A fixture on the Greenwich Village folk scene for 40 years during the mid-twentieth century, the late-Dave Van Ronk remains one of the most celebrated folk artists of all time. Recently, Smithsonian Folkways released Down in Washington Square: the Smithsonian Folkways Collection.

A jam-packed, 36 track, two CD set, the collection serves to reaffirm Van Ronk’s influence and importance and introduce his music to a new generation of folk enthusiasts.

Here he is performing, talking about lucid dreaming, meeting Mississippi John Hurt and how they managed to get Hurt’s song “Frankie” onto a 78.
