Thread Name: Dave Van Ronk's last concert
Subject: RE: Dave Van Ronk's last concert
I remember seeing him at the Main Point in Bryn Mawr, Pa., around 1970 or '71. One of many unforgettable moments at that magical place. I remember him talking about how he learned "Candy Man" from Rev. Gary Davis, and asking him what some of the lyrics meant. Rev. Davis replied, "You'll understand when you're older!"
