AH..Cambridge. The only ones I heard of from the JKJB are Fritz Richmond and Geoff Muldaur. Geoff and Rick Von Schmidt both played (on separate occassions) at the great New Haven Health Food Supermarket concerts - yes that's right - the balcony of a super market served as the local folk venue for a time. I believe Rick lives in Westport, CT now. and Geoff in Northern CA. Last I heard, Fritz lived in Rhode Island. Geoff played with Fritz and, I think, Pierre Beauregard (harmonica). His daughter Jenny sang on a couple of tunes as well. Sam and Ann Charters were there - Sam had to remind Geoff of his aborted 1961 trip, broom in hand, to Lemon Jefferson's grave.
I think I'll go have a listen to JKJB's Garden of Joy album - it's been a while.
