how about coming to Austin, TX. It's not as hot as you think and we have air conditioning and cold beverages.

Hi Gordon,

Many years ago I went to the Fox Hollow Music Festival in Petersburg (I think) NY. It was my first music festival, and I was wandering around up in the crafts/food area when I heard this amazing voice on the loudspeakers they had mounted on the pine trees. I dropped everything and rushed down to the ampitheatre to hear you. Before that I never knew you existed, but I was hooked on your music evermore.

I am thrilled to see that Seal Djiril's Hymn is now available on CD....it was my first album, but I haven't been able to play LP albums for 10 yrs +. ..so it will be an incredible treat to hear it again!!!

Looking forward to catching you in Springfield, MA sometime...hopefully in the near future.

Best to you

Valerye

Been listening to your music for nearly 30 years. I could kick myself for missing your recent show in Maryland. When are you coming back?

Loved your music for some time now. Especially with Ed Trickett and Ann Mayo Muir - any chance of another CD?

Do you ever do concerts in the UK?

Hello Gordon,

Thanks so much - I'll reply soon.

Hope all is well.

Just read you'll be in West Hartfort October 22nd.

I'll be in Connecticut in October, meeting my 'cyber band' - I HOPE I can persuade them to come.

All the best

P.S. Get Apples in the Basket, everybody. Apples are good for you.

We love your easy style. Please come to the New York City area again. My wife and I attended a writing workshop that you held in Mass a few years ago and it rained all weekend, but the music and learning was great!

I was first introduced to Gordon's music when I was attending school in Boston in 1973. In every place I've lived since then -- Maine, Montana, and Washington -- I've introduced other people to his works. One of my current co-workers grew up in Camden and knew Gordon in "younger" days and has enjoyed being re-introduced to Gordon via concerts over the last several years in Seattle.

Do come back to the Northwest, soon! I don't get back to New England often, but do try to catch every concert from Portland, Oregon to Vancouver, BC.

I, too, have enjoyed the newest CD. Haven't missed a one over the years!

Always love a Gordon a song.

I was lifted and moved by Gordon Bok's harmonies with the adult performers and the Camden Hills Regional High School choirs during his show there in the Spring of 2005. His music moved me to tears and gave me goose bumps! (the good kind!)I look forward to hearing his works again!

God bless him, his wife and all the musicians!

I first heard Gordon when visiting my father in New York on my way back from Pakistan. It was "Turning Toward the Morning" late at night on the radio in summer 1980. It was a good welcome home. I have performed it a number of times in church over the years with much appreciation. On your west coast tour(s) I'd sure like to know if you get close to the Nevada City Grass Valley area. We get back to Maine to sail on the Issac H. Evans frequently but have missed your concerts there. Thanks for the music all these years.

I first heard Gordon on the tape "A Rogues Gallery..." and knew I'd be a fan as long as he would put recordings out. I would really enjoy having the lyrics and chords to "Peace on Earth", "Morning Dove", "Old Man's Song" and "The Parting Glass". Will Gordon be putting out a new songbook anytime soon?

I'm so excited to see you be in Encino in November. I'll be there. It's so much closer than Victoria, BC. I've been enjoying your music since the early 80's when Captain Jim Sharp of the Adventure used to sing your songs.

Seems hard to believe, but almost 30 years have passed since a friend asked me over to listen to "Peter Kagan and the Wind". Well, many a fine hour has been spent since that day listening to and learning many a fine tune, leaving most of the old Folk Legacy record inserts in tatters! One song in particular, "Brandy Tree", was a comfort song I sang to my children when they were little and had trouble getting to sleep. I really can't thank you enough for all the wonderful music you've provided. It's been a real blessing for a lot of people.

Peace and fair winds,

Dale Pirie

I've been a fan of Gordon's since the late 70s when I heard Tommy Makem do Peter Kagan and the Wind, and then discovered Bok's albums at L.L. Beans few weeks later. He has been my number one favorite ever since. He's the best "value" in music going: the voice, the guitar playing, the songwriting, the musicianship, the humor, the presence, and altogether the idea that music is a consoling force in people's lives and not just entertainment. He's done that many times for me: lifted me out of the way whatever black dogs have been chasing me. Several years ago I took my eldest daughter, now 18, to see Gordon at the First Parish Church in Newbury, Ma, to give her some first hand sense of what I had been talking about.. He did Angela, a song by Bill Gallaher about a young Native American girl who cuts off all her braids through shame of being who she was. The song brought tears to her eyes and, thus, in itself, was worth the trip and the tickets.

We have both been fans of Gordons music for many years now. We saw him in the UK at Nottingham some years ago now.

Any chance of another tour in UK?

Thank you Gordon for all of your years of amazing music. At 29 years old I'm probably one of your younger fans, but I can honestly say I've been listening to your work my whole life. (This is thanks to my parents -- I have early memories of being lulled to sleep on long car trips by "The Seal Djiril's Hymn.") And it still goes on -- my copy of "Apples in the Basket" arrived today.

One question: Sailing on Penobscot Bay a few years back, I couldn't help but wonder about the red-rock island of "Another Land Made of Water." But perhaps it doesn't matter...

Best regards,

Philip Marshall
