EAST HARLEM (WABC) -- They merged folk and protest music and in the process, in Greenwich Village in the early 1960's they changed the world.

Celebrating that important nexus of music and politics from half a century ago here in New York, the Folk City exhibit opened Tuesday night at the Museum of the City of New York in East Harlem.

Tom Paxton, Paul Stookey, John Hammond, so many greats were there to celebrate this extraordinary exhibit.

Bill Ritter posted them singing "This Land is Your Land" on his Facebook page, if you want to see and hear the spirit of this exhibit.
