In 2011 our band lost a very dear friend, Charles McCrossan (“Charlie” to his friends). But, we consider ourselves very fortunate to have known him for as long as we did, and to join him in sharing his extraordinary talent and enthusiasm for making music.
To honor Charlie, a scholarship has been established in his name, to help young musicians advance their musical aspirations.
Previous winners include Olivia DeRagon, Marley Amico. Marcella Reiter, Kathleen Kelly, Alice DeRagon (two-time winner) and Heather Ritchie.
If you would like to contribute to the Charlie Scholarship, please see any band member, or mail your donation to:
