Hi David & Roselyn
Just thought, on a whim, I would put my first name in "google".
I thought I was the only Roselyn in the world but I find that I am not alone.
Good to see you and your partner seem to be so successful. I hope you are

i just know your music on the web right now and i really enjoy .
i'm a french guy fond of american music from the 30's and i project to
go to New Orleans next month of January, so i just wonder if you personally
give some guitar lessons or if you some guys who can do that in this style
; and maybe you 'll have some advice about rent a room and everything
in NO .
thanks a lot for your answer Gael

|I hope you were compensated! So, I'm watching American Idol on Fox last
Tuesday... and they're doing a montage for one of the contestants who is
from New Orleans (George Huff, love that guy!). And, while they're flashing
around the French Quarter, who do I see but my favorite street musicians
on-screen for just a second!! Yup, that's right. You were on American Idol!
:o) I hope you were compensated for your special guest performance! Love,

Belated thank you
My wife and I saw you in Jackson Square in about 1992 and it was fantastic.
I am a singer-songwriter and also love to play out for the folks. We own
and operate a coffee house in SE Wisconsin. If you ever come to Northern
Illinois or SE Wisconsin,we have connections to many fine venues. It would
be wonderful to see you in this area someday.
Thank you. Your music in an inspiration.

in.Good to see you're still jamming.Hugs, Sandy

Greetings from chilly CT
Dear David & Roselyn,
I was fortunate enough to hear you on several occassions this past week
while I was visiting New Orleans for the very first time. I was very impressed
with your music. In reading some of the preceding messages, I see that
your daughter goes to Yale. Is there any chance that you might someday
be playing up here? Please, please, let me know if you are planning on
doing so. I would love to hear you in person once again, as well as have
all my friends and relatives have the opportunity to hear you.
Thank you so much for making my first trip to New Orleans so memorable.

Dear David and Roselyn, I saw you on Broadway, in Baltimore, about fifteen
years ago. We spoke , and you were an inspiration to me in my music, and
working on the street. (I play flute.)Baltimore doesn't have much of a
street scene, but a few of us are working on it. I am so glad that you
are still playing, and congratulations on your anniversary .Thanks for
all you have done.

I think about you when I hear joyful music playing. I hope all is going

I got to play with them Kreig White here. While strolling with my family
in The Quarter Sunday, I met these fabulous people. Ms Lionheard even
had a banjo for me to play. "I Get The Blues When it Rains"
never sounded so sweet. I want to thank Roselyn and David for setting
me sit in. I would be delighted to do it again.

from t.o. to n.o.
hi roselyn and david and happy n'year in n'awlins! it was a buzz to meet
you in the french quarter, actually, run into you, with kitty as we wound
around that sensational city. kitty bought two cd's and have started listening
as well as reading charles kuralt's story on you guys. what material you
have to share! it was a blast and well send you pics, if you like?? as
a video producer, i'd love to maybe put something together on da ro, or
write a story? what do you think? cheers from email@example.com
January 10, 2003
Creaky but breathing
I finally thought of the net to contact you. Irene and we talk about you
frequently, especially as I am doing the entertainment programming for
next summer. (Yes, we are still doing Sawdust). I presume there are half
a dozen reasons why it would be difficult if not impossible for you to
show up in Laguna, but think on it, and advise.I was going to try to hire
Arlee, thinking she still might be bouncing around L.A, and it was gratifying
to the max to find all that Arlee stuff that Google belched forth... so,
she is out of reach also, congrats to her.Send me an email address, so
I can extemporize as loquaciously as is my wont.We have been in Flagstaff
for twelve years (gasp!). It ain't just the home of the Blues. (Those
Hopi and Navajo may be close to the Spirit, but they don't synchopate).
When we go to Laguna, we infest Dave Cross's loft like church mice.How's
Stormy. Big, we bet.You may know we lost Rodney a couple of years ago.
Not so many laughs around the show anymore. He knew better, but sauced
himself into an early demise.

Long Time No See Hi, David and Roselyn,
Haven't seen you in ages! I keep meaning to get in touch with Arlee,
too. (I'm gonna have to, because I'll be in NYC between Christmas &
New Years.) I think of you often, though, and I've worn out all my old
cassettes of your music, back from the old Santa Cruz and Aspen days.
I gotta buy the CD's now! Anyway, I am sending my friend Andy to look
you up since he's in New Orleans now. I hope he catches you--I've been
telling him how great you are, and what wonderful people too.
Hope all is well with you. If you ever make it through Tucson, look me
Much love,Kali Kali Tal
December 09, 2002
David and Roselyn,

Great to find you on the web and that you're still going strong!This

that long?) and, happy coincidence, Paris circa 1992. It's time for our
10-year rendezvous again... when are you coming back to France? Jean Jean

I read so many reviews about your CD.I was wondering where can I get
a coy of your cd there is so much that I don't even know about you cousin
in Flint,MI. When are you coming to Flint to perform? We do have a Jazz
Festival in August. It would be awsome for you and Arlee to perform .

