Deckman Burl Ives the musician (instrumentalist)? (46) RE: Burl Ives the musician ? 20 Apr 19


I think it's VERY EASY to sit on the fence and try to evaluate events that happened before you were there. Burl Ives' appearance before HUAC was, and remains, very controversial. I wasn't there and I never had a conversation with him about that.

As one of my musical teachers and a person whom I continue to admire, I can't add much to the discussion of his loyalty concerns. But, unless you were alive then and can speak with authority of the 'temper of those times', I choose to continue to respect his musicianship his lifelong efforts to preserve a knowledge and respect for our folk music. bob(deckman)nelson
