Travis Edmonson: RIP

Sixties folk music legend Travis Edmonson has passed away following a long illness. He was 79 years old.

Best known as one half of the popular duo Bud & Travis with partner Bud Dashiell, Edmonson had been in ill health for some time. In addition to his concert and recording work with Dashiell, he was a member of The Gateway Singers as well as a gifted and successful solo artist in his native Arizona. Dashiell passed away in 1989.

Here’s a link to a rare television appearance of the duo, featuring an introduction from a very young Hugh Hefner. (Travis is on the left):
