This Date In Rock History: 11 April

On this date in 1961, the Patron Saint of TNOP made his New York City debut at Gerde's Folk City in Greenwich Village. In six months, Bob Dylan would come to the attention of the general public when Robert Shelton would review a show of Dylan's at the same venue for the New York Times. The former Robert Zimmerman would perform tunes written by Woody Guthrie, Blind Lemon Jefferson and Leadbelly, then later start to work in some of his own efforts, including "Song For Woody" and "Talkin' New York."
