned kitchen set and we just sat around the table swapping lies.
As a result of that TV series, I ended up writing a book on Maine humor. That is still in print 20 years later. We move slow up heah, ayah..

I saw Bob Zentz in an educational spot on Armed Forces TV while stationed in Korea, told someone who knew Bob, who told him. When I finally met Bob, he said "Oh, you're the person from Korea!?" Small world.

Fame and folk..
Folk music, traditional music, and music we sing and play and not just listen to, does not leave much space for fame. Audiences are normally small, and it's easy to talk with performers. There are some more "famous" performers most of us have heard of. I've been at small concerts, and watched someone give the performer the "rock star" treatment, and I bet it embarrasses the hell out of the performer. It's still easy to do when you finally meet someone you've looked up to for a long time, even if they're only famous with you. Jeez - I hope I've never drooled on anyone, but I'll bet I have.
