A Folk Concert in Town Hall, New York

Jean Ritchie, Oscar Brand and David Sear
A Folk Concert in Town Hall, New York

This live recording of three very different singers presents Jean Ritchie's southern ballads, Oscar Brand's sea songs and "atomic blues," and Dave Sear's repertoire of Scottish songs. The three enjoy working together, and their enthusiasm is audible in both the music and the spoken introductions to several tracks.
