Dear Roy:

This note is just to acknowledge the arrival of your CD stark ravin' for use on
our programme. It's one of the best albums of fiddle music I have
heard, and you can be sure we'll use it. We will report airplay on our weekly playlist via FOLKDJ-L, as usual.

We so enjoyed your concert, as we always do, in Nottingham. We really look forward to it every year. We were listening to one of your CDs during supper last night and thinking of you and Steve.
Will you ever play at the NH Highland Games again? Hope so! That's where my in-laws first heard you and now they come to the Nottingham concert from Franklin every year. Beth and John
