I have the first of the three albums the Cumberland Three did, the original one. I paid good money for it on eBay years ago. I never thought I'd hear those songs again. It had been about 20 years. One night I went to see John in a very small venue on the Hudson in NY. John Birchler, you know the place! Actually, it was my first time seeing John since his Trio days. I took a few things to try and get him to sign. After the show I approached him, and he was most gracious. He only asked that I wait until he meeted and greeted the others that were there. When he was done, he sat down at a table with me and started going through everything. I confess to have brought along quite a bit. But he signed it all. And drew some little artwork on things too. But when he came to that Cumberland Three album, he was floored. He couldn't believe I had one. He told me how he hadn't seen that in many years and was surprised there were still any around. He signed it and it was one of the best nights of my life, sitting and chatting with my hero, John Stewart! Here's a picture a friend took that night.
