“Just a note to express our appreciation of your superb playing at our wedding. It was much appreciated by our guests too - and Huw, having demurred, sang with you - a coup! We will no doubt be asking you again, two 70th birthdays in the next four years....... All our guests were thrilled with your playing, and several commented on how much they also enjoyed your spirit of communication with them - a real treat, and so much better than we could ever have asked for. Your contribution to our enjoyment of our wedding was huge and greatly appreciated.”
