Sunday Sounds – Dave Van Ronk

Dave Van Ronk was mentioned in passing as part of Monday’s posting therefore I thought it appropriate to end the week with something from him.

“He Was A Friend Of Mine” – Dave Van Ronk

Dave Van Ronk (June 30, 1936 – February 10, 2002) was a folk singer born in Brooklyn, New York, who settled in Greenwich Village, New York City, and was nicknamed the “Mayor of MacDougal Street.”

He was best known as an important figure in New York City during the acoustic folk revival of the 1960s, but his work ranged from old English ballads to Bertolt Brecht, rock, New Orleans jazz, and swing. He is often associated with blues but he pointed out at concerts that he actually had only a limited number in his repertoire. He became known for performing instrumental ragtime guitar music, and he was an early friend and supporter of Bob Dylan, Tom Paxton, Patrick Sky, Phil Ochs, and Joni Mitchell, among many others.
