    James Bryan is THE man. Check out his "Farewell to Long Hollow." I found some scores I'll upload just in case. Haven't played them; can't vouch for them.

    This version fits closer to the video I posted above. Reg was from Winnipeg, best I can find.

    I’ve been a fan going back to “Little Widgets.” His “embrace sucking” advice is completely on target.

    Andrew was in town last year with the trio as visiting artists for a local arts organization....

    Thanks for reposting. Don't know how I missed this. I must have been in Scotland. Oh, wait! I was.
