our new wandering minstral

Wandering Minstrel Job Filled

It sounds kind of medieval, but Connecticut has a state troubadour.Pierce Campbell will take over the job from Thomasina Levy for his two-year term in 2007.It's a tradition established in 1991 by the Connecticut General Assembly. Previous troubadours were Dennis Waring, Kevin Briody, Hugh Blumenfeld, Jeff and Synia McQuillan, Sally Rogers, Mike Kachuba, Bill Pere, Phil Rosenthal, Sandy and Caroline Paton and Tom Callinan..........

(pierce plays at the half door from time to time.)
