Boing Boing: 60s folk music motherload on Pete Seeger’s “Rainbow Quest” TV show

New-to-me, from Boing Boing: 60s folk music motherload on Pete Seeger’s “Rainbow Quest” TV show. “My friend Peter Sugarman recently pointed me to this amazing gem. In 1965-1966, Pete Seeger had a local NYC TV show called Rainbow Quest. On it, he would sing and play guitar and banjo and he would have guest on. The guest artists are like a who’s who of mid-60s folk music: Tom Paxton, the Clancy Brothers, Lead Belly, Richard and Mimi Fariña, Jean Ritchie, Bernice Reagon, Doc Watson, Buffy St. Marie, Johnny and June Carter Cash, and countless others.” All 38 episodes are available on YouTube.
