Travis Edmonsonhome bio

The Town Criers were an exciting young group of entertainers that toured and performed during the height of folk-music popularity in the United States (1961-1964). They reunited in 1993 to begin producing their current CD, Journey. Town Crier music was heard in coffee houses and on college campuses throughout the country where they often played to SRO audiences. They sang at some of the most popular folk clubs in Los Angeles (the Troubadour, the Unicorn, and the Garret). They were regular headliners at Orange County's Mon Ami, as well as performances at the Ice House in Pasadena, and San Diego's famous Land of Odin. Illness and military obligations prevented contracted performances at the hungry i in San Francisco and at Carnegie Hall, New York. They performed with Dick Gregory, the late Steve Allen, Mitzi Gaynor, and headlined Hal Ziegler's 1963 Hootenanny Tour that included Mason Williams and David Somerville (lead singer of the Diamonds). They appeared often on the Regis Philbin television show in San Diego and recorded Country Boy for Fred Astaire's AVA Records. The Town Criers were RCA's top contender to replace the Limeliters.

In Journey, the Town Criers have created a "musical mosaic" that combines many recognizable folk standards with original new music written exclusively for the CD. In fact, one of the joys of working on the project was the opportunity to include a group of superb instrumental musicians (many notable in their own right) that would provide the warm coloring to a canvas already being painted with rich and intricate vocal harmonies.
