Thread Name: John Hartford - Update
Subject: RE: John Hartford - Update
Travelled in about May of 1973 to Johnson City Tennessee, it seems, to see John Hartford and Norman Blake at the Student Union or some such at East Tennessee State University; (could this have been so? Does the memory still serve?) He arrived in an old Chevy II, walked in,captured the entire tribe, acknowledged his victory with a smile and then in robinhoodlike fashion set each and every one free to return to their separate roamings with new songs and thoughts, many of which remain today.Again and again over the years his vision remained true.Somehow am reminded of John Chapman; i.e. Johnny Appleseed, also of the Ohio River country and with that sort of footprint, or so it again seems. Please keep us up on this topic. Thank you.
