SDShad Snug open on Sunday - (32) RE: Snug open on Sunday - 13 Jan 02

Well, it's a darned good thing it's an R-rated room, then. Don't know if they'd allow sinning in KatRose's room! :-)

Goodness me, wasn't that a time? I've missed the Mudcat song circles immensely, and this one was one of the best times I've had online in a long time.

I recall there was an occasional custom in the HearMe days to post what you'd sung, so without further ado, I sang (with ample backup from Beth):

Tear My Stillhouse Down--Gillian Welch
Do Re Mi--Woody Guthrie
The Cobbler-tr.
Zumbro Valley-my own
Heavenly Houseboat Blues--Townes Van Zandt
Star of the County Down--tr.

We turned out not to have company after all (just as well, as I was coming down with a bit of a sore throat), so we popped back in at the very end and I sang "The Parting Glass," when there were only a couple of others left in the room. Then, not wanting the fun to end, we went to the Acoustic Guitars Live room, where we did Kate Wolf's "Across the Great Divide," and then to KatRose's room, where we did Townes' "Tecumseh Valley," and "Zumbro Valley" and "Tear My Stillhouse Down" again.

I know, I know, sore throat, should've been resting, but dang we were having too much fun.

And I'll tell you, though we had grand fun in those rooms, and there's tons of talent there (and good taste in material, including Steve Earle, Rodney Crowell, and a guitarist who reminded me very much of both Chet Atkins and Les Paul), I'd still stack up the quality of what we heard in our much smaller Mudcat Snug room against any of what we heard there--and while our style of music is welcomed with open arms and indeed sought out there, the Snug is more our style. Y'all did yourselves proud. Great thanks to those who moderated, who performed, and who hung out and listened.

And Liz, it's only by some mysterious providence that I wasn't taking a sip of my water or wine at the several times when you would've guaranteed it shooting out my nose. :-)
