Subject: Who Was/Is Marilyn Childs
From: GUEST,Doc John

In 1959 the State Department arranged for Cisco Houston, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee and Marilyn Childs to tout India. The first three are well known but can anyone tell me about Marilyn Childs. There's certainly an actress of that name born 1930; is this the person who toured India and if so, why?

The sleeve of the stereo sampler (SMP-4X) refers to a stereo version of this LP as Elektra 143-X and the sampler includes a stereo version of 'Gently Johnny', but the stereo version doesn't seem to have been issued.

-----------------------------

Collectors Choice Music reissued this album on CD.

There are many hits for her name, but not the same person on google.

Best wishes, Thomas.

The correct spelling of her name is Child (singular). That should help with a search.

'Also along with Cisco on that India tour was folksinger Marilyn Child. Cisco describes how he and Marilyn mastered the India national anthem in the Hindi language. He marvels at how well the touring performers were treated by the people of India. He notes "I had one of the grandest times of my life there. I was sad when it was over." Cisco notes that the audiences in India were astonished by the sounds Sonny Terry could get from his small harmonica. Lee and Cisco then discuss some other performers of the recent and continuing so-called "Folk Revival."'

Fixed the title. --mudelf

Hi there,

I know Marilyn and am working on a project with her about her life. I would love to know what you know about the trip to India.
