(Ian & Sylvia - no record collection worth its salt was without them)

Back to the Hollywood Bowl this week. This time from 1965. The first Hollywood Bowl appearance of Ian & Sylvia. They had been together since 1959 and were performing and recording regularly up to the early 1970's when folk music more or less waned from the pop scene. But in 1965 it was still pretty much holding its own and Ian & Sylvia had a loyal following.

This concert, part of the Hollywood Bowl "Folk Night" series also featured the first Bowl appearance of Josh White, as well as Bud & Travis, Judy Collins and The Brothers Four. I'll add those in the coming weeks.

But here's Ian & Sylvia, as they sounded one night in 1965.
