    Comments from some schools and libraries:

    "Many, many thanks to you, Mary and Tim for a most enjoyable evening last night. Your program was everything I'd hoped for and more. We attracted a large and diverse audience. A comment from an evaluation form: "Wow! What fun! The high-quality music and stories were totally enjoyable.""
    -- Ellen Knowlton, Merrimack Public Library

    "Mary and Ellen both exude a warmth and energy that is most apparent, but what is most remarkable is their ability to relate their craft to the students' study of Colonial New Hampshire. Students and teachers truly enjoyed this day. Ellen and Mary brought history alive through their art form."
    -- Kate DePalo, music teacher; Marianne Dlemarczyk, Enrichment Coordinator; DJ Bake School, Kingston, NH

    "Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You are a wonderful fiddler! We loved your music!"
    -- Gail Ferraro, Exeter Public Library
