John Kruth Wins ASCAP/Deems Taylor Award
Musician/author and Milwaukee expat John Kruth checked in with the Shepherd from New York via a quick e-mail to share some good news. He's won the ASCAP/Deems Taylor Award:
I won the ASCAP/Deems Taylor Award for Best Music Biography of the Year for my latest book To Lives To Fly: The Ballad of the Late, Great Townes Van Zandt published by Da Capo. Also receiving an award will be Oliver Sachs. The Awards Ceremony will be on Tues, Dec 9th at Lincoln Center and I'll be playing Townes' song "Still Looking for You" with my group that includes bassist Dave Dreiwitz of Ween, and Samantha Parton of the Be Good Tanyas.
