      Well the music was great. Unfortunately i was in the office at work and could not give the concert my full attention or proper volume to really enjoy it. However the transmission worked well.Someone said there was a lag btwn video and audio but it was very small and the quality was consistent and pretty good. Thanks Erryn, Carl, Eddie, Bonnie, Donna and Josh, see you in the USA this summer and Carl and Erryn in the UK next month. Cheers Richard..

Erynn Marshall and Carl Jones are old-time musicians and inspired tunesmiths from Virginia. They are married - in life and music. When they play, their instruments and voices blend like two forks of the same river. Southern song-duets and soaring fiddle, guitar, mandolin, banjo tunes comprise their diverse concert sets. They play with ease, spontaneity and vitality. While rooted in the traditional sounds of older players, this duo stays true to their own muse. Best of all, they bring the listener along with them on their musical journey.

Erynn Marshall has carved out a niche for herself as an old-time fiddler in North America and abroad. She has played for thirty-five years, performed and taught at many music camps in the US, Canada and England and learned old-time music from visiting 80-95 year-old southern fiddlers and singers. Erynn has authored the book,Music in the Air Somewhere (on West Virginia fiddle and song traditions), filmed an instructional DVD and recorded four CDs: Calico, Meet Me in the Music, Shout Monah (Haints) and Tune Tramp which features 45 traditional musicians from across North America. She has won many awards including a prestigious first place in fiddle at "Clifftop," (The Appalachian Stringband Festival), in West Virginia and was the first woman and person from outside the US to do so. Erynn lives in Galax, Virginia where she teaches and performs often with husband Carl Jones or the Bowbenders - an old-time stringband featuring Erynn, Carl, Kenny Jackson and Bobb Head.
