As a local musician, i have seen and known these very folks for years and feel Isaiah Thompson’s article is about as encompassing as it gets. Wayne Kahn and his efforts are certainly worth writing about and Robert Lighthouse is a true artist. The fact that only one artist is singled out, ironically, is perfectly appropriate. It’s as if you’ve written about a million artists like and unlike him—as we all know, this story repeats itself continuously here and around the country. Even if nothing changes for these artists, as with Wayne Kahn’s efforts, it is certainly worth documenting.

Thank you for writing it.
