Odetta

Our guest this week on Art of the Song is Dean Gitter. Reading the liner notes for Dean’s latest project is a veritable who’s who in American Folk Music. In those tiny pages, we found enough information to keep researching the journey of folk music for months to come. After a career that included managing legends like Odetta, Dean left the folk scene to stretch his wings in other entrepreneurial endeavors. Now, with the release of his album, Carl Sandburg’s American Songbag 2.0, Dean has returned to his roots, and we are the better for it.
