I posted a thread a while back but did not have any luck with it. I am still looking for an old friend of mine. Steve Brainard is a banjo and guitar player of some prominance. I lost track of him many years ago. Has anyone heard of him or does anyone know him. I am very interested in locating him. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, Fred

Have you tried the online White Pages?? They work wonders if he's on...and I suggest trying a few different ones...every search page gives different results...Good Luck!

I can't help you out,but i thought this to be an interesting thread, so I thought I'd throw out a couple of lost people of my own: 1. Richard Eshelman, last known to be in Chula Vista Calif. 2. Lonnie Sweet, last known to be in Lebanon Ore. I have searched the web over and have found nothing on these two.

Dusterjim: I can't help you on your lost people, but if we can keep this thread going, it could be a help to a lot of people. I invite others to list someone that they have lost contact with.

I'm still looking for Warren Povey, a fellow who studied play-writing and sang informally among friends in the University District of Seattle, circa 1948/49. The Yahoo White Pages didn't help, I'm afraid, but thanks, Kat m'luv, for the link.

I'm looking for myself. About 20 years old, dark wavy hair, just a hint of a mustache....All I see when I look in the mirror is some old fart that I don't recognize at all!

Wow, I love this. Two people I'd love to get in touch with: Alison Grant, mid 50s, loves folk music, and thirty years ago pawned her Guild guitar so that we could pay the rent. She was from Cleveland, lived in Toronro, and then disappeared.
Buddy Walker: (an alias) He was a bounder and a rounder and took young impressionable me out west where I started to get payed for being a folksinger. He wrote poetry and had a wonderful sister named Joanne Sherrin who lived in Edmonton. I'd love to make contact with either of them.

Hey Banjor, that's great, I think that we are looking for the same guy. I'll let you know if I find him.

I tried to find a friend a few years back and searched the net left messages everywhere possible. eventually I wrote to his last known address, addressed to "the people who live there"..... and explained the situation..... well they knew someone who knew someone else... and a few months later ... out of the blue I got a letter from my friend now living in California.

anything's worth a shot.....

Good luck

Banjer, Wait a minute..I may be able to help. I have a friend, who I knew in the village 30 years ago and we have remained friends, but I haven't seen for 30 years. We just talked on the phone. He has seen me through two marriages, neither knew he and I were in contact. He saw me through two children, and various other happenings in my life. All on the phone. I saw him through a bad marriage, the death of his mother, loneliness, and various other things in his life. I love him.

Well, last month he called me at work and invited me to lunch. Now remember, we hadn't seen each other in 30 years. When I met him, he looked so much older, and heavier, and balder. When we sat down to lunch, I looked into his eyes for a long time. Guess what I found? There was my Joey, young and funny and warm and beautiful. His eyes hadn't changed at all.

Now we have lunch now and then, and we still talk on the phone for hours. We'll be friends forever.

So go take a look into the eyes of the old fart in that mirror. You might be surprised.

Love, annap

Well, I'll try that, Annap. But it seems for that face in the mirror to look like the one I'm searching for it shouldn't be wearing glasses. When I take the glasses off, all I'll see is blob of some kind in the mirror...But, I will give it try next time I get in front of the looking glass. Maybe the answer is to do like Alice and go THROUGH the looking glass. Thanks for the insight, you are right! It is not how one looks, but what is inside that really counts. What's that old ditty we sang as kids, something about:

"I know my face is no star,
But I don't mind it,
'Cause I'm behind it,
The folks out in front get the jar!


So instead of looking for the 20 year old face I should look to make sure that all that was BEHIND that 20 year old face aged well and prospered!

So much for the thread creep, we return you now our original program, "Lost Friends"

The Web is good for finding a lot of things. there are many services that offer a "white pages" phone, address, and e-mail listing. the one I use most is http://www.switchboard.com/, mostly because the URL is very easy to remember. Most of the services seem to be about the same - I'll bet they get their information from the same source. Here's the "Anywho" directory service provided by AT&T.
When I'm trying to find people (which is part of what I do for a living), I get best results by finding somebody who knows somebody who knows somebody. Alison did exactly the right thing. Make a list of everything you know about the person and of the people who might know something about the person, and start making connections and making phone calls. Maybe the first people you call won't know the person himself, but maybe they can lead you to parents or siblings or somebody else who does know. It's important to have a good reason for finding the person, and to be willing to explain honestly what you're doing and why - people like to help, but they like to feel sure that they're doing the right thing.
I had a friend who was looking for somebody who taught her guitar lessons at the Old Town School of Folk Music in the 1950's. Being the astute investigator I am, a light bulb popped on in my head and I made a logical connection, and I knew just the person to ask - most of you know him, too. Sure enough, he knew somebody who knew somebody, and my friend had an e-mail from her teacher within a few days.

Hi Banjoman,

Just wondering if the Steve Brainard you're looking for the the one who used to run the Buddhi in OKC back in the early '60s.

If he is and you locate him, let him know that his place went a long way toward keeping me sane when I was stationed at Tinker AFB. Heard some great acts there, and later at the Sword and Stone. Unfortunately now who I saw where is starting to blur in my memory, except I know Hoyt Axton and Ian and Sylvia were at the former and Mance Lipscombe was at the latter.

Ah, they were great times.....

cheers,

ddw

To DDW in Windsor: Yes, the Steve Brainard is the one that owned the Buddhi in O.K City. I spent almost every night there and also at the Sword and Stone. I was a house act there. I wonder if we know each other. I was at the S & S every night that Mance was there. Drop me a note on the Email. fwafbc38@ria.net. Anxious to hear from you. The last address I have for Steve and Bobbie was in Eden Plain, Minnesota. But they are not there. I've tried every where I know to find them. Hope we keep in touch.

Guest, this thread was started 15 years ago. The OP hasn't posted here since 2006. What is your purpose in hunting down and re-opening this thread?

If Steve Brainard is an entertainer and he's not anywhere on the Internet, there's probably a good reason. He may be dead, he may be incapacitated, or he may want seclusion.

If you know him, tell him about the thread and let him decide what to do. Otherwise, give him his privacy.

Mr. Brainard does not appear to be dead, incapacitated, or in seclusion:

Tulsa Coffee Houses of the Past

Steve Brainard sings "Sweet Substitute"

Looks like he's still performing periodically in the Guthrie, Oklahoma area.
