The Weavers were formed in the late 1940s by Mr. Hellerman along with Pete Seeger, Lee Hays, and Ronnie Gilbert.
Kenneth Weene's insight:
How greatly did The Weavers affect me? Read Broody New Englander for the answer. For the moment allow me to mourn yet another musical icon from my youth. "Goodnight, Fred"

When I hear talent, I just sit up and take notice. This is a sound you will want to hear and hear again.

Kenneth Weene's insight:

A great talent. I am really looking forward to having Nick as a guest on It Matters Radio.

These Grammy-winners don't want you to pay for their album. They want you to pay for someone else's.

Wilco and Taylor Swift are just two of the big-name artists speaking up for the little guys.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

I know lots of people see using the Internet to obtain bootleg copies of music, books, and movies as their right. The reasoning is the same as saying, well if the farmer is going to let those apples sit on his tree he should expect me to help myself. In Maine, where I set "Broody New Englander," that attitude would earn you a fanny full of rock-salt courtesy of the farmer's shotgun. Reality is that if we don't support the arts, they will dry up and there will only be what the few want the many to see, hear, and read. So, yeah, buy some music by the little guys (and books)

Landfill Harmonic

Kenneth Weene's insight:

This is just incredibly wonderful. They are giving music to the poor and dignity to us all.
