For five years, investigators had pursued every lead in an effort to stop the serial killer who terrorized Northern England, but the end came out of pure The very fact that they'd sneaked into their success so suddenly, virtually "under the radar" of the political right, was an offense.
And the fact that no member of the group had ever uttered a word in public or, for all anyone knew, in private about the Korean War was, curiously, irrelevant amid all of the controversy. By the end of , the group had called it quits. Decca no longer wanted to record them because it was difficult, if not impossible, to get their records into the stores, and it was no longer possible to get their music played on the radio. The label kept paying them for the duration of their contract until it ended in , and by then each of the members had moved on to other activities.
Another key factor, even if the political and business climate had been more favorable, was Pete Seeger, who was never wholly comfortable working in a group context due to the limitations it placed on his repertory, and who liked even less the compromises that the Weavers had made in pursuing their work. The group was seemingly forgotten by the public over the next three years, their music banished from the airwaves and their records withdrawn -- Ronnie Gilbert and her husband moved to California, Fred Hellerman became a music teacher, Seeger performed as a solo act at whatever schools would book him, and Lee Hays wrote radio commercials.
In , however, Harold Leventhal proposed a reunion concert for the four. They tried to book Town Hall in New York but weren't allowed to rent it, so controversial were they still. Instead, in a move that anticipated Brian Epstein's boldness in booking the hall for the Beatles nine years later, Leventhal rented Carnegie Hall -- the irony was that Carnegie Hall's management, involved in the relatively rarefied world of classical music, was totally unaware of any controversy surrounding the Weavers and had no objections.
The Weavers reunion event proved to be a sellout and then some, with hundreds turned away; equally important, it was captured on tape, and the tape was then sold to Vanguard Records. Vanguard at that time was a small but enterprising label specializing in classical music, run by two brothers, Maynard Solomon and Seymour Solomon, a pair of music lovers and scholars. They had no shareholders to answer to and no corporate structure, and even in the world of classical record distribution were fiercely independent.
Vanguard released the reunion concert and did very well with it, they followed it up with a second volume, and suddenly Vanguard and the Weavers had a new recording contract. It was through the Vanguard releases, the reunion concerts, and the recordings that followed, that most of the Weavers' baby-boom audience, and virtually any enthusiasts acquired during the folk revival of the late '50s and early '60s, and at any time after, discovered the group and its music.

Their Vanguard recordings were stripped down, very basic productions, just the group members playing with no dubbed-on accompaniment; these recordings are usually regarded more highly than the Decca material which, in any case, wasn't available for many years in any comprehensive form. Seeger left the re-formed group in , preferring to pursue a solo career on his own. By that time, ironically enough, the stage had been set for just such an opportunity by the Weavers themselves.
They may not have survived the blacklist intact, but the interest in folk songs that they'd fostered, along with the proof, in the form of millions of copies of "Goodnight Irene" and "Kisses Sweeter Than Wine" that had been sold, wasn't lost on the public or the music business -- by , groups like the Easy Riders led by Terry Gilkyson and featuring a pair of lesser-known People's Songs alumni, Frank Miller and Richard Dehr , had charted a few huge national hits in a distinctly folk-like idiom with "Marianne"; big record labels were looking at folk music, and smaller ones were recording it, and when the Kingston Trio broke out with the two-million-selling "Tom Dooley" in , the dam burst.
Collegiate folk groups were in, and even controversial "old" Pete Seeger was able to get a contract with Columbia Records. By the end of the '50s, the anti-Communists were also in retreat, having been discredited by their woefully flawed national icon, Senator Joseph McCarthy, and his fall from power -- nobody especially wanted to take them on if they could help it, but they weren't winning any new battles or new friends, either.
Even the Tokens' hit single, another version of the Weavers' hit "Wimoweh," entitled "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," only helped sustain the Weavers' reputation. Seeger's first replacement in the Weavers was Erik Darling, a former member of the Tarriers who lasted with the group until when he left to pursue a solo career and, eventually, to form the Rooftop Singers; he was succeeded by Frank Hamilton, who stayed until and was succeeded by an acquaintance of Lee Hays', Bernie Krause, who worked with the group during their final year together, including the Carnegie Hall concert which featured a composite of all the group members working together.

In November of , a pair of reunion concerts at Carnegie Hall became the final appearance of the original quartet and the focal point of the film Wasn't That a Time, a documentary that chronicled the Weavers' history. Hays passed away the following summer, on August 26, , at the age of 67, thus ending the active history of the original group, but the other members of the original Weavers remained active into the new millennium.
Pete Seeger died in Manhattan on January 27, at the age of 94; Ronnie Gilbert died in Mill Valley, California on June 6, at the age of 88; and Fred Hellerman, the last living original group member, died in Weston, Connecticut on September 1, at the age of Two box-set collections of the group's work -- Wasn't That a Time on Vanguard, covering their history from through , and Goodnight Irene: The Weavers on Bear Family, devoted exclusively to their first four years together -- have appeared in the digital era, along with Kisses Sweeter Than Wine, a double-disc set of previously unreleased live performances from the years on Omega Records, the successor label to the Solomon brothers' Vanguard Records.
Additionally, most of their Vanguard albums have reappeared in digital formats, and a pair of compilations of their Decca work have been issued in England and America. Listening to their material today, the great irony is the sense of timelessness in the performances. The avoidance of controversy, which made the group such pariahs to their compatriots on the left and utterly infuriating to their opponents on the right, gave the Weavers' music a universality that topical songs of the era would have sorely lacked ten or 20 years later.
At the same time, the group's unaffected style, partly a result of their sheer inexperience, gave the recordings an honesty and directness that was lacking in the more scholarly approach to folk music that was more typical of the era.
