Folk City celebration

Image 1

Amazing show last night in NYC celebrating Folk City, where I spent several years as a waitress and bartender and where I met my husband (later documented in “Ten Year Night”). Many legends and spectacular performances, including the great Pete Seeger singing and playing banjo with everyone on the finales; the hilarious and wonderful John Wesley Harding as M.C.; Langhorne Slim doing a great song about his grandfather; Happy Traum tearing it up on the guitar; David Amram accompanying almost everyone (including me) on piano and flute; Oscar Brand as funny and caustic as ever; and lots more. Here we are before the show: to name a few, John Platt, Happy Traum, John Wesley Harding, me, A.C. Newman, Josh White Jr, Langhorne Slim, David Amram, and in front: Oscar Brand and Izzy Young.
