Joe Shannon, founder of the High Country’s Mountain Home Music
concert series, has died.
According to MHM board member Karen James, Shannon succumbed to illness during the morning hours of Tuesday, May 13.
Shannon founded Mountain Home Music 20 years ago and resigned earlier this year, due to health issues. He’d moved to Florida in March to spend his final days with his family, James said.
A memorial service will be held two weeks from now in Florida, and a celebration of life, to be coordinated by Cynthia Banks of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, will be held in Boone in the near future.
