Post Attn SpringFest / MagFest veterans - sad news
Got some sad news tonight.

Sue Cunningham, award winning fiddler extrordinaire, has passed on after a five year battle with cancer. Sue played many Mag and Spring fests, backing Jim Lauderdale and Peter Rowan regularly, and also formed the Rowan / Cunningham band with Peter's two brothers. She was a Mag family regular who would hop up to add sweet notes to someone's performance, whenever and wherever. Her playing was always sympathetic, and elevated the performance.

More recently, she cowrote and performed the song cycle Find Your Angel, a civil war tale of love and loss, along with Verlon Thompson and photographer Frank Serio. I took the family to see a performance of this last year, and it was simply wonderful.

Sue was incredibly talented and was well loved in the festival community. Peace and healing to Frank, and to the rest of her family and her many many friends.
