In December of 2013, I wrote about the folk-blues duo Brown Bird’s Dave Lamb’s fight with cancer. I bought all their albums and listened to the song, By The Reins, incessantly (and still do). As I reflected on another young cancer fighter who died last week, my thoughts went back to this group and Dave Lamb. I hadn’t heard anything so I went to the band’s website and found out sadly that just four months after my post, he too died from his cancer. I was so sad to hear that as I thought the treatment may have been working. It’s been almost a year since he died, and I want to pay tribute to his legacy by dedicating this post to him and the beautiful music he and his partner MorganEve Swain made together.
