Bud and Travis
Although they only had one hit single, "The Ballad of the Alamo", in 1960, Bud Dashiell and Travis Edmundson made several successful albums for Liberty Records between 1958 and 1965, among them "In Concert", "Naturally", "Perspective on Bud and Travis", "The Latin Album" and "In Person at the Cellar Door". Both were experienced folk singers by the time they teamed up. Both, however, were vastly different types of people off stage, and long-simmering hostilities led to the fight which ended their partnership in 1965. Read more... death of a brain tumor in 1979. Travis Edmundson, despite some health setbacks in the early 1980's (a near-fatal brain annurism), continues to write and perform today (2003) and is a much respected figure among the folk music old guard.
