Rick Lee, a true musical talent, passes on - KPCNews: Kpcnews

I met Rick Lee on Ocracoke Island at the Music and Storytelling Festival. He was always one of my favorite performers. He introduced me to the song, Follow the Heron Home, by Karine Polwart.

Every time I was at the festival Rick Lee would sing that song to me. I will miss him very much. I thought the least I could do was write a column about him and share him with all of you.

Please take a few moments to read the above column. I found this photo on Facebook and the piano piece is from Common Ground in Scotland. The piece is a bit long, so play it when you are writing a letter or just in need of meditation.

We all know when we share songs and stories we keep memories alive. Rick Lee, thank you for all your music. You will be missed by so many.

Until tomorrow.

Rick Lee

What a wonderful talent. You can hear the love and emotion with each note as he sends them out from the piano... So very few musicians have that level of talent, feeling and expertise...
