has ballads for all
By CAPTAIN TRASH
"It was a damn good time",
burbled my companion follow-
ing the lead of the Musical Par-
ty last night at the Ark. '
The Party, composed of Mich-
ael' Cooney, Larry Hanks, J o e
Hickerson, Barry O'Neill and
Roger Renwick, five of the best
.traditional folk singers around,
presented a pleasant conglom-
eration of folk ballads never
heard in these parts of . the
Renwick got thngs going with
a lively Welsh bar room so n g
which turned into several rounds
of drinking mens' tunes from as
S many different parts of t h e
world which would have put
many a man under the table
From drinking to sailing and
from sailing to the real life,-
another few rounds of music
With the five crunched close
together, and no elbow room to
spare the group was a little slow
',;,getting off; each taking his turn
at singing with good support
from the audience.
eThe oldest of the group, Hick-
_ erson has been working at tra-
ditional folk music a long time.
A graduat of Indiana Univer-
sity, Hickerson has founded
many folk societies around t h e
country, and has, since 1963,
been a member of the Archives
of Folk Songs in Washington.
In. last night's show, as well
as in his recent record (Folk
. Legacy-FSI-39) Hickerson dis-
plays an amazing knowledge of
folkand ethnological songs, and

gave a distinctive showing with
the main emphasis on fun.
Cooney, who started way back
in the taverns and coffeehouses
in San Diego, began slowly last
night,. but pulled some slick
riffs on his banjo and auto harp
in "Come Alonog Cindy" t h a t
jelled the group and set t h e
stage for a bouncing evening.
Hanks, the country addition
to the group and perhaps t h e
one with the best voice, gave a
very nice rendition of "Roll On
Columubia" an old Woody Guth-
rie tune, that hit close to home.
In addition to fine guitar
playing, Hanks was smooth on
the bluegrass banjo in tunes like

record) O'Neills main trade is

traditional folk ballads of Can-
ada, Ireland and England. He
sang a number of, them last
night but, unfortunately lacked
a good voice.
The fifth of the quintet, Ren-
wick, a native of Canada, is
presently studying folk lore and
mythology at UCLA, concentrat-
ing on Canadian and Anglosax-
In addition to playing, Ren-
wick takes a fairly hard stance
on the separation movement in
Quebec, noting that "I really
can't go along with the kidnap-
ing of the FLQ, but then no re-
volition ever took place without
In all it was a very pleasant ex-
perience last night, a nice
throwback to yesteryears which
would have been complete if the
fireplace behind the five had
been crackling sharply.
It would undoubtedly help if
one had some background in the
traditional ballads (which I, re-
gretfully do not) but even so
the quintet presented a truly en-
joyable, funfilled evening in a
