Coulda sworn Frank Proffitt was on the list. I know he was at one time. DK about Tom Paley's current viability status, but he was mentioned by someone.   
I'll probably update the list when we get another couple dozen names to add. (I hope that won't be many who recently join those ranks.)

And James Copper whom someone else listed would have been 175. And I doubt if John England would have been a lot younger. So why exclude The Boi Harry?

And with that, I'd like to mention Elizabeth Knepp (or Knipp). Would be pushing 400 by my reckoning.

There are hundreds of "Obit" threads in the forum that may be for folk singers (folk musicians), but there are too many to sort through at once.
Here, for starters, are a few for people whom I don't think have been added to our list yet and who, as far as I know, may fit the category to some degree:

If you think any of these people should be on our "list," please post those names. Some of them aren't known primarily as "folk singers" but some may have been folkies of a sort.

I'll break up the rest of these into smaller segments. Don't want to overwhelm you.

I wait 400 years to make a joke and I lose it by 24 days. In the world of esprit d'escalier the steps are awfully steep!

No need to re-mention Will Shemp, Mrs. Knipp, and other multi-centennarians. They've already been removed from the compiled list. : D

Alright, I'll pick just one more out, even though she would be well over age. Cecilia Costello is now dead. I point that out because once before in her lifetime she was reported dead in the local paper. A neighbour came round, knocked on the door, and when Cecilia opened it, asked the classic question: Mrs Costello, you're not really dead, are you?

Please include Win Stracke and Archie Green in this list. They were both important.

I think that this thread is motivated by the fact that we lost one of the greatest of all,
Doc Watson, recently.


This mass obituary emphasizes that it's important to keep the tradition of folk music
alive in whatever way we can since many of the former carriers of the tradition have passed.

Is John Herald still alive? Or John Stewart with the KT?

Pete Seeger is ninety-two strong and as Springsteen has said, he has "outlived the bastards" such as McCarthy and his detractors. America's "tuning fork" is still resonant.

John Herald died in 2005. John Stewart died in 2008. Pete Seeger celebrated his 93rd birthday on May 2012.
