From Tony Quarrington:

Sad news of the passing this morning of the wonderful singer Daisy DeBolt ... of complications after a brief illness... I produced her 2001 album LIVE EACH DAY WITH SOUL, and was happy to feature her on a track (One Vessel) of Willie P. Bennett's HEARTSTRINGS, 1998. Condolences to her son Jake DeBolt, whom she was able to visit on the West Coast, despite her illness. And to her many,many friends. RIP Daisy Xxxx

I recently heard a 20-something woman play a Fraser and DeBolt record in the coffee shop where she worked. Them Dance Hall Girls must rank in the top 10 Canadian songs ever written, although Daisy had much more in her catalogue. I even had the honour of opening for her in Edmonton on freezing January night about 15 years ago. A big loss for Canadian music.

I last heard Daisy at the tribute to Willie P. Bennett at Hugh's Room soon after Willie's death. She will be missed.

In the interest of giving credit where credit is due, Them Dance Girls was written by Allan Fraser.

You're right, of course, about Daisy having much more in her catalog. She produced many more solo recordings under her own name than the 2 LP's she did with Allan.

Here's the text of the obit from http://daisydebolt.com/

DAISY DEBOLT (1945-2011)

Friends and fans of Daisy DeBolt will be saddened to hear that she passed away October 4, 2011 after a very brief illness. More to be announced here later.

The talent of Daisy DeBolt is the exuberant synthesis of family, musical and creative influences and is also a contributing force in the evolution of contemporary music. Her energy, humour and power as a vocalist have been affecting audiences since the 1960's and prompted critic Peter Goddard to write: "Her music doesn't showcase its roots, it contributes to them."

Daisy's early influences explain the origins of her musical talent. Her mother Marjorie was a music teacher who led a band in which young Daisy played guitar. Daisy's father played chromatic harmonica and banjo. In high school Daisy studied guitar with the legendary Lenny Breau.

After one year in fine arts at the University of Manitoba, Daisy decided to make music her career. After arriving in Toronto in 1965 she opened for the likes of Lonnie Johnson and Jessie Fuller and began working with several bands, including the Allen-Ward Trio.

In 1968, at the Mariposa Folk Festival, she met Allan Fraser. Soon after, they began touring as Fraser & DeBolt. In 1970 they were signed to Columbia Records in New York.

Their first album received rave reviews and was followed by a second album and tours in the United States and Canada. In 1974 Fraser & DeBolt represented North America in Sopot, Poland at the International Song Festival.

Following the breakup of Fraser & DeBolt, Daisy wrote film scores for the National Film Board of Canada and worked with dance company Ballet Ys. She also explored reggae music with her band Don't Push Me Against The Fridge.

In the late 1980's Daisy began work on her first solo CD Soulstalking which she described as "alpine polka reggae." Meanwhile, she toured the folk festival circuit in Canada and made many appearances on CBC radio programs.

Daisy also took time out to star in the Theatre Calgary production of Country Hearts in which she played the lead role of Sam Slick. She was also musical director for a production of Nickel in Sudbury and she appeared in The Coming in Toronto.

In recent years Daisy performed at the Women In E Motion concert series in Bremen, Germany and has done club dates and concert tours in Canada. She has also written music for the YTV series 15 Love.

Completely agree Guest Mike Sadaua. Well said.


I do not know all the background of the love that took place between Daisy and Allan or even how long. But Allan recently lost his sole mate of many years "Donna Louthood"as well. They performed for us at our coffee house to a full house back in November of 2010. So if you wish to send a personal message to Allan (two sole-mates gone a few months apart.) I am sure he would appreciated it. He is feeling very empty. You can find him on facebook.

Never mind my last post. Bobad and myself went up to Toronto and had a great time. What a wonderful display of talent. We got to meet Brent Titcomb, Paul Mills, Brian Blain, had a great chat with Allan Fraser and many others. Hay! C.Ham, were you there? If so you avoided us as usual ( this is an ongoing game between us as he/she will not come forward and introduce themselves.).

Bobad, maybe you can fill in some of the blanks I left out.

I corresponded with Daisy's son Jake today and he said that he is hoping to get a DVD released of the evening - it will make for a great memento of a special evening.

Fraser and DeBolt made it onto a television show for one song, which I recall being "Gypsy Solitaire" ("Hold the table steady..."). Have heard nothing of them before or since, and have never forgotten them, they sounded like nothing else around.

There is a new double album release of archival performances of Fraser and DeBolt which were all recorded between 1969 and 1974. None appears on the either of the duo's Columbia Records lp's. Available at Roaratorio Records. The album title is Fraser and DeBolt: THIS SONG WAS BORNE.
