Remembering Warren Hellman
It would be hard to over-estimate the crucial role that Warren Hellman played in the development of the Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse. As co-chair of our New Home Committee, along with fellow musician Danny Carnahan, Warren helped us develop a clear vision for the future and offered hands-on guidance in making that vision a reality.
Warren and the Freight shared a love of traditional or roots music -- music existing below the surface, so to speak, that expresses the best aspirations of people throughout the world.
Warren was our partner in building our permanent home for presenting this music in concert as well in expanding the scope of our activities to include music instruction through classes and workshops.
We will miss him greatly.
