A new cd is progress? Any chance for audience requests? How about Angela?

Capt. Rob,

Forgot to tell you in my letter that when I saw your entry here, I was carving on that piece of Tupelo you sent me so long ago....it's slightly spalled and has beautiful blues running through it. Good luck on the West Coast tow.

Hi Gordon!

Nice site you have here. Thought I'd stop in and wish you a great summer 2006.

It was a true pleasure working with you when I did sound for you a few years ago at the Lincoln Street Center in Rockland. You represent your music and Maine with style and class.

To Whomever emailed me about a song-refrain, "I will not lay me down..." Please write to me again as I (apparently) sent your question into hyperspace. Or- if you see this at all, look for the song The Sailor's Prayer by Rod MacDonald of NYC or you'll find the song on the album, All Shall Be Well Again, available through our website.

Dear Mr. Bok,

I want to thank you for the wonderful concert at the Strand in Rockland last night (6/23/06). We have been listening to your recordings for 20 years or more. My wife and I were staying at Spruce Head Island for the last two weeks in celebration of our 25th anniversary. Your concert was a perfect capper to our stay and and a perfect farewell to Maine on our last evening in the state. Thank you again for the wonderful evening and lasting memory!

Dave and Kathi Latta

Mr. Bok,

I too have been listening to your music since I was a kid as my father was a fan. I can't even begin to tell you the number of times I listened to Jeremy Brown and Jeanie Teal, I've just recently found "Another Land Made of Water" I've most likely been through it 50 times already and I learn something new almost every time. Thanks for that.

Great article you've posted. I enjoyed it very much. Glad that Nik and his guitars were mentioned. I got one several years ago and its a treasure.

Who would have ever thought that we'd get this many years under our belts or so many leagues under our keels? Won't be too much longer and a half century will have passed, all with good sounds. A written letter is mailed but I had to check and see if I might be able to catch a concert without traveling over half the hemisphere. Always all the best old friend...Rob

Re: Ulla SKold:

Hi, Ulla.

While both Cindy and I sing with both Quasi-Modal Chorus! and January Men (& then some) - we haven't cobbled any duet-stuff together for a long time. She is, however, working on a new CD with Grey Larsen...I've heard a little bit of it and - as you would imagine - it's stunning. Enjoy your Spring. The Forsythia here (in Maine) are enough to knock your eyes out.

Gordon,

Your voice, your music, your storytelling, your humor and humility have captivated me since I "discovered" you shortly after moving to Maine 30-odd years ago. Your recent concert at Johnson Hall in Gardiner was a treat for ears and soul. Picked up "Apples in the Basket" there, and just ordered another copy for my mother - it seems a perfect Mothers Day gift for the daughter of an apple farmer.

Hi - was so moved when listening to PANDORA and a few of Gordon's songs were played. Ive orderd some Cds now and cant wait for them to come - Its a long was from The Shetland Islands to MAine yet the sentiments are so real and universal to people who live by the sea.

Yesterday I received a CD from an old friend who now lives in Seattle. He made it from 2 records that I had lent him many yeats ago. I put it on in my car and was so moved by the voice, the words, the mood that was evoked. It wasn't melancholia I was experiencing...I just felt as though I had been taken back to somewhere I hadn't been in a long time. My ex husband lives in Thomaston, ME. I live in Monterey, CA...I'm going to copy the CD and send it to him. We discovered it together. I love the music, I love boats and Gordon Bok is a wonderful storyteller.

Howdy Unk. 'Apples in the Basket' was going through my head full blast the entire time I was pruning the orchard, with the snow coming down all over me.

Thanks for that, and for everything else.

I listened to "Neighbors" last night - the song "One for Winter" sums up perfectly how we feel after this exceptionally long and hard winter. (When the first rain came, on March 27th, the black thrush started singing at once. All the world could breathe again.)

It strikes me how brilliant the entire CD is. Gordon, how about recording another duet album with Ms. Kallet?

Best wishes to you both,

Ulla

PS. To Ethan McCutcheon: The song is "Travelling People" by Ewan McColl, it's on "A Tune for November", and I agree it's a jewel! My own favorite from that LP is "Lowlands".

Hello Gordon, I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful concert experience last Sunday in Burlington, VT. I've grown up listening to your music because of my dad being such a fun of yours and I have always enjoyed your music. It was an honor to be invited to play your 12 string, but I had to get going (you know, the busy college life) but I just wanted to thank you for offering the opportunity. And also thanks for the info you gave me on the strings you use on that beautiful 12-string. I hope my family and I get a chance to see you perform again over the summer

Hello Mr Bok,

Looking forward to hearing your performance tomorrow in Glastonbury. Will you be taking requests? If so I'd like to ask in advance. I have an old tape thats been passed down and rerererecorded and passed down again. Tried to find the album on this site but no luck.

"People of the traveling nation"

"Your traveling days will soon be over"

Any hints? Could you please tell me the name of the album?

Have a great trip!

Ethan McCutcheon

Saw Gordon in Framingham the other night. While the hair is thinner and the head less retentive of lyrics, there's still nobody who gets more music from a guitar with just two hands. He averages a chord change a song word, I think.
