If you are lucky enough to both live long enough and have enough wonderful friends; you will also – if only eventually - be unlucky enough to know the loss of a Special Person. Mark Witter was one of our Special People - a fine man and treasured coworker. His sudden death stunned our industry. With all manner of support (most notably from Cascade Joinery) Mark’s love of the blues in general, and blues harmonica in particular, is being honored with a new band shell in Bellingham, Washington. The lovely winged-roof shelter incorporates a subtle allusion to harmonicae. The elaborate cedar posts are a subtle allusion to Mark -- large and all-heart. We are proud, to have contributed to this sweet project; with some lucre, but even more with some heartfelt design input.
