The Limeliters - Thu. Jan. 4, 2001
The Limeliters It all began in 1959. It was springtime in Los Angeles and "Cosmo Alley" was the nightclub to frequent. Lou Gottlieb, who was working as an arranger for The Kingston Trio, just happened to be in the audience when Alwx Hassilev and Glenn Yarbrough appeared on stage to sing a duet together. It was a chance meeting...and a legendary one. Since that meeting, The Limeliters have gone through many incarnations, with the current line-up consisting of Alex Hassilev, Rick Dougherty, and Bill Zorn. As The Limeliters sail through the nineties, their unique blend of thrilling harmony, whacked out humor, and contemporary satire consistently draws standing ovations from audiences that, today, span three generations. With their energy and enthusiasm undiminished, The Limeliters remain on of the most exciting folk acts that the genre has produced.
