Chris, I've enjoyed your articles for a long time. I especially appreciated the one about your recovering. I hope all is still going well.

Yup, Chris. We've tapped the next person on the list - it's a young guy who wants to play the banjo as well as Ralph Stanley. Thanks to your contribution as well as others, we're sending six students to kamp this year. Three to flatpicking, one to mandolin, and two to bluegrass banjo.

Hey Bud, good to "see you around' this place. Will you be at Kamp again this year?

I found the most magnificent old book store that you'd find magical; I need to tell you all about it, so plan on lunch one day!

Hi, Chris, Good to see you here... well I guess I would, wouldn't I?

I sure enjoyed the David Grier concert you put together in Marshalltown. I'll hope for more such concerts in the future.

Oh, and I finally took the time to subscribe.

Castle Ridge is playing at Rock Creek State Park this Friday night (6/27). We'd appreciate if you'd let people know.

- Mark

Aura Lee - Hatlee Band - Aura Lee instrumental video with lyrics

"Very nice, clean, rendition of this old civil war song, and the tone of your guitars is great! (You know that Elvis recorded this in the 1950's as "Love Me Tender?")  Wish I had  ason to pick with!"

"This has been my favorite flatpicking/fiddle sine I first heard Doc Watson do it 55 years ago! Your rendition is more than excellent! Guess I'll just have to keep practicing until I get it right!"
