Thread Name: NYC 'local' famous folksingers
Subject: Folklore: NYC 'local' famous folksingers
I was recently asked if I know the names of some renowned folk musicans still living in the NYC area- and surprised my self by not being able to name many (I use the term 'folk' in the broadest sense, meaning singer-songwriters in particular, and including so called Americana and country and acoustic blues players besides traditional musicians).

All I could come up with was Steve Earle. Danny Kalb certainly qualifies in my book. And not sure if John Sebastian is still here. Surely there must be many many more even if Dylan is no longer strolling positively down 4th street.

Got any names?
