Daisy DeBolt

Canadian musician Daisy DeBolt passed away last week. Such a shock when I heard. My first thought was: “my Facebook’s just not going to be the same without your feisty comments, Daize.” And my second was, man, I am so lucky to have been able to meet her last year and tell the story of her iconoclastic 70s psych folk band Fraser and DeBolt. Her presence is such an important part of the documentary and I’m grateful that I had the opportunity to pay tribute with it to her indomitable spirit and her incomparable voice. In light of her passing, CBC’s Inside The Music is re-airing the documentary this Sunday (October 16) at 3 pm on Radio 2 and 9 pm on Radio One.

 

Thanks for the interview, Daisy. May your music and your spirit live on.

    Is a podcast available for the Fraser and Debolt show you rebroadcast? I only heard part of it while I was driving and have been searching the CBC.ca site for the full show. Please, please tell me how to get it if at all possible.
