Thread Name: A new Kate Wolf fan?
Subject: RE: A new Kate Wolf fan?
I first encountered Kate Wolf in the late 1970's at (iirc) the
Northwest Regional Folk Festival. It was a most enjoyable setting,
a former army(?) camp just north of San Francisco (across the Golden Gate bridge). It had a main stage, and 3 outlying stages. One could hear everyone at the main stage, and get a more in-depth exposure
to particular performers at the outlying stages.
Wonderful writer and performer. She is missed!
There are many recordings and some video - all worth hearing - available.
