Sid OmastaIn March of 2015 we lost our dear friend and bandmate, Sid Omasta. Craig and Sid started playing together in 1992, when Craig and David Reddick formed their first Celtic band, Stark Raven. With Sid’s passing, we lost not only a top-notch musician, but also an extraordinary person who was a part of our family. Please click this link for a Sid Omasta Photo Tribute. In addition, the Loft Violin Shop put together a video for Sid’s memorial, which can be viewed on their website.
