In 1950, Mrs. [Franklin D.] Roosevelt took Josh on a concert tour of Europe. In England, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Scotland, he sang to sell-out crowds. Fifty thousand people showed up for one concert in Stockholm and at an Ambassador's party on Copenhagen; even the King of Denmark sat on the floor and joined in singing spirituals. In England, Princess Margaret asked Josh to sing Don't Smoke In Bed - Peter Rachtman, July, 1961 issue of 33 Guide, on Josh White's earlier visits to Europe

Thanks for this Stuart. i spent a good bit of time at Lena's, playing and hanging out as I know Mike Taub also did.
It does hold a special place in the hearts of people who hung there. It was like the Gaslight & the Kettle of Fish ( in the back room of the sports bar downstairs ) removed to a sweet upstate town with a girl's college. The" scene" plus a country respite. And Lena's performance room was much nicer than the Gaslight's or Gerdes.
Its great that people have been able to keep it up and running since her death.

My loathings are simple: stupidity, oppression, crime, cruelty, soft music.
