One thought on “Schedule

  1. Dear Alan, I got married so my last name changed, and I started going by my first and middle name in honor of my grandmother, Sylvia Martin from Southwestern Virginia. Thanks for the compliment about the Common Ground appearance! One of my favorite musical places. I’ve heard a lot of great blues and other styles there. Great people as well and a very important mission towards peace and nonviolence.
