Greater Overbrook String Band 2016 NYD performance dedicated to John Millaway

Greater Overbrook String Band dedicated its 2016 New Year’s Day performance to lifetime member John Millaway who passed away suddenly on December 8, 2015.  John was a member of Greater Overbrook String Band for 40 years. His dedication to the organization serving in many capacities throughout his lifetime as well as the Philadelphia String Band Association and the Mummer Museum ultimately led to his induction into the String Band Hall of Fame in 1994.  John is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Maryanne , his children, John, Tim, Maryellen and Patricia who all participated in this year’s parade in his honor and 7 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. John will forever be known for his “jokes,” sense of humor and gift of song that along with his banjo and warm smile brought joy to many and would always brighten a cloudy day.
