Hi Louis.  I'd love to pick!  I'm not sure if I'll be at Darrington this year.  Our band didn't get booked because we're not Trad enough! However, if we don't have anything else booked, I would love to go!

I've gone vegan and may look at gluten free as well. My daughter has gone that route - it seems to becoming acknowledged as a good health threat. Looking forward to picking with you sometime in 2012!

Louis,

Good to hear from you, hope you're well.

Hoping to get down to the ANZA this winter.

Maybe see you there or at Wintergrass.

Best of the holiday season to you.

Perry

Bob Mesher replied to Bob Cron's discussion Norman's Preferences
"All I remember was when he had a Martin with flush frets on it (i.e. just markers for a guitar that was designed for slide only) and he had it converted for flat picking. "
