Andrew "Crane Driver" McKay and "Sussex" Carole Etherton are on their travels again. We're in Sydney, Australia from 10th to 19th January, primarily for family reasons but hoping to meet up with some OzCatters for music and chat at some point. Then we're in the Washington (DC) area of USA until 28th. We're doing an informal 'House Concert' for FSGW at Rita Ferrara's on Monday 21st, then off to the Folk Club in Richmond, VA for Saturday 26th, with possibly other things along the way. Should be a great time. We're looking forward to meeting old friends and new on our travels.

Sadly we won't be able to include Maine this time - we'd need extra time off for that, and the day jobs won't allow. We are seriously planning to be back in October for the Getaway, and a trip up to Maine again either before or after would be wonderful - we so much enjoyed ourselves last time.

I'll send you some e-mail addresses via regular e-mail.

And we'll alert them as well, if you like.

G'day Andrew & Carole,

I'm afraid the Sydney scene may be a bit quiet ... mid-summer and school holidays tend to bring incovenient realism to bear of the folkies! As well, many Sydneysiders will at the Illawarra Folk Festival, down south at Bulli - full festival from Thursday 17 to Sunday 20 January - although those still slaving will probably only make it from Friday evening to Sunday.

G'day JennyO,

I reckon we can fit in with a second weekend event ... I'll just have to make sure I don't need to beat the Monday Night Session Mob into shape for Bulli ... by then ...

It would be nice to try to snag Ralph Pride along to the event - as long as he isn't off at a gig - with his Triumph Duet (aka 'Crane Duet' ... and poor old Butterworth, whose name is on the patent, gets completely forgotten by everyone!)

Bob

Yes, Sandra, You're right about the Forties. But apart from the Bulli weekend, the one before is the only other one they are going to be here. I've looked at my past PMs and they mentioned what you said to me back in September in a PM. If that is still the case, that doesn't leave us with any choice at all apart from midweek, and I don't think that is going to suit many people. So it's either Bulli weekend or midweek. Neither seems very satisfactory to me. Maybe Friday the 11th?

Andrew and Carole, we need some more input from you.

nuffin' the Craig will be travelling to Melbourne, leaving Sydney 12th January & even tho I'm not a sailor & know nuffin' about preparing Tall Ships for sailing, I can't see it being available for a session in the days before they leave.

And as Andrew & Carole leave Sydney Sat 19th, they don't have many days in Sydney when we are all present.

I'll be leaving for Bulli on Thursday, and I assume JennieG & Himself will as they did last year, & Bob appears to be going the same day. I believe JennyO is not going.

Looks like a session at someone's place on Thurs 10 or maybe Fri 11th, depending on when they plan to set out for Bateman's Bay - according to a map, Bateman's Bay is about 4 hours south of Sydney.

Charley, Bateman's Bay is a very nice place. It is on the Clyde River where the river empties into the Pacific Ocean (or whatever it's called that far south) and is surrounded by lovely south coast bushland, spotted gum trees and cycads. Himself and I have caravanned there a couple of times.

Perhaps on your next visit to Oz....?

Hi again all - thanks for your good wishes and suggestions.

We get into Sydney about 9 am on Thursday 10th, and plan to head for Batemans on Saturday 12th, so the Friday night is a real possibility. My parents' 60th anniversary event is on the Sunday - my mother was 90 in September and Dad will be 96 in February, so it's going to be a really special event. We're booked in at Batemans over Monday night, then intend to return to Sydney before flying to Washington on Saturday 19th. So anything that fits into that schedule suits us fine. Sorry we can't be more flexible, blame my parents - most inconsiderate of them to get married in January!!

Maybe we'll have to see you in installments during the week? Whatever works.

Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible.

OK - so staff at Heathrow have just announced a 24 hour strike on January 7th - the day before we're due to fly out. What effect will this have on our travel plans? Who knows. When will we get to Sydney? No idea. My temporal lobes are disoriented already, and we haven't left yet. Hopefully the dispute will be settled before the strike date. If not, we can only hope our flight isn't pushed back too much. We're due into Sydney about 8am Thursday, so we should still be there for Friday night whatever happens.

Our luggage will probably be in San Diego by then, of course.

Andrew and Carole,

I did keep an eye on possiblities for Canberra, but it is holiday season for all venues. You would be welcome to drop in on the Shiny Bums rehearsal on any Monday evening if passing, and you can stay at my place anytime if that helps with your logistic options - I'll PM details.

Folks - we saw them during the Shiny Bum UK Tour, and they do really fun stuff!

The ones I would love you to catch up with are the Poms From Oz (Pomeroys) but they live in Townsville which is a long walk. You have repertoire interests in common. Hope you catch up with them here or there sometime - they also tour UK.

Come over again - for longer.

Charlie - for Batemans Bay turn east from Canberra until you get wet. Sorry to miss you and the James Craig. There was just too much going on, including losing home email for a month. I was there in spirit.

Cheers, Chris

Andrew and Carole-

I'm still smarting from the disfunctional airlines we had to put up with, but they got our bodies from place to place eventually. It was just my banjo that got displaced all too frequently.

