Thank you Kat,
It certainly was a painful month. Losing Sandy Paton, Mike Seeger and Sam Hinton. But thoughts of there being a "Last Folksinger" are vanquished by the great enthusiasm for traditional music that I read here in the Mudcat community. For me, these three will live on in the music we sing.

While thinking about Sandy, Mike and Sam, I stumbled across a poster for the last Fox Hollow (1980). On it, Evelyne Beers wrote, "Every time someone opens a fiddle case, tunes a guitar, puts on their dancing shoes, or just stands in the rain, Fox Hollow will be recalled with laughter and tears as we remember events that have changed us all. For many, Fox Hollow has become a legend; that means it can never really cease. It is carried on in our hearts. 'The seeds have been sown...'"

I think her words could also be said about each of these three men.
