Posting on behalf of Rob Ickes:
At Rob's request, and in consultation with Paul Beard, we have created a website celebrating Mike Auldridge's award of a 2012 NEA National Heritage Fellowship. Rob hopes that all of you who are Mike Auldridge friends or fans will post a tribute to him on the Guest Book at this website. Time is of the essence, since Rob will be showing this to Mike shortly.
Guest Book: Please post your tribute on this page, using the comment box at the end of the page:
Thanks so much!
