Hello My Friend;
July 17, 1999
It's been a long time since last I spoke with you, or most of you anyway.
Nice to have this chance to get reacquainted. Bar Harbor at this
time of the year is really bustling and if your heading this way I've listed
below the places you can find me. My sons, Anthony and Ramsey are
quoted and I have some news on my website. If this correspondence
is a nuisance, drop me an E-mail telling me to leave you alone. Or
a letter. Or whatever.
Ramsey, Anthony and I have been hiking and discovering caves on the
rocky coast lately. It's like we're on a mission to find caves.
I don't really care about them but Anthony and Ramsey seem to think that
they are the most incredible things. They just crawl right in to
what ever formation appears to be a cave and say "I can lay right here,
and here is my pillow, and my feet go right here, come on in, Daddy."
You can see more of Anthony and Ramey on my new website www.johntercyak.com
which is now up and runnin'. You can also view my playing schedule,
song list, places I play, newsletters, and other earth - shattering, news
- breaking items only captured on this website. Also, you, at some
time, hopefully, before the next millennium, will be able to not only select
a sound clip
to listen to but you will be able to listen to it. But you can order
CDs and Cassettes with you VISA & MASTERCARD. You can also
sign up for my newsletter and I wish all of you would get me youe E-mail
so I can send more frequent newsletters via the net. I will also
continue to send a letter version a couple of times a year.
HOW'S THAT FOR PRIORITIES!!! I promise, sound is coming to you
Soon, before the END OF Summer, I will be releasing my new Kids Collection
of tunes. It'll have many of the staples like; I'm A Little
Teapot, The Wheels On The Bus, Old Mac etc. plus Puff, Oh Suzanna
and some originals and a lot more! You will be able to preview some
of it at www.johntercyak.com. You can still purchase "Someone You
Don't Know" and "Celtic In The Courtyard" CD - $15 or Cass. - $10
plus $2 S+H per order.
This past year I have started playing in schools in Maine. For
assembly, I perform an Anthology of Fiddle Styles during which I describe
fiddle styles and techniques and then play an example of each, I finish
with a couple of tunes on the Guitar and Vocals that the kids really dig.
Then I'll do a small group of guitar students to address any issues that
they want to discuss, or a pre-determined topic. We'll work on a
tune or two and/or listening techniques. Have your school music department
get in touch if they're interested in a program like this. I have
a promo package that I can send to whomever might inquire. I also
have a page on my website; "School
