A trou­ba­dour comes to Galisteo

Pasatiempo - - PASATIEMPO -

The charm of liv­ing in Galisteo so in­spired Burl Ives, one of Amer­ica’s most fa­mous folk singers, that he com­posed a sweet ode to the sleepy lit­tle vil­lage. The story be­hind how Ives came to live briefly in North­ern New Mex­ico in the late 1960s in­volves an Amer­i­can movie pro­ducer, a Swedish film di­rec­tor, a Bri­tish movie mogul, and a young gover­nor who wanted film­mak­ers to come to his state. Jean Cocteau Cin­ema screens The McMasters, the Western filmed en­tirely in New Mex­ico that brought Ives here in the first place, on Sun­day, June 18. On the cover is an AP photo of the singer and his Martin gui­tar in Hol­ly­wood on Nov. 27, 1947.
