The Troubadour Tribune – News & Commentary on the Singer-Songwriters of the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Between 1968 and 1974, six singer-songwriters re-shaped popular music and created the soundtrack for a generation. Forty years on, they continue to make compelling music and reach new audiences. The Troubadour Tribune is your website to follow your favorite artists.

The Troubadour Tribune is written by Corey Blake, one of the ‘new audiences’ demographic. He’s been closely following James Taylor and his peers for two decades, and always wondered why there wasn’t one website that catered to fans of the ’70s singer-songwriter movement. So, he decided to stop waiting and create one himself.

While most well-versed in James Taylor, he has plenty still to learn about some of the others. The Troubadour Tribune is always looking for contributors. If you’d like to join the Tribune, either for a limited time or as part of the regular Tribune staff, please email.

  5. Thank you all for the kind words!

    Bob, I have corrected the link to your web-site. Like Jose, you have a great resource. Thank you both for your efforts.

    Scotty, all three that you mention are wonderful talents and deserve to be covered. Unfortunately, my resources are stretched thin, which prevents me from expanding to the ones you’ve mentioned. I wish I could but it’s just not realistic at this time. I’m still preparing a new format that I hope will improve the quality of the coverage while narrowing our focus.

    Keep visiting and please spread the word. The more that stop by, the more we’ll be able to do in the future.

    Thank you!

    Hi Corey,
    Please forgive my request. I overlooked the all important years that you are focusing on, the late 60’s and the early 70’s.
    Keep up the good work..your site is a very pleasant one to read.
    Scotty

    No problem at all! No need to apologize for being enthusiastic.

    Thank you for reading!

    It is great to have one website covering the news and highlights of the artists we admire and/or grew up with. “Soundtrack of a generation” sometimes seems like a contrived statement, but in reality, the themes of the music of this half-dozen singer-songwriters capture the highs and lows of the late 60’s and early 70’s, as well as part of the escapism we needed when the events around us became too much to bear (ie, “Up on The Roof”).

    Well done, and keep it going, Corey.

  10. Corey Blake says:

    Thank you so much, SuperD!

  11. Bob DiCorcia says:

  13. Having been so fortunate as to have worked with Yusuf in this video (as a Dolly Parton lookalike) I anxiously await it’s release.

    Great website! Have you heard of the Amchitka CD? The Amchitka CD is a digitally remastered recording of the 1970 concert put on by Joni Mitchell, James Taylor and Phil Ochs that launched Greenpeace. The CD costs $21 and ALL proceeds go to the funding of our numerous environmental campaigns internationally. As part of the agreement with the generous artists involved, we cannot sell this CD in stores.

    It is available online at http://www.amchitka-concert.com/

    If you know of any ways/contacts to promote this fantastic CD please let me know. Thanks and ENJOY!

    Carly,
    The live concert at Martha’s Vineyard years ago is still one of my top favorites. Coming Around Again with the kids was GREAT. I didn’t learn till today that in one way or another most of them are related to you.
    (: Cool!
    Peace & Love,
    Rick Ryan
