Today in History: Bob Dylan Debuts at Folk City

In April 1961, Bob Dylan played his first paying performance at Folk City (photo), an early folk music venue in Greenwich Village, New York, and a launching pad for folk legends such as Judy Collins, Joan Baez, Phil Ochs, and others. Since that opening debut, Dylan’s lyrical genius has ingrained itself into the fabric of rock and folk music history.

In honor of his debut, check out these three original documentaries featuring the legends and myths surrounding the early life, career, world tours, and never before released home movie footage of Bob Dylan himself.
