Subject: RE: OBIT: RIP Dave Van Ronk
First saw him in 68, I was only 17. He was probably one of my earliest icons in folk. What an impression he marked me with. After 34 yrs I'm still singing some of his songs. To me "Another Time & Place" is a monument to a mighty big man. He leaves behind a great hole in the folk community. Barry
