I am looking for the list of 1964 performers at the Berkeley Folk Festival. Have done the Google thang, and I am not even close. Any ideas where to look and who to ask?

Hope this thread is OK under folklore.

Barry Oliver was someone involved in the production of the Berkeley Folk Festivals in the sixties. I think I have seen his name as performing somewhere in the S.F. Bay Area lately so there may be some way to contact him on the web. Faith Petric (columnist in Sing-Out) was around in those days as part of of the San Francisco Folk Music Club (she still is) and may have some info. I went to the 63 Festival with headliners like Pete Seeger (and his father Charles) and Mance Lipscomb.

Yeah, I was at the 1964 Berkeley Folk Festival. Now let's see what the memory can dredge up.

Barry Olivier actually organized the Berkeley Folk Festivals in the first place, and he occasionally performed in some of them. Sam Hinton did one of the concerts, and as he had in previous Berkeley festivals (I also attended in '60 and '61), he moderated many of the forums (fora) and workshops. Performers and workshop participants included Doc Watson and his son Merle, Joan Baez, Alice Stuart (who got her start in Seattle and now resides here), Mississippi John Hurt, and Almeda Riddle. . . .   Charles Seeger and folklorist Archie Green were also there.

I believe there were a few others, but I'll have to think back, stir it a bit, and see what comes bubbling to the surface.
