I so enjoyed talking with Jeannie Brand, the daughter of the legendary folk singer Oscar Brand, on the great legacy of her beloved father. Oscar Brand was not only a prolific song writer and performer in his own right; he also played a critical role in helping to launch the careers of Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Arlo Guthrie, and countless other great performers. Here's Oscar's story - from one who knows it best!
As part of her ongoing efforts, Jeannie has written a wonderful memoir, The Folk-Singer's Daughter, about growing up the daughter of a famous celebrity. I loved it and urge you to give it a read. It's at Amazon at:
Oscar Brand's YouTube site is highly recommended - full of great videos from all facets of his career. It's at:
I hope you enjoy this episode. If so, please like on I-Tunes, maybe give a good review, subscribe to the podcast on your favorite carrier...all those good things. Thank you Jeannie, and thank you, dear audience, for giving a listen!
