Ives, Burl

Ives, Burl
orig. Charles Icle Ivanhoe Ives

born June 14, 1909, Jasper county, Ill., U.S.
died April 14, 1995, Anacortes, Wash.

U.S. singer and actor.

Ives began performing at age four and learned Scottish, English, and Irish ballads from his grandmother. He left college to hitchhike around the U.S., collecting songs from hoboes and drifters. Soon after his postwar concert debut in New York City, he was hailed by Carl Sandburg as "the mightiest ballad singer of this or any other century." He recorded more than 100 albums and had hits with "I Know an Old Lady (Who Swallowed a Fly)," "The Blue Tail Fly," "Big Rock Candy Mountain," "Frosty the Snowman," and "A Little Bitty Tear." He appeared in many films
including East of Eden (1955), Desire Under the Elms (1958), Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958), and The Big Country (1958, Academy Award)
and on Broadway.
