Betsy Siggins has been an integral part of the folk music world since the late 1950’s when she and her roommate, Joan Baez, starting hanging around the Cambridge scene at Club 47. She worked at the famous folk club until it closed in the 1960’s. After that, she worked with The Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. and also paved the way for homeless shelters catering to AIDs patients in New York City. In the podcast, we hear some of these fascinating stories from Siggins. We also get a glimpse into Betsy's early roots with her family life that included some classical music influences as well as a love for early country radio. I honestly could have talked to her for days.
