On Tuesday, August 17th many dear friends of ours gathered to remember our perfect, precious Margot Rose Miller. There to perform in her honor were Chris Holt, Salim Nourallah, Doug Burr and The Beaten Sea. This record is a collection of the songs they played for her, in the acoustic style in which they were played that night. My hope for this collection is for it to be an artifact of that night; the best notes we could find to sing in our attempts to continue with life without her.
