Various Artists

Izzy Young – Talking Folklore Center DVD

Review by Gary Hill

This is listed as Various Artists at Music Street Journal because it features a lot of different musicians. Izzy Young was the founder of The Folklore Center. It was a New York City bookstore and performance venue. It was also a hang out for musicians, poets and more. The Folklore Center opened in 1974 and closed in 1974. Well, one might say that it relocated as Young moved the place from NYC to Sweden. This documentary was actually filmed in Sweden in 1989. It’s just a little under an hour long. It has a lot of great footage. It’s highly recommended to anyone interested in the scene or just those curious about it. It’s quite well done, really.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2015  Volume 5 at
