Thank you, Kathy, for posting the videos you did of Tim and Kenny. Although I raced from the Cape Cod Maritime Festival, where I played a Barnacle performance, I saw Deidre, and vaulted the gate at the Seaport at 6 p.m., raced to the shed hoping to catch Marc, Tim, and Kenny, I missed them and only caught the final Leave Her Johnny.

Thanks to you, Kathy, I did get to see two performances by the boyz. Thanks.

Kathy, I agree with Charley: good work. I'm curious about how you decide what to record knowing you can't capture everything.

Sciencegeek, a good time for a Saturday Mudcat picnic might be after the end of the afternoon concert but before the start of the evening concert. I think we are allowed to stay on the grounds although I usually leave to grab something to eat. There isn't enough time between the Saturday symposium and the start of the afternoon concerts. However, performers for the next concert might have to do sound checks. As you said, we have a lot of time to think about this.

Now I saw lots of folks snapping photos at the Festival. How about doing some editing and posting a link to where we can view them? I'd love to see what I've missed.

I've only got about 500 more to run through myself, mostly of the Saturday evening concert, the C. Fox Smith Workshop and the Grand Finale. The late night sessions over at the German dancehall are the most challenging to photograph; the lighting is very low and it's difficult to find one good location to shoot from.

Anonymous Guest, you have a good idea, but it might be hard to find a time to meet for a meal.

At Charlie's request, another of my videos from Mystic, this one of Roll & Go from the "Fitting Out" concert Thursday night.

http://youtu.be/zpGX4aD44RE

Alas, I forgot to check that my camera battery was fully charged before I left home, and because our flight was delayed by the storm there was no time to charge it before the concert. I couldn't record as much as I wanted to and finished off the evening with about two minutes of battery life left!

Indeed, Marc. There have been times in the past when it felt like the food service folks were almost hostile to the crew, performers and volunteers. The return to a more relaxed, family like setting - even with the pressure of running around from site to site- promoted a good sense of positive morale.
Folks knew that their well being was an important concern and the kitchen crew did their best to ensure everyone was taken care of. Though it seems that a number of performers had no idea what the $10 food voucher was for. sigh... :)

Weather permitting, it would be nice to set up a picnic blanket on the village green and have a Mudcat Box Lunch for a meet & greet. I know there are still plenty of catters out there I have yet to put a face to.

You and your crew were great, and even accommodated us when we came in at 2 PM (having been booked from 12 to 2).

If we missed a meal it was because we were totally distracted, or physically dragged to some local watering hole. A barrel of grog was probably beyond the budget, not to mention beyond the pale (pail?)!

ChantyLass-

Thanks for posting the rest of the story of The Wreck of the Glenneslin. It's a sad story for a splendid looking ship but at least the crew survived and the officers were reprimanded.

That was Nor and Eli Dale who led "How Can I Keep from Singing" at the Greenmanville Church at the Sunday morning hymn sing.

I'm beginning to edit Judy's vast inventory of photos from Saturday and Sunday, most of which will not be keepers but I've got to run through them all. Judy arrived at the Festival site Saturday morning with about one hour of sleep; fortunately she was driven by Jeff's wife so she got some additional sleep on the way.

Great photos, Charley! I don't know how you got them up so fast! I'm still catching up on sleep! This year I didn't take any photos except two with my phone at the closing concert.

In spite of my having posted a message from Mystic saying there would be no food vendors at the evening concerts, they were there on Friday but not Thursday or Saturday because of rain. They were also there during the Sunday closing concert. Because their presence was inconsistent, it was a good thing I had made other arrangements. I did buy some beverages to supplement the water I'd brought. Charley, I'm glad the performers had a reliable source for meals.

Please tell your bandmates that I was glad they sang How Can I Keep from Singing at the church sing. I was hoping someone would do it, and they did it well.

I saw Jon Campbell at the closing concert on Sunday. That was the only time I saw him there.

I hope to get back to the seaport for their Independence Day celebration. It is the day after New Bedford's Summerfest. I plan to go to both days of that but will commute from home and won't make it to Mystic if I am too tired.

If you are not on Facebook, I think this link will let you see the article. http://stonington.patch.com/articles/mystic-seaports-sea-music-festival-is-a-celebration-for-all

I agree that Kapriol'! was wonderful. A friend met me on Saturday and I told her to make sure to hear them, which she did. Another friend who is a deejay on WRIU (same station Laura Travis, closing concert host, is on) was supposed to meet me on Sunday, but she brings her dog and if the rain continued she would have been limited to the Boat Shed, so she backed out. She asked me to buy a Kapriol'! CD for her, but they had already sold out.

I thought the song Ken Sweeney sang about Guzzling Gus and his brothers was wonderful. I liked the way he performed it at the pub blast even better than the way he did it at the closing concert.

Sciencegeek, I was glad I could supply the batteries you needed. I'd appreciate it if you'd replace them for me next year!

To all at the Seaport, thank you for the outstanding experience of our 24th festival...such sweet memories to savor for another year. The music still fills my head, and it is hard to concentrate on my classes here, but next week will be final exams then summer vacation, and we can come to Mystic more frequently....ChanteyLass, Yes, Geoff's "Last Leviathan" (name of song) was sad and stirring and soul wrenching, and we first heard it 24 years ago at our first festival, but I have not heard it done for a long time. It was lovely to meet you so we are now festival family members. To all our other festival family members,farewell and safe voyage until next time.

