As a result of my involvement with the Austin Music Foundation, and then later, Capitol View Arts, I have been fortunate to have attended multiple songwriting workshops by Pat Pattison, and John and Joanne Braheny. The song writing community here in Austin is very close knit, and feels like a second family. Although 2 years have passed, I remember having an outstanding weekend with the Brahenys, back in July of 2010.
I was very sad to hear via this facebook group, this morning that John Braheny has passed away, from prostate cancer. He will be missed.
