She made the music scene here in Kansas City a lovely welcoming place.

To those who loved Britt Adair, I wanted to share a few outtakes (some out of focus) from Wick and Clay’s wedding. My deepest condolences. Britt and I weren’t friends, we were just people at the same shows, but she always showed me kindness and my heart goes out to her family and close friends. Kansas City was better having her in it. Much love to you all. I will never forget her kindness and her spirt. Once she brought me a water bottle just because I was sweating profusely at her show and probably looked bright red and like an elder punk in need of -something-… her kindness and empathy was immeasurable.
