Barbara Dane celebrates the release of the Smithsonian Folkways Recordings 2 CD set, ‘Hot Jazz, Cool Blues and Hard-Hitting Songs’ with a special concert featuring the Tammy Hall Trio and guests from Cuba, Osamu and Pablo Menendez. This career-spanning collection reflects over 60 years of Dane’s eclectic musical history and offers unparalleled insight into the living legend cited as an inspiration by Bob Dylan and Bonnie Raitt, and whose own early mentors included Pete Seeger and Count Basie.
Now in her 90th year, Dane maintains “a jazz musician’s sense of rhythm, a blues singer’s deep investment in the material, and a folk stylist’s attention to authenticity” (The Boston Globe). Harnessing the energy of someone half her age, she continues inspiring audiences as an outspoken and indomitable woman who fearlessly followed her conscience and is still going strong, free of regrets, with wit, wisdom and swing.
