Since 1999, Folk
Music Archives has interviewed many folk artists who
personally knew Bob Dylan, both from Duluth, MN (Robert Allen Zimmerman) - - his
days with Woody - - his "Village" days - - and ever changing works
through 2001. Folk Music Archives has traveled thousands of miles to record
these rare personal stories and recollections.
conversations about Bob separate fact from fiction. As George Harrison said,
" . . . 500 years from now, Dylan will be the most remembered and revered
name from this era, eclipsed even the Beatles."

Liam Clancy was
interviewed by Folk Music Archives in New York City on Friday, April 19,
2001 - - his recollections and lasting association with Bob portrays a personal
and very emotional side never told before . . . it is priceless.
Pete Seeger and
Peter Yarrow tell what really happened at the Newport Folk Festival when Bob
"plugged in" - and what happened after the performance.
Klein was interviewed at The New Yorker on February 8, 2000 - - Joe wrote
"Primary Colors" and one of the best books on Woody Guthrie,
"Woody Guthrie: A Life." When asked about the archiving and
recording the folk singers and groups of the 20th century he said:
that for the sake of history . . . when people go back and look at how this
distinctive American form of music evolved . . . these people hold a very key
part of the answer . . . we should get them on record - - pepper them with
questions until we are obnoxious - - until we get the whole story
