If you grew up here in the 60s, you may recall the folk boom, and all 
of the up and coming artists who performed in Boston and Cambridge 
clubs for cheap.  One of them was Eric Von Schmidt, singer, 
songwriter, a talented musician whose songs were performed by Bob 
Dylan, Tom Rush, and many other folkies.  He also jammed with Jim 
Kweskin and the Jug Band and sometimes sang with Maria Muldaur.  Eric 
Von Schmidt battled cancer for several years, and finally succumbed 
yesterday, at age 75.
