Mr Rick’s Café Americana

Solo, Duo

Songs from the American Roots Song book

Its 1966.

The show at the Chessmate Coffee House in Detroit is about to start.
Of the 60 or so seats, only one at the foot of stage left is somehow empty.

I take the seat.

On stage is a big Guild guitar leaning against an empty wooden chair. Down on the floor I see a sheet of paper with song titles scrawled upon it.

Its Dave Van Ronks set list.
