Thank you for your enquiry. Tracey performed admirably and her bubbly demeanor and professional playing were the hit of the party. I am extremely happy with her performance and my guests were very impressed by her.
I have no qualms about recommending her as a performing artist to anyone who may enjoy some excellent accordion music played by a very obliging performer who can take requests and look like she is having a whale of a time herself.
Yes, we were delighted with Tracey's performance.
It added a lot to a great evening.
