Thanks, Peter. I find your words encouraging. I shall continue to practice - I'm working on the pentatonic scales now as well as new cords (having a hell of a time with 9ths) and learning the notes on the neck. By the way, we live on Cape Cod (Mass.). There are a number of venues that might be of interest to you. If you need some contact numbers or names, let me know. Your music would be much appreciated here. Ken B.
Lost my wife last year after 54 years. I always wante to play the guitar, 73 years young and got a guitar for Christmas and I have really had fun...Yes I see it will take a lot of time to play like you do...keep it up..you sound great..
Thank you Peter, for the invite. Definitely send me info on any upcoming concert. I have not had an opportunity to listen to your music but see great comments below. I will take a listen soon as a can.
Thanks, Peter. What beautiful music! A bit intimidating for a beginner like me, but just beautiful. How long have you been playing, and how did you get started? How did you study the instrument - through teachers, etc? My partner, Anna, just said, "It's like the guitar is singing." Precisely. Ken
Yesterday, I tried to add you as a friend at Acoustic Guitar; however, I had a problem with the computer. I really like your playing. Please add me as a friend and send me information on anytime you are playing in the Houston area. If you are looking for nice folk/Americana venue, where people actually LISTEN to the performer, then I suggest McGonigel's Mucky Duck or Anderson Fair in Houston.

My Irish roots take me to such a dear place as I listen to this beautifully arranged music. Thank you for sharing it. I hope to see you in concert one of these days. Plan a trip to Richmond, VA, please!
Hi Peter, that's my better half just come into my wee studio to order me to close up for the Night!! it's 2.30am here. I've just been doing some practicising and e-mailing the band their set listing. Yes, I'll get around to putting on our rendition, but warn all budding pickers out there to put ear protectors on. Yes your playing will last, and whilst I was working I've just gone on and got your CD collection, absolutely tireless, timeless, and poetic. There are a couple of Celtic melodies, 'Hush-Hush' otherwise known as 'mist covered mountains of home' an old pipe-tune, and 'Eriskay Love Lilt' in Scots Gaelic known as 'Vermio-o rovannoh' and sometimes referred to as 'Sad am I without Thee'. I'm sure you could pick these up, if not let me know and I'd do my best to send them to you. Anyway, must say Goodnight, I'm of to my pit, Cheers BillW.
Hi Peter, have been sitting here working out the Set for our contribution to a Charity Gig on Sunday, and guess what we always start with our rendition of 'Rose of Allandale' so I was delighted to check my mail and find your video. It's really beautiful, and I do envy your skill and artistry, and I shall play along with you in my stumbling way, trying to 'Ear read' the chords in G key. You've no idea what a thrill it is for an old stumbling arthriticky fingered box basher like me to be sent this from your list. If you are ever looking for ideas for tunes then we Scots/Irish have an endless trove for you to plunder. Put Glasgow on your future visit plans, Best Wishes Bill W.
Nice to hear from you had a quick look at your web site and I must I was very impressed with what I heard wish I could play half as good as you and I would be over the moon.
I have been playing guitar for about 18 months and I really enjoy it although I find it very hard at times but as they sat never give up.
Have you ever played in Scotland?
