Hey Alnoor, Loads of Can-Con today. Cool to be in such a diverse place on the planet. Care (or dare) to put on some Willie Nelson?! Also coming to JazzFest. It could work. Old school. Asleep at the Wheel - Willie and the Wheel. Grind them gears. Just sayin' ;^)

R: Yep, that beautiful classical / kora stuff was Constantinople. Hope to catch their show.

Peter: It's cool to have so much great stuff coming out of Canada. It's often hard to find out about it though. Maybe lack of PR$$$. As for Willie Nelson, I think only Neil is brave enough to grind the gears that hard. Then again, he might fit nicely after this pipa/lute stuff.

On Willie, not, "Chicken &%#@" !!

No problem. I wonder if that country fiddler was influenced by Stéphane Grappelli. Didn't sound that different.
