Joining the conversation late as usual...but that's appropriate in this case!

I arrived at this year's Getaway MUCH later than I was hoping for due to work commitments, but managed to have plenty of fun in the time remaining. Luckily, I had already taken Monday off due to said work commitments, so I was able to make my Sunday night concert debut.

In addition to the already-discussed "Denmark 1943", I sung "Humbug Steamship Companies" (John A. Stone), "Son of a Scoundrel" (Shel Silverstein), "Old Blevins" (Hank Card & Conrad Deisler), "Building Up and Tearing England Down" (Dominic Behan), "Molasses" (Tom Rowe), "Non Barleycorn", "When I Was a Boy" (Frank Hayes), and "Naked Highwayman" (Steve Tilston).

Severn & Rita - Thanks for the kind words re: "Denmark 1943". I've loved that song since the first time I heard it back in the early/mid-90's. Before dusting it off for the Getaway I hadn't performed it in years. Will need to fix that!

Hey! And thanks to all those I talked or sang to or with. Forget the Christmas muzak. If this isn't the most wonderful time of the year, it's probably in the top two or three on the Hit Parade of most attendees. And I HAVE had some rotten Christmases, but I've yet to have a rotten Getaway.
-
I have lovingly watched pairs of cardinals for years, and that song nailed the experience.

Gary's singing of the rescue song was the best I've ever heard him sing ANYTHING on top of it being a gripping song and a much needed history lesson.


Ahhhh, there was prescious little I heard that I didn't enjoy and highlights too many to give them all their due.

Special thanks again to Judy Cook, from who's cassette collection she farmed out for donations the previous year provided me with two great songs for me to sing this year.

Thank you Dani for the ringing endorsement. Since I saw only reference to three songs I sang, with one of those being at the pre-Getaway party, I'll throw out a few more, where I wasn't going to bother before. Besides the aforementioned "Ain't Going To Sea No More" (about destroyers, learned via Oscar Brand), "Wild Boy" (trad. from Will Duke & Dan Quinn) and Mary, Don't You Weep" (trad. from everywhere) , I did "William Riley" (trad. from Mary Jane Queen), "The Emmigrant Song" (by Benji Armstrong), "Waiting For A Train" (Jimmie Rodgers) , "Stagger Lee" (via Archibald, Lloyd Price and Dr. John), "Lifeboat Horses" (with permission from Andrew McKay), Kazoo variations on "The Three Cornered Hat" (inspired by my father's old recording by Paul LaValle & The Cities Service Band Of America) .There were also more turn-of-the-century pop songs, English music hall songs, hymns, spirituals and Broadway tunes than can be listed or remembered from Phil Fox's campfire. And folk, country, nautical and Irish from Gene's Thursday night bash.

Dani, I'll PM you the destroyer song lyrics.

To answer a question from earlier this week, in the final accounting, the scholarship fund actually did okay, and covered our expenses. There was one last-minute scholarship person who never showed, and we rescinded that person's scholarship, which brought things into balance.

LOST AND FOUND ITEMS:

There was lost stuff for Mitzi Quint, David Jones, and George Stephens, which either has been returned or will be mailed/delivered to them.

In addition to that, we have a few dishes from the potluck: an 8 or 9" clear pyrex baking dish, a 9" white bowl with a grey filagree design around the rim, and a white plastic 6" storage dish with green plastic lid.

Beyond the pot-luck items, we have a blue women's size 10 (petite?) corduroy Eddie Bauer jacket, a white "le-Tour-de-France" cap (with yellow streaks in the design), a plastic drinking mug from the Wammies (Washington Area Music Association), and a "Wine Monkey" sock for placing on top of a wine bottle (still in its box--probably meant as a silent auction item).

Anyone wishing to claim (or release) any of the above, or who needs further description of what might be yours, should let me know by sending me an e-mail.

I enjoyed the weekend very much, and there were too many highlights for me to pick one out. Believe it or not, I'm STILL catching up on sleep deficit this weekend.

She did, in fact, pout most adorably upon being told she had to leave Monday morning : ) One more weapon in her Most Powerful Woman arsenal.

I tried the pulling-the-covers-up-over-my-head-and-refusing-to-get-up ploy, with even less success.

