Ann Rabson passed away this morning. She was one of the nicest memories that I have of Blues Week at the Augusta Heritage Center in Elkins, West Virginia. I attended blues week a few times in the early 1990s. Ann taught keyboards, so I did not take any of her classes, but she was there for the jam sessions and I played harp while she played keyboards and sang.
She was very talented and a very very sweet woman. She always supported my feeble attempts at making music.
Many of the wonderful people that I met at Blues Week have passed away. I will always treasure those 20 year old memories, but they are now tinged with sadness.
