Charlie’s Status

Our dear friend, Black Rose co-founder Charlie Hall, is in the last stage of his life after a valiant effort to live longer and well, share love and laughter with family and friends, and play his wonderful music, all while battling brain cancer. Since 1994 when Charlie and friends Hope Grietzer and Murry Stewart came up with the idea of an “open stage” in the historic log Black Forest Community Center, thousands of music lovers of all ages have been inspired, picked up an instrument, and enjoyed the wit and musical brilliance of Charlie and his teaching.

Please share your memories and good wishes on Facebook for Charlie and his wife, Marianne Danehy.
