In memory of masterful singer-songwriter David Olney. David died January 18 of an apparent heart attack while performing at a festival in Florida. He was 71. I was already an admirer of David's songs and albums when I met him in 1997 when I was MC of the Rounder Records showcase at the Folk Alliance International conference in Toronto and he was one of the performers. His performance there was stunning. I took this photo during a late night showcase at the 2017 Folk Alliance International conference in Kansas City.
