As part of its ongoing New York Living Legacy Project, The Egg will explore New York’s folk music legacy – from the storied underground folk music renaissance in Greenwich Village to the national folk boom to the creation of upstate retreats.

The project will feature a special exhibit of photographs by George Pickow, instruments and other memorabilia donated by the estate of folk music legend Jean Ritchie.

In conjunction with the Folk Legacy Exhibit, The Egg’s Swyer Theatre and lobby will host an opening reception at 2pm on Sunday, March 6, immediately followed by a concert featuring guitarist Peter Pickow (son of Jean Ritchie and George Pickow) and mountain dulcimer players David Massengill and Susan Trump.
