didn't even think about going on-line when I got home last night; about 5 pm; crashed and slept until about 10 this am.

Micca - I heard "tenting tonite" - I'm glad it cccurred.

I got to wallow in the music, as usual...

we have GOT to come up with that cloning workshop though - trying to be in Peace AND the nature center AND the retreat center AND the campfire is just too much.

Amazing, mind-boggling music. The Skipper made me cry again, the bugger, with some help from his amazing lady Jacqui. A thousand places where I could have wept of danced occurred during the weekend.

The Getaway is a special kind of open-heart surgery. If you haven't felt the surge of an open heart lately before you arrive, you surely will by the time you leave. Assuming you ain't dead yet.

It is transportive, transformative, exalting and exulting, exhausting and uplifting and mystically dizzying. A wonderful piece of social engineering by big hearts and kind souls.

I think this was one of the "high light" Getaways for me. First, let me mention that the members of Meteora were active on Monday morning helping to put the place back together. Truer folkies never lived. I co-led two workshops. The first was with Donna Fletcher on "singing the blues". She had some great material and lectured a bit on technique and hints. It was a fine job and then we had the group members try out their wings on some old blues standards. It was a very happy bunch at the end of the workshop and it appeared some folks "cut their first blues eye teeth" that morning. I give Donna all of the credit, I mostly sat there, strummed guitar, and cast a few bon mots.

The second workshop was with Phil Fox on "Roadhouse songs." I think Phil, whom I had never met until this weekend, looked the part of a roadhouse singer better than I. We had lots of participation. I want to thank Amos for adding a song after I intimidated him when he said he didn't have a song ready. As you might guess, he had a fine song, Richard Thompson's "Vincent Black Lightning." Somewhat to my surprise we had a few acapella contributors, but that worked fine. Thanks to Kathy for providing the required Hank Williams number, couldn't a-been a Roadhouse without one.

I almost missed putting my name on the sign-up list for the Sunday night concert, but they squeezed me in. I really appreciated the audience response to Kristina Olson's "Stop Doing So Well."

I tried staying up late on Saturday. I lasted until 2:30 AM, Sunday. I got up at 7:30 AM on Sunday morning for breakfast and ran into one of my roommates in the bathroom. I noted I was surprised to see him up so early. He said he hadn't gotten up, rather he had not yet been to bed (how do they do that?). After lunch I had half hour with no particular workshop that stirred my soul. I then spent about 20 minutes trying to remember where I had last left my guitar. I can't remember anytime in my adult life when I didn't know where my guitar was. I finally remembered where I had last left it and I fetched it soon enough to co-lead the roadhouse workshop. I think I'm swearing off late night singing however.

I know many people were worried about the weather. It rained gently on Friday night, but Saturday and Sunday were beautiful sunlit days.

Marge, who didn't attend, says "Hi" back to all of those who asked about her. You know who you are.

It was also a great pleasure to see Max for the first time in a while and talk about Radio, the music business, and Penn State. He has become a fine guitarist and singer of the blues.

One of the many high spots for me was provided by Kiran Schatz. A few years ago I recorded one of Robert McClosky's children's stories called Bert Dow, deep water man, and I gave it to Kiran.Kiran came to me and he said, "I want to thank you for making that CD for me. I like it so much I went and bought the book"! Now, I know I have made a difference in a child's life. Thanks, Little Buddy.

Thanks also to Ron for your comments on my rendition of Lorena. Your praise was almost embarrassing!

Skyping is not as good as being there but it is a fantastic alternative. It was wonderful not only to see so many familiar faces and to hear so many familiar voices but it felt so connected.
In the concerts you guys sounded fantastic, an opinion I hold even when the sound broke up and we could hardly make out the tune. No fear- you were fantastic.

Oh- Micca, thanks for doing 'Gladiator'. We were hoping you would and we sang right along.   Another notable song that came through clearly- along with those wonderful harmonies rising from the audience - was 'River'. Thanks, Joe O.

Many, many thanks to Celtaddict...

Maybe I should sing "Key of R" at next year's concert....

Many old friends not there that I missed, and new friends to be made. It is amazing the magic of this weekend never wears thin from year to year. I wasn't sure how much I would enjoy myself with limited voice to participate, but think I actually enjoyed it more because I wasn't so worried about not having a song for the workshops I attended.

Saturday night Annie and I wandered out of the Retreat Center. She was headed to bed down in her Subaru, having stayed late enough that a three hour drive home was imprudent, and I decided to head for bed myself - do the responsible thing, you know? But as I stood in the center of the camp music was wafting around me from the 4 directions. Had to follow it all....A journey that will leave me exhausted for the next week but well worth it.

