Folksie Lady If You Had Your Druthers (32) RE: If You Had Your Druthers 14 Jun 99

A definite yes on the courtyard and the fireplace-lit room for the seisuns, too! I take it this will be in a clime with unpredicatable weather? I hadn't thought about having it here in TX...but now that you mention it, we've got the crazy weather and not many folk venues to boot. Hmm.

Ok, I'm thinking open mic maybe twice a week, or three. And relatively unknown performers the rest of the time. Well-paid, free accommodations with a well-stocked kitchen, and a CD of their performance as well! 'Course if the "big names" wish to drop by, they are more than welcome, especially since the place will be open around the clock. A haven for world-weary folkies.

That's very interesting, folk1234, because those happen to be my two passions as well. Folk music and needlework. I will definitely have a room with easy chairs for all of the stitchers who drop by! And will sell some music-related patterns and have a stitching bee while the music plays. See, it really *will* be just like home, only noisier!

Good question, PJ--perhaps it would be best to have some floor-specific books down near the pub and stage, couryard and stitchery et al....there's the dilemma of the sloped floors with drains, you know, and the academicians of the 2nd floor might not like that type of tomfoolery on their reference materials! But we'll come up with a happy medium. Heck, I'll probably throw in a free CD with purchase or something. I love those Waterbug samplers. Here's a question for Sandy Paton, whose music and label I greatly admire--are there plans in the works for Folk-Legacy to put out introductory samplers? If this is a state secret, I humbly withdraw the question and will go on with my grandiosity! :)

Folksie, still dreaming happily....
