"Kids Busk was a wonderful event. Thank you both so much for what you do and how you do it! These are our kids, offering their art, which of course increases self-esteem and their sence of place and purpose in the world."
Rev. Karen Lipinczyk, Windsor VT
"My kids were certainly inspired by the budding musicians we saw on Saturday. They wanted to break from their regular routine of bedtime story while the two of them worked on a special, secret project. Then around 10 am on Sunday they let me see an original Mother's Day Song! Sooooooo Awesome!!"
Jean Carlan, Bradford VT
"My daughter now plays the clarinet and is in the band at school. Thanks for inspiring her!"
Judy Murray, Wells River VT
"Hi Don & Jenn, just a note to say thank you very much for playing last night! You put on a great show, and we all enjoyed it. We collected a very generous amount for the food bank too. Please thank again, all the band members. The trumpeter from the audience was a nice touch!"
Dave Richard, Corinth Cafe, Corinth VT
