Hi all,

Just had to get in touch to say “thank-you very much” for an absolutely brilliant week-end. From start to finish it was faultless! You even managed to get the weather right! Toilets were a huge improvement, no queues and kept clean and tidy.

Needless to say we’re booked for next year and already looking forward to it!

Give yourselves a clap on the back from us and we hope to share a dram or two with you next year!

Thanks again everyone XX

Yours (in Country)

Have returned home to West Yorkshire after attending your Festival over the Easter weekend. I must congratulate the committee for putting on such an excellent, well organised festival. It was obvious from the beginning that great effort and care had been taken to put on such a spectacle. We enjoyed the food that was available and I was able to purchase a fridge magnet of the Festival - great! Everybody was so friendly and helpful and, the music was first class.

The legendary songwriter Harlan Howard described country music as "three chords and the truth" and in my view that is correct. Good Country music doesn't need flashing lights or smoke, it speaks for itself.

This was our first visit to Halkirk and we will be back again next year to see Leona Williams, Amber Digby and the rest.

Thanks again for a wonderful weekend.

Hello There Christine,

I hope all is well you and your family and that the festival was a huge success!! I would like to thank you for giving the Boy's and I the opportunity to come to your festival! We had a Blast! And we would love to come back next year.

The crowd was great and I've never seen so many people singing along to my songs, that was priceless.

Once Again Thank You And Looking forward to hearing from you soon. Please say Hello to everyone for me :-)

All My Best

Hi Christine,

Thanks a lot for a great week-end, I am happy with everything I recorded and will put it to-gether for a show soon. I think you all do such a great job with the shows and the welcome for everyone, just a great atmosphere.

I enjoyed all the shows and in particular Michelle Wright, Billy Yates and Becky Hobbs. I thought the other acts put on great shows and I did enjoy Frank Jansen, loved his voice...

Ken Kelman enjoyed being there and the folk here were saying they heard him and it was sounding good…so a nice buzz around here for country music!!

Thanks again to everyone it was a brilliant week-end.

I am back in California now late last night and was just over breakfast telling my family how beautiful Scotland was our journey there and back was wonderful. We enjoyed our stay very much and I would like to thank you for your generosity I would live to do another show on my next year.

Warm Regards

Myself and the rest of the crew really enjoyed the festival and look forward to helping improving on what is already probably the best country music event in Britain. Pass on my thanks to the committee and helpers.

Simon, Small Town Audio

No less than fantastic we had a blast so refreshing to play at a well organized festival where people take care off detail.

On behalf of us all THANKS!!!! We'd love to return.

Cor Sanne & Savannah

Thanks for giving Michelle the opportunity to play at your festival We had a great time.

Michelle Wright

I hope you have managed to recover from a very successful festival.

Thanks and appreciation for the excellent way the backstage volunteers took care of the artists needs We were made to feel welcome form the minute we arrived and could see that the festival has grown to become the envy of many other festivals in terms of British Country Music.

I sincerely hope the population of Caithness, particularly the business population, appreciate the contribution the event makes to the local economy.

Kind Regards

Geordie, The Jacks
