Writer and musician Elijah Wald, co-author of Dave Van Ronk: The Mayor of MacDougal Street, a memoir which serves as the source material for the upcoming Coen Brothers film, “Inside Llewyn Davis,” presents a history of Greenwich Village in the 1950s and 1960s. This program will include a performance by Wald and rare audio recordings from the NY Folk Singers Guild archive.
