Subject: RE: Barry Finn/Charley Noble - NYC 4/22
Barry and I are back in NH and ME respectively after a wonderful week of singing and meeting old and new friends.
The Gloucester folks, Peter and Joanne, took us down to where the schooner Adventure was being rebuilt and they are really doing a fine job. We crawled all over the hull, tried out its acoustics, and would love to be there when she's re-launched the end of May. She's a really large schooner, easily as large as the Blue Nose, with a long history as a working boat going back to the 1920's. Capt. Jim Sharp used to run her a few years back on windjammer cruises in Penobscot Bay when I last was aboard her.
Thanks again to everyone who made our week so rich.
Next, it's on to the Mystic Sea Music Festival!
