DEDICATION

This Website is dedicated to the memory my parents Peter & Irene Chilcott without whom, obviously, I wouldn't be here... 
...but also for their support of me going off in a direction that was highly unpredictable, unstable and high risk, 
that they wouldn't have chosen for me, but none the less I was 'stupid' enough to go down.
I reckon that they'd be pretty pleased at how things have turned out... so far.

This website is also dedicated to
Lyn's parents John & Pat Bristow, who, over 20 years ago, let their daughter go off with this 
"
weirdo guitar maker" from London, for them to just let us get on with it and give us their eternal support, somewhere to 
get a shower & a sleep on occasion, always having loads of food available when we were about and for their 
on-going support and encouragement for our goals as a family. We couldn't have done it without you
