When I was the feature editor of the Daily Trojan (USC) in the 60s, I frequented the Garret and was a big fan of Terrea. We went there often. Nostalgia!!

I was listening to old folk music on public television and for some reason I typed Terrea's name in Google and came to this site.1964-65: I was still in high school and we were in Girl Scouts, crazy with love, hormones and obsessed with folk music. the Girl Scout Council explicitly barred us from going to the Garrett but that didnt stop us. we would tell our parents we were going to the movies on a Friday night hop in the car in the San Fernando Valley and get over to the Garrett soon as we could I still remember mint hot chocolate with whipped cream, the crowds jammed in around tiny tables and Terrea's singing. She lifted and broke our young hearts. It was a place of safety where we could figure out who we were, amidst the excitement of just being there.
I know that Garrett was many things to many people but for us it was a place where we could go and be ourselves and be among people like ourselves both folk musicians and people who were trying to understand their own identity. After high school we went our separate ways but Terrea, BJ and this wonderful space were.really important to us at a pivotal time. anyway this was really fun to look through and maybe my little anecdote will add something more to the story.

Jerry,

This news saddens me. I would have gone to the memorial had I know.

I would like to get my hands on any DVD or download of Terrea singing "Oh The Apple Tree."

Wes.

Hi Jerry,

This news saddens me. Such memories. I wish I could have gone to the memorial service but I didn't know.

I would like to get my hands on a dvd of her singing "But Oh The Apple Tree."

I would appreciate any help you can be. I am on my own too now - My wife of 30 years divorced me and I am back in Santa Monica, CA.

I've told this story before but here is the short version. Terrea & B.J. took me in & gave me a key, blanket & pillow and told me to stay as long as I needed. The last few years I'd been calling Terrea about once a month, I miss those calls & her but as long as we play her music she is still with us. In Jesus language the word for Death is "Muta" & means, not here present elsewhere.

I had been phoning Terrea about once a month just to keep in touch and the last time I called she couldn't talk she said she had had a fall and was trying to sleep. I wish I had phoned her on Sunday. I was going to but got busy with other stuff...much less important stuff and I neglected to call her. At least she went peacefully in her sleep. In the Aramaic Language (the language of Jesus) the word for death is muta (Pronounced Mota) and it means, Not here present elsewhere. I know she is sing with the angles and has reunited with B.J. and Sue and her own Mother. I truely loved her. She and B.J. had taken such good care of me when I worked at the Garret.

I regret to report that, on Janury 5, 2013, Terrea Lea passed away quietly in her sleep.

That is all the information I have at this time.

Terrea, some friends and I were chatting online about our days breaking into the music biz, in Hollywood in the 60s, and of course your name came up. You were so good to so many of us. So I did some googling around and found this site.

Whoops. I just noticed the post about Terrea's "condition" from 5 years ago. I hope this love note isn't past due. Now I have to look around and see what's up. But this is a love note. The encouragement I got at the Garret in the mid 60s led me to a life in music that I love.
