Through the years, wishes have ranged from a family portrait, a hot air balloon ride, dinner at a fancy restaurant and family reunions.

Susanna’s Kitchen March 19

Reared in the village of Greenwich in upstate New York, Ketchum hails from a family where singing and playing music was part of the daily (and nightly) diet for generations. He was exposed to country music (his father was a fan) as well as the symphonic classics and, one year, even the Newport Jazz Festival at the nearby Saratoga Performing Arts Center.
“It was just a natural thing to be intrigued with music,” explains Ketchum, who started playing drums at age nine and by 14 was gigging at local bars and taverns.
