Hey, Mark,

Always good to hear your voice! John and Tony are still doing fine music---many specialized programs for the many holidays containing wonderful folkloristic delvings into obscure musical and verbal history through folk music. It's astounding how very much they know---probably as much as Lou Killen (almost). Their presentation of a Chrismas concert---NOEL SING WE CLEAR----is a treat to say the least. At Augusta Heritage Workshops in West Virginia back in '95 they did one of their classes right before I did my LIARS CLASS (tall tales). I'd always go early to sit in on their offerings. In Chicago Aural Tradition always brought them into town for a show just about every year. Those were heady times...They still are!
