With the Olympics on everyone’s mind right now, we re-listened to our interview with Louisiana blues pianist and vocalist Carol Fran—particularly the story of how she and her husband, guitarist Clarence Hollimon, came to perform at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta.
We’ve edited this two-minute audio clip in which Fran recalls that special period in her life before Hollimon’s death in 2000. Separately, Fran and Hollimon were fine musicians. After they got together in the 1980s, they were unstoppable.
