Bev,
We tried to push burningviolin to offer her services in Sligo to no avail. I'm sure you ladies would even offer to do it for free.
In fact Mary I'll have you know that I did offer my musical skills to Roscoe when I met him in Mullaghmore, but, I think he said something along the lines that the band was really working well together and the sound wouldn't have worked right....perhaps he was just being very polite to me :lol:

I didn't know that - good for you that you said something to Roscoe. Their loss - nothing like a violin playing to an Irish audience, and yours would have made it even made it more special. Just how many of LC's songs could you play along with?

wow burningviolin, I'm impressed.

Since LC has retained his original band, is it still going to be called the UHTC, or UHTC+1?

Edit - Oh wait, I just saw that it will be the 'Old Ideas Tour Band' =OITB

I'm saddened to hear of Bob Metzger's health problems and wish him a speedy recovery
I hope to be able to welcome Mitch Watkins back to Australia early 2013 (fingers crossed anyway)

I hope your health problems will not stay around long Bob! You will truely be missed but nothing is more important than your health. Please take care!

And so, another old friend joins the tour. It will be great to see Mitch and Leonard united once again.
