Congrats to Jed Hilly '79 - ED of the Americana Music Association

Fellow SHSers may be interested to read an article on my brother Jed Hilly (SHS class of '79) that just came out in the March issue of Nashville Arts Magazine.

I thought I would mention that he is a graduate of the SHS Alternative School, and also Hampshire College.   I am proud and feel privileged  to be the sister of the Executive Director of the Americana Music Association. To see my brother in action I get to witness that which we were working toward back in the 70's with the creation of the "A School"-preparing students for creative careers in  areas they were  passionate about. Plus I have been able to hear some really amazing artists playing the most awesome music!
Also in the article you will see a photograph of Jed with Roseanne Cash and her husband and Producer John Levanthal, also an SHS grad.
