Hello, Annie-
I guess I'm a latecomer, because I hadn't heard of Bok-Muir-Trickett until the early 1990s. After that, I really wanted to see you perform, but the three of you didn't come here to California much then. I did have one chance, when you were performing in Concord, Mass. My nephew was performing in a school play that night, and I decided that family loyalty required my attendance. It was a very good school play, and it was the only chance I've had to see my nephew perform. Still, it makes me jealous of the East Coast people who had you for so long.

I've met Gordon Bok and Ed Trickett at the annual October Getaway of the Folklore Society of Greater Washington, which is also a gathering spot for many Mudcatters. It would be nice to meet you at the Getaway some October.

I bought Notes from Across the Sea (on MP3) as soon as I saw it mentioned in the other thread, and I enjoyed it very much - but I hope we'll see a few new recordings of your singing in the future. Your recordings have introduced me to so many wonderful songs.

Welcome to Mudcat!
