The Very Unofficial Highwaymen Fan Club

Back in the day we had an "official" fan club, with a President, membership and dues, the whole deal. All that is history. But by golly, we sure do still have fans, and these guys are at the top of the list.

Hy Yarchun first saw us in 1961 at The Totem Pole Club outside of Boston, and in recent years has often crossed the continent just to catch our concerts. Robert Cirillo has known our music since childhood and met us in person about 10 years or so ago, and has flown from Amsterdam, Holland to see and visit with us. He writes:
"I was recently in California and decided to swing down to Redondo Beach and visit that other great fan of the Highwaymen, the illustrious Mr. Hy Yarchun. We put on a great two-man Highwaymen Fan Club convention. We got out our guitars and a banjo and sang Highwaymen songs till late into the night. It was a blast, definitely something to be repeated. The attached photos bear witness to the event."

Thanks, guys!
