That's a great article, and Nicole seems to have presented the facts properly-- something that is rare to see.

Congratulations.

Very nice article, I am excited to have read more about you and your work, it is fabulous and you atta be excited. dulcimer

Kevin, I disagree with you not playing well, you and I play well enough to hear the sweet silvery sound of the instruments you so beautifully craft. I know I love my Thomas it sleek beautiful shape and that sweet, sweet sound. Best is that you made it, Thank you Kevin.

I really like your Prichard's and one day hope to be able to get one, but it needs to be JI fretting. Y'all sold me on that!

Great work Kevin, very happy for you and your success. clapper

I understand your reticence. When you do an interview you have no control over the final content and the author may not understand the subject well enough to present a good look. 

This reporter knows what she's talking about and does a nice job.
