Dear Yolanda and Ric, I just listened to your beautiful music on Youtube. You guys rock... I am looking forward to hearing more of your great duets. Mixing storytelling with song in a social context makes sense. Sorry I missed your act. Steve in Oakland

Dear Yolanda and Ric - have also been watching and listening to you on YouTube - we are fellow musicians (jazz and classical in Norfolk England) - think you are absolutely stunning - such power and brilliance in your perfomances. Words just cannot express all I want to say - I can see why audiences are so moved when they experience your recitals - you deeply move me too.

Wish that you would come to England here and we could see you in "live" performance!

kindest regards - Rebekah and Keith Brown
