Connie Converse: Walking In the Dark

“Connie sang her songs at gatherings of friends, and once on television. The music industry of her day couldn’t pigeonhole her, and didn’t welcome her. Discouraged, Connie left New York in 1960, and in 1974 she wrote a series of farewell letters to her friends and family, packed up her Volkswagen Bug and disappeared. She has not been heard from since.”

An hour-long WNYC feature on obscure singer/songwriter Connie Converse whose material has been recently rediscovered.

A compilation of her music is available here.
