  1. Fantastic, I was playing ‘try to guess the song’ with the guy sat next to me! We did get most of them right and there are a few artists there to check out – what a great idea 🙂

  2. Caught your show in Norwich, courtesy of Mr. Bob Harris! Really enjoyed it, wonderful to meet and hear a true songwriter. 🙂 smiling for days. Oh, BTW take care of your “secret weapon”, hope we hear much more fro her, wonderful to see a talented musician who can support!

    See you soon we hope.


  3. Caught your recent show in Bury St Edmunds. Thanks Gretchen & Co for a wonderful night out.

  4. Hi Gretchen – caught your show in the Mermaid in Bray last night – fantastic show – voice in great condition – Barry not too bad either! Sound was fantastic – much better than Whelan’s in March. Looking forward to your return next Spring. Safe Travelling, Ray

  5. Hi Gretchen – caught your show in the Mermaid in Bray last night – great show – your voice is in great condition – Barry not so bad either (joke!!) – sound was amazing – much better than Whelan’s in MArch. Looking forward to your return to the Mermaid next Spring (will have all the relatives there to fill the house!!) Safe travelling, Ray

  6. Hi Gretchen – I saw the show in Perth on Sunday – Hope to catch you again on my home patch – the Sage,Gateshead next year ;

  7. Hello Gretchen. Belated thanks to you and Barry for the Paris gig. You may remember my wife Kelly and I from the kinda meh Paris-Mexican food dinner we enjoyed afterwards. I mean the food was meh; the company was wonderful and even Barry the Fish was there. So this is just a word to say how delighted I am that you’ve lent your talents to the music of Mickey Newbury. I was a record shop guy in London when I first heard Frisco Mabel Joy. Then of course Elvis did the American Trilogy. What can one say? Except that your interpretations shed fresh light on these beautiful songs and I thank you. Coming back to Europe soon, I hear? Why not get in touch with Karel again and slip a little Paris gig in for those of us here who love your work very much?
