Since leaving a public school teaching career in 1997, Debra Cowan is enjoying success as one of America's foremost interpreters of traditional and contemporary folksongs. Her two solo CDs, "Dad's Dinner Pail" and "The Long Grey Line" have enjoyed airplay on folk radio world-wide and in 2006, her version of "Walloping Window Blind" was published in Sing Out! Magazine. Her song renditions have been included in a number of compilations, most recently the Free-Reed Records box set, "RT-The Life and Times of Richard Thompson" with her version of Thompson's "Has He Got a Friend For Me". She tours in the United Kingdom every year and travels the USA performing in coffeehouses, museums, libraries and schools. Her many live radio appearances include the live concert series' "Folkstage" on WFMT in Chicago and WVBR's "Bound For Glory" in Ithaca, NY. Her festival appearances include the Greater New Bedford Summerfest (MA), Mystic Seaport Sea Music Festival (CT), Champlain Valley Folk Festival (VT), Lancaster Maritime Festival (UK), Edinburgh Fringe Festival (UK) and the Chico World Music Festival (CA).
