My name is Peter Verhoye and I live near Brussels, Belgium. Some years ago I met some of the HG list members in real in Graham's garden during a workshop. Since then I hope to come to one of the HG weekends organised but they always seem to interfere with other engagements (and coming over to the UK is never too much asked
Anyway, I play a Kitty-HG made by Chris Allen, which is still playing fine and great and still the only instrument I own. Someday I might by myself a bigger HG in D but first my playing should be better
(or have more money so that I don't have to justify it to Saskia
How did it all start? A visit to Canterbury where I saw a chap playing an instrument which sound heaven to me (and hell to my friends). I bought his cassette. That chap was....Philip G Martin
. And the cassette was 'Vielle Sauvage' (which I should really one day convert into a digital state or buy the digital version, I know). The next 'sign' was finding a teacher in Brussels (Ruprecht Niepold).
See and read you all later!!
