Touring nationally for a quarter of a century, Joanne Rand “continues to push the art pedal to the floor,” releasing her 13th CD, “The Nashville Sessions,” a mix of songs recorded during her 2012 guitar apprenticeship in the U.S. music capital. Rand has appeared with the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Bob Weir, John Hartford, and recently earned a BFA in Music Composition. Rand’s 2010 CD release was submitted for Grammy nomination by San Francisco Recording Academy’s President. You can’t keep this woman down, her last four CDs (of original songs) were released in the past four consecutive years and in 2012 she toured from border to border in the U.S.
