    Historical / Biographical Note

    Manheim Fox was a 30-year-old producer in 1965 when he presented the first New York Folk Festival at Carnegie Hall. The festival, a retrospective of folk music running over four evenings, also included two workshops and a children's concert. Fox had a background in music publishing and theatrical management, and was inspired to organize a festival after hearing singer-songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie perform in Kentucky.
