Health, Games, Vocal Cords & more
I trust this finds you well and enjoying the summer. For me, this summer is similar to last year’s, as I came down with another pressure ulcer. Fortunately we caught it in time and I only had to spend five weeks in bed as compared to 10 weeks last year. All in all, my spirits have been fine and I look forward to attending the St. Louis Highland Games at the end of September as well as the Stone Mountain Highland Games in Atlanta the third weekend of October. Kindly let me know if you’re planning to attend the St. Louis Highland Games. I’d love to see you there.
Last Thursday I had an appointment with a doctor at Washington University regarding my vocal cords. The result was, that I am having surgery on my left vocal cord. This is the same vocal cord that I had surgery on last August. The surgery is scheduled for September 4, one week from this coming Thursday.
For your information, my CDs will be sold at the Pleasanton Highland Games in California this Labor Day. The location of my sales tent will be at the Glenfinnan stage, where I’d performed for many years. Look for my sales table at Estes Park, Colorado on the following weekend. You’ll find my location at the tent where I performed; now my good friend Seamus Kennedy entertains there. The Seaside Highland Games, held the second weekend of October in Ventura California, is one of my favorite events. You’ll find that my CDs will be available for purchase by the main stage. I could surely use a couple of folks to volunteer at my sales tables at Estes Park and Ventura. If you’re interested in this most prestigious position, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at (615) 390-9593.
The Scotsman CD has been out of stock. But I’m pleased to let you know that the CD is presently in manufacturing, and will be available for purchase in 10 days. This CD has been very popular over the years. My last studio CD, recorded in Nashville is entitled “From The Sea To The Shore“. It was a wonderful experience to have some of the top Nashville studio musicians play with me on this production. I’m very proud of this CD and I highly recommend it for your collection.
As always, thank you for your love and support. It means so much to me.
