Very impressive list. Seems like you were just about everywhere.
Just a few additions:
On Saturday right after the concert several more were done a cappella in group that just materialized outside the retreat center door Group included Ferrara, Rose, Colin, and me--and others I can't recall. Stunning highlight for me: Colin's leading of "Steady, boys, walk on/ The horse's day is done..." Don't know what it's called. But I've lpved it for years, heard it done wonderfully at Sidmouth more than once. And, as I told him, Colin's rendition was wonderfully faithful to those at Sidmouth--and could hold its own with any I've heard there.
Also at that session, Mingulay Boat Song was done. Tenting Tonight. And some others I can't recall.
And at the concert Saturday, Jan and I did one we call "The Box", done by Wanda Jackson (sometimes called the 'female Elvis' for her frenetic style.). But our song was not very bouncy.
To be continued, I think----this computer is now under assault by an 11-month old and my break is now over.
