The Brothers Four
There are artists who played roles in the Folk Revival who had significant careers beyond folk music. John Phillips founded The Mamas and Papas after The Journeymen disbanded. Roger McGuinn left The Chad Mitchell Trio to help form The Byrds. Kenny Rogers had a stint with The New Christy Minstrels before becoming, well, Kenny Rogers. John Stewart, who replaced Dave Guard in The Kingston Trio, is remembered both as a solo artist and a songwriter, his most successful song being Daydream Believer. John Denver replaced Chad Mitchell in The Chad Mitchell Trio before going on to historic success as a singer and as a songwriter.
As I continue to share my journey and to spin the strands of my career into yarns it is somehow comforting to know that it is part of a larger tapestry.
