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:

Wonderful interview. I met Oscar at a Folk Alliance Conference in the mid 90s. He lite up the lobby with his smile and his enthusiasm to play with and listen to others. His sweetness was palpable. We had some of his albums around the house when I was a kid...early 60s. Sure wish I had them now. I hear a bit of his spirit in Jeannie...doing good work! Thanks, again, for this wonderful interview.
