“Julie's USA Tour a Great Success!”

Julie and the band completed their 'Music of the Scottish Isles' USA Tour in great style at the Diana Wortham Theatre in Asheville (NC), on Friday 11.11.11 to a hugely enthusiastic audience and it was a perfect finale to what has been a highly successful 3 weeks.
 
Julie and the boys have had an absolute blast during the Tour and want to thank everyone who came to all the concerts to see them. They have also met so many interesting people at all the concerts and along their various routes between locations and are delighted with the many great messages received and posted on various websites and social sites, by fans both old and new!! Julie also wishes to once again apologise to all those people who had tickets to see her at the Musikfest Cafe' in Bethlehem (VA) where the freak but severe snow storms, forced the venue to cancel the concert on safety grounds. Hopefully, the venue can be included in the next USA Tour and if so, it is hoped that the weather will be more favourable next time round!!
 
More news to come from Julie soon following a well deserved short break after what has been a very hectic but highly enjoyable couple of months.
