Subject: RE: Ron Trueman Border
A powerful presence as a performer, an ability to handle, with delicacy and sympathy, subjects that most would shy away from, and a generosity of spirit in allowing, nay encouraging, others to perform his material makes Ron a very special person in my estimation.

One of his songs resides on my own CD, and very proud I am to have been able to record it.

I feel that mention should also be made of Ron's band, "Perfect Strangers", an amalgamation of some of the best local musical talent to be found in the county, mayhap in the country. If you can get to one of their gigs, you're in for a treat.

Incidentally, don't worry too much about Ron's accent, which is not often American, but when a man writes a seriously empathetic song about life behind US prison bars, it's gonna sound a bit odd in Cockney or Geordie, woudn't you say?
