Comments: John Stewart, RIP

Yeah, my Republican parents (Republican enough that my mom cried when JFK was elected President) also listened to the Kingston Trio. Are they the ones who did "Stewball" and "Jimmy Brown"?

The only version of Stewball I've heard was PP&M. Jimmy Brown I don't know, but I don't think it was the Kingston Trio's. They were most famous for Tom Dooley, one of their early songs which was recorded when Dave Guard was part of the group. John Stewart replaced Dave Guard.
