    My heart exploded when I saw you will be stopping in next month to Maine. While attending college in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, my college love and I would camp and roam while enjoying the likes of "I don't want to have a nice day" and "laughing river." He passed away a few years later and your music has always brought back such happy memories of my time with him. Not to mention your mention of Michigan among the songs always bring me back home to the U.P. I never thought I would have the opportunity to enjoy your music live and am so excited to see you! Thank you for your gifted story telling :-)

    You played a song in a concert several years ago called "Goin Back To Goodwill". I have yet to find any trace of that online. Have you recorded it? Can I see lyrics or a video anywhere? Thank you!

    Before I play Laughin' River I introduce it as the perfect song, because it has a broken heart, the possibility of a mended heart, baseball, fishing, and a river. One woman friend of mine replied, 'not quite perfect. It doesn't have a dog in it'.

    My intro to your music was One Night, gift from my brother, it really hit me, especially Ella Mae -- at the time, we were childless and trying hard. "...today she learned 3 birds' names." That one makes me cry just *thinking* about it. HOW can you touch so deeply? And still, every time? Not long after she turned left in front of a gravel truck and left my life, In The Dark With You came along and crushed me again. Now your music of 44 & 66, Iowa Waltz, Slant 6 Mind, and Covenant, along w/ the previously mentioned, is an integral part of my spring and summer playlists. I attended college on a music scholarship, so I'm aware of the sacrifices music demands of its practitioners. Thanks for making the sacrifices, and giving us all the resulting blessings.

    A fisher sleeping in an eagle's nest; the janitor with a hidden Ph.D, the friend with an unknown global past; the man on the street in the shabby clothes — you ask for directions to your next appointment and he sees into your soul and speaks the Truth to you until you sob because it burns as it sinks in.

    Hi Greg, I'm a fan of your music since 1993 (that's when I first listened to one of your best songs, Laughing River, loved it and bought all your records straight). And my favourite song ist still Canned Goods! Is there a chance to see you perform in my country Germany? Over here there's so much bad music around so we really need you to come :-) !!!! All the best, Frank
