Amelia's Teisha Helgerson Tribute

Earlier this year, friends of Teisha's dropped by her house over 7 days, in search of inspiration. The idea was to help her finish the album she couldn't. Now, there's CARRY ON.
TEISHA AND FRIENDS: CARRY ON
Teisha's friends made music from lyrics found on her shelves, and melodies recorded on her phone. A Tribute to the Remarkableness of Teisha! CD Release Party, Fundraiser and Dessert Potluck is on for Thursday, August 23, 6:30 PM at Kruger's Farm on Sauvie Island.
