Subject: RE: Toronto Folk History
Growing up in Hamilton and Dundas, I was first exposed to live folk music at the Black Swan on Houston St. S., The Ebony Knight, The Happy Medium and a few other coffee houses. Jackie Washington, Cedric Smith and Al Cromwell were the first musicians I recall seeing as a teenager in the early sixties. Jackie became and has remained one of my musical heros.
I've asked this before, but does anyone know whether Ted Schaffer or John Layton are still involved in music?
