I heard the sad news this morning that David Lamb of the wonderful Rhode Island folk duo Brown Bird lost his battle with leukemia yesterday. I’d like to send my very best wishes and heartfelt condolences to his partner and band mate MorganEve Swain and other friends and family.
I had the great honor of being in the audience for their stunning 2011 Newport Folk Festival set. It was an amazingly soulful and profoundly moving performance. David will be deeply missed not only by those who knew him, but by the many people who were captivated by their music.