Hey I'm back in black. And I ain't giving you no slack. Hope the gig
is a hit, in other words enjoy it. I've seen the house on Kenilworth and
passed it many times in my travels to Clark. Now I know where but don't
know how. Remember the Social clubs, Golden Leaf etc., and such stores
like Davis's next to the community center where I got my first immunization
shots? And when was the last time that you seen Clark School? When I was
there in Flint in 2000, a part of it was still up for sale. Well so much
to still do and I want to still perform with Arlee (if she will let me)
at Snug Harbor next Wednesday Feb. 27,2002. Peace and Love and Happiness!Count

back at last
My daughter and I saw you about two hours before we left New Orleans
four years ago. She bought a CD and I bought a tape, which we have played
over and over. Thought of you many times and wished that I could have
seen more of you. You know how it is living your daily life. Have not
had a chance to go on ANY vacation since then. Well, finally I get to
get away from San Francisco to come to New Orleans the end of this month.
I will be looking for you down at Jackson Square, where you were when
I was there last. I hope that you will be there. You were a highlight
of my trip last time!!! You have brought many hours of enjoyment with
your music. Thank you so much!!! eugenia February 02, 2002

Always a pleasure to hear you!
I have been a frequent visitor to New Orleans for many years. The city
has a magic and an allure that always brings me back. Perhaps one day
I'll live there. I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy hearing you
guys, and how good it is to see you performing on the street or in the
square, whenever I return. Your beautiful sound and warmth personifies
the great sound of New Orleans. When I first started going regularly to
Jazz Fest, I was sitting in Jackson Square (my favorite pastime, when
I visit), and that is when I heard you for the first time. It was my first
night in town after several years, and just kicking back, listening to
your great tunes, made me feel great, and at home. Someone requested "Do
You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans?", and hearing you play
that at that moment was very special for me. I wish you both continued
success. Your website is great...I had no idea you had one. Interesting
to hear about all the places you've been. And 40 years married! Wow! What
can I say....congratulations!! I anxiously await my next trip to N.O.
in November, and I hope to see you once again. All the best from Key West,
Florida (would be great if you can swing down here some time...you'd do
July 08, 2000

Hey Roselyn & David,Caught the end :-( of you show on Tuesday the
29th of August at the Oregon State Fair. Wish I had known about you or
found you earlier in the day instead of 8:30 PM.I am the one who was in
the wheelchair and asked you about the song "Ico". I've begun
my letter writing campaign to the fair committee and will send you copies
of them as promised. I've been going through your website and it's great----except-----why
no music background?? I would have thought you of all people would have
a midi or wave background.....have to work on that ;>) Gotta' run for
now, will e-mail you later as I have some questions for you which are
not music related. Wonderful performance and great voices and songs !!!!

Hello, David and Roselyn. My wife and I always try to stop and say hello
in the square or at the fest. This year was no exception. Saw and greeted
you both during Bob French's set "under the tent." Our only
disappointment was not "hearing" you both. I very much enjoyed
browsing your website. I appreciate what you both do for NOLA. PS--We
have an apartment on Gov. Nicholls by Verte Marte. Hope to see you next
trip.PSS--My daughters (4) always remember you both by the song, "When
I Get Drunk, Who's Gonna Carry Me Home!"
September 08, 2000
LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT
My daughter and I happened upon david and roselyn on our last run through
the french quarter just before we had to leave to go catch our plane.
maybe it was leaving the best for last! countless hours have been spent
listening to the tape and cd that we bought. each time the "joyful
noise" is celebrated, i think of the last hours in the french quarter
-- and when i can return. if david and roselyn EVER come to the san francisco
bay area, please please please let me know. eugenia
September 19, 2000
SAW YOU! I heard your trio for the first time just last Sunday, October
29. I am the lady with red hair who stopped on the street corner and talked
to the bass player and also bought a tape. The jazz style you were playing
that day is truly my favorite---melodic, sultry, and relaxing. All of
you play your instruments beautifully and Roslyn---you have such an unusual,
mellow voice---suited perfectly for jazz. I love those tambourines on
the floor, too!Will be back in New Orleans at Thanksgiving and will check
your schedule.Go glad I finally found a jazz group I like. I am sure you
can play any form of jazz, but what I heard Sunday I particularly like!Good
luck to all! Anna DuTerroil December 01, 2000
Hello! My wife and I have been in New Orleans in March 1999. In front
of the Cathedral we happened upon you and enjoined your music (and buyed
your CD's, too). I've taken a pair of pictures during your performance:
I will send them to you by e-mail immediately. Bye.Gianni and OrnellaVarese

