Re: Coffeehouses 1963-1968
My little band of pretenders played for two summers at a place in Birmingham, Michigan called the Raven Gallery. We were never the featured group, but we did open many times for Josh White, Jr. Wonderful man who gave us a lot of encouragement. The venue was owned by Herb Cohen a quintessential folkie promoter. They drew well during those days and Herb was fair with his payoffs. Great experience.
I've linked an article, Les. If you need more, I could probably hook you up with some aging folkies of that era.
Joe, do you remember the years that this venue was active? thanks!
