Subject: RE: Obit: Allen MacMcHale
I just found out from Bob Frost, via Facebook.
Bluegrass Today Obit
I'm still in a bit of shock.
I first met Mac in 1973 when I worked for Ashley-Jasper Associates in Kennebunk and he repped for 3M. I was present at some of the first gigs of Northeast Winds in Kennebunkport. On our wedding night, Tom and I (we were staying that night at the Captain Lord Mansion) went to see Northeast Winds at the Anchorage in Lower Village. I'm babbling...I'm in a bit of shock, I think.
He and our friend Emery Hutchins have recorded three (I think) CDs as Two Old Friends and Mac would occasionally show up at our Friday Press Room sessions.
