John Cohen This man has done it all, photographer, musician, film maker, teacher, historian. He started in the late 50s on the Lower East Side with the abstract expressionist and beatniks. By the 60s he was in the thick of the Folk Music Boom in Greenwich Village where he helped form the New Lost City Ramblers on of the best bands performing "Old Time Music" now referred to as "Americana". He tells us of photographing and filming then newcomer to the Village, Bob Dylan. Also stories of explorations to the South to locate, photograph, film and record original country musicians. A rich and varied life, tales well told by a remarkable gentleman.
