Thanks to Valerie for the wonderful article about Travis. The items on this page are wonderful.

I hope readers will visit and, as well as other sites where he is represented and where there are tributes to the great musician. There are now many videos of Travis, from early days with Bud & Travis, to just before the aneurysm and stroke with the Border Crossings PBS special, to more recent performances in various capacities, including singing "Sin Ti" with a mariach band in Scottsdale and singing "Everybody Loves Saturday Night" with the Kingston Trio (including Bob Shane) in 2004.

There are also YouTube videos of various artists serenading Travis, sometimes with Travis singing along.
