Greetings Fan Club Members and Friends, and happy spring! The weather’s warming up, Bob’s heading for another joint, and we’ve
got live music on our minds! We also happen to have a new DVD full of
performances and more – Legends of Folk: The Village Scene – to offer
up for one lucky winner. Hosted by Noel Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul & Mary, LEGENDS OF FOLK: THE
VILLAGE SCENE celebrates the folk era in Greenwich Village in the
1960s. The epicenter of the folk, folk rock and singer songwriter
movements, the Village, with its cafes and coffee houses, shaped one of
the most important periods in American music. This documentary contains a wealth of archival footage including quite
a few full songs. Highlights are many, but some of our personal
favorites are the clips of Mississippi John Hurt, Richie Havens, The
New Lost City Ramblers, and a really young and adorable (well,
everyone’s pretty young and adorable in this!) Maria Muldaur, grooving
with Jim Kweskin Jug Band. Maria also provides lots of personal
insights and stories through in-depth interviews, as do John Cohen,
Peter Yarrow, an especially entertaining and endearing John Sebastian,
and others. There is also a performance by our very own Bob to round
things out. References to Bob by the various musicians interviewed
throughout are plentiful, most often in the context of him as the guy
who changed it all, who went from soaking up all these influences to
writing mind-blowing original songs and taking it all in a direction
that no one had taken it before. So, here we go, contest time! To enter and have a chance to win this
DVD, answer the following question: If you had the opportunity to
request one song from the Greenwich Village days that Bob would perform
live at a show you were attending, what song would that be? Feel free to elaborate and tell us why you’d pick that song, and send
in your answer by the end of the day Monday, April 30 to qualify.
We’ll pick a winner on May 1st. Thanks for playing and good luck!
