IsraBox - Music is Life! The Easy Riders aren't mentioned in any reference books on folk music -- indeed, one will find no entry on them in any reference work on popular music of the 20th century, despite the fact that they had a massive hit in early with the song "Marianne," and also wrote songs that were recorded by everyone from the Kingston Trio to Dean Martin to Doris Day.
In fact, the Easy Rider trio -- Terry Gilkyson, Richard Dehr, and Frank Miller -- occupy what is usually thought of as the "lost" years of the folk revival, between the demise of the Weavers and the commercial success of the Kingston Trio. There were other folk artists recording during those years, of course, including Ed McCurdy and Oscar Brand, primarily on smaller independent labels like Elektra.
The Easy Riders were unique, however, in that they recorded for Columbia Records, a major label. If they have slipped between the cracks of scholarship and popular memory, it's probably because they were never political in the manner of the Weavers -- though Richard Dehr had worked at one time with Woody Guthrie and several future blacklistees -- and were 20 years older than the Kingston Trio, and, thus, never seemed on the cutting edge of a musical phenomenon.
The trio of Terry Gilkyson, Richard Dehr, and Frank Miller hasn't endured in the public's memory as long as the Weavers or the Kingston Trio, but they provide the link between the two phases of the '50s folk revival. And they produced a lot of good music. Hamilton Terry Gilkyson b. June 17,Phoenixville, PA began his musical training in grade school, and majored in music during his two years at the University of Pennsylvania.
He learned guitar on his own, listening to other peoples' music. His experience working at a ranch in Arizona led him to join the Army's cavalry during World War II, just in time to see his mounted unit turned into a mechanized battalion.
After the war, he married and headed to California to try and make it as a musician. He learned key parts of the basic folk music repertory from the books of John and Alan Lomax and got a gig with Armed Forces Radio as "The Solitary Singer" from through He was aware during those years of the suspicions that were starting to be raised about the politics of various folk artists and their repertories, and he steered clear of involvement with leftist union activities and excessively controversial songs -- in this sense, his work was closer in spirit to that of Burl Ives, as well as closer in style to that of Richard Dyer-Bennett than to, say, Pete Seeger or Woody Guthrie.
During this period, he landed a contract with Decca Records and also began making appearances in movies.Select a track from spotify. Blue Mountain Album Added by wally creek.
