Subject: Pete Seeger and Wolf Trap on PBS
From: GUEST,BigDaddy

Does anyone remember a regular (possibly weekly) music show on PBS, circa late sixties, early seventies, hosted by Pete Seeger? Guests included Elizabeth Cotton and the Beers Family. Also a show I believe was called "Live at Wolf Trap," same era? Any idea if these shows are available on video? I also recall a PBS show from that time period featuring Bascom Lamar Lunsford. "American Roots" music, indeed.

Somebody or something called Norman Ross Publishing, Inc., sells videotapes of Rainbow Quest for thirty bucks a crack.

The library can get some of those Rainbow Quest tapes if'n you don't want to buy them. And the PBS show was part of the "American Experience" series. "Bascom Lamar Lunsford, Ballad of a Mountain Man". It's a good'un. Your library should be able to get that too. Handy thing these libraries.

We've had some other threads on the Rainbow Quest series and like Rex said, a lot of the tapes are available at the library. If you're around a larger city, it should be no problem at all. Check the one with Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee.

What about the Wolf Trap shows? Were these part of the "American Experience" series as well? When I do a Google search I only get recent Wolf Trap items.

I worked on the Wolf Trap specials for PBS. They were in the seventies, the early ones. Baryshnikof, Martha Graham, and Bubbles Silverman (in Daughter of the Regiment)are the ones that come to mind.

It was (is) a great performance space.

I don't think they are available comercially because the rights were not cleared in perpetuity.

Pete and Arlo in concert at Wolf Trap was great - I've been looking for a video for YEARS.

There's a 1993 concert at Wolftrap with Pete and Arlo here. Click the second playlist. This isn't the PBS special, though. Most of the Rainbow Quests that were published on DVD are on YouTube, too. Only 6 DVDs seem to be available for sale, representing fewer than half of the thirty or so episodes that were originally made.
