Greg Trooper died the other day and a fine artistic talent is gone from our midst. The song here, one he wrote called “Green Eyed Girl” is an example of his immense talent. To you, Greg, I lift a cup in your honor.
And we just lost Maggie Roche, one of three performing sisters, aka The Roches. I knew Maggie from back in the day when I produced FolkTree Concerts, and she was a droll wit, both onstage and off. I loved their music. Maggie died after a lengthy battle and I lift a glass and say a prayer for her as well. Here are The Roches and “Hammond.”
