Our beloved Davey Williams left the planet with the waning of the blood moon eclipse on April 6 at approximately 10 p.m. A brilliant guitarist, writer, and master of improvisational music, Davey was born to view the world in his surrealist lens. over the last 3 years his journey with spinal cancer has been more than challenging. Throughout the duration he felt the urgency to persevere in collecting his near one thousand solo guitar tracks and to write his memoirs as well as filling notebooks with perspectives through his drawings. We are calling on friends and community to help us absolve personal debts and medical expenses of his incapacitating illness. Moreover, once this is accomplished, your donation will go toward the publishing of his last solo guitar pieces, a portion of his musical archive, and the publishing of his most recent book of drawings and memoirs. Reach deep into your heart and give generously as we ask all who remember and seek to honor him, let us celebrate him, his contribution to the world of improvised music and unique wisdom by donating to the Davey Williams Fund as he is soaring with the stars!

Tonight we learned there numerous sound files and live recordings that are bursting forth like new springs of life, they need to be published, so we have increased the amount of the goal. Neko and Davey's personal expenses will be met, and then his artistry will be made celebrated through recording releases and the publication of his memoir as the new book, that he had recently written.
