Bob Lind and instrumentIn 1966, a song called "Elusive Butterfly" reached number five on Billboard's Top 100 pop music chart.

The song was written and performed by a young Colorado singer named Bob Lind, who got his start in Denver's thriving folk music scene in the early 60s.

"Elusive Butterfly" was recorded by many other artists, including Aretha Franklin, Glen Campbell, and Cher, but it was Lind's only hit, and he later turned his back on the music business.

Lind recorded an album of new material in 2012, and on Friday night at the Paramount Theatre in Denver, he'll be inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame, along with Judy Collins, the Serendipity Singers and Chris Daniels.