A loud second to the thanks. All you FSGW folks who work so hard to make the programming and hospitality work, smoothing out the wrinkles and herding the cats, I am deeply grateful for your efforts. As much as mudcat and fsgw have overlapped over the years, I still feel like a pampered guest in your house at the Getaway, and try to behave just well enough to be permitted to come back : )

I did less singing and more listening and learning this year, and am committed this time in between to not 'putting the book away' until the mists of Brigadoon next part. Those songs swirling around in my head aren't going to sing themselves! Already this morning I found to my delight that the curmudgeonly tomato man at the farmer's market plays at a jam and dance deep out in the country, and has graciously invited me to the next.

Have just today had a few minutes to take out and polish the memories I tucked in my pockets on the way out the camp road. Here are some:

Anything at all that Lani Hermann did. Your humble and grateful servant, madam.

"Hear! Hear!" to Kendall back onstage, in ever-more interesting combinations. That's one of the especial delights of the concerts, the crazy mashups of lovely voices and instruments.

The campfire. Thank you all for making that magic, especially you, Phil Fox. What a delight of 'guilty pleasures'. Scraps of songs were lobbed across the flickering dark, sometimes a spark caught and anonymous voices passed it back and around with gusto. Sometimes it glowed a bit, then winked out. All fun. The best was the two ladies who did the camp song about swimming with lovely hand motions. Anyone remember?

Amos' rendition of "The Basque", especially the command performance AFTER the command performance.

Colin's (?) "Last Trip Home" at the concert... THAT to me is just exactly what a 'folk' song should be.

With Janie, I loved the "Angels Hovering" song... would love to learn that. I was looking around at the cherished ones on our buttons (Sandy Paton accompanied me all weekend) and thinking of the angels sitting among us, singing, at the Gospel workshop. Always a highlight for me!

The Parting Songs on the waterside... could it have been any lovelier? And each song better than the last.

I think it was the Chorus Songs workshop when a young woman (who?) with a lovely soft voice sang "Gum Tree Canoe", which I have since learned and sing unceasingly (and probably annoyingly, to housemates : )

The mummer's play is always a highlight, and it was an honor to take part, especially with the wonderfully spirited kids. LOVED the dragon-with-translator : ) Ernie/John Boehner, I hope I didn't hurt you in my enthusiasm. It's great fun to have a sword AND a horse!

SO many good things. Thank you all for being part of the indescribable magic of this reunion.

Dani

The Getaway just keeps on getting better year after year. Monday morning came much too fast, as usual, and I, for one, really didn't want to leave!

I'd like to say thank you to all the lovely people who volunteered, or were coerced, into taking part in the Mummers Play and who made it such a success once again. Every year I wonder if we will manage to pull together a cast and every year we do it, sometimes by the skin of the teeth but, somehow, it always seems to work so well. It was nice to have the children take part this year - they added a whole new dimension to the play.
I will say a very special thank you to our St George, who took the part despite having real stage fright and who played it so well.

Thank you to Claire for adding harmony to our piece at the Saturday night concert - it made it even more special for both Kendall and myself. Thanks to John Roberts for learning to play Lorena and playing on stage with Kendall during the Sunday evening concert.

There were so many amazing highlights throughout the whole weekend. Lots of wonderful workshops, too many that couldn't be attended because of clashes (where's that cloning workshop!) and some terrific late night sings. Coming together with old friends and getting to know new ones a little better is part and parcel of any Getaway and so it was again this year.

This year was even more special as Kendall has started performing songs on his own, which, for me, is a real move forward.

All in all, I had a great time.

And I definitely need to add to the huzzahs for Murray Callahan.    She has everything--great songs (many not very familiar), delighful voice, perfect comic timing, stage business. etc.    Anybody who missed her miniconcert (should have been at least an hour) missed a wonderful time. But of course since "Betty Boop", I suspect many of you know that.    That must have been in the second half of the Sunday concert---knew I didn't want to leave early; oh well, never again.

At any rate, it's such a crime she does not have any CD's out--I asked her.

Thanks, Kendall for the text of "She Thinks I Steal Cars".    As you have noted no doubt, I wasn't the only one smitten by that song.

It's great that your tastes and accomplishments range so far--from bone-dry Maine humor to the definitive version of "Lorena" to the above song.

The other one of yours I really want to learn--at least the one that pops up immediately--is "$5 Fine for Whining".    That one should be sung at every Getaway--just to spread the message far and wide.

Thank you all for the corrections! And the band played waltzing matilda was incredible, brought spontaneous tears to my eyes; and I have heard that song several times before, never affected me the way it did Saturday night. The Selkie version I heard was sung by Rose in the ballad room, just beautiful. Terry, did I get the Three-legged man name right? That song was hilarious, I have a recording of it, and when you got to "you took the good'un!" we were all cracking up.
