>> Eric Von Schmidt battled cancer for several years, and 
finally succumbed yesterday, at age 75.

I heard the news about Von Schmidt on the way back from Vermont today. I think he
wrote or adapted "Wasn't That A Mighty Storm" which Tom Rush and Nanci
Griffith covered. Think he was mentioned more than a few times in a book
I have about the folk scene, Richie Unterberger's "Turn! Turn! Turn"
