Subject: RE: Obit: John Herald (Greenbriar Boys)
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.
