I'm having a lovely evening playing through Book 1 of Ho-Ro-Gheallaidh. I have all the Ho-Ro's and Fiddle Music of the Scottish Highlands, and over here in Brooklyn NY, they're all just such a wonderful resource for the ongoing session we are running at Iona , a pub in Williamsburg Brooklyn. I just wanted to thank you for all the hard work in putting them together and how appreciated they are by me and our group.

Thanks and best wishes
