Thread Name: Why can't we be friends here too? (FSGW)
Subject: RE: Why can't we be friends here too?
Having just attended the Getaway as part of the mudcat contingent, I would have to agree with Bill D's stance. If the rest of the FSGW events even slightly mirror the Getaway, it was a sharing of music for all, not a venue for promoting one's own. It was a sharing of voices and instruments, not a venue for promoting one's own. Apologies for the drift in thought from the original thread. The FSGW and the Getaway have been in existence 35 years and to start a group with the same immediate results would be whistling in the wind. It takes many years and a tremendous amount of work to achieve what they have. I would think that before you undertake the task to start a similar type of group, you would want to decide the group's objectives and philosophy and go from there ... moonchild
