Subject: Barbara Dane biography
From: GUEST,David Shea, Spain
Date: 13 Jun 02 - 12:10 PM

Dear Mudcat readers, I am researching a biography on the music and activism of jazz/blues and sometime folkie singer Barbara Dane. If anyone has ever worked with Barbara or has any constructive comments on her work with SingOut and Paredon, anti-Vietnam War stuff, please write me here or directly at dshea@sinf.ulpgc.es or dshea@idecnet.com. Also if you know of other posting places where I might find BD fans or friends, let me know. Thanks for any comments. David Shea, Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain

Have you tried the Google search facility? There are about 1,100 hits dealing with Barbara Dane. Access www.google.com and type in "Barbara Dane" (not forgetting the inverted comas). Apologies if you have already done this. Good luck.

Have you been in touch with Barbara directly, and is this project being undertaken with her support and consent? I'm sure she can provide you with any information you need; she's a very helpful person and has a great memory! Sharp as a tack.

Dear Katherine and Fiolar, Thanks for the interest and info. Yes, Barbara has worked with me extensively on this project both in the states and here in Spain where I am based. I have hours of oral history stuff from her and her partner Irwin Silber. I have also corresponded with a few of her Paredon artists (Bev Grant, Charlie King, Nobuko and Si Kahn) but I need more fan-based and colleague stuff. I also plan to get her FBI and CIA files through the Freedom of Information Act. Regards, David Shea

Wish I could help with info, but I really loved her voice, and still sing 2 songs I first heard her do...Away with Rum and How Long Blues...Glad to know she's still around and that you are going to do a biography on her. Good luck.
