Well, what a year it's been…hasn't it just flown by?
I've been back one week from my Europe tour - it was a fantastic trip - and my heartfelt thanks go out to all those people in Germany, Austria, and the Netherlands who came to the concerts.
Your energy and enthusiasm makes it all worthwhile.
In addition to my solo concerts, I shared stages, cars, & vans with a truly wonderful collection of people; thanks for your incredible musicianship, and all the fun & laughter Tommy Emmanuel, Adam Rafferty, Jens Kommnick, John Goldie, Peter Finger, Sandor Szabo, Zane Charron. I enjoyed each & every moment I spent with you!
Some tour pics: with Tommy Emmanuel, Bochum..."something in the way she moves..."
