Thread Name: Need info: Gateway Singers
Subject: RE: Help: Gateway Singers
I may be wrong but I seem to recall a Gateway Singers back in the Forties who predated The Weavers. Woody, Cisco Houston, Sis Cunningham ( Little boxes on the hillside...) and another man.

Might have to go into the deep archives for that one.

As for Dave Guard & THe Whiskeyhill Singers...Guard quit The Kingston Trio because he wanted to do more 'complex' songs/arrangements. The Whiskeyhills were: Guard, Dave 'Buck' Wheat, who was the Kingston Trio's bass player, Judy Henske and Cyrus Faryar who later was a member of The Modern Folk Quartet with Tad Diltz, who later became the photographer of the Rock Stars.

The Whiskeyhills bombed big time, Henske grew to hate Guard who moved to Australia for a time and passed away in the 1980's, I believe.
