Of Poets and Possibilities


Ted Mikalski has been a friend of ours for a very long time... over 30 years in fact. We lost touch with him for many years, but a few years ago we got back together and Bryan recorded him singing his own songs, and eventually produced a CD.

He did a CD launch last night, at a club in South London (Tulse Hill). The gig was organised by Ingrid (Heartsong on myspace) and the evening was a mixture of poetry and song. Ted Met a few people he'd 'known' on Myspace for some time - but this time 'in the flesh'. Bryan and I accompanied him - I played my stand up bass and Bryan played mandolin - but the star of the show was Ted. He has an easy way with him on stage that engates and relaxes audiences. One of the other performers Was Jude Cowan - another myspace friend. She has an amazing wit and intellect that she transfers amazingly in song.
I hope this PayPal button thing works - it would be good to sell a few CDs for Ted at last.
