The Garden of Joy Blues

The Garden of Joy Blues was an anarchist commune located in the Ozarks, about ten miles south of Birch Tree, Missouri. It was founded in 1972 and survived until 1978 or so. Its name came from the title of an old jug band song, and was chosen because two of the founders were devoted fans of rural acoustic blues. As time allows, more pages and pictures will be added to this site, but for now, here are the "where are they now" pages for three of the communards, The Singing Yronwode Family.
