    Hi There,

    Just found your site today and I wanted to turn you onto a pedal steel player named Gordon Stone. I am happy to send you a collection of his music to listen to and would love to get feedback from you!
    He just finished a pedal steel dominated CD called “Night Shade” he recrded it at Phish’s barn in Vermont. He has been playing for almost 35 years, won an Emmy for work on public television and I am trying to share his music with folks that are interested. Send me your address and I will get you a complete package.

    Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you!

    I listened to Tommy play on the Tuesday
    night. He is one of the best I have heard.
    You just can’t beat those good ole Bladen
    County boys. His pop-in-law Rev. Neil
    Smith has taught me a lot about music.
    Keep up the good work.
