We first met Maddie at a music festival in Southern California in the late l970's and instantly became friends; over the years our friendship grew and we have been so fortunate to have been close friends for over forty years.
It is no overstatement to say Maddie's passing is a huge loss to the music community and to the world in general; she was one of the very best people we have ever known. Maddie was exceptionally kind, witty, generous, gracious, caring and loving, and shared her voice and her music with love and joy.
To honor her memory, play or sing a song, share your music with others and remember to be kind. Be a good friend. Find joy in the simple things.
