  • Joan Baez, Patti Smith, Carey Mulligan, Oscar Isaac Celebrate the Music of 'Inside Llewyn Davis'

    "The Great Folk Scare" is how the late singer-songwriter Dave Van Ronk jokingly referred to the 1960s American folk music revival. But there was nothing to fear Sept. 29 at Manhattan's Town Hall, where a who's-who of folkies past and present gathered to...
