Thread Name: Whatever happened to Raun MacKinnon?
Subject: RE: Whatever happened to Raun MacKinnon?
Wow! I was wandering around, and chanced upon three Fast Folk Musical Magazine albums which were apparently released in the mid-80's, each one containing a track by Raun, with one track by Raun & Jerry. I was fortunate to meet Raun & Jerry at a showcase gig at the Bottom Line in NYC, back in (I believe) 1975 or so. I was standing around after my band finished our set, and I was approached by a radiantly lovely woman who said that she had really enjoyed my bass playing. I found sufficient wit to ask if she needed a bassist, and she explained that her husband Jerry was her bass player and she didn't have the heart to fire him. I have never forgotten the gracious encouragement I received from these two lovely people. I wonder if they need a bass player...
