GUEST,Ron Olesko Mystic Seaport Sea Music Festival 2003 (122* d) RE: Mystic Seaport Sea Music Festival 16 Jun 03


What a great festival!   I'm sorry I missed the other 23!

My family and I had a great time. My son loved the Georgia Sea Island Singers childrens performance, but he was too shy to join in the turkey dance (he takes after his Dad!). The Georgia Sea Islanders were amazing. I loved the evening concert they gave - a great blend of education and entertainment! I was really moved.

I was most impressed with Don Sineti and very embarrased that I had not heard him before! The Morgans were wonderful.   I thought the Stan Rogers tribute was very tastefully done. Don Milner & crew were terrific - I can't wait to listen to the new CD. Watch for it! Tom Lewis, Danny Spooner, Geoff Kaufman, and so many others - simply wonderful!

We arrived much later than we expected on Friday and missed the concert.   I knew I was in trouble when I saw the electronic sign on 95 saying "Rush Hour delays - next 27 miles".   What normally should be a 2 hour drive took over 4 1/2 hours.

The "pub" sing on Saturday was wonderful.    Who was that young boy that stood up next to Barry?   Great spirit and hope for the future!

My only regret is that I didn't get to meet many Mudcatters. I still don't know what everybody looks like and I did not see any Mudcat T-shirts. I didn't run into Dick Greenhaus at Mystic so I didn't get to pickup my shirt.   Will you be at Old Songs?    I will be there, a heavyset guy with a ponytail wearing glasses and probably my loud Hawaiian shirt.

I'm marking my calendar for next year's Mystic fest!

Ron
