On behalf of the Board of the Guild, and the performers of the evening: MANY THANKS for being a part of the portland Storytellers' Guild April performance: Tax Relief. Your music added a wonderful dimension to the venue and setting from the moment people came in until they were gone. It really was a special extra for our evening.
And from me --- even MORE THANKS for making it possible for me to open the program with a lively and fun rendition of a song that encapsulated the more immediate theme of tax relief so well. Lots of people have told me that they really enjoyed that addition to the usually expected fare at a story telling event. And I certainly had a lot of fun doing that with your accompaniment; I never would have managed anything 1/20th as delightful without you.
