Now inactive, the website about Mel, Mel & Julian, the 60s era folk-comedy group that Mel Green co-founded in 1963 while at art school in South Africa with Mel Miller.
You can still find a first-hand detailed history about the band, old photographs, etc. right here on this site!
And if you happen to have old photos and anecdotes from performances you may have attended, please do get in touch and share them... (in this way a bootleg performance from the old Edward days was shared, and was being analyzed for possible release ... songs, jokes, audience participation and all!)
- A Photo Album: The Folk Community in South Africa, 60s and Onward
This is a photo chronicle of the South African 60s era folk music community. Most of the photos shown were taken at the Troubadour, Johannesburg's premier folk club. The main suspects shown all played there at one time or another. I left South Africa in early May of 1970, and so the album reflects the folk scene from my view-point up until that time.
I would appreciate any information regarding the photographers, if they are not credited. Also welcome, would be additional hi-resolution photos of anyone shown... some are tiny photos and would benefit by being replaced by larger versions. Please get in touch via my Guestbook link. Anecdotes would also be very welcome!
- The Maple Street Project
Mel Green played with The Maple Street Project, a band which has been playing and writing songs together for over 25 years. They disbanded a long time ago. The band's nucleus was and still is an on-going songwriting collaborative... currently on an extended sabbatical. Their website... www.maplestreetproject.com is offline, although the remaining 3 members, Bob Littman, George Pultz and Eric Luskin, formed an off-shot trio names "Side Street", which plays actively around Greater Boston.
