Open Mike nights at the Point Defiance Cafe 1988. I still hear the music in my head. I still sing Rose Tatoo. Thank you so much, you gave music to me when I needed it the most. Health and happiness to you.

Saw you on Vashon in November for the first time. You introduced me to Utah Phillip's song Orphan Train. I went home singing this song and my younger daughter grabbed this story as her National History Day project. This weekend she placed 2nd in WA in the historical paper category and as a result will be attending National History Day in College Park, MD next month. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi Kat - Went to "SPACE" in Evanston last night and heard the "Sons of the Never Wrong." Been following them for 22 years -- about as long as I've known you. my son, the Hog-Eye kid, bought me tickets to this concert for my birthday ( won't say which one.) I spoke to Sue afterward and she told me you are well and happy. I am thrilled for you as I have thought of you so many times since you left this area. Just wanted to tell you that I am still playing and miss your teaching so much. Keep in touch if you can. Love to you. Be well -- Judy

Hi Kat,
I've never heard you sing or play the guitar (my loss) but I'm a first cousin of yours. Matt and I are just a few months apart in age and I remember him. My husband and I live in Mission Viejo, California. My dad was Bob Eggleston. Is your dad still living? If so tell him hi. I miss my dad so much.

Hey Kat, Glad to hear you are getting back on the road. Any chance that might mean a concert schedule anywhere in California? There is a great small stage in Winters California, just 15 minutes from me(Davis CA). Should would love to get a chance to see you in California although I would try really hard to get to any concert in California. Just let me know of a time and date. Miss you tons. Lynne

Your exquisite music is an inspiration, and a continuation of a deep and meaningful tradition.

I have been a fan since I first heard you riding the Bainbridge Island ferry back in the early '80s as the Ferryboat Musicians

Andy Bytheway

Hi Kat,

I see others in your guest book, like me, heard you with Steve Guthe on the Ferries in the late 80's. Wow - I was completely knocked out by your voice, your command of the music, and by your technique on the dulcimer. At that time I was in Seattle for just one week, and I think I heard you and Steve only twice. When I returned to Seattle with my family some years later, telling them about your music, I looked for you in vain.

Worse, the cassette ("Overboard!") that I bought on the first trip was subsequently lost. I have moved many times since then, ending up in South Africa. I had long since given up hope of ever hearing your music again but - joy of joy! - I found the cassette yesterday at the bottom of a box under my desk (is it now 25 years later?). It is playing as I type this. I am so happy, and so relieved.

I want you to know that your music has never been forgotten, and I am delighted to find that you are still singing. If you have any intention to come to South Africa, you are assured of a warm welcome and whatever support we can provide.

Kat, I've been a fan since 1988 when I saw you perform on a ferry boat while I was traveling the country with my brother. I bought several of your cassettes (yes, cassettes) and the songs have have stayed with me all these years. I hope you will come play Charlottesville, VA. I will do my part to bring a crowd to hear you. Sincerely, Paul

I heard today,for the first time, a recording of "One" from your "Speak" album. The song is both beautiful and disturbing,like a kiss from a ghost;warm and cool...

I stumbled upon your albums while browsing at the public library, and ended up checking out all of them within a week. Your music is beautiful and you have a new fan!

Saw you in Utah several years ago, and again last night at the Sebastian Inlet Park in Florida. We spoke about a possible house concert. We feel so lucky to have been able to see you perform again. We are definitely adoring fans! We'll stay in touch...

Waiting to see if I survive my first computer I'm going to write.
I had been looking at Bayfield,Wis. for 25 years on a map. I finally went up there 11 years ago and noticed that I was home. I still am.
This note was inspired by your "dream". And I've been walking, moving to music. Amazing Grace and Would You Go Home keep coming up 0n THE WATERBUG ANTHOLOGY
Good luck Kat from Port Wing,Wis

Hi Kat:
We were at the old Boat House in Seattle last night (2nd row, on your left). We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in your company and that of your friends. We bought your new CD and the remix of Ferryboat Singers. So I got to listen to "Lovely Agnes" when I got home, and Phil got to listen to "Show" from the Only Word Album. We love your new album, "Speak". We've had it all going on all morning too. You are so gifted. Thanks for sharing with us!!

Hi Kat, My Mom and I went to RC Mulligans yesterday. Mom ( Margie) is always in hopes of seeing you there. Gus has been gone several years now and bringing her to their old haunts helps her to relive the grand times they had together. You are a special part of that as they had always enjoyed their times watching, listening and visiting with you. We picked up an Irish Times and Mom just called reading me a wonderful review of you and your new album (CD)( Man am I old!!) Speak. I'd like to secure a copy of it for an Easter Treat for her CDBaby wbsite is currently out of stock...I can download it for her on her IPOD, but her cell phone confuses her, there's no way I could put anipod in her hands!!!! ( I can only say that 'cos I love her dearly), my quest dear Kat, where can I purchase your CD Speak?... I hope allis well for you in Kansas and look forward to hearing from you.... Kate

I just heard "Everybody Knows" on XM 15 today and it touched me very deeply as I am in the middle of a rather painful divorce. Thank you for your music! I love it and hope to be at your show in Deerfield on March 6th!

You have no clue how happy I was to find you!!! I met you in Omaha, NE at a house concert when I was like 14 or 15 years old, and I was blown away by your music. I wish you and others would head to the Midwest again!!!!!

Hey, there! Listening to the Livies broadcast right now & feeling awfully proud to share the island connection with you. I live and farm in Maine now, but we've a wee house full of ballad books, bagpipes and the like. If you ever come up and over this way, there are a lot of Old Song (and new song!) lovers in our neck of the woods!

Brandee Gardiner

Kat, I helped Judy clean your home and just moved to Vernon Hills Il. My daughter was taking piano with Elizabeth Nye on the Island and I know you lived in Chi for some time. Your a very talented artist and was wondering if you have any recommendations for piano or guitar in Chi northwest suburbs? Would love any feedback...missing the Island!! Thanks so much, Brandee Gardiner

My wife Connie Slabaugh and I both really enjoyed your set at the ancient Victorys open mic last week. I know we have met before but never really talked. I played with Tim McKsmey for years but mostly do jazz and Brazilian music now, as well as sometimes playing with Eva Tree a wonderful singer/songwriter. Connie owns and operates Constantinople on Vashon, me if you ever need a percussionist!

Kat, miss you something fierce out here on the east coast, and am thrilled to be able to get my hands on a copy of Speak (just like I was thrilled, at 7 years old, to count First Warm Wind among my first CASSETTE TAPES).

How can we tempt you out to NYC for a show?

Love always, and be well!

Just saw your show at Space in Evanston, IL last night. It was inspirational, bar none! And I hope you realize it didn't take your leaving Chicago to let you know how much you'd be missed.

Kat, you are awesome. You are, like, one of the greatest singers, guitar players and song writers that ever kicked up dust on this planet. And you're cute too. Your new CD, SPEAK, is an instant classic. I hope to catch your show the next time you're in Whitehorse.

Seeing as I've been an adoring fan since 1984, if you only count this lifetime, I think I should sign in on this site to tell you it DOES look more like you, and that I am eagerly anticipating hearing the new CD.