I do hope things get settled so that you can board your flight, take your sleeping pills, and sleep for 12 hours or so.

Be sure to take out your concertina for show and tell, so the security folks are not unduly alarmed when they view its little springs and buttons on their screen.

I expect that you won't be 'Queenslandering'... :-)

I'll just mention here as a bit of thread drift, as its not worth overexciting everyone yet, that I am currently negotiating with a Primary School Principal & P&C Committee about helping setup a small festival as a P&C fundraiser later in the year. If it does get a go on, it will be somewhat different... one of the main hassles yet is the dreaded insurance game...

It'll be in Toowoomba if it gets away...

Cheers Mary & Terry we are really looking forward to that gig and the one in Richmond and we will have fun (even if the audience don't). We're hoping that the airport strike the day before we set off won't be too much of a problem but we'll weather any storm & darken many a doorstep on the way if needs be (watch out Chanteyranger).

We're so looking forward to seeing Bill & Rita (Ferrara) again & our friends in the Washington area for our House Concert on Monday 21 January. Thank you to you both for hosting us. Here's to a great evening of friendship, song, chorus & harmony in a wonderfully intimate setting. Bill - I'm hoping you still have that beautifully mellow toned bass recorder I may put it to good use!

And to you all in Oz we really can't wait to meet you all again.
Jenny O, John, Sandra, Bob, Jennie G et al & Chris (Shiny Bum) in Canberra if we can get there. Any news of Rymin Simon & Freda?

maybe we can visit Simon when you have a spare day in your busy touristing schedule!

I was supposed to visit him on Boxing day but rail trackwork put an end to that! Dunno why the rail authorities decided to start the 5 days of urgent trackwork on Boxing day, the day when lotsa' folks head off for holidays. They could have started on 27th & still finished by New Years eve, I suppose they decided most folks have cars.

freda moved house yesterday - she has been technically homeless for months living out of suitcases in a friend's spare room while The Builders ripped apart her place. We might see her on Mudcat more regularly when she unpacks her computer.

It's a 3 hour drive to Canberra from Sydney, but a much shorter trip from Batemans Bay.

G'day JennyO,

I gather the final decision is to hold the Barbie on Friday 11th January.

I'll get over to that ... and I've checked with Ralph Pride - and he isn't doing a gig that night ... so he should be along - with his Triumph Duet (which he plays when he's not playing fiddle ... or mandolin ... or guitar ... or ukulele ... or bones ... or mouth-organ ... or whistle ... or doing the sound-mixing ... or whatever else he does to fill his idle hours!).

Yes, the BBQ and session here is definitely happening on Friday night - starts officially around 6, but any folks who don't have to work that day are welcome to come earlier. Freda and Sandra in Sydney will be here, and Rhymin' Simon is hoping to make it too - depending on how his back is.

Only trouble is, I sent Andrew and Carole a PM over a week ago, including an answer to a question asking how to get to our place, cos they'd forgotten since last time. They haven't replied and I don't have any other contact details for them. Bob or anybody else, do you know of any other contact details? They must be on their way here by now if the plane is landing tomorrow morning.

Also, I've been talking to Margaret Walters, who has now gone away with the Forties and John to Cygnet, and her house will be empty till the 21st and I have a key. Andrew and Carole could stay there, and/or we could have another session there on one of the days next week they are still here - maybe next Thursday for those who haven't already gone to Bulli. John will be back by then, so at least they could catch up with him, and anyone else who didn't make it to the BBQ.

drop bears & wombats were mentioned!

Fortunately I had given JennieG a notepad decorated with a drawing of a wombat so the verbal descriptions of this strange animal could be confirmed. Unfortunately I have recently lost the postcard of the dropbear, not that I would have been carrying it, but I could have sent it to them!

The Mudcat pic was taken by Himself who refused to be part of it cos as he said he's not a member. We said it doesn't matter cos everyone knows you so you need to be in the pic but he preferred to take the pic!

Lots of good food was eaten, there was lots of chat & we sang a few songs & had a great evening. There will be another session next week after Andrew & Carole visit their family & the Canberra mob, but some of us will be at bulli so will miss it, phooey.

But I have a new Mudcatter CD woth a pair of characters on the front & I'm looking forward to playing it tomorrow (tomorrow? - later today!)

A few years ago we had a young wombat at the National Folk Festival!

He was an orphan & was there with his carer & attracted a lot of attention. I was lucky enough to have custody of him for a short time (probably cos I was the nearest adult) while she attended to some other business. My job was to watch him & head him off if he tried to get off the grass onto the road & I had lots of eager young helpers! And older helpers, too. One of the MCs reminded his audience that wildlife carers don't get any payment for looking after injured animals so she ended up with a cup full of notes & coins.

wombat of similar size!

Check Google images if you want more pics. They are cute, but their main characteristic is going where they want to & staying there. Friends have had great difficulty driving down their unpaved road when the adult wombats are standing in the middle of the road.

