In trying to remember names of the kids in the Fairwood School pictures, I thought of Bill Zorn. I remembered that he moved to Arizona, but that was about it.
I “googled” him and discovered a Bill Zorn who had spent part of his career in the New Christy Minstrels, the Limelighters, and is now with the Kingston Trio.
His bio gave me some clues: "I was born in Bridgeport, CT - the third of four sons - to Lillian and Edward in May 1948. My father was a sales representative and his work took us from Connecticut to rural Pennsylvania, to Ohio and finally to Phoenix, Arizona in 1961."
Clues: 1948? moved from Ohio to Arizona in 1961?
I found an address for a Bill Zorn in Arizona, wrote him a note to see if it was the Bill Zorn from Fairwood School and it was! He has had quite a career and is now one of the Kingston Trio!
The Kingston Trio performed in Youngstown, Ohio on October 14, 2007. It was part of their 30+ weeks a year performing on the road and what a GREAT show it was. If they are performing near you.................don't miss it!
Here is Bill Zorn (who was with us at Fairwood School) and I in the dressing room before the show.
