Hi Chris!
Nice to see you here. You have been one of my favourite musicians ever since I heard you play with the Fallen Arches at the Cambridge Folk Music Festival back in 1981, I got your LPs as soon as they were released (not the easiest thing living in Sweden pre-internet). Then you disappeared from the face of the earth, at least from my view, until I discovered your work with Maire Ni Chathasaigh which I have followed ever since. I am looking forward to your next solo effort.
Best regards Johan

Hi Chris,
Looking forward to chasing you (musically) all around SK Kamp stage again. It is one of the challenges and pleasures of my life! I guess I don't mind coming up on the short end....
Best always, Mark Cosgrove

Hi Chris,
Nice to hear from you, it has indeed been awhile since we sat up all night drinking wine. I wish I was able to come down for the weekend to see you again, but I just have too many animals to look after, and no $$ for petrol!! Maybe next time if we are still around .

Best Wishes,

Hi, Chris,
Good to hear from you after all this time. Let's see, I've got the D-28 (1969) that you will have seen me play with Nick Strutt some years back.
A 1972 D-18 that I picked up about ten years ago, and a 0000-28H (1998) that I got from Elderly Instruments about two and a half years ago.

It was great meeting you this past week at Kaufman Kamp. Your class was great and your performances even better. Now I have a lot more pickin' to do! I hope to run into you again sometime, and have a safe trip back home.

It was good listening to you at Kamp and picking with you up in Mike and Skip's rooms.

You're already my friend, of course, but would you admit it in public??

All the Best,

"Just added the Taylor K22e to my collection. Physically, it is the most beautiful guitar that I have ever seen. The lovely KOA and maple combinations are literally breathtaking. The KOA and boxwood ocean vine inlay on the fret board is striking, as…"
