so much behind you.
I did not know that you had left
the rivers, the forests,
I did not know
I should always remember
your music in my heart.

Dunedin, New Zealand
"Thank you so much for
the beautiful music you played for us on Saturday. We
know that it set the tone for our special occasion."
tour... rearranging folk music from around the world,
this highly skilled and whimsical woman pulls and twists
exotic rhythms from the strings"
you played for our guests at the cocktail reception
was elegant and classy. And you made it simple for us,
Alison. I had no idea what pieces to select and I am
glad I left it up to you. Your choices were perfect!
You've obviously had lots of experience, as you coordinated
the timing of everything before, during and after the
reception and ceremony, seamlessly and without rehearsal."
