sigh... I so wish *I* had been there too!!!

Any review of these guys has to contain creative superlatives. From the first time I saw them live at Holstein's in Chicago in the mid 80s to a couple years back at Fox Valley in Illinois, they have never been anything but a total delight. My favorite concert was the one (and only, dagnabbit) they did here in Cleveland. The review in our group's newsletter contained a drawing of them singing and dancing, done by the young daughters of a friend who'd been "dragged along" only to be utterly charmed and wildly enthusiastic about them from concert time on. Best concert review we ever had of one of the best concerts.

They're almost a genre unto themselves & there are so many of us who cite them as the source of songs worked into our repertoires. And wouldn't it be GRAND to have a Roberts & Barrand song book?

Adoration and envy from afar-

Joanne in Cleveland