It really was another wonderful weekend, and what unexpectedly splendid weather! I now have great memories of singers I've admired for years, and memories of some new ones I'm just getting to know.

It was a great delight to hear Kat Logan's new group Meteora; they obviously have been doing a lot of hard work together to be able to sound so good, and they are equally strong singers when they lead a song. I look forward to their first recording.

Things are settling down here in Richmond, Virginia. We've shifted over to the hotel where Judy's legislative conference is being held. I can finally sit down at a proper desk for my Netbook and use my mouse! I'm also going through the runny nose phase of a cold I picked up from an interesting singer at Getaway; I really enjoyed talking with him about his songwriting but he probably should have quarantined himself. Luckily the cold didn't get to my throat before Monday and at the pace it's going I should be fine again in a day or two. I have nothing to do here for much of this week but hang around the hotel, explore the neighborhood, take a foray to the Black Swain used bookshop, and plan my song set with Bob Zentz for Sunday and Monday evenings in and about Norfolk.

I'm not sure what capacity this Netbook has for editing photos from Getaway but I may try experimenting. Both Judy and I took hundreds of photos; at least 10% should be keepers.

We also enjoyed the late-night singing but there is a cost in loss of brain cells the next morning. Thanks to everyone, especially the organizers, who made this weekend so enjoyable.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble and JudyB

Many people make that mistake. The fact is, Portland Oregon was named for Portland Maine.

While I was at the Getaway, some woman came up and stuffed what I thought was a dollar bill in my pocket. I knew the woman, but now I can't remember which woman it was. I happened to look in my pocket last night, and found it was a ten-dollar bill she gave me.

Dear, kindly woman, would you please remind me who you are, and tell me why you gave me this generous gift?

Maybe she's just making up for the fact that Kendall's the guy who always gets all the attention at the Getaway, and the rest of us are all jealous....

Thanks for the history, Kendall! I love history. And finding holes in my knowledge, I think it's so interesting when that happens.
By the way, you and your wife were the ones who did the Drop of Nelson's Blood song, right? (I'm new here so still getting to know everyone, and it's a whirl in my head right now.) If so, I wanted to thank you both, because that was one of the weekend's highlights. So very powerful; and after having sung that song (well, the chorus) drunkenly in pubs to learn the story with your all's masterful telling was incredibly moving.

How is it that this weekend just gets better every year? It was so good to have Meteora join the crew - three of my favourite people and what a combination! Getting together with friends, some of whom I only see once a year, makes the Getaway even more special. I wish you would all move to Maine!

Thanks to all who took part in the Mummers Play, I love getting that all together. Good workshops, as usual, and plenty of music all weekend. The whole thing is worth the travelling and we are lucky enough not to have to get back to employment when we come home.

Here's to next year!

I am just back at a computer for the first time after flying home yesterday.

The Getaway grows more magical every year, and it sinks its roots deeper into my soul. Kudos to its FSGW planners and realizers, and thanks so much for welcoming us weary travelers home each year.

I didn't take photos, but I brought home many vivid memories. The workshops and mini-concerts were fabulous as always, the evening concerts brilliant, and the all-night Peace sessions (all three of them) unforgettable -- though, after three nights of hardly any sleep, I am having trouble remembering much of anything.

Here are a few highlights I do seem to recall: Amos was in fine fettle at his mini-concert and as gallant as ever throughout the long weekend. Kendall and Jacqui's performances get more flawless each year and bring more tears. Janie sang quietly this year but was as compelling as ever. Genie remains irrepressible, Jeri poignant and sharp-witted, Joe wholesome and charming, CeltAddict and Mmario wonderful to hang with, Ferrara and Bill D (who hosted Micca and me on Thursday night) sweet and welcoming, Ranger1 strong and funny, Tinker outrageous and profound, RiGGy a great new contribution to the Getaway's Mudcatter contingent, Charley highly entertaining, Rapparee great fun....

Oh, and that Max fella? Totally rocks.

Cheers
Claire, who's falling asleep at the keyboard

I'm still walking on air and humming under my breath. I thought I'd share what I posted on facebook yesterday:

"Today is going to be a day of reflection after the intensity of The Getaway. I already know that attending The Getaway is a need and not a want. After not having been able to go for the last four years, it was like the first gentle rain after a drought. All day long yesterday as I was travelling home, I kept hearing bits and pieces of my friends' singing. Not a bad soundtrack for a journey."

Thanks for singing me home, my friends.

