Thread Name: Obit: John Herald (Greenbriar Boys) (1939-2005)
Subject: RE: Obit: John Herald (Greenbriar Boys)
There are a lot of postings on the john herald site, including one from Syliva Tyson. Also, postings from Bill C. Monroe, the country music author, Tracy Schwarz (formerly of New York City Ramblers); Eric Anderson, Gene Shay (philadelphia DJ and active in Phila. FolK Song Society; Nora Guthrie. Check out johnherald.com for a guest book. There is also mention of memorial services.
How truly sad. My favorite was "At the End of a Long Lonely Day," so beautiful and hauntingly sung.
I was listening to Tom Rush and "Daddy Bones" accompanied him on Do Re Mi and Long Gone. Impossible to miss Herald's voice in the background. He also backed up Buffy Sainte Marie on Many a Mile (again, as Daddy Bones).
Curious as to no comments from Doc Watson, Ian Tyson, Bob Yellin, Baez and so many others he played with. Very sad, indeed.
