Burl Ives Last Solo Concert (1991)
Today we are pleased to share with you Burl Ives' last solo performance held at Brodniak Hall to benefit Island Hosptial Pediatric Services. The concert, which "sold out before the advertising ink was dry," netted $20,000 under the sponsorship of the Island Hospital Medical Foundation. The 81-year-old legend gave his all - charming and delighting the appreciative audience for 90 minutes.
A huge thanks to the Burl & Dorothy Ives Estate for allowing us to use this footage. Follow them @burlivesofficial!
