ABOUT THE MUSICIANS:
Like Woody Guthrie, DAVID FENIMORE hopped a freight train once and has parlayed that experience into an entire career of impersonating a working-class folk singer. In his spare time he teaches in the English Department at UNR and spends his summers donning wigs, beards, and nineteenth-century frock coats onstage for various Chautauqua venues around the country. At home in Truckee with his wife Amy Horne, he diddles away his days on his great aunt’s baby grand piano, which he plays about as well as Woody played the guitar.
TIM GORELANGTON is a Reno-area folksinger and songwriter. Much of the inspiration for his music can be found in the people and places of the American West. The songs he writes have much the same background as the stories of old. Pete Seeger is one of his heroes and he shares Pete's vision of inclusion, community, justice, and the power of song. Tim accompanies himself on a vintage Guild 12-string guitar and an original Vega "Pete Seeger" model banjo. He encourages everyone to sing along!
