In the early 1940’s writer McKinley Cantor introduced Burl Ives to the great author Carl Sandburg. "It’s a satisfaction," McKinley said, "to bring together the most noted living ballad singer born in  the 19th century, yourself, and the mightiest ballad singer born in the 20th century, Burl Ives.

Carl Sandburg pushed a lock of white hair out of his face and looked up at McKinley. "Burl  Ives,"  he said, " is the mightiest ballad singer born in any century!"

This website is dedicated to the perpetuation of this legacy.   Join us as we celebrate the life and times of Burl Ives, ... truly an "American Icon."
