Happy Traum has been a star in the folk firmament since the early days of the folk revival. He is a much-loved and admired folk singer, writer, teacher, recording artist and first-rate fingerstyle guitarist. He was a student of blues guitar legend Brownie McGhee, who was a major influence on his picking style.

Happy has played in concerts, clubs and festivals throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia and Japan, both solo and with his late brother, Artie Traum, with whom he performed for more than 40 years.

Happy has also appeared and/or recorded with Bob Dylan, Levon Helm, John Sebastian, Larry Campbell, Eric Andersen, Allen Ginsberg and and many other major figures in the folk music world. As one of America’s best-known guitar instructors, he has taught at major guitar workshops throughout the country; is the author of more than a dozen best-selling guitar instruction books; and has produced more than 600 music lessons on DVDs, CDs and downloads for his internationally-renowned company, Homespun Music Instruction, which he co-founded with his wife, Jane, in 1967.

His most recent CD, "Just For the Love of It,” received a four-star review from Rolling Stone.

SNEAK PEEK! Happy Traum performed "Careless Love" during our concert. See the whole show when we Hit Rewind on July 30.
