REMINDER ! The March Shanty/Forebitter Session at the Press Room in Portsmouth will be on the 10th as the third Saturday is St. Patrick's Day and there is other music scheduled for that day.

Please pass this reminder on to any you know who don't frequent Mudcat. Thanks -- Tom

Yeah, Tom but Jacqui wants front row seats so she is parking herself on the doodrstep at 4AM Saturday. Hope they don't mind.

Saturday is another definite maybe. Saturdays are filled with errands now that I work 8:30 - 5:30.

Tom....we are off for a wedding at 1:30 pm in Jackson, NH on 3/10.
Probably will not make the Press Room this time, but you never know.
Hope you and Linn are well.
Off to Cameron's in a bit for our Tuesday night sing.
March 24th looks like it will be a fun event...see you there if not sooner.

Brian from the New Gloucester area says he's coming. His Mudcat name is "Doryman" which makes it easy to get him mixed up with the "Adventure" doryman.

Don't think I'll be there - still recovering from the flight on Thursday - it hit me harder this time than usual, so I'm staying home and catching up on sleep.

There were no survivors from the Press Room shanty sing, 'cept for me who was taking a whiz in the bathroom sink. The whole place exploded while I was busy and by the time I made it out through what remained of the bathroom door there were only bits of chorus and refrain splaterdashed from ceiling tiles to floor, and a few broken pieces of crockery in the kitchen area. Very sad!

Until then it was a really promising shanty sing, a great turnout, a few new songs being tried out amidst many old favorites. I launched "Bound Away" by turn of the 20th century sailor-poet Bill Adams(see thread on Old Sailor-Poets) and "Northern City" by Ewan MacColl. Garde by request sang the fine song he composed called "Oh Monomoy" about a fatal lifeboat rescue attempt.

Bruce and Steve were there for a while and regaled us with several songs. Brian (Doryman) was there with his mandolin and led several songs. Mark did a great job on "The Final Trawl." Barbara led "The Merry Willow Tree" and added harmony to Jeri as she led "Fire Down Below." Jeri also did her "Wheel of Time" song which I'd love the words to. Linn sang "Nine or So Times a Night." Emory (?) was there with a huge Anglo concertina and led several songs including "The Leaving of Liverpool." Bob led the Noah's Ark song "A Hundred Years Ago." Rose and her family were there singing up a storm; I particularly liked their rendition of the "Jute Mill Song (ten & Nine)." Barry was there leading "London Julie" and "Roll Down." Tom led among others "The Banks of Newfoundland" and "The Greenland Whale Fisheries." Judy led "A Parting (Old Ship)", "Roll the Old Chariot", and "Haul-Away Joe (aka Itsy Bitsy Spider)".

We managed to recruit a young lady from the bar area to lead a song, and hopefully she will return next month.

I think I also sang "Bully in the Alley," "The Wreck of the Lady Washington" and "Tasman Buster."

Fortunately my banjo survived the blast and I managed to make it home before midnight.

"In the bath room sink"?
I hope you had the decency to be using the women's room & not the men's?
Ya Charlie, explain, I guess I left just in time to catch my concert (Waterson/Carthy)& miss the excitement.

Fess up Charlie, what happened & what did you do?

What happened to the rest of the survivors, no one's reporting in?

So Charley.....were you in the men's room when something hit the fan singing the Wheels of the Bus Go Round and Round when whatever happened....happened? Methane is a terribly explosive gas...hope everything is OK.
We spent 8 hours in the car driving to and fro to a wedding in NH Saturday....see you all soon.
chorus...."May the natural gas burn your ass and blow you all to hell".....name that tune....hint definitely from Eire.

Adventure Doryman-

You were missed but your favorite songs were covered!

As I said above, there were no other survivors. If there were, they would have posted by now. Very sad!

I suppose it might have been methane...

Well - it is so rare not to see a commentary from Bat Goddess and Curmudgeon on the Shanty Sing, I can only conclude that Charlie is being accurate and he (and Judy?) were the only survivors. We shall miss them Tom and Lin so much!!!

I thought 'taking a whiz' was just an English expression.....live and learn....

Bat Goddess has been out straight. Job situation is getting a bit bizarre (more than usual), plus Sunday we were off at the Joe Hickerson house concert.

Saturday was grand fun! A good turnout of people, though some of the regulars weren't there. Good singing, kitchen didn't drop too many plates, etcet etcet.

Martha from Gloucester was there and even sang two songs, including "Classic Yankee Clipper" which I had just been listening to earlier in the week. (Al Cuenen sang it in, I think, November.)

The session already seems like it was months ago; I've had such a full plate since.

Mark Ryer, Pete Hale, Bob Eaton, Emery Hutchins, Bruce MacIntyre, Gardi, Rose & Colin, Jeri, Barry, Charley, Judy, Barbara Benn, Tom and I -- who else? I'll start listening to the tapes tomorrow morning.

Right now I'm late at heading out to work.

Later!
Linn

Oh, but that huge crockery crash that eminated from the kitchen wasn't anyone's imagination!

I wonder...do they plan it? We don't seem to have as many clatters and crashes during the weekly Friday sessions.
