Thread Name: Dave Van Ronk seriously ill
Subject: RE: Dave Van Ronk seriously ill
These last years, I've been listening to Dave most of the time, and now my repertoire is like a tribute to this great guy. He is an encyclopedia of folk music, and most of folk songs I know were those he sung. I've always had the vague project to go to the USA, not for the MOMA or the Smithsonian or anything, but to find him in a little club, hear his powerful voice, his fingerpicking, and see what the hell are the chords for Jivin' man! I really hope he'll get well, and of course, my thoughts are with him.

I wrote to Folklore productions to confirm the news and know what is happening. I linked the thread in the mail.
