Thread Name: Dave Van Ronk & Penny Lang's son ?
Subject: RE: Dave Van Ronk & Penny Lang's son ?
In the interview, Jason said he never met his father, referring to Dave Van Ronk.

It occurs to me that Dave played in Montreal quite regularly from the 1960s on. There's a live album of him at Sir George Williams University (now Concordia) from the 60s and I remember him at the Back Door around the time that Jason would have been an infant. Then he played regularly at Mike Regenstreif's Golem Coffee House in the 70s and 80s. He was also at the Montreal Jazz Festival sometime in the 90s.

So there would have been lots of opportinities for Jason to meet Dave from the time he was a child to the time he was an adult.
