"This photos shows Robert Shelton at work on the New York Times - I'd guess late 1950s. Anyone have anything of him around the Village?"

Hi Liz. Sorry it took a while to answer you. I'd love to find out more of that interview. I don't have many pictures of my grandfather at all. What I've been collecting has come in the last year since I've started to work on his bio and the story of Gerdes. Many nice ones have surfaced and more will appear as I chase them. I'll be checking back here more often. Good to hear from you

Happy Traum at the Gerdes Folk City 50th Reunion 6/7/10 "Buckets Of Rain" and talks about Dylan

"BRING BACK THEM GOOD OLD DAYS!" ~ Comments from our members!

Lisi Tribble about Gerdes Folk City:
"Jay Byrd was the last hooter- Dustin Hoffman based his character "Hawk" in Ishtar on him. Enamel the Camel. The Roches. Rick Danko. David Massengill. George Gerdes. Eric Andersen. Mark Johnson. Gregory Fleeman. Jack Hardy. Robin Williamson. Tret Fure. Ferron. Sammy Walker. Lach. . .--Anderson,

Bob Dylan was also below age when he first played there. Mike signed his guardianship forms."


"I loved it when the Village was still like a small community, a town within Manhattan, and mostly "regulars" would hang out.....I always felt so welcome there... Bring back them old days!"
~Ida Langsam

"This website is gonna catch on fire. Great idea! When I get to something other than an iPhone I'll upload some pix and stuff. I'll be keeping tabs...I Think this kind of organized exposure for the artists willing to perform is Great. going to blossom"
~Bob Porco (grandson of Mike)

"Thanks so much for putting this whole thing together, and for inviting me to participate. I have such wonderful memories of the Bitter End and all the other coffee houses: Gerde's Folk City, The Gaslight Cafe... saw so many wonderful artists perform."
~Yvonne Fitzner
