Level Best

My husband Kelley and I have been a part of the acoustic music scene in Southern Illinois since the 1980s, as members of several bluegrass bands. Kelley, an accomplished guitar flat-picker, was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's disease in 2014, secondary to a severe Rocky Mountain spotted fever infection (a tick-borne illness). As his condition has progressed, we felt compelled to record a sort of bucket list project, celebrating the many fine people we have come to know as a result of our musical endeavors.
