Suffet Washington Square Memories (63* d) RE: Washington Square Memories 26 Sep 10


I had a wonderful time at the sixth annual Washington Square Park folk musicians reunion this afternoon (Sunday, Sept. 26, 2010). I especially enjoyed having the opportunity to jam with the legendary Roger Sprung, who has been making music in Washington Square Park since 1947, the year I was born. Roger's older brother George Sprung was also there. He is the person who obtained the Parks Department permit allowing music every Sunday afternoon from 2:00 to 6:00 PM after complaints from neighbors had shut down the music altogether.

Were any other Mudcatters at the reunion this year?

By the way, I first came to Washington Square Park as a listener in 1960, and I used to perform there pretty regularly from 1963 to 1968, and then off and on for another two or three years, by which time it was no longer the same.
