Hello Blu & Kelly,
Just a note to thank you for all the help at the writer’s festival. Also, I think your new CD is great. Very honest and real. Your version of Billy is inspiring, I love it. Sounds like a proper folk song and will stand the test of time. Take care you two and have a great summer. Gary ……………………….Gary Fjellgaard
