Unedited lo-fi recording of an outdoor improv/practice in the woods, flubs, fluffs, warts and all, Memorial Day 5/28/19.

In memoriam: Honour Hero Havoc. I only just found out tonight through local gossip that she passed away days before I coincidentally picked up the acoustic for the first time in a while. The sixth sense again.

Sadly, I'm not surprised as she was a genuine southern blues musician who lived the part with a well-known fondness for Grand Marnier. In downtown Salem, where I drank with her more than once when I was off the wagon, she was the real deal in a hipster scene full of packed decks.

Namahalo, Honour.
