Weavermania! Live is touring again. Weavermania, conceived by Michael Smith and Barbara Barrow, has performed to enthusiastic crowds at art centers, folk festivals and music clubs in the USA since 1999.
The Weavers--Ronnie Gilbert, Pete Seeger, Fred Hellerman, and Lee Hays--were America's first commercially successful folk singing group. Their record Tzena, Tzena/Goodnight Irene sold two million copies in 1950. The songs they shared with the world are still favorites for young and old.
Time Magazine called The Weavers, "the most widely-imitated group in the business," and their musical influence can still be heard in The Kingston Trio; Peter Paul & Mary; and in every coffee house and folk club in the country. Pete Seeger, one of the original Weavers, praises the Weavermania! ensemble for its success at capturing the sound and spirit of the original group.
