Thank you, MMario; that does sound like a reasonable project. I love taking them so am always glad to have something to do with them.
A few more up today. I feel as if I am just trickling them in but I see by last year's thread that it was early July too....

No offense taken! I was just wincing at the thought of how "new" I might have looked in that scenario. In fact I learned more about traditional accompaniment in that hour with Ken and Craig than I could've imagined. What a nice way to wrap up the festival.

And your photos are *gorgeous*. Particularly the scenes of the seaport at sunset and sunrise -- you should have a gallery show!

I am sorry if you are wounded, Timbrel, and yes, we know each other. I was just abbreviating for the sake of picturing the moment. Of course in full it should say, "a [guitar] player new to that style of play," though in my defense it did specify that it was just so you could accompany them. I am fortunate enough to have heard you sing and play many a time. I was also glad you sang Phil Ochs' "Pleasures of the Harbor" again that night too. And is that not a new guitar? (Maybe you could pretend "new guitar player" could also be worded "player of a new guitar"...)

My wounded pride compels me to respond to this, CeltAddict:

"Watching and listening as Craig Edwards, the Festival director, who had every reason to be exhausted, sitting at midnight Sunday night giving a patient guitar lesson to a new player so she could accompany his fiddle and Ken Sweeney's squeezebox."

That was a terrific session Sunday night. I just have to protest that I'm not a new player, although I can see how it might have looked that way. I've been a guitar player for 20 years in a variety of styles. But I am new to accompanying traditional tunes on the guitar, which is a strict and demanding style that's very different from most folk guitar playing. Craig, Ken, and Carl T. spent some time teaching me a few new tunes and techniques that night so that they could have backup for their tunes.

I started learning to play tunes because there's a new Monday night session in Mystic for old-time players. It's into its third month and has been really successful and well recieved. There are usually a couple of fiddles (including Craig's), banjo, mandolin, and guitar; and on occasion, even the rub board, washtub bass, and ukelele have made their appearance.

Anyway, enjoyed the songs and was glad to meet you and Bryan. And if you will kindly give me some names, I will ask Pene Azul to redo the photo caption, and will call you whatever you want.
Including calling on you for a song at any opportunity.

We opened for the guys who started "Talk Like A Pirate Day" this weekend at a benefit for a local non-profit. If they pay us enough, or we like the cause enough, we *MIGHT* be convinced to pretend we're pirates...

We just don't want the word gettin' out. If'n it does, we'll be cuttin' yer throats for gills to breath with when we throws ye overboard! Hargh! ;)

We're just goodhearted, amiable, honest guys. Honest.

...and we all have shirts that say "Pirates *ARE* the new Monkeys". Only the Griffer brought his.

Hi folks,
I've not wandered around this part o Mudcat before (last night), so don't know who everyone is, so please bear with me. . .

Celtadict: yes,"Pirates are the new Monkeys" it's a long story involving our first newspaper interview in the SF Weekly-it's online.

MMario: Nope, Black T with white letters=confusion, but you can see my face in the event photos listed as "SaltyWalt & the Rattlin' Ratlines".

>"what's wrong with being pegged as pirates?
There are few venues out here that are interested in "Traditional Music". When I tell people we sing "seamusic" or "chanteys" they usually don't get it and eventually settle on "Pirate Music" and start Yarrin' away at us. It makes it harder to be taken seriously.
Also,there's a group out here we'd rather not be confused with.
Not that we can't Yarr and YoHo with the best O 'em. ;)

Charlie: Thanks for asking! For reasons beyond my ken, it took us ALL DAY to fly back to the west coast, INCLUDING the time change!
It was a hair arduous, but we're all well thanks!
-Walter

Hey Walt! Good to hear from you! I was informed by someone who purported to know the name of your group, which seemed to fit with the (too few) songs we heard. So who are you really? (And for that matter, what's wrong with being pegged as pirates? And did the shirt say "Pirates are the new Monkeys" or "Monkeys are the new Pirates"? Or was that Monkees?)(she queried, sidling toward the plank)
Thanks, Jerry, for the words.

Judy,

Here are the lyrics to "Hard to Say Goodbye" (my title for the song Celtaddict calls No Consolation). When I get around to doing another CD of my own stuff (next year, maybe?), I'll include this.

HARD TO SAY GOODBYE (tune based on "Leave Her, Johnny")
by Jerry Bryant
Copyright 1996

Oh the hour was late and the moon was high yet still we did not depart,
For the glow of pleasant company warmed each and every heart.
"Just one more song," said someone, as the landlord doused the light,
So we sent a final chorus ringing out into the night.

Chorus
It is no consolation to know that time must fly;
It's still very hard, when the hour comes, to have to say goodbye.

