The Tarriers were a vocal group specializing in folk music and folk-flavored popular music. Founded in 1956 by Erik Darling, Alan Arkin, and Bob Carey, they had two hit songs during 1956-57: "Cindy, Oh Cindy" (with Vince Martin) and "The Banana Boat Song."which is sometimes credited as written by them and covered by Harry Belafonte as "Day-O".

Shortly after appearing in a low-budget musical titled Calypso Heat Wave (1957, in which they lip-synched to "The Banana Boat Song"), Arkin left the group to pursue acting and was replaced by Clarence Cooper. In 1959, Darling departed to join The Weavers; he was replaced by banjoist/singer Eric Weissberg (later of "Dueling Banjos" fame). In 1962, Weissberg's college chum Marshall Brickman joined, making the group a quartet until Carey departed in late 1963 to pursue a solo career. With the decline in popularity of folk music in the wake of the British Invasion, The Tarriers disbanded in 1965.

Steve,

don't know if you're still around. I see from a April 2008 set list that you seem to be a fan of Dan Del Santo, and have reached a ways further back into his discography than most on the web. I thought you'd be interested to know about his first and second bands. A long-time resident of Poughkeepsie, New York (not sure if he was born there), he started performing in the early seventies, and hooked up with my brother, Evan. They first performed all-acoustic, with Dan flat-picking and Evan finger-picking guitars. Evan sometimes played piano or accordion, and when they added more musicians in a new band, later switched to his main instrument, fiddle. Fred Robinson, an old fan has put together some photos and tracks from this new band, the Arm Brothers. You can find them at:

frobbi.org/armbros/index.html

Only the Phoenicia sets and the studio tracks date from before Dan left for Texas...

Dan's music was unique from the start. Having grown up with them (and being a bluegrass fan), I still find the Arm Brothers the most compelling of Dan's work. Also, he had some strong musical personalities counterbalancing and adding to his own genius -- which could be an acquired taste!

Thanks for your kind comments about Dan -- whatever his faults, he had a huge heart, and a huge talent.
  Wed. 3/10/10 7:51am Niles Fuller:

Hi. I photographed Dan in my studio in the mid-eighties. It'd be a nice addition to this website. If you'd like it just email me. Dan was a wonderful musician and KUT DJ. Thx.
