Subject: RE: Get ready for the 2018 FSGW Getaway!
Registration should open in mid-June, with application form in the July-August FSGW Newsletter, and on the FSGW website.

Looking forward to seeing you, Joe! Can't make any promises regarding foliage -- there are a few things beyond our control -- but it just might be very nice indeed!

Hope you can make it, Joanne!

And for those of you still trying to decide whether to join us, here's our list (in no particular order) of invited guests for this year:

The incomparable BRYAN BOWERS will bring his autoharp, guitar, songs, and stories;

DAN and BONNIE MILNER -- he's an expert on traditional Irish music, and she's a member of the Johnson Girls quartet, so knows all about sea songs;

BILL DESTLER, with his beautiful tenor and a lot of banjo expertise;

JON PICKOW, son of Jean Ritchie, bringing lots of family songs and lore;

Blues singers RESA GIBBS and JACKIE MERRITT promise great songs and blues technique;

MELANIE RICE PENLAND and DONNA RAY NORTON (the daughter and cousin of Sheila Kay Adams) will bring us traditional Appalachian songs and stories;

AND -- to top it all off -- the fabulous SALLY ROGERS will be with us again!

Come one, come all!
