Letha Rodman Melchior, RIP
Letha and Dan
Musician and artist Letha Rodman Melchior lost her battle with cancer two weeks ago at age 55. Her husband, Dan Melchoir, wrote:
I am heartbroken to report that my dear, sweet wife Letha Rodman Melchior passed away today. She fought right up until the end. She was the bravest, most alive person I ever knew. I love you Leth.
As mentioned, Versus, The Roger Sisters and others were set to play Rough Trade on November 9 as a benefit for Letha. The show will continue as a memorial and fundraiser, also featuring Thalia Zedek Band, Antietam, Cynthia Nelson, and Tara Jane O’Neil (Rodan, Retsin, among others). Tickets are still available and proceeds go to surviving family members.
