MIKE PORCO's Legacy Lives

The Mike Porco Centennial Concert came and went. Last night, the Towne Crier in Beacon, NY hosted a celebration of the music and community cultivated at Gerde's Folk City and Greenwich Village during its Golden Era. Eleven of Mike's past hired hands performed once again in his honor. It truly is my honor, as his grandson, to be able to call them my friends, as well. Thanks to today's version of Mike Porco- Phil Ciganer- for keeping his club alive and thriving with the same spirit once felt in the Village. And THANKS to the musicians for sharing their time and unmatched skill with us.

PS- Several minutes of Positively Porco was well received but only because it's awesome.
