Super duper. Thanks dear one. Grateful for these today. May you have rest and ease. Hug Tilly for me.

you always find the best music!! thank you... love all of these!

Wailing Jennys, Rising Appalachia, and all the others you have given here, wow. I just love this music. My music has been dormant for a while and perhaps singing along with these will rouse the muse. Thank you Teri!

Lovely to see Rising Appalachia again, and thank you Terri, for introducing me to them years ago, they are marvellous!

Beautiful!