It was a real pleasure to met Riggy this year. I'd heard a lot about him from our old friend Barry Finn. He's a fine singer and I enjoyed chatting with him. I look forward to meeting him again when I'm out in San Francisco next year.

I always enjoy hearing Amos sing, and I even got to hear him lead "Poncho & Lefty." Amos says that now that he's retired he plans to do some serious recording. I hope he does. I want ALL his CDs.

It was great to see so many of the old Getawayers again - Micca, ClairBear, Dave R, Gutbucketeer, MMario, Judy and Dennis, Bob C. and Jennifer, Nancy, Dan (and if I'm omitting any names, it's just that there are quite a few of you) - plus some first-timers such as Charlie and Judy Ipcar.    I'm hoping to continue some of the music and good vibes this week in NC with Janie, Dani, Abby and NM visitors Art and Jenn.    Tinker thrilled and titillated us again with her stirring rendition of a song about a small appliance.   I woke CeltAddict up too early in the AM with my cell alarm (sorry, Janet), but she let me enjoy the skypes with KT anyway.

Things started off thrillingly at Gene and Sandra's Thursday afternoon and night, with great Cajun food and jamming till the wee hours.

The Peace Lodge was magical in the wee hours of the morning, especially Sat. and Sun. AM, with David Scheim wailing away on boogie woogie harp (as well as more mellow tunes), Lucy Goldberg's stirring voice, Donna Fletcher's amazing blues tunes, Max and Amos (when he wasn't resting his voice for his concert) rocking the place with all manner of song, Linda Goodman soothing us with her soft, mellow voice, and, especially the songs where the whole cabin joined in with a bunch of guitars, banjos, percussion (Dani's getting to be a pro on washboard), violas, and voices.    (I asked David if he'd ever put any of that rockin', wailin' harp on CD and he said he'd found that there's a magic that happens sometimes in a setting and group like that, which you can't really capture in a recording. I think he's right. And it really was magical.)

I really enjoyed the Jewish songs workshop, the songwriter circle, the maritime songs workshop and the Woody Guthrie workshop too - where structured music sessions are concerned. But as usual a lot of the magic was spontaneous and all over the grounds.

Concert highlights included Riggy, Micca (yes, I loved the Gladiator song - even though I was beginning to fear my 'puter would run out of recording space), the mummer's play with Max as the lovely Fatima, Lisa Null, Roger (formerly from Baltimore), Amos, Claire, Meteora, and the Chapel Hill group, and the guy (whose name slips me) who sang the Cassowary song.   

I wish I could manage to come to 'Brigadoon' every year, but travel costs make that unlikely, so I'm really glad I was able to come at least one more time.

If you haven't gotten away to the Getaway yet, I strongly recommend doing what you need to, to make it happen.

I'm still on the road in the Old Virginia Lowlands, gearing up for my C. Fox Smith Concerts with Bob Zentz Sunday and Monday in and around Norfolk. I won't begin to seriously edit photos till we get back to Maine. Most likely by then Getaway will be a distant memory.

I always enjoy the Maritime Songs that Dave Diamond coordinates, this time ably assisted by Darriel Day. The Beans are also one of my favorite groups, for their musical arrangements as well as their choice of songs. Fred and Julia of Castlebay I'm of course familiar with from Maine but I love to see them introduced to a new group of people. The Sunday morning Gospel workshops were indeed inspiring, just the thing to begin a new and brighter day, after a hard day's night.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

It was a nice Getaway, and comforting to know that even if I did miss Meteroa and Kendall and Jacqui, these are good friends and I get the chance to hear and sing with them more than the average bear. (In case anybody's wondering, both Kat Logan and Will Brown are featured on the Singing through the Hard Times CD - it's such a joy to see them performing together with Jim.) And Meteora did a wonderful mini-concert.

I have mentioned George Rathbone's fantasy games for kids - also Carly brought art supplies and others brought puzzles - the kids really did have a wonderful time, and Kiran was very proud to have been asked to sing.

I particularly enjoyed hearing the Newlin/LaPrelles and the Bean family. That made the Singing Families workshop a special treat for us. I was pleasantly surprised to see so many folks at the Bird Songs workshop (and no chickens, not even one!). Without any familial bias, I think Nancy King's song was a highlight.

We'd have stayed later on Sunday, but alas, the schedule did not allow. Maybe next year.

Actually, one of the highlights of the weekend was listening to Dan and Geeta singing together at the Birds workshop. Really beautiful!

Not to mention the Brain song! "Brain stem. Brain stem." That was awesome!

I told Geeta she should have brought a Powerpoint presentation for that one.
