The Highwaymen - 50th Anniversary Special

Date: 
Thursday, September 8, 2011 - 7:00pm

Fifty years ago, in early September, a surprising hit, "Michael" by the Highwaymen (recorded more than a year before), became the #1 song in the world. It would go on to become the most successful traditional folk recording ever! For four hours we will celebrate the legacy of The Highwaymen, over thirteen-plus albums (eight in the 60s, plus additional CDs after the group reunited in the 90s). "Michael", "Cotton Fields", "The Gypsy Rover", "Santianno", and countless others from the group's repertoire, and featuring interviews with the group's three surviving members: Bob Burnett, Steve Butts, and Steve Trott.
