Do you live in the Village? I assume so. And do you know the Paul family at the Washington Square Hotel? I always stay there and we've become good friends. Have discussed all this sort of stuff with them. The Hotel is part of the history.

I've met him and we're in touch. Saw Judy's interview the other day - she sent me a very nice tribute for Bob's memorial. Did you know Bob Shelton? I met him in Manchester in 1979 and we remained friends until his death. I'm sort of an unofficial executor, working with his family. Was born in London in 1957 but was fascinated by all this music even in my teens and have since interviewed Baez, Collins, Janis Ian, Pete Yarrow and many others. In fact, as Marci might have mentioned, for the last few months I've been trying to interest people in an idea - "Bringing It All Back Home to Washington Square", a folk festival in the park, in September 2011, marking the fiftieth anniversary of WSP own free speech movement and also the fiftieth anniversary of Bob's celebrated NYT Dylan review and 1961 as a high point, or the launch pad, of the wider folk revival. Everyone I've spoken to thinks it's a great idea - but I'm 3000 miles away and not an impresario. Have poss interest from a TV producer...

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.

Yes I got your friend request. I accepted it a little bit ago. And I am afraid I have to agree with you about Ning. It is a shame they are making such a mess out of this change. It seems to me that they rushed into this for some reason. Probably financial - whatever it was it seems poorly planned and executed. And Ning was such a nice too.

In time they should get everything working and things should go back to normal - assuming this doesn't destroy them first. I have heard they were actually reducing staff - not a good sign when they are having so many problems.

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
