Mark Ross Joe Heaney - any personal memories? (23) RE: Joe Heaney - any personal memories? 19 Feb 16


The NY Folklore Center produced a concert with Joe some 40 years ago. I was assigned by the boss Rick Altman (Izzy Young having left for Sweden a year or so before), to take Joe out for a beer at the break. We ended up down the street at a place called (of all things) The English Pub. With us was Barbara Dane and Irwin Silber, and a woman (whose name I can't recall), avery butch lesbian, who worked at The National Guardian, a very Red newspaper that Irwin edited. Somehow in the course of the conversation the topic of feminism arose, at which point Joe Heaney raised his pint and announced that he didn't like feminists because women had enough nerve as it was. Forrunately, it was time to head back up to the store for the 2nd half of the show.
