+ Music

Everyone loves music, even economists.

I particularly love the music of Lost and Lonely, a Boston folk song band, the music of my two sons, Alex and David, and the music of my colleague, Dan Royer's son, Ian. I'll be posting Alex, and Ian's music shortly.


Here is a song, called Rust, written and sung by David. David also plays keyboard. If you want to engage David, email me at kotlikoff@gmail.com.

Lost and Lonely's lead singer is Wayne Frieden. My wife, Bridget Jourgensen, sings harmony and takes the lead on some songs. Steve Folio plays mandolin, and Isabelle Bourdonne plays base. If you want to engage them, please contact Wayne at capt.wayne1@yahoo.com.
