    Well met! Per your request, I've come here to admit I'm the reprobate responsible for the "dead possum" verse of Stolichnaya during last night's (Sat, 22 Apr 2017) Mega Set at Sherwood. Thanks for all the great music, fun and kind words. Looking forward to seeing you next season, or perhaps another show before then.

    Just wanted to say thank you for the two CD's we bought last week. Love them! We've been fans since it was E Muzeki. From that time we saw them at the Tampa Renn Faire in 2007, we've (my wife also) kept up with ya's ever since. Sure hope you guys can make it out to the SC area sometime soon. Love to see ya!

    Thanks for coming to the Great Lakes Medieval Faire. Roxanne was wonderful and I hope that next year you will return and bring some more of the band. You are a worthy musical successor to my friend Owain Phyfe, who is greatly missed.

    I love the way W&A weaves in the history and meaning of the music in their shows. When they came to my town it was a truely inspiring show. I usually travel far to see them but having them come to my small town was surreal and everyone was amazed. Loved it!

Performing music for a living is an expensive endeavor. Even given steady gigs and taking into consideration personal sacrifices we musicians make to keep performing, between equipment repairs, instrument repair and acquisition, travel, and the cost of producing recordings, we often find ourselves coming up short. We want to thank all of the fine folks who have donated to our project over the years. You've made a huge difference in our lives and helped us to be able to continue creating and playing music full time.
