Amy Rohan — sister to Dave Rohan, who played drums with me in Moriarty — recruited me to sing backup vocals and play violin and acoustic mandolin on her debut CD, “Jar Full of Pennies,” which got some critical acclaim.
Here are a few tracks that I helped out on with strings and vox; Amy, of course, wrote the tunes, sang lead and played fingerstyle guitar. The songs make me think of a time in the late 1990s in Milwaukee, Wis. when I was hangin’ at Linneman’s Riverwest Inn, jamming with Amy, Moriarty (see other post), harmonica and ukelele virtuoso Lil’ Rev, and Colin O’Brien (see other post). Also, Amy’s Dad Mike Rohan, a longtime exec at Miller Beer, who died shortly before she finished her CD.
