We’ve lived in Gloucester for over 12 years and made some good friends here. The naming of ‘best friends‘ that seemed so important as a child ceased being necessary when I married my best friend in 1998. Our dearest friends come hand in hand with lovely others now so how could I possibly single out any one person, other than G. Well I couldn’t but I completely understand the affection with which some people are able to name that one special ”best friend” in their life. G is one of them when it comes to our friend Dan. And what makes Dan worthy of this title? Well, I won’t embarrass him by sharing all his wonderful qualities and endearing quirks here but the strength of Dan and George’s connection is tied to their shared passion and talent for music. They’ve created some of the most moving tracks I’ve had the good fortune to smile, sway and cry to and I’m sure the quality of their music making is rooted in the depth of their friendship and their openness to love and let go in equal measure. Music reviewer Stephen Morris said ‘‘their music is as sumptuous and gorgeous as it is poignant and imaginative”.
