In memory of Izzy Young (1928-2019)
People are asking if they can leave a donation to mark Izzy’s passing, a place or cause close to his heart.
Here is a suggestion from Izzy’s daughter Philomène and other close friends: MANNAMINNE is the work of Swedish artist Anders Åberg (1945-2018). Just like Izzy, Anders was a visionary whose frugal economy could not prevent him from leaving a lasting legacy. Mannaminne is an outdoor museum on the High-Coast of Sweden, where buildings, tramcars, art, music and cultures meet the natural beauty of Höga Kusten. Anders was inspired by Izzy and built a wooden bridge and other art works in Izzy’s honor.
When the Folklore Center closed in 2018, parts of Izzy’s massive folk music library were donated to Mannaminne and are housed there now.
