Jamie McGuinn

I am sorry to inform you all that Jamie McGuinn of Boone, NC (right) passed away this week in a traffic accident in Avery Co, NC. He was 23 years old.

He was a good friend, musician, singer, and chef. He acted on what he believed and spoke his mind. He lived the principles that he asked others to follow. His jokes, laughter, and fun loving nature could always lighten the heaviest mood. He deeply cared about the people and landscape of his Appalachian homeland, and spent the last few years actively defending them.

I will miss him a lot.

– Benji Burrell
