    Just dug out an album ‘Kid on the Mountain’ which you signed sometime way back (80’s/90’s?) at a concert in Glenfinnan House Hotel. I remember it was a great night but can’t remember who you shared the double bill with? You signed the album- all the best ‘Tchumbley’ – my nickname- and you commented ‘ what sort of a name is that?’ to which I replied ‘What sort of a name is Duck?’ Good times. All the best through these hard times.

      Goodness, what an amazing night that was, honestly one of the most memorable gigs I ever played! And not just the gig itself but the mad bash afterwards and the whole visit at the Hotel, through to Charlie cooking us a big breakfast the next day and playing tunes on his fiddle while we ate. By “we” I mean John Renbourn and myself. I do even remember the exchange involving our nicknames, now that you have reminded me. This was the last gig John and I ever played together in Scotland, and we barely survived that tour – I think we must have been determined to sample every malt made in the Highlands! And it would have been right around 1990, maybe a year on either side of that.

      Thanks for the memory!

    Howdy Duck!

    I have GOT to tell you I accidentally bought one of your records thinking it was something else, but holy cow am I glad that it is what it is! I snagged the Les blues du Richmond demos & outtakes album and Every. Single. Song. is exactly what I want to hear. Fantastic! So here I am sending greetings and a big thank you from good ol’ Hiram, Georgia

      Thanks for the kind words, Kyndall, and please excuse the slow reply. Things have gotten kind of fraught over here, and everywhere else including where you are, I imagine.

      Take care of yourself and hang in there!
