Hey, just thought you should know how inept you've made all of your fellow high school grads feel. We heard about the album the other week and checked it out in MVC. As of yet, i believe you are the only one in our year who's released an album, especially one so succesful (mine will no doubt be out in good time providing trading standards let me market it as "music"). So this is kinda a hello and congrats from all the guys from shrews sixth form, also turns out my friend's dad is a big fan. Anyway hope your well and try not to forget your extremely talented fellow graphics student. Havent heard your album play but i know your good, well done,

Hello Harriet, I just heard one of your songs (Some People Cry it is named) on the Dutch (national) radio. It was so beautiful, you really should come to Belgium and play for all the people! Thanks for making such nice music!

Greets, Geert from Belgium ( a new fan of you :-) )

Hi Harriet, It was a pleasure to do the sound for you at the Red Lion on Sat. 10.04.04. It's really great to see a wonderful and enthusiastic talent. Carry on the good work and enjoy it.

Most of my life I have actually hated accordian music. I guess it is because I grew up with Lawrence Welk and I don't like polkas. I have been listening to Celtic music for years though, and I noticed that the accordian sounded rather good playing Celtic. Then I bought Phil's CD "Palamino Waltz" and my attitude was completely changed! I have collected a lot of accordian Celtic music since then, and I love my newest addition "Eyes Wide Open."

I had trouble getting past the first cut. "Philly Boy" is so beautiful I still have to listen to the set twice before moving on. I like your style of playing. You add more harmony than most other players, putting a strong feeling of emotion into the pieces. Your accordian has a beautiful tone, and its intonation is excellent. The selections are wonderful, including your own works. And you played "Harmonium!" What a wonderful piece. I first heard it on "Celtic Fiddle Festival" and I have collected several versions since then. Someday, I might try to pick it out and play it on the piano. When you see Phil again, tell him I've long been a fan, and of course I miss Johnny C too.

P.S. Heard you first on RadioCelt.com. Thank you Michael Londra!

Harriet, I haven't yet bought a copy of your CD but after reading all the great reviews I certainly will. I only read about you in the Shropshire Star last week. It's great to see soemone so young, in England, passionately playing folk. I'm 28 and have only been playing whistles for a couple of years. I was lucky enough to live in Galway in Ireland for 18 months and had lessons with Mary Bergin who you may have heard of. Keep up the great work and may your musical career be a long and succesful one.

We really enjoyed your performance at the Shrewsbury Music Hall on Thursday 1st April 2004 and we like the Website. You played well, the jokes were good and most of all you have a great voice. So I can only reiterate what Tony Bates (March 2004 Newsletter) said "all I request is more vocals next time!". There must be some celtic songs that would suit your style of singing. Look forward to seeing you again soon.

Dear Harriet, I have recently purchased your first CD, its brilliant. I also found the cover Info with it very interesting. I saw you perform at Warwick Folk festival and was absolutly amazed at your talent. I hope to be there again this year but was sorry to see that you are not going to be there. I will be tracking where you are performing and hope to see you again. In the mean time I cant wait for your next CD. Wishing you all the best for the future.

Hi there, Congratulations on the CD! I finally got round to getting a copy and I listened to it twice while cooking and eating last night before heading off to Banbury to see Keith Donnelly do a night of mostly serious songs (gasp!). It's a fantastic album, great mix of songs and tunes, wonderful production and amazing playing and singing! A stunning debut! When's the next one coming out!? Take care and thanks for producing such a fab album.

Great to see you in Cheltenham, Harriet - really nice to hear how amazing and varied your playing is. You have a lovely, expressive singing voice. Your stage presence was relaxed, too - you kept us well entertained and enjoying the performance. All credit to your Mum for driving you around and supporting you so well! I hope you do make it back to Burwell some time soon to see all of us who remember you from then.

Best wishes, Alex.
