Here goes the long-shot question of the year:
About 1972, this guy performed at a little coffeehouse in Chicago.(The Broken Wall). He appeared under the name Jonathan Pearthree. I was told he was a well known figure on at least the local folk scene, who wouldn't appear under his real name because we couldn't pay scale;
I never got around to asking the staff member who booked him who he really was. Is there any soul left alive who might actually have a clue?

There was a Jonathan Pearthree who played and was active for several years in the mid-1960's in the Baltimore, MD folk scene. I used to work at the Crack of Dawn Coffee House and he was one of our regular performers. Try contacting the Baltimore Folk Music society. Someone there might know something. Also, Bob Cadwalader, who owned the coffee house at the time was still in the Maryland area. A professional pilot, I last heard of him managing a small airport in, I think, Howard County, MD.

Hope this helps. Seems like we are talking about the same person.

Jonathan moved to Los Angeles around 1985 or so... we have lost touch with him since then. Stuart and Carolyn Gordon may know more about his current ventures, they also live in Los Angels area.

I'm tryin' to believe that someone still came across this: ) Thanks, Vic, Guest, and Megan. It all comes out rather odd. As I mentioned, I was told the gent was performing under an assumed name. But I took it that he was a known reputable performer who would not have been apt to snitch someone's real name. I'm remembering a solidly built figure with a very full light or white mustache and a cowboy hat.

Jonathan grew up in a section of Baltimore called Bolton Hill, as did I, in the early to mid sixties. In the summer of1965 I started to teach myself guitar. Jonathan kindly took me under his wing and showed me things he knew, which helped me immeasurably in my early foray. He was a colorful figure on the local folk scene for awhile.

I dated him a few times in the mid 60's, fresh outta high school and also working at the Crack of Dawn (and the several incarnations that preceded it in that basement). Sam Bass & I worked the kitchen on weekend nights and I waitressed at times. Yes, stocky build, solid looking, blond. He had a beautiful inlay on his guitar - a pear tree with three pears. Cowboy boots seem right.
