The Limeliters

The Limeliters are an American folk music group, formed in July 1959 by Lou Gottlieb (bass violin/bass), Alex Hassilev (banjo/baritone), and Glenn Yarbrough (guitar/tenor). The group was active from 1959 until 1965, when they disbanded. After a hiatus of sixteen years Yarbrough, Hassilev, and Gottlieb reunited and began performing as The Limeliters again, in reunion tours with all three members, and on a regular basis without Yarbrough. The Limeliters are still active and performing, but Gottlieb died in 1996 and Hassilev, the last founding member active in the group, has retired, leaving the group to carry on without any of the original members.
