James Durst

James Durst and his wife Madhumita gave an impromptu concert in the living room when they visited with his mother and sister.He now lives upstate New York, not too far from one of his idols, Pete Seeger. James most recent CD is called Work O' the Weavers. He and some friends have put together a concert of songs from the Weavers. Even Pete calls it "Fantastic!"

We had first met James while he was in Japan more than ten years ago. He gave several benefit concerts for BRC-J and has donated many of his cassette tapes and videos.
