Music is in Adam Traum's blood. His father, Happy Traum, was a Greenwich Village folk music icon, who recorded with Pete Seeger, Phil Ochs and Bob Dylan.

The vocalist-guitarist's mix of folk, country, rockabilly and blues has made him one of the more intriguing entertainers on the Americana scene.
