We'll be hanging around the booth the whole bloody time, friends, and you are all welcome any time. Karen K will be with us, too.

Hey, Shaws! We'd love to see you there again, and would hope you could stay around for the after hours song swap in the Old Dutch Barn, which Caroline and I will be hosting on Saturday night. Any rudeness that crops up again should be reported to Andy. We'll be willing to bear the tidings, if no one else wishes to do so. No one should have to put up with rudeness at Old Songs.

We'll look forward to seeing you there, too, Peg. You've been a godsend with your news about Barry. We'd like to thank you in person.

Sandy

What's all this concern about showers? I thought it rained at least once a day at Old Songs. If not, you can always try a dust bath – seems to work for the chickens and the cats.

This sounds like fun; sorta like a pagan gathering with more clothing and less body glitter...and probably a lor less boinking...oh, and no bonfires...

If I end up not going to England in this timeframe (a possibility, based on the H&M crisis and my own housing crisis that jmay arise), I might like to attend.

Anyone from the Boston area going who I could share the ride/travel expenses with? I have camping gear and a brand new gas grill, too.

Got to thinking,with all the Catters going to Old Songs maybe we should arrange a time & place for a mudcat meeting. I know the Folk Legacy booth seems to be the place,but if we could arrange a time,maybe mid weekend, to allow for any catters not able to make the whole weekend.

Just a thought, Any ideas, Any suggestions?

Actually, it's Midchuck that refers to MY granddaughters as "The Wicked Children". Anyhoo, they've been to the last 3 Old Songs, and have made fast friends with some kids that they only see there. Generally, they sort of dissappear shortly after we arrive and we see them only occasionally until Sunday afternoon, when we hunt them down to leave. It's a great place for kids.

When tents transform the camping site, and music lasts till morning,
Good men their soap will soon forget, with smells like jewels adorning.
They stay up late for one more song,
Their odors grow the weekend long,
They do not care what others think,
When all men stink.

I think that, while adult meet up with old friends and make new ones, there's a whole bunch of kids doing the same. I even ran into a late-night singing session some older girls started. They said I was welcome to join as long as I didn't get bossy. I would have been happy to stop in for a bit, but I was in a wandering mood.

Allison's daughter came last year, and I think she had a good time. (Those of us who met her certainly enjoyed her company.)

Isn't it Bigchuck who refers to his offspring as "the wicked children?"

For people who are 18 years old or younger and have some band or orchestra experience, there is something called The Great Groove Band. They begin practice on Fri afternoon and perform on (I believe, based on last year) Sunday. Snail mail and e-mail addrsses for pre-registering name, address and instrument is on the flyer.

Barry, the place is always crawling with house apes.

In our own encampment, we have expect to have bigchuck's two grandgirls, and our friend Dave Guertin's four, at a minimum. And all six are within a couple of years of that age range.

There are quite a few kids' activities, although when they get to that age they'd usually rather go off somewhere and mutter about sex, or what's wrong with adults.

One of my kids has threatened to come, but he's 26, an MIT graduate working for Intel in Portland west, and thought he might fly out, since he's never gotten to one. So I don't know if he'd be that much fun for your kids to play with. Although he might be able to talk about computers with them, which the rest of us probably couldn't.

Peter.

This hasn't anything to do with old fest, but I'm looking for the lyrics to some old songs for my father-in-law. He loves playing music (guitar) and singing old songs. This is a list of songs he gave me, not sure that these are the actual titles. "I wonder how the old folks are at home", "I haven't seen Mary in years", "Will you be loving another man", "I will be gone when you read this last letter of mine"

At this point I'm not sure if I am going or not. I have had one offer from Kendall to travel down with him in his big van. I asked my daughter if she wanted to go and she's thinking about it. As things stand right now I have suffered a minor financial set back and have to wait a little while before I can do anything about going anyway.

The first time I tried camping there, I was invited to share a tent with a friend. I didn't have a camping ticket, but on Friday afternoon managed to talk someone into letting me drive in, unload & take my car back to the parking lot. Since then I've had the full ticket, but with all the cars around, it would probably be nice if more moved their cars back out.

There are 3 women's showers that I know of. One is in the restrooms near the main stage. The other 2 are in a restroom at the end of a white building that just looks like a big garage. I often wake up around 5 or 6, take a shower & then go back for more sleep.

SINS, I'm not sure what you're asking Brett, but it sounds like you just want a place to park your car. The campground isn't a good idea. Aside from needing a vehicle pass to get into the campground, they discourage folks from going in and out. The parking lot isn't farther away from the music than the campground, and may actually be closer. Also, once you get the car in, tents are likely to spring up around it so it's very difficult to get out.

Naemanson,
The website says that you can park two cars on a campsite. Want to share the cost of one? I plan to rent a car and drive up. I have a cousin who lives outside Albany - with a shower. She and her husband play guitar - don't know if they plan to attend Old Songs - it conflicts with an antiques fair. Let me know.

I'd guess that grills are OK, it's only the campfire sort of thing they discourage - big black holes in the infield, danger of grassfires/tentfires. I'd still e-mail them and ask, just to be sure.

I usually don't bring any cooking equipment. The food there is usually quite good, but can be expensive.

I don't know if they're doing it this year, but last year, they tried to avoid having trash receptacles in the campground. Everyone was expected to take their camping trash home with them.

In past years, I've arrived Fri afternoon or early evening and found a campsite easily. I just have one car and a small tent, though - there's ALWAYS room to squeak that in.

JohnB, if you pre-registered for a camping site, you'll get into the campsite all right, but the later you arrive, the less choices you'll have on where to set up camp. Dharmabum, if the Old Songs website doesn't answer the question about charcoal grills, I'd e-mail them to check.

Jeri --

I too have a solar shower with an enclosure, but there's never any place to hang it - no trees nearby - so I leave it home!!

the "hot" showers are best found at the opposite end of the campground -- farthest from the music - at the end of the "quiet at night" section.

When we camp we tend to camp in the noisy at night section. These days we put up a screen tent.

and it always rains, well almost always -- i remember one year (or was it two?) when it didn't rain.
