Thanks to you, Milestones is off to the printer!

Hi everyone - 

Today marks one week since the end of the Kickstarter campaign, and 90 years since the birth of Doc Watson. Its a fitting day to send a sincere thank you to all who helped us get to this point. On Friday we sent the artwork to the printer, and tomorrow morning the audio goes to the manufacturer. Its still hard to believe the way this is happening and how the kindness and generosity of music/art-lovers can make projects like Milestones possible. There is something Utopian about it and it makes us all feel so encouraged. 

We expect to have everything back from the manufacturer on April 15th, at which point we will promptly mail out copies to all who have one coming. Other non-box set rewards will be coming in the next couple of weeks, once we are able to sort and process everything. For those who didnt pledge for a box-set, we will be taking pre-orders on March 15th on the website, so keep an eye out for that. 

Lastly, the final version of the Milestones film that we plan to show at Merlefest is up on our homepage now if you'd like to see it: www.docwatsonmilestones.com.

Thank you all very much!

Happy 90th Doc!

      I wonder if some price consideration might be given to the backers. I could not afford the donation for a free copy, but I gave what I could. Gladly and freely I gave. Just curious if some discount could be given during presale.
