With colorful anecdotes and incisive memories, and the aid of vintage photos and music clips, Happy Traum relates some of his adventures as an active member of the New York folk revival; his arrest for civil disobedience; his participation in what has become known as the “Great Folk Singer’s Riot” in Washington Square; and his friendships with some of the leading folk artists of the day.

Happy was a regular in the Washington Square Park jam sessions, studied blues guitar with Brownie McGhee and met, among many others, a young Bob Dylan. His group, the New World Singers, were the first to perform and record “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “Don’t Think Twice,” and Dylan wrote the liner notes for their Atlantic Records album.

Happy recounts his later friendship with Bob and the Dylan family in Woodstock, as well as his association with Allen Ginsberg, George Harrison, Pete Seeger, Dave Van Ronk and many other notables on the scene.
