Overview

Overview John Cohen & The Down Hill Strugglers w/ Walker & Jay

Friend to Bob Dylan and a critical figure in the 1960's folk revival, John Cohen joins this talented young band to perform old time music and some tunes of his own while excerpting his documentary films on Appalachian music and his vast photo archive of the same. Sublime neo-old time duo Walker & Jay open. Maryland State Arts Council's Cliff Murphy hosts a Q & A. 8pm. $20, $15 mbrs & stus.

Check out the first 'graph of his Wikipedia bio...
John Cohen (born August 2, 1932, Queens, New York) is a founding member of the New Lost City Ramblers as well as a musicologist, photographer and filmmaker of note. Some of his best known images document the Abstract Expressionist scene centered around New York's Cedar Bar; gallery happenings by early performance artists; young Bob Dylan's arrival in New York; Beat Generation writers during the filming of Robert Frank and Alfred Leslie's film Pull My Daisy; and the "old time" musicians of Appalachia. (The title of Cohen's 1962 film, High Lonesome Sound, has become synonymous with that music.) He has been one of the most important "discoverers" of traditional musicians and singers, finding and recording Dillard Chandler, Roscoe Holcomb, and many banjo players, most notably on the album High Atmosphere.
