Hands down, *the* moment came at Fox Hollow 1973, when Sandy and Caroline Paton were on stage at the moment Nixon resigned and sang "Only Remembered for What We Have Done."
Then Evelyne Burnstine sang "Seasons of Peace", noting that the aides had turned the microphones off when they sang it in the Nixon White House. A girl sitting next to me in the audience said to us, "When this is done, start 'America'." "Why?" I said. "BEcause this is an important moment in the history of our country and if we're going to sing about peace we should sing about America." So about three of us started it, and within a few words I think the whole audience had picked it up.
I have lots of other great memories of the folk scene in general and Fox Hollow in particular, but that was really special. And if The Resident can please god get voted out in November, can Sandy and Caroline lead the singing?
