Hi Graham and Camille,
Just was listening to an old tape of yours! Was getting nostalgaic and wanted to send an email to say hello. My Brit wife Janina and I are still in Danville,Vt. Janina owns a flat in St Ives Cornwall. If you ever want to rent it some day be happy to accommodate you. Remember all the fun times at the Dome!
Graham, enjoyed the New Inn session last week- thought it was one of the best and it was good to meet and hear Camille too. Here is a link to an amusing set of subtitles over the movie clip. Hope it works. I’ve got my ticket for the May 3rd end of season party, front row of SK2 should be fun- just need a couple of wins now to go up as champions. I’m in France this w/e so will not see the QPR match, give em a shout from Vermont for me! Cheers Tim
I hope your summer is going really well. We so enjoyed you playing at SILO and I wonder how your schedule is looking for the rest of the year. We would love to have you back here.
Let me know.
Hi Anne Marie,
I hope you and the company are doing well.
We were talking about great venues last night and wondered whether you still have occasional music at the Silo?
We would love to play for you again!!
Your concert in Brandon last evening was fabulous! Looking forward to seeing you again!
Thanks Bill, we really enjoyed ourselves and hope the recording came out well!

On the Eve of St. Patrick’s Day 2018 the joyful sounds of your “live 2017” CD are carrying my spirits sky-high. How thrilling to hear old pal Claudine’s voice . . . and that banjo, ringing clear as ever it did up the hollows of these Appalachian Mountains. It’s wonderful to hear Gypsy Reel finally(!) and to know what a perfect your great talents are with those of my friend.
Editor: Please make that “…perfect fit your great …” Kudos, too, to Rod for a superb engineering job.
Gypsy Reel played at a 50th birthday party for a client of mine (I’m a concierge and had hired Gypsy Reel) and I can’t tell you how pleased the client was with the music and demeaner of the whole group! They made me look like a rock star (they definitely had my toes a tappin!) !!
