Is there a recording of Lorre Wyatt singing "Somos el Barco"? I like the Pete Seeger recording, but it would be nice to hear it from the guy who wrote the song. There's an interesting tidbit at snopes.com about Wyatt and a song he didn't write, "Blowin' in the Wind."

This page says Wyatt also wrote the lyrics for "Sailing Up...Sailing Down." Reinhard Zierke verifies that. Apparently, Wyatt was part of Pete Seeger's Clearwater Project.

Yes, Lorre does still live in Greenfield, MA. On his Folk Legacy album Roots and Branches, which was recorded before he'd finished writing the song, there is an interesting and quite lovely version sung and played with Gordon Bok. However lyrics are only the chorus of the song with improvisations. (However the album has other well-known Lorre songs such as Let It Be Your Lullaby. When Pete recorded Somos El Barco he unfortunately left out one of the best verses by mistake. I will find out from Lorre if there is an accessible recorded version of the full song by him. I would advise getting it as his version is better than Pete's.

He is by the way an absolutely amazing songwriter and singer who had a stroke that disabled him somewhat and cut short his singing career and self confidence. He still continues to turn out unbelievable songs that go right to the heart, but never gets them out there. I'll get back to you on it.

Readers may be interested to know that last night at the Beacon Sloop Club, Pete Seeger sang a song he and Lorre co-wrote, which was just beautiful and has a great sing-along chorus. (They also co-wrote "Wonderful Friends," by the way, which is on Pete's "Pete Seeger at 89" album.) Pete said that Lorre had driven down to visit him recently, so he's doing much better than he had been.

Later on, during the monthly song circle, someone led us in "Somos el Barco."

You can go to www.clearwater.org to buy a CD of the Sloop Singers singing amazing songs, including Lorre singing his "Once a Boat Has Broken From the Shore," and Don McLean's "Tapestry."

Lorre and Pete Seeger have recorded a wonderful collaborative CD full of amazing songs they've written together called A More Perfect Union. It includes Gods Counting on You, Gods Counting on Me, and also features Bruce Springsteen, Emmy Lou Harris, Dar Williams and others. It will be coming out on Sept. 25, but is already advertised on Amazon.

I seem to recall Lorre Wyatt From the Fox Hollow FF. He had an excellent voice and great material. As for Pete, he must be going for the record for making records.

Hi there!

Does anyone know if Lorre Wyatt has an email address, or some sort of contact info? I'm an artist interested in using some of his lyrics in my typographic work, and would like to approach him about it. Any thoughts? Thanks so much for your help!!

Best,
Ciara

Years ago I found a cassette of Lorre's album "Sprouts" at a flea market in Wilmington, Vermont. Somos el Barco is on that album. It may have been a homemade tape rather than a released album.

Just came across the following LP:
BATTLE RS 96126 Teenage Hootenanny - THE MILBURNAIRES '63

Battle is a Bill Grauer (Riverside) label.
The personnel in this group includes LORRE WYATT.

Anyone have further information ????
Thanks!

Best wishes, Thomas.

Thomas Stern- I found this in a quick search:

"Lorre Wyatt was a member of the Milburnaires, a high school activity folk group. They wore jackets and ties, were all men, and were one of those big groups with about ten members. They even made an album they put of themselves that had "Blowin' In The Wind" on it."

Hi Maeve,
Thanks for that link. Pretty bizarre!

Anyone know if there were any recording prior to this,
or any MILLLBURNAIRES after ??

Wyatt made a recent recording with Pete Seeger. Earlier
recordings include one album for FOLK-LEGACY,
and contributions to CLEARWATER.

What others???

Thanks, Thomas.

This is the album of the Fox Hollow Festival with Lorre Wyatt that Elmore mentioned in August last year.
