Singer Jane Olivor went from performing folk music in clubs in New York City in the early 1970s to becoming a major pop star, performing at Carnegie Hall. But with fame came misfortune, with the death of her husband and a long battle with stage fright that kept her from singing for several years. Olivor has returned to the stage and has released a new CD and DVD of a recent live performance. Jane Olivor talks to NPR's Liane Hansen about her return to singing and the Safe Return project.
