CD We Need to Sing

This is a collection of favorite songs by Patsy Thompson - the better half of Tony Latimer and the songbird of the sensational folk and Chantey pair. Patsy played these songs with dear friends on the night of Sept 11th - it was their way of wrapping their arms around a world in sorrow. Uplifting stories in song and memories from childhood,of friends gone on, and of our young lovers and golden lovers of later years. I play this in the afternoon with tea and cookies. Your purchase supports this fabulous artist and brings her and Tony back to PT and home concerts with all of us sharing a rollicking great time!

This is the companion DVD to Basic Knots-Book 1 in the Working Rope Series. A great learning tool.

The photographer shot Brion's hands from over Brion's shoulder - so when you look at the screen - your hands could do exactly what Brion's hands do.
