1965 Newport Folk Festival

"Spider John" Koerner, Dave "Snaker" Ray, and Tony "Little Sun" Glover, came from Minneapolis and made two successful albums for Elektra Records in the mid-60s--"Blues, Rags and Hollers" and "Lots More Blues Rags and Hollers" (both reissued on CD)-- but they had distinctive individual styles and also performed alone, so they just called their threesome Koerner, Ray and Glover.
