Harp player Jeff "Rollie" Newsom is mourned. but fondly remembered.

We have sadly lost another great man in Jeff "Rollie" Newsome as he succombed to ALS August 4th after being diagnosed w/ the disease February 2010. Jeff was both a talented & wonderful man. At the age of 18 he attended The Band's famous The Last Waltz after driving Garth Hudson from Salt Lake City to San Francisco for the big gig. He also performed w/ Rick Danko in the '90s @ WY's Mangy Moose Saloon.

Too soon gone...
