Subject: RE: Tommy Peoples's fiddle stolen in London
Enormous thanks to Ed Rennie for co-ordinating the Stolen Instrument Gallery and taking the trouble to phone this morning for further and better particulars.

I must say that despite his loss Tommy gave a brilliant workshop and evening performance at the Lewes Saturday Folk Club, both events being sold out. The concentration and attention in the room were almost tangible. This comment has just arrived:

'Dear Valmai
Thank you both/all for organising such an amazing gig last night. Literally took my breath away a few times. Real traditional music, taking us to some other place. I drove home without putting any other music on and had his playing going on in my head till I went to sleep around 2.30 am. On a par with hearing Paddy Canny in Miltown 1995.
best wishes

Tommy performs this evening at the Littlebourne Barn in Kent - there are tickets still available.
