Lee created Gadyloo after her previous fanzine, Caravan, became so successful that she found it difficult dealing with advertisers. It was a mimeographed fanzine that ran for six issues.
Contributors included Roy Berkely, Dick Greenhaus, Mike Seeger. Dave van Ronk and Winnie Winston. The zine frequently covered the exploits of the group the New Lost City Ramblers.
Gardyloo was sold at Iazzy Young's Folklore Center in Greenwich Village, NYC.
