Folkways Records, now Smithsonian Folkways, 1976.
I used to play a lot of music when I was young, living in the Hudson Valley. However, I was never a professional. Despite this, when I was 20, my friend, mentor and hero Pete Seeger - for reasons I have yet to fathom, but probably because I was always kicking around his and Toshi's house and they didn't know what else to do with me - asked me to record with him for Folkways Records, now Smithsonian Folkways. I have hardly ever performend "formally" on stage, save for very rare occasions. Last time was in March of 2008, in Albany with friends Happy and Artie Traum. Looking back, I'm really glad I did it because Artie passed only four months later, and it was most certainly my last chance to play with him.
