Eliot Grasso on radio in US
I’m surprised Emily hasn’t mentioned this, but I guess she’s been a bit pre-occupied with other things lately. I just found out that her cousin (IIRC) Eliot Grasso, a great young piper from Baltimore, will be featured on the American public radio program "A Prairie Home Companion" broadcast nationally across the US this coming Saturday. He’s one of (I think) six finalists in the Talent from Twelve to Twenty contest. That’s age 12 to age 20, so if you ask me he ought to win for sure. I first met him about 6 or 7 years ago (when he was 12 or 13, I guess) and he was already brilliant then. Also he’s a great kid (although not really a kid any more.) So give the show a listen if you can. It’s on live in many US cities at 6 pm Eastern time on Saturday. Check your local NPR listings. Go Eliot!
