Dwayne Thorpe

Washington PA resident, (native of Kansas), teaches English at Washington and Jefferson College. He performs American traditional music of all kinds.

Dwayne's interest started at Carnegie Institute of Technology in the late fifties, and early sixties, when folk music was the biggest thing around. It would have ended with guitar playing if Dr.Glasser at Carnegie Tech had not had weekly gatherings of people interested in Folk Music.

"The ballroom was filled every Friday night with people listening, people singing and people playing."

"I had been exposed to folk music of course in Greenwich Village when I attended Columbia."
