Different note... I grew up with Tom Lehrer from 1955 to 1957. Came down from Maine to visit my girl friend... now bride, at Sargent College in Harvard Square... There was a bar... (damn... can't remember the name) where the students hung out... block from Harvard Square... (please help on this... driving me crazy). Dimey beers, long narrow bar... Lehrer would be about in the middle, giving forth with those incredible lyrics... "Be Prepared" or "I got it from MaryJane" ... These were impromptu sessions... just luck, if you were there... In '56 and '57 there wasn't a single person at my school, who didn't know every word, every song, by heart.
Part of our culture.

I also think of this very funny and lovingly made movie, "A Mighty Wind"--here is the trailer for it:

And we must not forget Judy Collins. I was lucky enough to see her live in my freshman year of college in 1976.

Wordlessly watching
He waits by the window
And wonders
At the empty place inside
Heartlessly helping himself to her bad dreams
He worries
Did he hear a good-bye? Or even hello...

Good stuff, reminds of college.

I love it all. I love folk music too much to not know how to play (an instrument).
