Thread Name: Toronto Folk History
Subject: RE: Toronto Folk History
Hi folks. Bob Bossin put me on to this discussion.
I;m working on a book on Canadian folk music and have delved fairly deeply into the Toronto scene. I'm actually off to Toronto today (from Vancouver) and I hope to talk to one of the owners of La Coterie where folk singing in public (aside from the left wing scene)started in 1957.
Anyways... about Hoot. There are nine issues in two runs. The last one came out in early 1967. I have put together a complete collection of Hoot as well as all nine of Sing and String, the earlier and other Toronto folk mag.
If anyone wants info on Hoot I am happy to oblige... BUT I am pretty busy and takes me a while.
Nice to read this stuff...
