Fred Hellerman (1927–2016)

Fred Hellerman, the last of the Weavers, has died at the age of eighty-nine. The New York Times has an obituary.

I have long liked “Tomorrow Lies in the Cradle,” a sweet, tear-smeary song by Fred Hellerman and Fran Minkoff. Here is Hellerman performing the song at the Weavers 1980 Carnegie Hall reunion.
