Subject: RE: Barry Finn/Charley Noble - NYC 4/22
Sorry about the brief post above. We kind of hit the ground running when we swung into New London. Don Seneti's band has been playing at the Griswald Inn in neighboring Essex for years and this was to be their last night there. The place was packed with familiar faces and Don and his friends were in full voice, backed up with tuba, fiddle, some strange mandoline rigged guitar, and Irish drums. Former members of their band came up to lead a song or two, folks were dancing on the table tops or swinging from the chandeliers, and the closing songs extended the session for an hour or so. Barry and I got to add our voices to the closing choruses.
Our host n New London has kindly provided us with staff guest passes so Barry and I can prowl the Seaport Museum at leisure today before heading up to Gloucester in the afternoon. We'll plan to arrive at Peter and Joanne's place in Gloucester on or about 5 pm as instructed. The singing session there is supposed to be at the Schooner Pub this evening and everyone is encouraged to join us.
