Leadfingers,
The Portsmouth festival is much larger and established. Contact Tom Hall (curmudgeon) about available spots. Carole and Andrew are appearing this year. I hope Hissyfit will appear next. We are a few months away from setting a date for Portland but it will not be anytime near the Getaway.

Highly unlikely to be close to the Getaway, Terry. The Portsmouth (NH) festival takes that spot and has done so for many years. Curmudgeon can tell you more about that. We're still thinking about a regular date for the future.

Carole - the photos are labelled if you click in and scroll through - just look above each enlarged photo for the 'cast'.

Deborah - you fell down on the job! Gordon Bok was accosted by an adoring fan, older than dirt, who would not go away (no, not Jacqui). Where were you????
LOL I knew you weren't up to the job. Next year we put Tami on watch with Joey and Bandit at her side.
Deborah, you were our first sponsor and I used your name to get our next two. Thank you for your generosity. But thank you most of all for your friendship. You and Tom always come through and always with grace and humor. I love you both dearly.

So glad this thread came back up!!

Just wanted to say how impressed I was with the way that you guys have managed to pull this all together. I read through the thread after the event or I'd have been sending you positive thoughts for success and good weather, but it looks like you had plenty of help and encouragement. It sounds like you've all had a lot of hard work, but also a great deal of fun & this has given you a firm footing into Next Year. Well done to all the organisers, performers & supporters!

Lovely photos, by the way, but I could only recognise the Gnome and Jacqui & Kendall. Any chance of any captions?

we're both still pinching ourselves at how well it all went last weekend.

By rights we should have had at least one "oh shit!" moment but we didn't.

We have learned a lot from last week and are now starting to think about what will happen next year. We will choose people to help who have expertise in specific areas - we already have a few people who we know are good at publicity and whose experience will be drawn upon. We know that we can trust those people to do the job and that will be one less task for us.

First thing is sponsorship. We already have a couple of sponsors and will be looking around the area to see who we can persuade to come on board as well.

Many thanks, once again to all those who made it such a memorable day for all of us.

Well , it was a week yesterday since things went off in Portland.
What a treat. Mary and Jacqui....you both deserve grand kudos for putting this event together. And for your hospitality over the weekend thankyou so very much....although a couple of us signed off in the wee morning hours....a great time was had by all. Hope that this can be done again next year...assistance will come quicker as people got a chance to see what went on, where it was and who attended. I got very hungry on the way home and even the rubber fish started to look good to me. No ketchup so I passed. We stopped by to sing at two other events on the way home and made it in by 10 pm on Sunday evening. This was the definite start of something good that will and can happen next year and for many years to follow. Congratulations and thanks for the invite. Lots of really good things happened to lots of good people last weekend....and thanks from "Fivebitter" too.

I would strongly advise against planning anything for this calendar year. I'm going to be busy with the Portsmouth Festival until the first of October. Then comes the Getaway, followed too quickly by Halloween. Then comes snow season.

My thoughts exactly Tom - anyway, two months is nowhere near long enough to get something like that off the ground and do it justice.

I'm sure that Mary and the museum will be able to work out a good date - I like your idea about May 2nd though.

However, May 2 is a Saturday, and the day after the internationl holiday of the working class might be appropriate.

I looked at the photos before I went to work this morning. Hmmm...I usually don't see too many of myself because I'm usually the one behind the camera, but in this batch, I made a major discovery. Because my mouth turns down at the corners, when my face is "at rest" I look grouchy. I'm not a grouchy person!!! (Nor even curmudgeonly, of which Kendall says a woman can't be a curmudgeon anyway.)

So....

I spent the day (in the car, at work, at odd moments, in the car again) practicing what FEELS like a smile, but just looks like my mouth is a straight line (at least not curved down) and lifts my cheeks (not THOSE cheeks!) and, at least, makes me look happy.

Arghhh! When did my face start frowning?!? My brain hasn't been!

(I'm also willing to brush off and trot out "Doffing Mistress", "Poverty Knock" , Bread and Roses" and whatever other millworker songs I know.)

Sinsull-

Oh, dear me, the mill is running fast!

My suggestion is a minimum lead-time of three months for planning and publicity, which would place the event in November which unfortunately is a marginal month for a festival. So maybe it best be done in mid-October; no sane organizer wants to compete with Halloween.

I'd be happy to bounce this off Roll & Go. It would be real fun to work up some mill songs, and some general drinking songs which we already know a good many.

Shove around the grog, boys,
The chorus around the room;
We're the boys that fear no noise
Although we're far from home!

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

I wanna know who photoshopped this one!!! I look like I'm either wearing a Halloween mask or my alien shapeshifter disguise is losing integrity. It might be an elbow where my nose is supposed to be, but I can't explain the eyebrow or the hairline. Next time, do some horns or antennae or something, eh?

That was a fine little festival. Such an amazing fund of knowledge so unobtrusively expressed, and singers I've admired for decades all together,all under the same overcast. What a treat.
    Had never heard Holly T. do a set before: that was great. And David C.and daughter was another unexpected delight. ( If you start a pool on how to spell her name, I'll go for Linnea...)