Thanks to Geoff Kaufman and all the other staff and volunteers who produced this magnificent sea music festival, and to the folks who attended.

Special thanks to the kitchen crew at the YTB who prepared our breakfasts, lunches and dinners.

This year Julie and her sales staff at the Boathouse did an outstanding job with the CDs. Everything was well displayed, inventoried, and ready for check-out when performers were leaving the Festival on Sunday.

Some of my favorite memories was just wandering around with Roll & Go on Friday when we had nothing official to do. First we serenaded the old Maine steamboat Sabino and then took a short harbor cruise aboard her. Then we crawled all over the Charles W. Morgan (which is being completely rebuilt) and led a few shanties on her deck. We also did an impromptu set at the performance stage by the Spouter Inn, and then scoped out the Greenmanville Church to see how best to deal with its very live acoustics when we were doing the C. Fox Smith workshop.

I have to say that the Dutch group Kapriol was one of my favorites, among performers who I am less familiar with. They have energy and talent on all levels, and one is irresistibly drawn in to sing with them with hardly a clue what one is singing! Tom Kastle obviously had great fun leading one of their traditional songs with them, "Hand Over Hand."

The Northern Neck Chantey Singers also did a great job of demonstrating how their traditional net-hauling songs were really done.

There's a whole lot more I could say but maybe some other survivors should post their remarks. I have a whole lot of photo editing to do, thanks to JudyB who only managed to come down Saturday and Sunday but still shot 700 photos; I only managed to shoot about a dozen photos, mostly while we were cruising aboard the steamboat Sabino.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Mel, no, that wasn't me. I ate lunch alone in the Galley and dinner close to home in RI. However, next time I see you I will introduce myself now that I know your name or even if I forget it. (I'm pretty shy and a lot older.) Do you plan to go to Chantey Blast? I do but almost didn't last year because of bad weather. And I'll be back at Mystic before then. I don't know how often you go there, but maybe we will cross paths. I was pretty sure your partner was named Nicole but didn't know her last name.

KathyW and Charley Noble, I look forward to seeing anything you put online.

Pam and Sue, how about Geoff Kauffman singing about the last Great Whale at the Whales and Whaling workshop? I saw you there. That and people putting arms around each other and swaying to Geoff Kauffman leading the closing song Leave Her, Johnny, Leave Her brought tears to my eyes. During that last song I was standing next to one of Mystic's craft demonstrators. Coincidentally, he had sat next to me at January's Chantey Blast. His voice is almost as deep as Don Sineti's, and since some vocal cord damage I often sing in a deep voice, too. I can't carry a tune, but standing next to him probably helped! Also, you might want to check out Chris and Meredith Thompson, singer/songwriter identical twins who grew up in Providence and started performing as teenagers at open mics at Stone Soup, so I've watched them grow up and have always been able to tell the apart by their facial bone structure. In fact, I did not think they were identical until they said so! They also said that their parents would never tell them who was born first, but eventually they got their birth certificates. On that, my guess was wrong. Most of their songs are not about the sea, but I think they are wonderful. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qPkvoY7MJA Both are parents of young children, making performance dates hard, but here's their website. http://www.cmthompson.com/There are more videos of them on YouTube as well as videos of them with Pete and Maura Kennedy in a quartet called The Strangelings.

This is being written on coming down day as we always refer to it. the festival was such a delight. We made some new friends and identified others as sometimes we know people but not their names. The music was excellent with the saturday night pub one of our favorites ever. The music, the dancing, the hugs and kisses were top notch We especially enjoyed the Souzas, Peters Juliana and JoAnns Keep on Fishing were great. The North Neck Chanteymen were a joy to behold but the real dark horse was Jack Dalton. He brought fun and energy in a new form.Ill never forget the Yupik pick up line "We are not related" Laughed until we cried. One more great festival in the books. Looking forward to the next which will be our twenty fifth. Enjoy the year ahead may it be kind to you all and we hope to see yo in January. The Twins

I couldn't make it--busy all weekend on the other side of Connecticut, but I did discover that the evening concerts on Friday and Saturday were broadcast on radio, and will be available archivally for a couple of weeks only. Go to http://archives.wpkn.org/ and scroll to either Friday, June 10 or Saturday, June 11. Listen to the shows scheduled for 7:00 p.m. to 10 or 11:00 p.m.--ignore the names of the shows, which just indicate the DJs who were pre-empted by the special broadcast. It's not the whole festival, but at least it's a taste for those of us who couldn't make it.

--Charlie Baum, who couldn't get to sleep on Saturday night, but listened to some of the singers in a delayed archival broadcast via the internet

...and if you're the Mel I met earlier this year, you've got a wonderful voice... and nice pants. Come to Portsmouth for the shanty session next Saturday, or maybe I'll run into a pack of NYC peeps at Old Songs.

One of these years, I'll make it. I'm actually a bit afraid, as I think that once I go, I won't want to ever miss it.

This was my first time at Mystic and certainly not my last! I had a wonderful time, but next time I have to plan ahead for sleep deprivation. The whole community was really welcoming and showed me a great time. ChanteyLass, I think we finally introduced ourselves to each other as I was leaving dinner on Sunday. Hopefully I will be less bashful next year and actualy get up and lead! Thanks for a great weekend, all.

Mel, the other half of the dancing couple
