It is with a heavy heart and yet with great hope in the life to come that we share the news that Amy's dear friend and frequent collaborator, Ruth McGinnis, passed away today at her home in Nashville, Tennessee, after a courageous 3 year battle with Ovarian cancer. She will be missed by all of us who were fortunate enough to call her friend and who had the honor of working with her. She was an incredibly gifted and accomplished violinist who graced the stage with Amy on numerous occassions. You can learn more about her music and life at her website: www.ruthmcginnis.com
Amy wrote a personal tribute to Ruth for The Tennessean, which will run in tomorrow's paper. You can read the online article here
We will post additional information about the service and donation made in lieu of flowers in the coming days.
