Young’s daughter, Philomene Grandin, said Wednesday that Young died late Monday at his home in Stockholm, citing “natural causes”.
After establishing himself as a noted figure in the world of folk music in America and particularly New York, Young moved to Sweden in 1973 and went into business there and continued his triumphing of folk. The businessman also owned a story in NYC which gave a helping hand to all new budding musicians.
Grandin said: “He had opened his heart to so many people, so many poets who came to his shop,” in an interview with The Associated Press. “And he was a fantastic father,” she added.
Young is survived by his daughter, son and three grandchildren.
