Bojangles info about Paul Clayton?? (63* d) RE: info about Paul Clayton?? 11 Mar 98


Art T. This is my first time on this cyberspace board, but It blows me away! Jim Kweskin and I were a duo that performed regularly at the Club 47 Mt. Auburn in Cambridge Mass in the winterof '59 and sping of '60. I had a gig at The Laughing Buddah in St Louis right after school and while I was gone Jim put together the Jug Band. I had been studying folk music at Harvard under Professor Albert Friedman..Jim was at Boston University. Jim came and stayed with me in 69 or '70 but I lost track of him after that although I know that he got hooked up with Mel Lyman, a charismatic guru, and Jim's recordings seemed to stop there. Any idea where Jim is now? Other luminaries around the Club 47 scene were Tom Rush, Fritz Richmond,Bill Kieth,Debbie Green and Rolf Kanh, Rick von Schmidt and more. Joan Baez a year earlier had started playing there for pocket change until Bob Gibson (I think) got her up on stage at the Newport Folk Festival and she was immediately catapulted to a position where pocket change wouldn't do. I would much appreciate any info on Jim.
