Thread Name: Whatever happened to Raun MacKinnon?
Subject: RE: Whatever happened to Raun MacKinnon?
Raun was a regular performer at the 15 Below Coffee House in Timonium, MD and a group of us would go to hear her perform everytime she was in town. She'd usually stay with her friends, Hank and "Docky" Lingenfelder. Years later, she began bringing a bass player named "Jeremiah Burnham" with her "on tour". Now, I've read that she is Mrs. Burnham. Raun was/is? an incredible singer, guitarist, piano player and songwriter...and a genuinely nice, down to earth person. I'd heard she'd moved to CA and was involved in music publishing out there, many years ago.

Ron Smith, in an earlier post, mentioned the name,Danny Smith, an incredible guitar player, who lived in Baltimore for many years before retuning to the Atlanta area. He was the "house guitarist" at the Foghorn Coffee house. Those of us who knew him always wondered what happened to him after he left and Ron mentioned that he passed on in 2002. If anyone knows anything else about Danny, I'd love know hear about what he was up to before his death.
