"Post is one of the Midwest's great treasures."
Post performed and recorded in the 1960s as the duet Friend and Lover with his wife
at that time, Cathy Conn Post. He worked as a solo singer-songwriter in Chicago and throughout
the Midwest in the 1970s and 1980s. Post was a regular performer at the Earl of Old Town and
other Chicago folk music bars, and was a contemporary of notable singer-songwriters Steve
Goodman, John Prine, Fred Holstein and Bonnie Koloc.
In 1971, he produced and played on an album of Chicago folk musicians, Gathering at the
Earl of Old Town, that included the first recording of Goodman's City of New Orleans. During the
1990s and 2000s, he focused on performing in the character of Mark Twain in one-man shows. Post has
also recorded an album of children's songs.
Larry Basil and John Heller: High energy harmonies! They cover traditional folk
songs, often recalling the times of Bob Gibson and Chicago's great venues.
