The local music community was stunned and saddened to learn that musician Mike Deutsch has passed away unexpectedly at the age of 41.

Deustch, known familiarly as "Meistah," was a talented multi-instrumentalist who played in a number of local bands, including, among others, Outer Mongolia, the Black Sea Quartet and, most recently, Space Tiger.

That last band was fronted by his son, Aidan Patterson Deutsch. (See the "Stuck in Vermont" episode on that band below.)

Deutsch leaves behind his wife, Erika, and two children.

An informal memorial for Deutsch will be held at Radio Bean in Burlington on Thursday, June 13, at 8 p.m.
