Ian and Sylvia, on their rising careers in 1963

The Story


Ian and Sylvia have been performing together now for a few years, and they are busy, they say, thanks to the rise in popularity of country music with urban audiences, and the international appetite for folk music.  They talk to Take 30 host Paul Soles about making a living through music, and the hootenanny fad.
