Hello there Mr Bok. I have been given a copy of Seal Djiril's Hymn by a very good friend for a recent birhday present. It's the latest of many of your CD's which she has sent me, knowing that I love your music. This one is however just so beautiful I can't find the words to say how much I appreciate it. I have long had more than a passing interest in the Selkie legends and the first six tracks in particular touch a special chord in my heart. Thank you, and Ann of couse, for making such an exquisite CD. It is magical.

Hey Cap,

Thanks for the kind words - wasn't that a lovely little place to sing together? I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Bob Zentz (originator of Ramblin' Conrad's) is still touring about the world and singing a truly vast repetoire. We've been wont to do the odd tour occasionally just to spend a bit of time together catching up; he's one of the truly kind philosophers of the road.

Keep safe, Mark.

Thank You for the wonderful performance in Laurel, Maryland the other night. The first time I saw you perform was at Rambl'n Conrad's music store in Norfolk Virginia in 1980 or 81. I was attending boat building school in Norfolk and had listened to your music for several years earlier working on various boats along the coast. I am a tug captain now and managed to get off the boat the other night to see you and it was a real treat. Thanks again and I hope to see you more often rather than 25 years.

I was recently recording an old album to CD for a friend and thought to look at my older collection. I found "Bay of Fundy" and now have the beauty of that album along wiht me as I travel. A truly great collection.

I will be in the northern Vermont area around the end of the year and hope that I might listen in person if you are performing in the area.

Best Regards,

Thank you for your beautiful music. You have brought a lot of joy into my life with your singing and playing and storytelling. I hope you will come visit us in our corner of the world some day soon.

Your music is very beautiful, and its beauty is carried by me every time my name is spoken.

Was at my parent's house reading their "Sing Out" magazines and found you had a new CD out. Didn't need to read the review: if it's yours, it's gotta be good!

I just discovered this timeless music and am initially moved by "Banks of Newfoundland." In its spareness, I hear a lapping on the shore and feel the cold breezes on those fishermen. Beautiful, Gordon.

To Bill Grimley:

Thanks for that book, Bill- it's a gripping story. Have you read "10 Hours till Dawn" about the pilot boat CAN DO? The author was at the festival where I met you.

Hi Gordon, I am the fellow who gave you the book about the "PELICAN" when you were at the New Bedford Fest in 05.I just ordered 8 cassettes on your website. Did you enjoy the book? Thanks, Bill Grimley.

I just saw that Gordon will be visiting Ct. this April. Can't wait to hear him perform. I'll close my eyes and smell the salty air.

Every year we camp on Isle au Haut in May and this will surely put me in the mood.

I love hiking around the Island's mountains and beaches, my MP3 player loaded up with Gordon Bok songs. How appropriate!

Hi Gordon.

Sorry to doublepost but after reading through the earlier entries I saw that you actually read these.

That said, I just wanted to say that your music really lifts my soul.

I discovered your music some years back while backpacking on Isle au Haut. A small station out of Stonington was playing one of your songs and I immediately was drawn to it. I've been a fan since!

You must share the same affinity for Isle a Haut as myself-this May will be my tenth annual visit. I love both "Hills..." and "...Lullaby". Would love to hear either when you're down here.

Nice and interesting website.

Yours website is wery useful. Good luck!

My sister gave me a copy of "Herrings in the Bay" for Christmas. I enjoyed it - especially 'Cannery Shed'. I worked at the cannery in Southwest Harbor one summer while I was in college. My dad was commander at the Coast Guard base there... a long time ago... probably 1968 or 69. It brought back memories. Thanks, Mary

Re: Linda Oliver - You're in luck Linda. Gordon is heading to the Midwest in November 2006 - with stops in St. Louis, St.Paul, Amery Wisconsin and Michigan. Concert information should be available on the website soon - but it looks like Gordon will be playing for "The Grand River Folk Arts Society" at Grace Bible College on Saturday November 11, 2006 and "The Ark" in Ann Arbor on Thursday November 9. 2006. Hope you can make it to one of the shows.

Come back to the Mid-West!! I first heard Gordon Bok at the Fox Hollow Music Festival in Petersburg NY in 1975 (?). I was a VISTA (Domestic Peace Corps) in Rochester, NY and a friend took me to the festival. It was my first music festival, and I was blessed to hear some unforgetable musicians. The most memorable was Gordon Bok. I bought two of your albums (still have to get a new needle for my turntable, because I have not been able to play them in about 10 years). I was hooked on your music. I made a HUGE mistake two years ago when you came to the Ark in Ann Arbor. I didn't know about he concert until that Friday evening and I should have dropped everything and drove the 1-1/2 hours to A2 to see you. Please come back to Michigan. We need your music in the Mid-West. Please let me know if you have any plans for western Ontario or Michigan!

I was lucky to be given a copy of the album "The Bay Of Fundy" by a friend. It was the richest most beautiful thing i had ever heard and i started in to searching out other of Gordon's albums, 33 1/3 of course!! I still to this day get electrified goosebumps when i hear certain songs... The Golden Vanity or The Way Of Man. Thank you so much for your beautiful beautiful music.

Thank you Gordon. Tonight I listened for the first time to Gordon's song, Turning Toward the Morning played as part of Sound and Spirit radio show called Cycles by announcer Ellen Kirchner on public radion WGBH. What a moving song. I am listening to it again now on my lap top. Thank you so much for the uplifting music. I am now on Gordon's web site learning more about this moving musician and composer.
