Remembering Sara Romweber

The first time I saw R.E.M. (1986) is also the first time I saw Let’s Active which was at Cameron Indoor Stadium on the campus of Duke University in Durham, NC. By that time founding member Sara Romweber was no longer a member of the band. However, I did have the good fortune of seeing her perform with them when Let’s Active reunited in 2014 as part of a benefit for the Be Loud! Sophie Foundation at Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, NC. Sara passed away at the age of 55 on March 4, 2019. If you are unfamiliar with Sara I’ve included a link below to a remembrance of her written by David Menconi for IndyWeek shortly after she passed away.
