Thread Name: Marais and Miranda Documentary
Subject: RE: Marais and Miranda Documentary
A little personal history here. My introduction to "folk music" was through the recordings of Marais & Miranda given to me by a beloved aunt who had very eclectic tastes. That was in the '50s.

The program that Ron and I have put together is, I feel, one that will, as Ron said---and I concur, hopefully introduce them to a whole new generation of people. In addition it will serve to show the many different facets of "folk" music---the formal to the informal. The stories to the protests. Their presentations, you will see, are quite different than what we see today.

I also want to compliment Ron here. He has done a wonderful job in putting all this material together and making a wonderfully comprehensive program from all the great material we have---from Marais and Mirand and a host of stellar names that were their friends.

PS don't forget what Ron said at the beginning--