"Why must you go?" the young wife says, and tears are in her eyes.
"To build a better life for us," he tenderly replies.
Together they have talked of this for many a long day,
And still she cries when he, at last, is finally on his way.

Chorus

Two brothers stood upon the dock not knowing what to say,
For one was going to board a ship while the other one would stay.
One had made the choice to travel out into the world alone,
While the other one chose family, security and home.

Chorus

When the news arrived from far away that our old friend was gone,
We did not call it tragedy to hear he'd traveled on.
For his life had been a long one, with friends and pleasure filled;
Yet still a stone was in our hearts to think his voice was stilled.

Chorus


Written for Stan Hugill's memorial service at the 1992 Mystic Sea Music Festival.

Jerry

Sure, Charley, the camera lies all the time; sometimes it makes people look better than they do in person too! But yes, many people's smiles when they are singing tend to be fleeting, and the baseline expression serious with concentration, so I have often had the experience of watching someone I know smiles and never catching a smile.
Judy, Jerry wrote the words to "No Consolation" after Stan died (can it really be over a decade ago?) and sang it at the memorial service for Stan at the Seaport the first festival after. It is set to a modification of "Leave Her, Johnny," an eminently suitable choice of melody, not only as a farewell shanty but as the song Stan sang to close the Festival at Mystic for many years. In a way, the closing at
Mystic contains two songs in memory, as Don started singing "Maui"
in his memory since he sang it so often himself.
I do not know if he has sung it much since. The chorus goes,
    It is no consolation,
    To know that time must fly.
    It's still very hard, when the hour comes,
    To have to say good-bye.
I believe I do have all the words around somewhere, or you might PM Jerry (or I can) and ask if he wishes to post them or to supply them individually.

Celtaddict-

I really enjoyed your close-up images of people leading songs at the late night singing sessions, an incredibly difficult situation to photograph in. You never know where the next song is coming from and the lighting is marginal.

Do I actually look that serious leading songs? I suppose I do. A camera couldn't lie...

One question - as I wasn't able to get to the green at the right moment (too many stages, too little time...) - what was "Jerry Bryant's tribute to Stan Hugill, ''No Consolation'"? Or should I quiz JWB about that? Don't remember hearing anything along those lines elsewhere over the weekend.

Marc,
I found the session interesting - I hadn't known anything about fife and drum corps before, though I did know that not all ships used shanties. I liked the different approaches of the two groups, and the way you used them to compare techniques. And I was rather amazed that the joint performance sounded so smooth - it's a lot harder to quietly hum along on a joint number you don't usually do quite that way when you're playing a fife or a drum! It sounds as if there are enough groups in the area that a slightly different perspective with a couple of different groups would work well in a year or two without being repetitive.

I'd also like to suggest something with the teenage group that sang at the open mike - they had a name like ChanteyTeens or something. Hmm - maybe something about different ways teenagers are adopting traditional music - there was a definite difference in appearance between the Nutmeg Corps and the ChanteyTeens, but both seemed to have put a lot of effort into what they did. And just last night my teenage niece was telling us that she and her mother often listened to Roll & Go's CD in the car as an acceptable compromise between her rap music and her mother's golden oldies. Just a thought....

I have a couple of other photos of the Nutmeg Fife & Drum Corps I could e-mail if you're interested. The other ones of the Ancient Mariners didn't come out as well as their faces were in shadow from where I was. I didn't get a picture of the whole group - don't have a wide angle lens and was afraid if I went far enough from the sound board to get a good shot, you could make it to the mike and start talking faster than I could make it back to the sound board to turn on the sound! :)

I'd say do it again, even though I'm not a fife and drum corp person. Great job moderating, especially relating fife and drum to sea music. It was great to have more than one corp, as has happened in the past. Interesting as well to see how different corps play the same song! And, the arrival at the main stage for them final concert was a nice touch.

Great Stuff. THank you. Isn't Mystic Seaport a Beautiful place without the people. It is a great place to work, but its early in the morning and late in the evening that I really feel lucky. Most people never get to see that side. BY the way, I'd like an oppinion on something. Did anyone here catch any of the fife & drum workshop at the northend stage on sunday? Did anyone find it at all interesting? The performers had a blast, now I'm curious if none fife & drum people found it of any interest at all. Is it worth doing another some year in the future?

He was one of the first to sing and he managed to cut through all the confusion of people talking to each other, milling around, and breaking bottles over each other's heads (well, no, that didn't really happen). And I've never heard so many verses. What a powerful voice!

And, yes, Jerry Bryant's rendition of "Hexagon Zombies" was superb!

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

A more appropriate name for his duo would be "The FlexTradition." BTW, I second the motion, very nice photos, JudyB.
