From 1960 until 1965 the duo of Bud (Dashiel) and Travis (Edmonson)
was one of the top acts on the folk scene, making hundreds of
appearances and recording ten LP records. Both had previously
performed as solo acts and with other groups, so when the duo

For Travis, one of those solo appearances was in December of
1966 in Tucson Arizona. The performances were recorded on reel-to-reel
tapes, which were given to Travis but were forgotten until recently
when Travis found them in an unlabeled box in storage.
From out of the past, here was Travis, 1966. His wonderful melodic
voice, the audience interaction, the charm and wit for which he
was famous, were preserved on these long forgotten tapes of these
two marvelous shows - The Tucson Tapes First Set and The Tucson
Tapes Second Set.
