Folk legend TRAVIS EDMONDSON has died after a lengthy battle with Parkinson's Disease. He was 76.
The singer/songwriter teamed up with Bud Dashiell to form popular early 1960s duo Bud & Travis, who were part of the folk music revival.
Peter, Paul & Mary star Peter Yarrow, who performed with Bud & Travis at the Hollywood Bowl in 1963, tells the Los Angeles Times newspaper, "Bud & Travis helped to launch the folk renaissance with some of the most beautiful music we ever heard. Travis had a mellifluous voice.
The duo recorded hits like La Bamba and Malaguena Salerosa. They split in 1965.
Dashiell died in 1989.
Swinton herself is an ex-boarding school pupil.
