Only the first 3and a half pages are Getaway, the rest are other things and festivals.

Just to say again how much I enjoyed the whole Getaway experience, even people putting $50 a bottle malt whisky in their coffee ☺ {I forgives ya mate!}
So many lovely people and so much good music, I wish I had come over a few days earlier to acclimatise, as I couldn't stay up long enough to join in the late sessions. Poor old bugger!! I hear you cry; don't I??


Giok.

Most sorry, Tone Deaf Dave, but in one song, here's what I listed: Four Nights Drunk (David Diamond (Tone Deaf Drunk) with Judy Cook. You just can't win, can you!!

(Incidentally, I never heard a less appropriate moniker. Don't know about the 'drunk' part though. lol)

The what I'm listenin' to now is my blues workshop and evrybody soundin' real good...

Thanks "everybody" and thanks Ebbie...

My pleasure, for sure. Which is why I came to the conclusion that this has been my treat. Allan C and I discussed it a bit - he did the same thing (and more than once) a few years ago - and he knows just what I mean when I say that doing it - and listening repeatedly to the recordings - lifted my spirits tremendously. So- you are very welcome.

Oh, the recordings are splendid! I love them! Well, I love the one I've listened to so far. KT, it is Disk #3, and starts with your concert. Oh, it is lovely music.

The incredible thing from my point of view is that, except for the concerts, I missed every single workshop and mini that Ebbie recorded, either because it was too far to walk, I had a conflict, or I had to rest at that hour. Every year we set up all these sessions, and they all look so appealing. Well, if we didn't think they were good, we wouldn't schedule them, would we? So it is painful to miss so many things, as you all know.

Somehow Ebbie managed to give me the experience of the "rest of the Getaway," the parts I really wanted to see but missed for one reason or another. Not all of it, of course! We needed an Ebbie clone or two :-)

But I was on cloud 9 yesterday hearing all that grand music. Thank you, Ebbie. For all your work, and your generous sharing.

I'm going to add a couple comments to the set lists threads if I can locate them. I believe Barry Finn sang "Working on a Building" in the Rousing Gospel. Hunter Jones led "Somebody Touched Me." He and his wife Peggy have been mainstays of the monthly FSGW Gospel Sing for many years, and Hunter has co-led the Getaway Gospel workshop in the past.

It feels like Christmas morning, Ebbie, with a lot more presents still to be unwrapped. (9 CD's! Wow. Treasure trove.)

Nice pics, Jacqui!

I've been listening to the Getaway recordings made by Ebbie. What a delight to once again, hear the voices of the Getaway goers! Today, as I was driving to work, Micca was entertaining me with his version of (I think it's called ) "Just the Way You look Tonight." I was in the car by myself laughing hysterically! I got more than a few odd looks from other drivers. Definitely one of those, "had to be there" times.   Makes me so happy to hear it all again, and grateful to have been a part of it! Thanks so much Ebbie!!

We had about 170-175 attendees at this year's Getaway. (Number approximate because some folks [like Max] never registered, and there were one or two no-shows.) Previous years recently have only gotten to the 130-140 range.

"Songs from the Shower" was one of a number of titles for a series..(0h, 20 or so years) of workshops 'led' by our own Jonathan Eberhart, who loved to wheedle out of folks the songs they used to know and/or sing, in the shower, while washing dishes, as kids riding the back seat...etc. They ranged from kids playground songs to commercials to bits of ballads with strange twists...to silly parodies unique to YOUR family. Jon had a way of making this exercise a bit different every time it was done and it was always ummmmm...'interesting', if not exactly traditional in the purist sense.

   I went to a few of them, always had fun, and didn't ruin my status as a "purist snob" TOO badly! No doubt we could do something with the concept again, whether as part of "Do-wop" or as a general catch-all like Jon did it, though not with his panaché...it's an idea, and we have 11 months or so to ponder....

(remember, at the new camp we are promised hot showers, heated cabins, and shorter, level walks next year! I hope that doesn't lull everyone into dull, conservative complacency....fat chance, huh?)

Last year when there was no hot water, I sang like a bird. Or screeched. This year, we had hot water. Does that have something to do with the fact that they finally segregated us by gender? No guys, now we got hot water and working shower curtains? Hmmmm....

That's "Songs From the Shower," not "Songs in the Shower, Amos!

In about 1956, I was playing "oldies" for a friend's mother and we were singing duets. (The only one I specifically remember, because it was new to me, was "It's a Sin to Tell a Lie.") She said to me, "We think of these songs as classics, but I bet in 20 years or so, the rock and roll songs that you kids are dancing to will be considered classics." A wise lady.
