I was delighted to find something about Lee Hays.
It reminded me that several years ago, I came across a picture, of Lee Hays and my mother, taken in the south somewhere--Arkansas or North Carolina?--at some progressive camp,I think.
Having grown up listening and singing Weavers and Almanac Singers' songs, It's something I cherish.
By the way, does anyone know anything about a summer camp called Woodlands in Saugerties, NY? In the bio of Moe Asch, it mentions that John Cohen of the NLCR was a music counselor there. I went there as a young kid, but don't remember much.
