We are sad to learn of the passing of Bill Gossman of The Green Lake Bluegrass Band. Not only was he a talented musician and artist, he also was the mayor of New London, Minnesota, and an all-around cool person. Bill passed Tuesday after a 5 month battle with cancer.

His laid-back optimism will be missed by many. RWAC wishes love and peace to his friends and family.
