Erik Darling, R. I. P.

Folk music legend dies at 74 - "Erik Darling, a folk musician who performed with The Tarriers, The Weavers and The Rooftop Singers, died Saturday of Burkitt's lymphoma in a hospice center near Chapel Hill, N.C. He was 74."

I've put tunes from a couple of Darling's groups on the jukebox to the right.

Wasn't Alan Arkin with the Tarriers at one time?

Bill Crider said...

Yes. And he also published some short stories in a couple of the SF digest mags during that era.

Two in GALAXY in the latter '50s: "Whiskaboom" and "People Soup." And then on to Second City.
