Walk on the Wild Side: The Folk Scene, Before and After Bob Dylan
September 18 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT$25 – $30
Music historian Jesse Rifkin leads us back, “down the foggy ruins of time”, on a tour of places associated with the folk revival. The tour examines the fabled Greenwich Village folk music scene of the early 1960s while largely ignoring its most famous participant, Bob Dylan. Instead, we'll discuss both the flourishing scene that predated his arrival, and the transformations that emerged in his wake. See venues, homes, and album cover locations associated with artists such as Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Dave Van Ronk, Peter Paul & Mary, Phil Ochs, Alan Lomax, Jean Ritchie, Judy Collins, Alix Dobkin, Fred Neil, the Even Dozen Jug Band, and Buffy Sainte-Marie.
Meet outside the Abingdon Square Veterinary Clinic (130 West 10th Street)
