What a glorious spring and summer it has been ... so far... for the Gals and for the Stampede; and that is in no small part down to the people who have made it special for us in so many ways. Oh, yes, and thanks for all the great weather too!
Of course it is a joy to be able to sing and play and dance - we're so very lucky - but the special moments and memories are made by the people who we meet along the way. To our audiences and hosts, to the people who get up and join in (no pressure, but we love it that you do), to the strangers who step in and carry our cases (you know who you are!) and to the guys and gals in the background who make it all run smoothly, for this summer we would like to thank you for having us...
