    Lovely.

    (though I cannot fail to mention that “And When I Die” was one of those Laura Nyro songs that others made more popular than her own version)

    RIP. They had some really nice songs. I saw Paul Stookey play just a few months ago at an awards dinner for a local political activist organization. I think he lives in Maine most of the time now and he still puts out new solo albums. He did exactly as you said- stood up on an empty stage, sang and played his acoustic guitar, and talked about justice. And also like you mentioned, I didn’t now his last name either until I saw him play.

    Anti-celebrities. A marketing disaster by current standards. Few people ever knew any of their last names. No fireworks, no crew of gymnasts jumping around the stage. Just the three huddled as close together on an empty stage as their equipment would allow and talkin crazy talk about justice, civil rights, a better world.

    And that voice.
