Happy Traum Concert
Happy Traum is a respected folksinger, renowned for his infectious singing and outstanding guitar playing.  He has performed extensively throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, and Japan, both as a soloist and as a member of various groups. His avid interest in traditional and contemporary music has brought him recognition as a performer, writer, editor, session musician, folklorist, teacher, and recording artist.

Happy Traum began playing guitar and 5-string banjo as a teenager, amidst the legendary Greenwich Village folk scene of the 1950s and '60s.   Happy first appeared on record in 1963 with a group of young folk musicians, including Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Pete Seeger, Peter LaFarge and The Freedom Singers in an album called "Broadside, Vol.1." Happy cut the first recorded version of "Blowin' In The Wind,"  Since then appearing solo, with his brother, Artie, with Bob Dylan, and others, Happy Traum has produced 21 recordings.  Happy toured extensively alone and with his brother appearing in concerts, at music camps, and at countless festivals here and abroad.  According to Rolling Stone, Happy and Artie Traum "defined the Northeast folk music style."

Happy has also made a mark as a teacher, writer, and publisher.  Many people learned to play guitar from his 1965 book, "Fingerpicking Styles for Guitar" and the dozen books that followed it.  In 1967 Happy, with his wife and partner, Jane Traum, founded Homespun Tapes, and have built it into one of the world's leading producers of audio and video music instruction. An expert guitar and banjo player, Happy produces all of the lessons for Homespun and brings to it his many years of experience as a performer, writer, editor, folklorist, teacher and recording artist.  He also served as editor of Sing Out and has published articles in Rolling Stone, and numerous other magazines.
