  • One reel to reel recording. Boltin served as emcee. NOTE -- The original reel was inadvertently recorded on side 2 first, and then side 1. When digitized for preservation purposes, that sequence order was maintained. The tracks here are listed in the order of the reel recording, not the order as recorded at the festival. Therefore, notations are included as to which side of the reel the tracks are actually from. Detailed information on the performers can be found on the 1960 festival program, located in S 1619, box 1. Foy, Gill and Knight played as the Accordion Trio.
