The free men in Paris


A quick trip to Paris last weekend to film two veterans of the early Sixties busking scene, both of whom worked with Davy Graham. Joe Locker on the right is an American who came over straight after University with his banjo having learnt his folk music from his mother. He played the British circuit with great success and stayed. Peter Golding on the left, came to Paris with his harmonica and stayed at the famous Beat Hotel whilst busking sometimes in direct competition with Joe and Davy. Their stories are wonderful and numerous of the era, some of which will make the Davy Graham documentary and some will just appear here.
