Thanks, Jim. I knew most of that, but I had know idea you found The Nolan Sisters. Congratulations. And thanks for sharing this information. I know it can be a bit embarassing, but it helps when folks know that they are dealing with first rate performers and writers. I have such respect for your work, most especially that which deals with the human toll paid in social issues. One of the reasons I love your work with regard to the Highland evictions, is that it educates. The Highland Evictions and the persecution of the highlanders is such an important piece of history. It is in these songs that we remember. And when we remember, it is harder to repeat. That is why the frame of reference is so important.

Congratulations on your body of work. May it be only the first act.

All the best,

Mick
