Subject: RE: BS: Mudcatters at Winfield, KS?

When I saw your name there, I thought you might be saying that you were planning on being there. However, Jo_77 is going to be there, at least for a day. It may well be that I will get to meet a Mudcat after all.

Bill D says that the Festival has changed a great deal. This will be the first festival I've gone to since Indian Neck (Conn.) several decades ago. Fiddler Beers was there, as were Judy Collins, and Gary Davis but it wasn't a concert, it was jsut people sitting down and playing together so Gary Davis and Fiddler Beers might well have traded songs. Robert Shelton came, too. He had the room nect to mine in the old seaside hotel we rented for the Festival. I think I don't suppose Winfield will be like that but I wouldn't expect it to be.

Tonight I started packing. I'm making the trip on my motorcycle so packing is an exercise is preparation and difficult choices. Hmmm, those seem to be useful in other pursuits, too. It's about an 1,800 mile trip out there and then a little longer on the way back because I'll be heading for Red Oak, Iowa. I don't suppose there are any Mudcatters there. Are there?

I'll keep checking this thread to see if anyone else is going.
