Moments In Time - Here In The Spotlight: His Bobness Dylan and His Peteness Hit Carnegie Hall (1962)

by David Gahr

His Bobness Dylan and His Peteness on stage at Carnegie Hall, September 22, 1962 in New York City. 

The occasion was 'A Hootenanny At Carnegie Hall', sponsored by Sing Out! Magazine, and featured Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, the bluegrass group The Lilly Brothers, and folk singer Peter La Farge, amongst others.

Dylan's three-song set included the first public performance of "A Hard Rains A-Gonna Fall", a complex and powerful refrain pattern of the traditional British ballad "Lord Randall" published by Francis Child.

Photographer David Gahr, described Pete Seeger as ... “Progenitor of generations of singers, mountains of songs and waves of impassioned poets and poetry.”

And Bob Dylan as ... “Numero Uno; He goes, others follow.” ....  Not sure is he was talking about loo breaks.
