Tony (I'mpellizzeri),

Did you used to play keyboards in a band primarily populated by your family?

Hmmm... Benny played drums and another family guy played lead guitar (I think). I was mainly a singer/guitar/bass guy for a while. Long time ago!

So does anyone know if Nancy Johnson is still around? I remember her from Hearthstone. She knew every song that ever was. (Or at least seemed to.)

I believe so. Nancy Johnson Barker organized the Kentucky Music Weekend at Iroquois Amphitheater for years - unfortunately the last one was in 2015 - it was the 40th! She is also the founder of the Louisville Dulcimer Society. I think she lives in Bardstown.
