Re: A shameless spam and call for help

Man I will do what I can to let everybody know Im on there too who's 
Grandma isn't now?  Right? 
Link up on my friend addy and be sure to check out another very good 
aquaintance I have jammed
with in www.wvfest.com aka Winfield Walnut Valley International Finger and 
Flatpickin, violin,
mandolin, dulcimers of all colors etc. etc. Championships.  He and the 
studio is actually right
there in Vancouver Canada!   www.donalder.com and on myspace Daniel 
Albertini.  My page is growing
and one music video (The One) and clips of indie films I have had tiny 
acting parts and
appearances in.  There has been numerous people from Canada coming to the
www.barebonesfilmfestivals.com as well as Jean Savoie amazing bassplayer 
and fellow luthier up
there too.  I last heard he was playing on cruize ships making boo koo 
bucks but bored miserable
for the most part.  I gotta look him up again maybe he is on myspace as 
well?  My last amazingly
talented singer I played for Amanda Rainey lived in Vancouver a good part 
of her life and visits
often whenever she can, she is in California now.  I could not possibly 
remember all of the humans
up there I have met.  Mr C.G.P. (certified guitar player) himself Tommy 
Emmanuel has been up there
touring as well.  Link up bro!  Have Fun and the best of luck to you and 
your bandmates.  I still
have a lot of work to do and look forward to the ride ahead maybe we will 
hook up some time?
