The Mayor of Macdougal Street: A Memoir Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dave van ronk (1936-2002) was not only one of the founding figures of the 1960s folk music revival; he was a pioneer of modern acoustic blues, a fine songwriter and arranger, a powerful singer, and one of the most influential guitarists of his era. He was also a marvelous storyteller, a peerless musical historian, and one of the most quotable figures in The Village.

The Mayor of MacDougal Street is a unique firsthand account of the sixties folk scene that includes encounters with young stars-to-be like Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell and older luminaries like Woody Guthrie and Odetta. Colorful, hilarious, and engaging, The Mayor of MacDougal Street will appeal not only to folk and blues fans but also to anyone interested in the music, politics, and spirit of a revolutionary period in American culture.

Synopsis:

A colorful and engaging feast for anyone interested in the music, politics, and spirit of a revolutionary period in American culture, the early 1960s.

Synopsis:

The acclaimed inspiration for the new Coen Brothers film Inside Llewyn Davis, a classic memoir of Greenwich Village
