Thread Name: Dave Van Ronk & Penny Lang's son ?
Subject: RE: Dave Van Ronk & Penny Lang's son ?
I remember Penny Lang had a song that she wrote for her son when he was a young child in the 1970's that referred his father as a "preacher man."

There was a musician named Ron Taddeo in Penny's band in the late-1960s, around the time she became pregnant, who was or soon became a minister. So I always assumed he was the father. That's why I was so surprised to hear Gerry say the father was Dave Van Ronk.
