Porter and Stout CD Review!
« on: May 28, 2008, 09:03:20 PM »
I would like to congratulate "Porter and Stout" on the great review of their "Treasures" CD in the latest issue of Renaissance Magazine.  I was so very happy to see them getting national publicity :D  I, myself, love this CD as well and still listen to it at least twice a week.
I LOVE  You Marcus!!!!!

By the way, they also reviewed "Cast In Bronze".  It got an okay review, but they really liked "Porter and Stout".
I LOVE  You Marcus!!!!!

Yes, nice reviews.  If you check the byline, you'll see the review was written by our own GypsyWriter!  So congrats on being published, GW.  And a big Huzzah for Porter and Stout.  I love that CD, too.

Huzzah!  Well done, gentlemen!  I, too, have that CD and our very own "Pittsburgh (renfaire) Pirates" often sing me to school and back.

A big Hoozzah to P & S.  I hope they sell a bunch.  Barb does a great job of capturing the experience of the CDs she reviews.

Thanks Prof M and Terry for the very kind kudos!  I'm happy to know everyone is pleased with the positive review.  I sure enjoyed listening to the CD for weeks in preparation--it was a lot of fun.  I'm really in need of a pub sing now!

Good thing faire is just a few weeks away....

You don't have to wait that long.  Join us at the Harp & Fiddle on June 6.  Terry's singing.

Many thanks to everyone! We really appreciate your comments and your support. We are very pleased with the review and excited about the future. We are also very much looking forward to seeing all of you, both at G.L.M.F. and our own Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival.

Oh...we will have copies of all four of our CD's available at the faire!

With my love, friendship and best wishes,

I don't think a RenFaire is the right venue for the bells--but it was an amazing performance.  It just doesn't translate well to CD.

Thanks, as always, for your support and kind words!

If I ever catch kleptomaniac Claude Cooper from Cleveland who copped my clean copper clappers from the closet….

I'll clobber him!

To reclaim your clean copper clappers from the kleptomaniac called "Cleveland Claude" you must carefully cajole his cooperation!
