SKU: Kingswood 1503 Categories: ,


Simply put, Bob Ingram is the dean of the Coconut Grove folk music scene.
In the 1960’s, the Grove was fertile ground for the folk music. The coffee house was the venue for the folk musician and the area surrounding the Grove had several of them including The Flick. Soon, folk icons like Joni Mitchell, Fred Neil, Vince Martin , Spanky and Our Gang, Jimmy Buffet, Steve Goodman, John Sebastian and many others came to the Grove to partake in its laid back attitude, warm weather and communal environment, all which contributed to the folk process– great musicians all in the same place, at the same time. The result was the evolution from traditional folk music to folk rock. Yes, the Grove was the genesis of Crosby, Still, Nash, Poco and I suppose, The Eagles.revival. Bob was part of Les Baxter’s Balladeers along with David Crosby, releasing an album in 1963.
Most of the musicians moved on from the Grove, but Bob Ingram remained. He started a family with his beautiful wife Gay, who was instrumental in the cause to save dolphins.
In the spring on 2014, I accompanied Vince Martin to the 50th Reunion of The Flick Coffee House. Bob Ingram performed and his role as the dean of the scene was confirmed. The result is Postcards From Coconut Grove, a work that caps a 50 plus year career, proving that Bob Ingram is vibrant and highly relevant artist. With his old band mate David Crosby providing harmony, this new album represents a historic reunion that will secure Bob’s place in the evolution of folk rock.
