About Carolyn Hester

Carolyn Hester Singer

"Carolyn Hester is one of the originals—one of the small but determined gang of ragtag, early—'60s folk singers who cruised the coffee shops and campuses, from Harvard Yard to Bleeker Street, convinced that their music could help change the world.

The political and musical offspring of Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie and the Weavers, performers such as Hester, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Tom Paxton, Richard Farina (to name a very few) were among the vanguard of the new music of the '60s, the first surging energy of a wave that would eventually engulf a generation of American youth."

- Don Heckman Los Angeles Times
