Tami Neilson's latest album Don't Be Afraid fearlessly and lovingly deals with the death of her father and fellow musician Ron Neilson. While in her native Canada to farewell her father,  Tami and her family collaborated on her latest long-player as they grieved; co-writing songs with her brother, as her mother recounts stories from Tami's childhood.

Tami talks to Emma Smith about the realities of being a parent to young children while being a grieving daughter and  a performing musician. Keep your tissues close before you press play.
