John gets a mention in this article from the December issue of Acoustic Guitar Magazine. It's on page 3, in the discussion of New York. Enjoy!

Well, it now appears you have to be a subscriber to access this article. It was available to all just a day or two ago. Sorry about that, but hopefully some of you got a chance to read it. Not much about John in the article, really, only that he gets mentioned in the discussion of NYC.

Well, I found the part of the article that mentions John posted elsewhere so here you go:

PLAYERS AND HISTORY

New York City was home to two big waves in folk music—
the Bleecker Street scene of the 1960s (Bob Dylan,
Dave Van Ronk, Phil Ochs, Tim Hardin, and many others)
and the Fast Folk scene of the '80s (Shawn Colvin,
Steve Forbert, John Gorka, Christine Lavin, Richard Shindell,
and Suzanne Vega). Few of these artists live in the Big Apple
today—and some, sadly, have passed away—but there's no
denying that these artists set the stage for today's up-and-comers.
Founder of theFast Folkcooperative magazine and record label,
Jack Hardy still lives in Manhattan and hosts a weekly
song-swap gathering on Mondays. Brooklyn-born Richie
Havens performs in the New York area at least once a year;
and bluegrass mandolin player Chris Thile and Steve Earle
now call New York City home.
