I am consumed with tears and sadness. I’ve just been informed of the passing of my friend, Andy Mackie: September 19, 1938 – November 5, 2011.
I cannot begin to explain Andy’s amazing personality. This man was my personal hero. A true and compassionate musician with a heart for service.
I am so humbled and honored to have worked with Andy. His legacy continues and his work is the reason why my MUST KEEP MUSIC IN SCHOOLS!
I have a short blog about him here: The Harmonica Man and I hope you’ll enjoy my short documentary on Andy Mackie. Be inspired.
I’ll miss you Andy…
