RIP Susanna Clark (March 11, 1939 - June 27, 2012)

I've gotten many sweet condolence calls and messages about Susanna Clark's death, yet I don't feel worthy of them. I'm not a close family friend. I was Guy's publicist until I started working on his biography, but even then, I was Guy's publicist, not Susanna's.

Now, I'm the biographer.  At an authors panel earlier this year at Folk Alliance someone from the audience asked the panel if it was easier to write about someone while they were still alive or better if the subject…

Beautiful Dreamer: The Songs of Stephen Foster Producer Notes

The American Roots Publishing Story…So Far…



American Roots Publishing was a dream planted in my subconscious by a conversation with Joe Ely two years ago.

This One's For Him: A Tribute To Guy Clark producer notes

My introduction to Guy Clark came early.  I was 14 years old in 1975 when a friend of my dad’s brought over Guy’s first LP Old No. 1.  Dad was into Memphis soul music and the friend tried and failed to interest him in folk music.  But one listen to Old No. 1 and folk music was IT for me.  “She Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere” was the theme song for my teen angst. I eventually moved on to other folkies and 70s rock…

Thanks for the article. Susana's death was one that affected me most of someone I never met. Guy Clark has been a part of my wife and my life from courting to concerts to singing to each other on trips cross country. I don't want to hear he is not doing well. Look forward to book. Like all fans who have met him I feel strongly about him and want him to continue in my life.

Tamara,

I haven't done the ND friend thing, so break me in easy! Really appreciated your piece on Susanna Clark. I saw Guy more than a few times at smaller intimate venues back in the 70's & 80's and she was always there, always kind of an enigmatic amplifier of the vibe of the place. I hadn't thought of her in years and didn't  know of her condition but she randomly came to mind twice in the weeks before I learned of her passing . . .

Tamara,

I'd love to be a ND friend with you.  I just moved back to Mil in 2010 after 20 years in Madison. I noticed you doing something very interesting and impressive recently. Are you involved with producing concerts? Or was it some very insightful commentary or work on ND.com? I wanted to investigate further then got distracted (of course).  I also have a blog. Culture Currents (Vernaculars Speak).
