Just want to let you know that on December 20th, I was in the VA Hospital, recovering from Congestive Heart Failure and had the honor of wittnessing your performance on "5 West." You all presented a great performance for us all. You may remember my talking with you all briefly about my interest of having you all perform at Findlay, OH for the Flag City Marine Corp League Det. #1148, which I publish the newsletter for. We are planning on David Frizzell headlining the concert on April 8th.

Semper Fi! OooRaah

WOW!!! I got to hear your awesome music today at the Tibbits Opera House in Coldwater. I think you should all go down to Nashville. I lived there for three years and attended the Grand Ole Opry a couple of times but you all are just as good as what I heard down there. I hope each of you are able to continue your gift of music after you graduate. What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. I left the Opera house feeling very refreshed by your music. Thank you so much!!!
I hope you will visit Coldwater again someday.

I just got home from seeing your performance at the tibbits opera house in Coldwater.
I just wanted you to know how much I and the rest of the audience thoroughly enjoyed the great music and the high energy performance.
It is so refreshing to see young students accomplishing so much at such an early age. What a life experience! Please come back.

I really enjoyed your performance this past weekend at the Michigan Festival and Events Convention in Kalamazoo. It is fantastic to see young adults performing at such a profesional level. The members from our festival talked about you for the remainder of the weekend and are still talking about you today. Our entertainment chairperson will be in touch with your group to see if we can possibly book you for our festival. Thank you for coming to Kalamazoo and entertaining us.
I love the Fiddlers Restrung, the original, and all of you! I am thinking about trying out when I am in high school. You guys have really inspired me.

Enjoyed your performance at the 4-H fair in St. Johns. What strikes me most is the enthusiasm and energy you give your show, above and beyond the individual recognition and talent. I am inspired by the time not only the muscians devote, but that of teachers, directors, parents, and others. My praise to all of you. JB

The Saline fiddlers were awesome. What a great program. I also housed four young men. The parents and school in Saline must be doing something right. All four were polite, interesting and fun to have in my home. Thank you all for coming to Canadian Lakes. I hope you will come back.

Nancy and I enjoyed your concert at our Canadian Lakes, MI Castle very, very much. It was so nice to see such wholesome and talented teens come together for a night of great entertainment. We laughed and yes, even cried with joy at some of your antics and performances. Please bless us and come again to our community.

We enjoyed your concert at the castle. Your director has accomplished quite a lot. Thanks to him for bringing these marvelous musicians to Canadian Lakes for the concert. I wish that we had a larger stage for you to perform on. We have gone to many concerts at Interlochen and I enjoyed your show more than I did the excellent shows at Interlochen. We just saw Natalie McMasters and I am sure that she was also inspired by your performance. Great show.

I was thoroughly inspired by the group's program last night at the "Castle". The talent, energy and spirit of these young people was just stupendous. Thanks for a GREAT show. Meeting and talking with Scott's grandparents made the show a real joy. THANKS.

As a former teacher, and the mother of 5, I appreciate all of the hard work that goes into a spectacular performance. Love the way everyone smiles, moves around, shows respect for others in the group. Such talent + good looks! Playing from memory is wonderful to see. In high school I played cello for approx. 2 yrs. How I would have loved your elec. kind!! It would have been easier to haul around on the school buses, of which I took 2 each way. How proud of yourselves you must be!

I really liked the fiddling wokshop at the Warwick music festival. I've always wanted to learn how to do that. You guys rock.
Sarah Khan
The workshop was actually fun, it wasn't boring at all. There wasn't a dull moment because you were always thinking of what you were suppose to play next, and the tunes were upbeat and lifted my mood. It actually relaxed me a bit. I enjoyed it.

I had the fiddling workshop today at the Warwick music festival (high school) and I thought it was really fun! I really kind of like fiddling and I had a really good time considering I was in school on a Sunday.

I just wanted to let you know how excited the staff and students at Burger School are about your upcoming concert on the 24th. I hope you know how much it means to us that you are willing to give of your time and talent to enrich the lives of our children, many of whom would never have the opportunity to attend a concert like this.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Hi there

I listened to the fiddlers on January 15 2005 in the Cobo centre and it was the best. Keep up the good works.

I love your playing and want to invite you all this summer to Ontario, Canada.
