Any pictures? :twisted:


The poor quality of my photography skills is legendary, and in this case exacerbated by the fact I was dancing while trying to take a picture! But here's a photo, for your amusement, less-than-stellar quality notwithstanding: GH performing "The Old Troll and the Maiden" at Medieval Times .

The big dude to my left (who you may not know) is David Murphy filling in for Walter on acoustic guitar. To my right is Rebecca James and Susan Hawkins from our string trio. The Toronto group was very different from the NEARfest band.

New Interview at Pop Thought

Post by dr.amy » Tue Apr 19, 2005 7:28 am

Hi again! :)

Just FYI, GH's Steve Babb was kind enough to do an interview with me for POP THOUGHT. It just went up at http://www.popthought.com/display_column.asp?DAID=692, FYI. I hope you enjoy!

I did enjoy reading it. Amy, Steve, thanks for taking the time to give us those insights. Without a doubt, being a businessman is the most involving part of being a musician.

Nice interview! Steve's a very enthusiastic chap and I think that's a quality sometimes overlooked when we talk about music. Having the chops is one thing but the love of just "making a joyful noise" (to borrow a phrase from a well known publication - ahem...) is something that a lot of music I've heard recently is sorely missing.

Keep flexing that wrist, Maestro!
