Thread Name: Dave Van Ronk's last concert
Subject: RE: Dave Van Ronk's last concert
I remember seeing him at the Main Point in Bryn Mawr, Pa., around 1970 or '71. One of many unforgettable moments at that magical place. I remember him talking about how he learned "Candy Man" from Rev. Gary Davis, and asking him what some of the lyrics meant. Rev. Davis replied, "You'll understand when you're older!"

Aloha,
Mark
