The Ultimate Guide to Run for Your Life Starring Ben Gazzara welcomes fans of Travis Edmonson and Bud & Travis to our salute to these brilliant musicians.

In 1982, just before the paralysing stroke which ended his performing career, Travis Edmonson recorded the landmark PBS program BORDER CROSSINGS, in which he shed light on the music of the American Southwest, and sang songs to illustrate his talk.

On location at an old stage coach stop, Travis Edmonson tells about the music of country dances and sings his song Vamos al Baile. He also talks of the importance of water, loss of the Indian legacy, and the Mexican flute, then sings a Huapango song, Sinalouense.
