Hello members of Magna Carta,

No sign of our matchboxes on your site, unfortunately. I hope you didn't loose them. Greetings and don't forget to have a look at www.underseas.nl. I wish everybody all the best.

Actually the matches have been just great, we have been able to light the candles in our cabin and it now looks very cosy. I'm sorry you were not mentioned in the diary - but you have now added your site to the guestbook, so I don't feel too bad about it. Keep on rockin'.

Love, Linda

't Voorhuys, Emmeloord - 29th October 137

Hi Linda, Chris and Matt(?),

(I'm sorry but didn't quite got the name of the fabulous (electric) violin and mandolin player, guess it's Matt...)

Along with a friend of mine (Hans) we wanted to visit a concert and checked out 'who was playing' at the end of October. And there all of a sudden 'Magna Carta' was on the list.

One of my (all time) favorits is still 'The Airport Song' so when I saw you were touring through Holland, the decision was made very easily. Also Hans' wife is still fan of MC so she would love to come along. So the two of us went to Emmeloord along with our wife and girlfriend.

It was surprizing to see that the band was reduced to just the two of you (Linda and Chris) but on the other hand, it also made is somewhat special. Especially the contribution of Matt(?) was great. I simply loved the Irish sound created by two guitars and the mandolin and sometimes it touched my deep inside.

I agree with you Linda, that the stage was somewhat higher in regards to the audience seats as 'usual'. But IMHO the distance between MC and the audience was not measurable.

Sitting in the lazy chairs at a lazy sunday afternoon, it was a nice surprize to hear you play and to feel the moods of the old Magna Carta appearing again. Although the reduction of the band (members) could be noticed and modified the 'mood' of the old MC, it was a nice concert and I still am glad I've been there!

(In Emmeloord of all places, haha)

The only disappointment for me was tha you didn't play 'The Airport Song', I hoped it would be played in the 'encore' but... it wasn't.

Anyhow, it was great to see you playing again and hope to hear from you again still in 2030! :-)

Kind regards,
Nick

Dear Nick,
I'm really glad that you enjoyed the concert but am sorry that you missed seeing more people on stage. Magna Carta started as three people and we love to play this way, it's more intimate.

We don't always play 'Airport Song' - there is the risk that people think we are trading on past glories. We have played it at some concerts, but only when we received a specific request....maybe we should reconsider this one.

Thank you for bothering to get in touch - it's helpful to know what people think.
Love
Linda

Thank you for a Great Night! 136

Sorry for the late reaction, but I just saw Chris again in our theatre so it's now or never. I still want to thank you guyes for a wonderful night in our theatre (27-10'06). I'll allways remember you as the sweetest musicians, I'll hope to be as nice as you are when I've got the same age and hopefully I'll be still playing arround somewhere maybe even in England! Lots of love from Stefan and goodluck with the tour!

Thanks for that - you made us feel very welcome. If you're in England let us know - but if you're as old as we are now - you'd better search the old people's homes first. - Love, Linda
