Lloyd Allen In The Mix

October 23, 2007

Back in September, I remember it was the day of the Alberta Street Fair, I came to see Nancy at the end of the day and to take a few photos. When I got there a kind faced man walked up to Nancy and made a little speech. He said he was so moved by Nancy’s art. Moved by┬áthe power of the Iraq Names Project. He said he had gone home and read the little flier she hands out. He decided he needed to do something to show his appreciation. He was going to bring her a glass of water, but didn’t think that was much of a thank you. So he brought his guitar to sing her a song he written.

And wow! What a song it was. There were tears in our eyes. Neighbors gathered around and he sang another song and another.

His name is Lloyd Allen, guitarist, songwriter and band leader.

Thank you Lloyd.
