"The Club 47 once was a coffee house in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

You could also hear new voices at the Club 47 ... the young Joan Baez trying out a Child ballad for the first time, or that new kid, Bob Dylan, up from New York, testing the crowd's reaction to some new lyrics set to an old melody. Judy Collins, Richie Havens, Van Morrison, Eric Anderson, Tom Paxton, John Hammond, Tom Rush and a host of others came to that tiny room, and learned...." (Tom Rush).
