    Hello Evelyn,
    I’m really sorry to hear that you’re not well.
    I have to thank you for your books, they’ve been a real comfort over the years.

    One time, my daughter was about seven years old and we were walking back home from her piano lesson here in a small village in the South of France. It was a hot summer’s evening and she had had piano lessons before, but this time it was different. She was excited because she had just played a tune, ‘Row, row, row the boat’ I think it was. BUT at the same time her piano teacher had played the accompaniment. ‘At the same time, Dad’ she said.

    For her it was all beginning to fit together and everything was beginning to make sense.
    Anyway we got home and I showed her your first book that I’d printed from the internet.

    ‘Yes’, I said to her, ‘someone we don’t even know in America just shared it with us’. She nodded, ‘We’re so lucky’, she said.
    She opened up the pamphlet and looked down at the lines and the black dots. And she saw that it was music and that each line was a different instrument. And she saw each person playing their part, all together, and all of a sudden she understood what was possible. And her eyes just lit up.
    So Evelyn I want to thank you for that.

    Evelyn,

    I, too, am very sorry to hear you are not well. Atsunrise's post above was very touching, and I'm glad you made an impact in that young girl's life. You and I had a very nice conversation many years ago when you called me about a mid-mo mandola I had for sale at the time. Thank you for your music.

    Evelyn, I'm very sorry to hear that you are ill and need to step back from the joys of playing the mandolin and arranging and composing for it. Your work is greatly valued by many people I know. I especially enjoyed getting to visit with you some back at the CMSA in Austin. You'll be in my thoughts.

    Thank you for these Evelyn, I have used and introduced your tunes into the repertoire of the groups I play in and people have always enjoyed playing and listening to them. I am a novice arranger and appreciate the playability of your tunes as well as the harmonies -I have yet to manage both together.

    All the best.

    Evelyn, I am saddened to learn of your illness. You have given the world some wonderful gifts with your arrangements, both those you have given away for free here at the mandolin cafe as well as those beautifully bound books you sell. Thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the musical joy you have given the world.

    Some wonderful new arrangements in this latest offering. Here are my recordings of four of them, starting with two Welsh ones:

    Ton Alarch
    Caerdroia
    Steamboat Waltz
    The Jocular Constable (schottische)

    Thank you once again, Evelyn!

    Thanks for all the tunes Evelyn. I especially appreciated your help a few years back when getting some music sorted for my wee harpist friend. She’s no longer so little and off studying medicine now, but still playing in the university orchestra. You have an influence way beyond what you’re ever likely to fully appreciate. Glad you’re getting a bit of relief in the hand and arm.
