Today marks the four year anniversary of Noel Sayre’s passing. A luminary in the Ohio underground, Noel played violin for our beloved Black Swans.┬áHe also performed with the West Virginia and Portsmouth Symphony orchestras and worked as a guitar and violin teacher.

Sayre was in a swimming accident on July 1, 2008. After going on life support, he passed away on July 3, 2008. He was a gentle, wildly talented, (handsome) soul and is sorely missed by many.
