Subject: RE: Barry Finn in hospital
I just found this thread. Heard about it in another and had to get right here. I do hope things are going well, Barry. I remember the first Getaway you attended. You and I had exchanged PM's to organize a workshop on Prison Songs having never met face-to-face. When I arrived late Friday night at the dining hall the first thing I heard was your voice ringing out with a sea chantey. The workshop went well. The next year, I think it was, you held a party for the Mudcat at your house. In a blessed moment of insanity, Marge and I drove up from Maryland. That Saturday, I joined a song circle that lasted from 1 PM to 1 AM. So many wonderful singers and players, I barely took time to eat. People wonder from where your music comes. I know it comes from a huge heart secretly hidden in your normal sized body. You are a generous and sensitive person with a lot of love for humankind. I do want you around for many more years. You are in my prayers.
