My wife and I have enjoyed your music for twenty five years.I am an artist who paints people whose lives are affected by the sea-an artform you capture in music. I have painted Florida fishermen affected by the net ban,Evelyn Meyerson wrote a book and a one actor play, and James Slater wrote a song,"Fisherman's Prayer". State and Federal Humanities grants enabled us to take this production with actor Joel Kolker, to twelve venues across Florida.

I have a gallery in Southwest Harbor, Me. and am painting the Lobstermen of our area with the goal of having a similar collaboration here. Would you consider writing the song? If you might be interested, I will send you a CD of "Net Loss".

Thanks, Phil Steel

Drove up from Hollister to San Francisco for Gordon's concert on November 12th. Brought my oldest (25), youngest (18), and our exchange student from Poland, and we sat in the Balclutha and had a wonderful evening. Even the rockers had a good time, and my youngest and I, already fans (me for over 20 years, youngest from listening to cassettes over the last year) were entranced. Gordon's music reached deep, and his compassionate touch on the shoulder of one teary-eyed listener touched my oldest as well. And Gordon's gracious signing of a couple of CDs for those who couldn't make the trip, well all in all it was entirely worth a four hour round trip. Gordon, thanks for coming west again, hope it won't be so long until the next visit. As brother and I write to each other, "See you when the wind turns."

Re: Patricia 11/07/05

Thanks for the tip on the Spencer Theater. I sent them an inquiry but have not heard anything yet. It sounds like a lovely place for a Gordon Bok concert.

Remember to contact the Theater as fans - venues love to bring artists that their community is asking for.

Thanks again for writing with the suggestion -

All the best,

Shelly

Gordon would be perfect for the Spencer Theater here in Ruidoso, New Mexico. It's a small venue, but we've had Altan here and Pam Tillis and others and they've loved it. The acoustics are such that there isn't a bad seat in the house. Their number is 505-336-4800. Thanks for the songbook. Now I have lots of new songs to learn!

Re: Patricia 10/24/05

Denver is the closest Gordon will be to New Mexico for 2005 - but we are keeping our fingers crossed for an Arizona, New Mexico tour for Fall 2006.

If anyone has any ideas for great concert venues in the Southwest please let me know.

And be sure to call your local venue or folk club and request a Gordon Bok concert in your area!

Thanks for writing - hope you can make it to the Denver concert. (Gordon will also be teaching a "Moving Poetry toward Music" workshop in Denver on Saturday November 19th - so perhaps you can make a weekend out of it?)

Best,

Shelly

That was a great concert, Gordon, especially since you played and sang some of my favourite songs.

Thank you for taking the time to talk after the concert.

I was happily grinning for days, they tell me.

The first song I learned on my autoharp was Come by the Hills that was on the Bay of Fundy album. I was 16. I'm 45 now and still playing it (albeit a little modified for autoharp)

Is Denver the closest you'll be to New Mexico?

Re: Robert Lodder 09/20/2005

Robert,

I play in Cornell every few years, for the Cornell Folksong Club.

www.rso.cornell.edu/folksong

I'd love a chance to make some music with them (Kathy and Dave Para). Oops - Shelly (my booking person) tells me that Dave and Kathy and Ed Trickett might all be at the Turtle Hill Folk Festival in Rochester, NY next September - not too far a drive from Ithaca, eh?

Thanks, Wes - I'll ask a friend (who was in the area at the time, I think)what he remembers.

Re: J Roy Cash 08/15/2005

That week was a kick. Carol and I had never done anything like that, and we had a great time. The performing schedule was very reasonable, and we had "port days" free, so we were able to visit with friends in PEI and Halifax and Bar Harbor. Those folks are very organized, friendly, and good to work with, and they love what they're doing.

Re: Ray Millar 08/11/2005

Ray,

We get together occasionally to hang out and play a little music, but -so far- no interest in concerts or recording togther. Who knows though?

I haven't performed in U.K in a few years, but I haven't ruled it out. 'Twould be great to visit some people I haven't seen for too long...

Re: Bill Haseltine 08/11/2005

Bill,

I really doubt it's possible to "master" sailing, guitar playing or woodcarving, but I do know that the longer you work at it, the more fun it can be. I'll put those songs on my someday-write-em-out-list.

Re: Jon Bartlett - 10/14/05

I don't remember for sure. I've known it for many years. I think Geordy Jennings may have brought it back from New Foundland many years ago.

Gordon (AKA Denny),

I just opened some mail from my father that contained your year end tour schedule that includes the SF Bay area! I plan to go to either the San Francisco or Berkeley show. It looks like you have a few days after the Berkeley show before you play in Denver. Perhaps you are interested in visiting Santa Cruz where I have been hanging out for the last 30 years. Let me know if I can be of assistance while you are here. I will try not to be as shy as I was when I saw you in SF in the 80's.

See you soon,

Penny

Re: Ron Rebhuhn's Message -

We pretty much have our concert schedule worked out for Spring 2006 - and although it doesn't look like Gordon will get all the way to Long Island this time through - he WILL be playing for The Walkabout Clearwater Coffeehouse in White Plains, New York on Saturday, April 8 2006 - which isn't too far away from Nassau County. Hopefully some of you Long Island folks might be able to make it to the show!

Thanks for writing -

Shelly
