Chris in Wheaton Jo Mapes - Is She Still Alive? (39) RE: Jo Mapes - Is She Still Alive? 13 Apr 05

Jo did a wonderful concert for Hogeye music in Evanston a couple of years ago. I'm sure they can help you contact her. They're having Anne Hills this Saturday! Anne or Mark Moss likely could help you too - join the Sing Out yahoo group and ask there.
Jo was the first person that I ever heard sing San Francisco Bay Blues (at the original Old Town School circa '60) - this lead to a life of listening to and trying to play great folk music.
I also got to have dinner once with Odetta and she told me (I think) that it was in high school that Jo introduced Odetta to folk music. There's gotta be a great book in there somewhere.
