Thanks for that, I couldn't make it to Lough Gur myself, but I have to say it was very enjoyable interviewing Jerry, a pure gentleman and glad his show went down so well.

I saw Jerry Harmon perform at home in America last month just after Christmas. I was able to get in a few words with him. He truly is a gentleman. He puts on an awesome show and there are not any artist these days left that are truly authentic and not trying to be on cmt as a main goal in life. Jerry has writen songs for other artist, is the only direct lineage of the man who started the JackTales in America who keeps that tradition alive. He has acomplished much as a performer, and is a very humble and modest man. He is a true gentleman in every sense of the word. I also want to inform you I emailed his booking contact at appartistagency@yahoo.com and found out he is touring Ireland again this October for sure, perhaps in May, and I know he is going to be in England. I know here in America he is a legacy to those of us who appreciate a true artist who hasn't sold out, and Ricky Skaggs says the same thing about him That says a lot. I appreciate the stations such as yours who take time to share the artist like Jerry Harmon,, Phyllis Cardoza pmcardoza@yahoo.com

I was in Bath England in 2009 and saw Jerry perform. Man what a treat, for I had never heard him. He is an awesome guitarist, singer, storyteller. He is the complete package. He kept about 1500 people on the edge of our seats for the entire performance. I suggest anyone that hears where he is playing to go see the show. Amazing performer.
