Hi! from Diane and Mark

Mark & Di garden 6 2012 crppdThis is just to welcome you to our new website. We decided to lump all our various projects under one umbrella website, and have named ourselves “Eloquent Rascals.”

Eloquent, hopefully. Rascals, definitely.

We are glad to have you with us, and hope you find music, books or articles that fascinate or amuse or entertain you.

And do feel free to leave a comment or say hi, we’d love to hear from you!
