Program looks great, so big compliments for organizing this event to Maarten and his team !

We will be leaving Sunday afternoon so we will miss the Sunday evening program which is a shame because it looks great. Especially Flip Noorman is a performer you want to see, I have seen him on several occasions and in my view he gives a great interpretation of the work of LC.

See you all in just over a week in Gent.

Anne & I are so excited to meet all of you again. It is the 20 year anniversary of the first time we met many of you on Hydra.

We are staying at the Marriott as we have status with them and we are wondering where the Thursday night meet and greet is taking place? We arrive in Brussels on Wednesday and are staying there that night. We'll travel to Ghent on Thursday and hope to meet many folk that night.

See you soon!

Really looking forward to joining everyone for this program, Maarten. Is there no open mic this year? (May not be necessary, given our propensity for hauling out the guitars after hours.)

And yet, there are many in our LC family who first introduced themselves to us as part of the open mic sessions in past years. Some of them performed open mic at one event and were invited back as featured performers in following events -- including Martin Kubetz, whom I'm really looking forward to seeing again. Some, like Martin, perform on piano -- which is rather more difficult than a guitar to haul around to the after-hours sessions. Me? I think I'm going to bring my harmonica.

Hi Don. Looking forward to hearing from you and the many other talented players in our group in the "after hours". The official programme looks great but some of my most cherished memories, of past events and post-concert meet-ups, have been the impromptu tributes and "singalongs" with our friends. See you next week. Can't wait!

Thanks a lot, Maarten! Looking forward after all those years. Especially to meet Christophe Lebold who wrote the excellent L’homme qui voyait tomber les anges!
See you all very soon! Christine

I feel melancholy, first reading the full list of participants (I know so many) and then your wonderful program, followed by each of the comments. I KNOW what a great time you're having!! I'm so happy for all of you who are able to go this year!

It’s 4 in the morning after the last night of the event and the after party. Just popping in to say it was absolutely wonderful! Great musicians, interesting programs, fascinating walking tour, fabulous boat tour, and of course the wonderment of catching up with dear friends and making new ones! All in the beautiful city of Ghent! Too tired for details, more later.

Very much missed all those who couldn’t make it.

Time really does fly when you're having fun. It seems like you guys just got there. I wouldn't even be over the jet lag. I'm a "slow" traveler. So happy that you and Anne had a wonderful time!
