KentFolk News

February 2003


Have not been able to get into KentFolk, to upload new information; and Gregs computer has been down so he has not been able to sort it.
Things working again, but sorry if you have missed some good gigs as a result (mostly sold out anyway).
This is what should have been uploaded a couple of weeks ago :

Desperately busy January, but very successful in the end; must now make sure I do not drop any balls - so February Calendar will have to wait for another week-end ...
but do check-out the exceptional Monkey-Puzzle - Camine Gig coming up on Feb. 9th, see below
Still no lap-top, borrowing ...
Do send me gigs, and I will try and get them up

But do check-out - Musicians please enter your gigs here on the interactive calendar, all you have to do is register.

Many have written to me about the Monkey-Puzzle - Camine Gig - am really looking forward to it; I let Tim and Andy tell it :

Subject: Greetings from accross the pond....

Dear Mr. Webber,
I am writing to you in hopes that you will do me a favor. Jo Hook is signed to my label, Dreamscape Records ( ) and the label is getting ready to release her CD "Inside Out" in the US. She has added some new tracks to the CD as well. It will also be available for sale later this year (probably April or May) on and so that all of her British and Irish fans that can't get to her gigs can buy one.

I have added banners to her links page for both Kent and Kent I was wondering if you could add the attached banner to your website so that her fans and any one else could have the opportunity to buy Jo Hook T-Shirts, Mugs, Mouse Pads, Baseball Caps as well as items for other Dreamscape Artists. The Dreamscape Store is up and running and we have already had some sales from England.

I would like to thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

W. Christian Treiber, Pres.
