SPEND SOME TIME WITH IZZY YOUNG




If you’ve never spent 18 minutes and 7 seconds with Izzy Young, here’s your chance.
The Folklore Center founder and Folk Music impresario was flown to New York in June of 2015 to enjoy the praise and accolades heaped upon him by the Museum of the City of New York. He was a vital part of the Greenwich Village ‘scene’ and his work was rightly recognized throughout the FOLK CITY exhibit.

While in New York, former Phil Ochs roommate Dave Peller and I took Izzy around town and spent two days at the great Clearwater Festival. Here’s some of what transpired in the wee hours.
