From Nolan McKelvey on You Tube, April 2023: "Song for Holly Tarr"

"On April 3, 1990, the world lost Holly Tarr in the most shocking manner imaginable. I was not the closest friend to Holly Tarr, but her life and death have had a profound impact on my life. I wrote this song "at around the 30th anniversary of her passing. My friend since Kindergarten and fellow Okemos alum Catherine Chang Manning added fiddle. It was an emotional process. We thought a good way to keep Holly's spirit alive would be to contribute to the Holly Tarr Memorial Scholarship Fund. If you are compelled to contribute, please note your contribution is for Holly's scholarship. Here's the information: https://okemosmusicpatrons.org/ (click the donate button) Or go directly to the donation page here: https://www.paypal.com/donate/?hosted... Many thanks to Dorothy, Mark, Paul, and Christy, for their approval and to the many friends of Holly who contributed photos for this project. Special thanks to Steve Pellinacci for producing the video and to Jeff Lusby-Breault for recording the song through my sobs.
