"Your performance last night at The Sequoias was superb!  The musical introduction and interlude were enjoyed as much as the dancing, as both were presented with their history and contemporary insights.  You kept the audience enthralled from beginning to end, even the little ones!  Thanks so much for once again bringing us a wonderful evening."

"Everyone enjoyed the dancers so much last night!  I've received so many comments today, and it was great to find the pictures in today's Daily News, which arrives at Sequoias early in the morning.   Our audience especially appreciated your introductions of the dances and their history, and it was such a treat to hear the instruments played separately from the dances too.  The precision and energy of the group is really impressive.  Thanks for bringing us such an outstanding evening."

John Sorensen, President AARP Chapter #3156

"The performance of the Red Thistle Dancers today at the AARP South San Francisco Chapter #3156 was exceptional.  We thank you and the members very much.   This was the first time in my memory that all of our chapter members remained after the close of the meeting and did not leave during or after the performance.  The comments of the chapter members were all glowing.  Thanks again."
