Send private message to Raphael De Ronda

In 1962 I arrived in Rome and found the "Folk Studio" in Trastevere run by Harold Bradley. There were only two people there, Harold Bradley and Patrick Persiccetti. I was responsible for setting the Folk Studio onto it's course and fame all across Italy with my partner Maureen Kennedy-Martin.

I would like to hear from other members that I recruited and also those who are running it now.

BTW, Robert Zimmerman (Bob Dylan) did perform there while he was opening for Odetta. He came as the result of an invitation from me. Odetta graciously declined my invitation but Bob Dylan was gracious enough to accept.

Please contact me as to what happened to the other performers.

All the best,

Raphael De Ronda,
(As I was known in those wonderful Days.)
