It is year 16 for Lynne's annual show and she is working to move forward despite the loss of her beloved husband Ron DeWitte. The music must go on, so join Lynne and her group of friends Julia Andrews, Dave Ollinger, Greg Kanz - and special guest Twin Cities guitarist Dan Schwatrz.. Expect a special tribute to Ron and his music.
It is with great sadness that I must tell you my beloved husband, Ron DeWitte died on February 16, 2018 from pancreatic cancer. Those of you who were fortunate enough to hear Ron play guitar know that he was an amazingly gifted and generous musician. It was the privilege of my life to be able to be his musical partner and especially his wife. We thank all of you for your support over the past few years - he fought without ceasing and played music to the very end of his earthly life. I will move forward and continue to make music and update this site when I'm ready. What I have learned is that a broken heart can continue beating.
