Thread Name: Folk Singers who Have Died
Subject: Folk Singers who Have Died
I'm trying to come up with a list of well known or fairly well known folk singers that I can think of who have passed away. For the purpose of this thread I am only looking for artists who were primarily involved with folk or considered a folk singer although they may have played other music during their career.

1). Sandy Denny
2). Tim Hart
3). Jim Croce
4). Kate Wolf
5). Mary Travers (of Peter, Paul & Mary)
6). Stan Rogers
7). Mimi Farina-Baez (Joan Baez's younger sister)
8). John Denver
9). Dan Fogelberg
11).Kate McGarrigle
12).Eva Cassidy
13).John Martyn
14).John Stewart
15).Harry Chapin

These are 15 names that came to mind right away but I know there are more folkies that have left us.
