Vol 1 – Sing Folk Songs From The Circus Tent (Century FV33270) 1970?

 

This co-ed folk group began in the summer of 1968 as a ministry of The Circus Tent in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina – a parlor/hangout where youth could gather for spiritual discussion and entertainment while partaking of the universally accepted element of ice cream. Originally comprised of four guys and one girl, the New Hermeneutics have the look and feel of early New Folk – acoustic guitars, upright bass, and a large roster of titles, both spiritual (‘Samson’, ‘Jesus Met The Woman At The Well’, ‘Well Well Well’) and secular (‘They Call The Wind Maria’, ‘Follow The Drinkin’ Gourd’, ‘Blowing In The Wind’). Nothing big but the performances are competent, sticking to the basics with a live small-band local feel. The word hermeneutic they say means “meaning, or translation, or interpretation”. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
