Subject: Obit: Evelyn Beers Burnstine (Fox Hollow)
Heard today that Evelyn Beers Burnstine passed away. I'm sure more than a few of us here remember the Fox Hollow Folk Festival, which she and her first husband Bob Beers founded in the 1960s, and which continued until 1980. Amazing to think of who appeared there over the years: Michael Cooney, Utah Phillips, Dan Smith, David Bromberg, Boys of the Lough (think Fox Hollow must've been one of the first places they played in the US), John Herald, Leon Redbone (!) and even some Canadian guy named Bruce Cockburn. And that's just a sampling.
(I don't have any other info as to her passing, or funeral/memorial services.)
