Hi Alan,

I was looking to see if you'd replied about Barrelhouse but then I couldn't find any evidence of the message I thought I'd sent you! I do apologise if I didn't reply.

Barrelhouse'14: We've got 9 or 10 acts at present including Swamp Train Blues (from Switzerland!) and our very own Soulcatcher. Chickenbone John is running a 'Make & Play' workshop from 11.00am and I expect the music to start from 2.00pm until at least 9.00pm, maybe later, as a covers band that had been booked for the late session cannot now do the slot!

I really hope you will be able to join the festivities (including 18 real ales!), and players get a T-Shirt and half pint beer festival mug. How can you refuse.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi Alan, the 4 string reso looks bitchin'. I'm doing my own (1st build tho) and cheaper out on the cone - I'm using a steel dog bowl instead of a cone. I see you screwed the cone in. That's what I am doing but I've been reading that it should 'float'. Have you noticed a difference?
