Thread Name: Obit: John Herald (Greenbriar Boys) (1939-2005)
Subject: RE: Obit: John Herald (Greenbriar Boys)
Another correction:
Aurora Block (Rory) was about 12 years old in the heyday of her father's Saturday afternoon jams. She was first getting interested in the music and as a beginner certainly did not pick with John Herald, who was already a formidable musician.

If anything, Stephen Grossman was a greater impact on her but that was to come in a few years.

I played there on and off for a few years as did several hundred others. It was a great way to begin a Saturday night.

I remember having a crush on Maria D'Amato for years. She and Alan did fiddle duets from time to time.
