This folk group holds a special place in my heart as they were the first concert I ever attended. That was many, many years ago but I still have all their albums stored away and remember the lyrics to Tom Dooley, Riding The MTA and Scotch and Soda. They emerged from the San Francisco North Beach Club scene to take the country by storm and bring the rich tradition of folk music into the mainstream for the first time. The faces have changed but the songs remain timeless.
Information concerning the Lebanon Opera House summer opera series will be forthcoming.
