I missed a lot of people - and I think most especially Pauline. I spotted her button Friday evening and kept waiting for it to disappear from the table, but it never did. waaahhhhh! She would have loved the acoustics in the foyer outside the bathrooms (yes, we got treated to live harp and fiddle music outside the "necessaries")
The pub sing was fantastic as always, the parody one as well. the after hour sessions were incredible. John Roberts is always a privilige to hear.
Jeri was present in lyric if not body - and wow is the only statement that comes to mind. We ran the Iditerod with Mike Campbell (coutesy of Gorgeous Gary) and El Greko songs appeared several times. So the absent were present.
I sang (not in this order and probably forgetting a few):
Wild Mountain Thyme (the autumn/winter version)
Mist Cover'd Mountains
We Be WiseMen Three
Boris the Blue Balled Reindeer
Mother's Kiss (by Don Miexner. thanks Don!!!!!!)
Back in the Clydesdale -(Mike Campbell's)
and enough choruses and refrains to be hoarse and happy.
