    Barbara Dane LP and CD Bundle

    Barbara Dane is one of the unsung champions of American music. She turned away from the lure of fame and celebrity in the 1960s and instead dedicated her life to singing for peace and social justice. For over 60 years, she has been a trailblazing folk, blues, and jazz singer, serving as inspiration to artists such as Bob Dylan and Bonnie Raitt.

    In celebration of her 90th birthday, Smithsonian Folkways Recordings is proud to release Barbara Dane: Hot Jazz, Cool Blues & Hard-Hitting Songs, an expansive 2-disc retrospective of her eclectic musical history. Also marking the milestone, we have repressed Barbara Dane’s seminal 1966 album Barbara Dane and the Chambers Brothers on vinyl.

    For a limited time while supplies last, we are thrilled to offer both Hot Jazz Cool Blues & Hard-Hitting Songs and the Barbara Dane and the Chambers Brothers vinyl reissue together as a bundle!

    Both releases and the bundle are now available!
