ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the club Gaslight at New York, where the folk music was played. It arrived as post-World War II, politics via musicians Pete Seeger, and Woody Guthrie who wrote the song "This Machine Kills Fascists," on his guitar. Then came a thousand funkless strummers in work shirts and pleated skirts. Except there was guitarist Bob Dylan, too big for little wooden guitars and black-lung sloganeering by college students, verging toward what would become that thin wild mercury sound. In the spring of 1961, he played poker in the back room of the Gaslight with musicians Dave Van Ronk, Tom Paxton, Happy Traum and the rest of the urban rustics.