G'day SINS and Sandra,

I'm not sure what this says about the rear view of myself (some years back ...) - or just the back view of my standard footwear, good Tasmanian Blundstone brown 'lastic-sided boots...

Some years back I went to the Western Plains Open Zoo, in Dubbo (some 3 hours drive west of Sydney. I was with my sister-in-law and my two nephews, so we had gone through the "Friendship Farm" - where small, friendly animals are available to be cuddled - or, at least, seen as close (but safe) range. As we left and headed of for another area of "un-fenced animals" (all the enclosures use "ha-has" - perimeter diches, which may, if necessary have effective fences - but out of sight) I noticed an occasional bumping sensation at my heels. I stopped and found that a very young wombat was intently walking straight behind my Blundstones ... which, presumably, evoked the back view of his Mum!

We had to backtrack to the "Friendship Farm" - and locate a keeper. "Excuse me - but I think this is yours!" At which I had to step aside so the keeper could see that the rather talented escapologist wombat had made another break ... He was then gathered up and put back into a more secure enclosure - until they patched up the latest escape route.

Regards,

Bob

We had a lovely time on Friday night. The weather was perfect, and everyone was pretty laid back - I know I was. Good thing it wasn't today - it's been really hot for the last few hours and now there is a thunderstorm brewing. Everything's been put away so I don't care - in fact I like a good thunderstorm.

I mentioned this on the night, and I'll be sending an email out - we are going to have another session on Thursday night when Andrew and Carole are back from Canberra. This time it's going to be at Margaret Walters' place in Redfern/Darlington.

John will be back from Cygnet by then, so they will have a chance to catch up with him and anybody else who couldn't make it on Friday - not to mention a lot of us who are coming back for more. We'll kick off around 8 with BYO drinks and nibbles, and lots of music! So if you haven't gone to Bulli, and would like to spend some time with a pair of delightful entertaining people, please come. (Actually I reckon we're all pretty delightful and entertaining ;-)) Anyone not on my email list can PM me for details.

G'day Carole,

Did you get to see them close enough together to see just how closely they compare?

A most improbable fact is that the koala is, in fact, a "re-arborialised" wombat. The telling point is that both the wombat and the koala have backward-facing pouches, for their developing young. This feature is indicative of a ground-burrowing development (so the excavated dirt doesn't end up smothering junior in the pouch!).

At some point, an ancestral koala decided the browsing was better up a gum tree - and the digging claws were strong enough to get an animal of near-wombat bulk up the trunk of the gum tree. (Hence the legend of drop-bears!).

Regards,

Bob

A wonderful night. Andrew & Carole stake out their own little corner of the world with both original and non-original material sung well with a sense of history and location and a knack for both a good chorus and novel, non-standard plot lines. The originals include some of the best nautical songs I've heard written in recent years, and of course, the fact that nobody ever mentions Wales much over here makes the learning of the stories all the fresher for it for some of us. A nice trip to some unfamilliar ground that we all came out of much the better for having taken.

.....arrived USA totally confused by time & date - offered breakfast on aeroplanes three times in one day!

A BIG thank you from us both to Rita and Bill for all the hospitality they gave us during our time in the Washington area. It was wonderful to catch up with so many friends and meet new people. We thoroughly enjoyed doing the House Concert at Rita & Bill's and we're glad to know that it was enjoyed by so many people.

We had a great time at the Shanty sing at Stacey's - I think Vince's pictures sum up the atmosphere there really well..

We've arrived at Mary's in Virginia - my knuckles are still white fom driving on the Capital Beltway!

We had a great time last night at the Irish Pub watching Mary's gig ....our turn there tonight. We're looking forward to our concert at the Richmond Folk Club...and then it will be home to the day jobs (ugh). It would be good to play hookie though & take a plane to Boston instead but we'll (hopefully) catch up with you, Barry & the Mainiacs at the Getaway in October.

Now I'm off for some retail therapy this morning...

A direct link to the sing at Stacy's, in case you didn't see it in Vince's main page.

(Why, even *I* am in some...and that's a rarity, as I am usually behind the camera)

"...my knuckles are still white from driving on the Capital Beltway!"

Yes...I believe the conversion table says 20 minutes on the beltway = 1 week off your life span....2 weeks in Rush Hour.

Latest reports say a Full House at Dublins in Mechanicsville , and they got the Richmond audience singing choruses as though they were in a UK Folk Club !!

Yes, Dublin was definitely in the green, and the owner was very happy.

The Richmond audience was very welcoming, and joined us on the choruses. Everyone seemed to enjoy both evenings - we certainly did.

Now it's just a matter of getting back home and re-entering our normal life - back to the day-job . . . ;-{

It's been a great trip, our thanks to everyone we've met along the way who helped make it so. Perhaps we'll get the chance to do it again some day!!

Yes I think their sojourn in Virginia was very successful - had an e-mail this morning from someone letting us know how much they'd enjoyed the songs and stories at the Richmond Folk Music concert. They got to see a little bit of Virginia too - we managed a quick trip to Jamestown. Hopefully they'll be back in this neck of the woods again so they can see more!
