Lem Genovese, our favorite Vietnam veteran singer/songwriter, has just updated his excellent website, wwwyankeemedicrecords.com The site now offers videos and free down-loadable music of Genevese’s excellent folk-tinged tunes. There also are links to the “story behind the song, ” a biography, reviews, and tour dates.
Speaking of which, Genovese will do a benefit concert on Friday, April 24, at The Coffee House , the famed Milwaukee venue, at 631 North 19th Street, which was founded in 1967 and is one of the longest-running non-profit coffee houses in the nation.
“A group called Guitars for Vets, co-founded by Vietnam veteran Dan Van Buskirk, ” Genovese told us, “provides free guitar lessons to veterans. If they stick with the lessons, they receive a free guitar after ten sessions.”
