Live date at Port Elizabeth 411

Hi Linda, Chris and Matt
Thanks for the great show. The night has not only stirred beautiful memories from long ago, but reminded us that the band is alive and well and despite the unavailability of most of your material in SA you are making strides in the world arena. Special reminder to Linda about a Christmas unedited DVD. Please lets have more DVD recordings as live shows are here very rare. God bless.

Hello Linda and Chris,

Thank you for a wonderful evening and a very nice article in your Concert Diary. I shall never forget this evening for as long as I live, because I felt a kind of warmth during it. And Linda's article breathes the same sphere.
There are artists who find themselves very important and behave like that. But both of you (and Matt also) were very open to us. I was very surprised of that. You have been working with big names all over the world. Then you come in a small theatre in Nijverdal and try to do your utmost to performe as good as you can. And after the performance you have a word and a smile for everyone.That creates a good spirit and then is good working.
Again thank you for a wonderful evening. I hope we will keep in touch.Hope to meet you again.
Gerard.

Excellent Music 409

I am only 24, but I grew up with your music because my dad loved you guys way back in the 60's and 70's. Growing up in South Africa, I listened to your music all throughout my childhood, and now that I have moved to the United States, nobody knows Magna Carta! Please come to the Midwest so I can see you in concert! I still have my 2 cds, Old Masters and New Horizons, and the beautiful Songs from Wasties Orchard. I love it all and listen to it almost everyday. Thank you for making such a huge impact in my life! With love forever, Catherine Wilson

Hi Chris, Linda & Matt.

I attended your gig at Tappers (Port Elizabeth, August 2007).

What awesome memories (30 or more years of them!). Your musical genius and entertainment gifts flowed so freely that night.

I love your sublime musical arrangements and the depth of the lyrical content of your work - a lost art in the modern 'computer generation' music industry.

You are not simply a fading memory for a dying generation - your music lives, stands and conquers in this modern era, conveying a desperately important message in this day and age - the importance of people and relatonships: family, friends and most importantly - The Lord of the Ages!

God bless you all as you bless others with your gifts

Dear Andre,
Sorry it has taken so long to reply - we had a week to turn around and get to Holland where we are right now.
Thank you so much for the lovely things you have said - we really do appreciate that people bother to let us know that they have enjoyed them selves.
We love what we do and so it's nice when we are encouraged to carry on.
Love
Linda
