(Bud & Travis - at The Hollywood Bowl one last time)

Continuing the 1965 Folk Night at the Hollywood Bowl (last week was Ian & Sylvia and their first appearance at The Bowl) comes what became the final Hollywood Bowl appearance of Bud & Travis, who come on right after Ian & Sylvia. A regular fixture on the West Coast folk scene since the late 1950's, they performed numerous times at venues like The Ash Grove and had a loyal following.

This performance, aside from being their last Bowl appearance before splitting up, features a lot of material from their The Bud & Travis Latin Album which their label, Liberty was reluctant to issue. Fortunately for everyone they did as it showcases the remarkable talents these two had.

Sadly, both Bud and Travis are gone - Travis having died in May of this year. There are a number of fan sites devoted to them, and I have included a couple for you to check out.

Further evidence that good music is timeless.
