In 1961, the folk and blues producer Sam Charters and his wife, the future Beat biographer Ann Charters, had just returned from Europe to New York, where they occasionally visited Van Ronk, Sam Charters' former roommate on MacDougal Street.

On a single night in New York in 1961, it's possible to imagine Bob Dylan, Barbra Streisand and Miles Davis playing clubs in and around the Village, while Gloria Steinem and Robert Benton traded newspapers at Jim Downey's Steak House uptown. James Earl Jones was starring in Jean Genet's "The Blacks" at the St. Mark's Playhouse, while Edward Albee, having already galvanized off Broadway with "The American Dream" and "Zoo Story," was writing "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"

New York gave birth to a cultural revolution
The universe inhabited by Llewyn Davis who is loosely based on the musician Dave Van Ronk is a hermetic one, composed mostly of traditional music purists like himself, occasionally branching out to the cultural cognoscenti of the Upper West Side. But although the early 1960s folk scene in New York was just that insular, the city around it was in the midst of larger cultural ferment, its myriad subcultures in jazz, art, dance, film, theater and journalism undergoing their own seismic shifts.
During an era that ran roughly from 1960 through 1963, those worlds were known to overlap in fascinating, felicitous ways. It wasn't uncommon for Steinem then an emerging journalist working at the humor magazine Help! to call up an emerging comedian named Woody Allen, inviting him to contribute to the satirical fumetti the magazine specialized in. Robert Redford, having recently left art school and beginning to work as an actor, saw a young Streisand while she was playing Village clubs like the Blue Angel and the Bon Soir, never dreaming they would be acting together on screen a little more than 10 years later.
In the Coen brothers' movie "Inside Llewyn Davis," Oscar Isaac plays a folk singer barely making a living in Greenwich Village in the early '60s, sleeping on the couches of downtown friends, presumably unaware of a singer from Hibbing, Minn., who has just hit town and will change the world but not quite yet.

Meanwhile, Jean Luc Godard's "Breathless," Michelangelo Antonioni's "L'Avventura" and Ingmar Bergman's "The Virgin Spring" were introducing a new cinematic grammar to American filmgoers. Journalists absorbed the spontaneous rhythms of those films while documentary filmmakers internalized the raw, confrontational intimacy of new off Broadway productions. Painters went to hear jazz, playwrights went to see modern dance and Beat poets went to the folkie coffeehouses.
