Dave Van Ronk Hiawatha Music Festival Performance

Abstract/Description: Dave Van Ronk influenced generations of fingerstyle guitarists with definitive arrangements of ragtime instrumental standards, such as "Maple Leaf Rag” and "St. Louis Tickle," as well as folksongs like "Cocaine" and "Sampson and Delilah" (both of which he learned from his personal idol, the Reverend Gary Davis).
