Hi Chris/Jody, Doing chores this morning and really enjoying the 40 minutes of uninterrupted folk--LOVE that Terry Gillespie song. Was that Shout Sister song recorded at Ottawa Grassroots Festival?

Oh, I thought that the 'Harlem' song was recorded at OGF--I'm pretty sure I heard you all singing it during your Sunday afternoon concert which I enjoyed VERY much.

Sending Laura and Paul to you from Sheenboro, QC after a very wonderful house concert last night.

Great show Jody and Chris, The Yuke movement is so like the djembe movement of a few years back. Tis a wonderful thing when so many folk turn to learning how to play an instrument. It even enhances how we listen to live and recorded music.

Hi Jody and Chris.Enjoyed the show by pod cast here in Dunedin NewZealand. Would have loved to hear it live but it was 2 am here Sunday Morning when you were on. You made me homesick for Ottawa music but I will be back for next weekend. Thank you Jody for playing one of our Shoutsister songs. I was wailing along to it here in the livingroom in Dunedin. I will miss the Tuesday night Shoutsister party but see you at Blueskies
