Thread Name: Whereabouts of Barbara Dane?
Subject: Folklore: Whereabouts the Barbara Dane
Greetings to all and a beleated Happy Thanksgiving:
Does anyone have any current information about Barbara Dane? I understand she has a facebook page but it shows little or no activity. She must be in her 80's by now.
For those who are not aware Barbara Dane has a prolific career doing everything from traditional Jazz and Classic Blues from the 50's with the likes of Louis Armstrong and Gene Kurpa to doing stone Blues with Sam Ligthn's Hopkins to singer/songwriter/socal activism.
She is the author/compiler of "The Vietnam Songbook" Now a collector's item.
I recommend going to youtube and doing a search.You will find some remarkable material with the
Firehouse Five- to Pete Seeger to the Chambers Brothers remarkable resume for one person.
She was married to singer/guitarist/Flamenco/MartialArts Expert- Rolf Cahn (a great under rated talent- another thread)
I understand she is living in or around Oakland CA.
Does anyone have current information?
