    Saw the terrific Town Hall Concert the other night. Did a brief posting for Phil Ochs today, please stop by and visit some time. Looking forward to seeing Inside llewyn Davis. Went to many concerts in the village!!!!

    • Thanks for the comment. I missed the village scene but am making up for it. Was going to post a Phil Ochs link:)
      I went to the Town Hall concert in Sept. Saw the movie last Sun. Read The Mayor of MacDougal Street a few years ago.

        Yes, I also read the book when it first came out. I also saw Van Ronk oh so many years ago!!!! I couldn’t get tix for the Town Hall concert but feel so lucky to have seen it on Showtime. I love the younger generation bands I saw: Lake St. Dive, The Punch Brothers, and ALL of them, to tell you the truth!!!!!
