Washington Squares: 2017

In the late 1980s the folk music revival was booming in Greenwich Village. One of the more renowned alt-folk groups was the Washington Squares whose repertoire drew on classic folk songs. Their look was neo-beatnik, but their attitude was more cutting edge. Although founding member Bruce Paskow died in the early '90s and they disbanded, the surviving Squares have reunited for 2018.
