    I am Rev. Pam Geagan’s best friend and attended the ordination ceremonies on Sunday. I would love to get a CD of Ken Francis’ music. Does he have one available through our church or through him personally. Or do you have a CD of a mix of music from your church. Please email me if you do:

    Hi Ken,
    I represent Ventura based Matt and Rebecca Stuart. They’re more popularly known as recording artists MInstrel Streams (www.minstrelstreams.com). If you host outside musicians, then Matt (piano) and Rebecca (flutes) would like to be considered to play at a Sunday service or to give a concert at the Center for Spiritual Living. They have recorded 5 CDs to date. If you would like a sample of their music and/or more information about them, then please let me know. Thank you for any consideration given to Minstrel Streams. I look forward to hearing your thoughts about the possibilities.
    Best regards,
