    Nope.
    Close, but that's not the song, and the women in the audience don't sing the refrain

    Just the thing to watch tonight. Fred's guitar playing is so clean and simple, his Martin 00-28 is beautiful.

    Glad to find the Weavers films-link thread! I've always followed Pete's work, but only recently began to explore the earlier material with The Weavers. Marvelous stuff! So far, I'm loving the live Carnegie LPs. Pete is finally getting a big Folkways CD and book box set, due May 2019 (I started a thread about it).

    You bumped this? Now I have to watch everything all over again. Actually, I'm looking forward to watching them tonight. Those darn commies.

    As I've stated before, I love Fred's guitar playing so much. The real folk style, often copied, never equaled..

    My family knew lots of musicians around us in Wilton/Weston, CT, but sadly I never got to know Fred.

    Great to see those Snader films. Looks like Bear Family included them as a bonus DVD in the big Weavers set.

    Wow, so great to see that early stuff. Ronnie sure had a radiant beauty- great spirit.
    Was Erik Darling in The Weavers for a time? I had a sampler from Vanguard in the early Sixties as a kid called The Sound Of Folk Music and I think he was pictured with The Weavers on that as I recall? I loved that sampler - great stuff.
