Thread Name: Chord Req: Gaslight Rag (Dave Van Ronk)
Subject: RE: Chord Req: Gas Light Rag by Dave Van Ronk
The Gaslight was dug out of a basement by John Mitchell in the '50's.
It was downstairs, right next to the Kettle of Fish Bar which was the hangout for the performers at the Gaslight.
Patrick Sky was a good friend of Dave's and on of the stellar lights of the '60's Village folk scene. He also lived in the same apartment building as DVR, on Waverly Place. A great musician and songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.
