MM & McEuen

Here are my musical heroes with whom I've had the pleasure of working with over the past few months.   Top row is John McEuen, founder of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band smiling with me and then playing my 107 year old banjo.  We had a little time before his performance in Milwaukee.   Next to him, I'm with Tony Trischka up at the Midwest Banjo camp.  Brilliant musician and banjo pioneer.  

In the second row is my choir, the Passages World Music Choir who are kids from my neighborhood in Chicago.   And the lower right hand corner picture is Darol Anger, violinist extraordinaire who was the first violinist in the David Grisman Quintet with Tony Rice and Mike Marshall.   These days he's at the Berklee College of Music.   We did a Creativity Workshop in Sedona AZ.
