Sunday, August 9th, 2015 we lost a kindred soul, gifted songwriter performer and champion of human rights. Our grief is overwhelming…Audrey Auld performed at our very first house concert, and what a night it was! Remembering you with sweet, sassy thoughts, Audrey as I watch it again. I hope you’re making as much noise in that angel band as you made down here with us. Play on girl, play on.