Detroit Roots Hey there! Came across your website tonight! Very cool!
You should really check into the Oregon Country Fair for 2001, you are
welcomed to stay with us. Haven't seen you in a while and would love to
reconnect. We live in Eugene now, so sorry to have missed you in Salem,
did not know you were there. Earl is among the free now and living in
Florida. Cher was just here visiting and we plan on emailing her tonight
about your website! ~~ peace ~~ Love Paul and family Paul Fille'
December 28, 2000
Thank you David and Roselyn: I was strolling down Royal on Saturday with
the girl I love, not two days after Thanksgiving, and the soundtrack to
our walk was Silent Night, played on a trumpet. The moment my love and
I shared as that crystal clear trumpet soaked the street was one of the
most beautiful of my life. On Sunday, we were lucky enough to catch an
impromtu cameo from a carraigeman who joined you all in a blues progression
from his hadsome cab. That moment made me very happy. Wow. Thank you,
both for those memories and may your holidays be filled with joy and happiness.
PS: Can you reccommend one of your albums that captures that down-home,
no foolin', got-to-be-real blues. Something that captures Roselyn's voice
at its most expressive and poingant?My eamil is firstname.lastname@example.org
PPS: By the way, I'm sitting at home now in Miami. Did you guys ever make
it down here after the breakdown in Louisiana? Do you make it down here

Kindreds? Hello, Folks! I found your site looking for lyrics to "When
the Chariot Comes". I'm a percussionist, banjoist and "storyteller"
(I call it "edu-tainment" and contextualization)living out here
in Tempe, AZ., doing some music in the same vein. Do you perform in between
LA and L.A.? There are a couple of places here that might be good venues.You
can find a bit on me @ www.azrhythmconnnection.com
Shoot me a line to:email@example.com
Take care, and keep on going!SGWilson Sule Greg Wilson

Saw you in '87 I saw you at a street fair in Tucson (March '87). I played
your tape for years until it finally broke several years ago. I came across
the cassette case while cleaning a drawer and decided to search the net
to see if you were still around. What a nice surprise to find you web
site! Hope you and your family are all well. You have given me another
reason to go visit New Orleans. Your performance was the most memorable
event of my trip, and I was there two months. I really look forward to
seeing you again.

Hey Moms & Pops!!! I know, not your preferred names, but it's me,
your lovely daughter, writing from my web tv here in Dubai at 6am, when
I should be sleeping! So nice to see my parents lovely faces on my tv
screen! I just wish the system here would let me play your videos and
hear your music. Yes, in my rush to leave New York I wasn't able to grab
the CDs I wanted to take on this middle east journey, and I have none
of your groovy sounds around. Well, other than in spirit and in my head!!
Everytime I sing Summertime I think of you two on either side of me and
us all performing it together. I'll see you in New Orleans for Jazz Fest!
Mother, book those gigs now!!!Love, ArleeFor the curious, check out:http://jumeirah-beach.com

Great street performances are really gripping! I came back for more, bringing
my friend - yesterday you had two math teachers absorbed. Tonight I'm
back home in Brooklyn and just finished listening to the CD I bought from
you. (Do you remember a slightly English accent two days ago?) I admire
you for constructing such a satisfying life - for yourselves, and for
your audience. I'm sure that I'll have to have the other CD's when my
budget recovers from my trip to New Orleans. Ros

Dear David and Roselyn.....Nice site! I can realte to the 60's motiff.
You both sound like fascinating people, and are apparently very talented.
Are you related to Herman Leaonard the photographer? Hope to hear you
both in person one day. By for now,'Rocky'.

i heard you guys for the first time in new orleans and fell in love with
"suck in your gut" how and where can i get a copy of that song?
August 31, 2001
David and Roselyn!
Of course, I would find you on the web in the millineum!! I first "discovered"
you and your music at the Sawdust Festival in Laguna Beach......way back
when. And went to see you at the Tempe Festival several times. I just
want you to know that your music has touched me and is a positive, wonderful
expression! My daughter was fed a steady diet of your music throughout
her life (she's 18 now) and I still cherish my original tapes and play
them often. The first song that I ever heard you two perform was 'Chicago".
And has become my favorite (if that is possible to choose a favorite!!).Wow!
I'm so glad to see that you are still going stronger than ever! I love
you two! Thank you so much for doing what you do!Love,Love,Love and Bliss,

Hey David & Roselyn,We here in Ventura county, California are still
