Thanks for sharing this with us Andrew.
It sounds like you had all had a wonderful time.
If I'm passing by for the next one, I'll drop in..... is it near Matlock? :)
Cheers

Pete, you'd be more than welcome! 8) If only it was near Matlock - I think I mentioned to you some while ago that I have spent a night in Matlock (back in the late seventies) and have fond memories of the place! :D

Cheers :)

WoW. I got lost in reverie, whilst reading your account, Andrew.

I felt gratified to see that the photo of Michael Rhoddy emanates the same gentle vibrations that he and his music do. When I saw it, I imagined hearing him. When I read your description, I thought, "Yes. That's just as I imagined."

It's great to see Jeffrey playing and singing. I wish the photo of his partner, Pam, was closer up. I've heard so many wonderful things about her. Everyone in the photos looks so interesting. You clearly had a close, intimate group for your Event. I wish I could have been there with you.

Love,
Elizabeth

Michael Rhoddy is indeed someone special - apart from his spellbinding performance capability, the other thing he does is a facetious song he's composed about LC, so I must get to hear him perform this sometime soon. 8)

It was indeed a memorable event, but the year that one (or more) of my overseas friends is present will be even more momorable, I'm sure! :D

Cheers :)
