Jeannie Brand's THE FOLKSINGER'S DAUGHTER Endorsed By Three More Folk Backstage Babies

The daughters of Rosalie Sorrels, Carolyn Hester, and Clancy Brother Pat Clancy chime in to endorse Jeannie Brand's memoir of growing up the daughter of famed folksinger and composer Oscar Brand.
NEWPORT, R.I. - April 18, 2018 - PRLog -- Jeannie Brand's The Folksinger's Daughter has gained great critical success since its publication in May of 2017 - including some 25 rave customer reviews on Amazon.

Now three more daughters of prominent folk artists have joined the chorus of praise for Jeannie's remarkable book.

Leish Clancy, daughter of Pat Clancy (and niece to the rest of The Clancy Brothers!): "I just finished this book by my friend Jeannie. I highly recommend it, especially for those who had a connection to the folk scene in Greenwich Village in the fifties through the seventies. It's a tribute to her dad Oscar Brand, who always seemed to be at the center of that scene, performing, writing songs and jump-starting the careers of many other artists, some of whom became much more famous than he did. It is also a moving memoir. If you had a parent who was a performer or who had a larger-than-life personality, if you were the product of a messy divorce or had a step-family, you may find the the highs and lows of Jeannie's story familiar. There is no slogging through this book. The writing is authentic and fresh, and it moves along at a clip. I couldn't put it down."

Amy Blume, daughter of folk legend Carolyn Hester: "If you like biographies, historical works, or are a fan of folk music, this read is compelling. Ms. Brand tells of a period that changed politics and our country's moral makeup from a perspective that is highly unusual and paints a picture of the family life of a man who was considered key to the movement by all of the icons of the period. Very interesting read."

Shelley Ross-Sorrels, daughter of famed folksinger Rosalie Sorrels: "Jeannie is able to share her experiences, good and bad on how she was impacted and inspired, even troubled by the folk music movement of that time. Jeannie's father was instrumental and inspirational in sharing the values of music with a healing, caring, impactful and loving way. It is quite obvious that Jeannie will always share the love of music that Oscar Brand gave to his audience, and his legacy will be carried on through her own inspirations."
