Michael Dmoch

Folk musician Michael "Moose" Dmoch of Rosendale died on Sunday at Kingston's Benedictine Hospital. He was 59.

With Rebekah Lowden, he was "Redwood Moose." They had also done classical music with the Woodstock chorus Ars Choralis. The duo had also performed with Voices for Peace. He was musical director of the Rosendale Street Festival.

The photo you see here is of the couple standing in front of their burned home in Rosendale last year. Area musicians organized a fundraiser to help them in February 2007.

A memorial concert is being planned, according to family friend and soprano Danielle Woerner.
