Hope you have a great day with Adam and Beth tomorrow! Was thinking of you recently after I hosted a Quebecois house dance last Friday with Lisa Ornstein and friends providing the music. One of the friends was clawhammer player Jerry Gallaher who used to be in the Hurricane Ridge Runners 30 years ago. One of these days I'm going to have to make time to pick up some of that repertoire! Anyway, we had a great time. Hope you do, too!
