Last Saturday marked the third anniversary of the death of Robin R. Shivers. It is true that Robin was HAAM’s founder and she was so much more than that. It’s hard to put into words the effect she had on many of us and the impact that she made on our community through her “behind the scenes” work. Her leadership, mentorship and friendship are something that I will hold dear for the rest of my life.
If you didn’t know Robin, please check out this memorial written by Margaret Moser not long after her death in 2009.
This year the City of Austin is recognizing Robin as one of six music industry professionals being inducted into the Austin Music Memorial. This honor is well deserved and we will celebrate all the inductees at a ceremony at City Hall, 301 W. Second St. on Friday, November 30th from 7-9pm.
I hope to see you there!
