Re: Coffeehouses 1963-1968
No disrespect intended Glen, I was actually talking about you yourself when I mentioned Mr Lees. I became good friends with John Uren a number of years before he died and also have a connection with Ms Anderson as well. I ran across an ad in the Calgary Herald regarding a couple of dates you played with Joni in 63 and was interested to find out if you could tell me anything else about that date and the Depression in general.
Here's a link to the ad: https://jonimitchell.com/chronology/detail.cfm?id=2249
And a link to a story about John and the Depression: https://jonimitchell.com/library/view.cfm?id=1336
Happy to speak with you on or off the list, and thanks to all for any more coffeehouse info!
Hi there : my father (the late Mr. Lees) had nothing to do with coffeehouses. On the other hand I (Glen)spent a lot of time in coffeehouses, and shared the bill at John Uren's "Depression" in Calgary with Joni Anderson in the time period you mentioned.
How can I be of service?
Regards ............... Glen
I'm doing research on Canadian/US coffeehouses of the 60s, and would love to hear from anyone who was 'on the scene' in...
Calgary (The Depression, Folk & Blues Club)
Ottawa (Le Hibou)
Philadelphia (2nd Fret, Main Point)
Detroit (Wisdom Tooth, Chess Mate, Living End, Rathskeller)
...in the 1963-1968 time period. Mr Lees, perhaps?
