  1. Just listened to you at Odd Fellows here in Floyd, VA. Bought your new CD. I realy enjoy it. You have great spiritual insight and the world needs more folks like you…Ken

  2. Aloha Ash,

    I wanted to thank you for sharing your songs. I regret not grabbing my fiddle and joining you on your island tour. Clyde said you shook the whole building in Kapaa, nearly to the ground.

    The CD you gave me unfortunately didn’t play. I wanted to hear the song about the earth having things to say…

    I hope you will read my book sometime and let me know what Aunties and Uncles you liked best. Take care,

    mo
