I don't know.

We missed last year (had a gig of our own locally), and it was almost a relief not to sleep on the ground and be dirty for three days.

It's never been the same to me since they started doing the strictly regimented camping and making us noisy people camp down in the swamp.

And Kendall has sworn a mighty oath never to return. It won't be anything like the same without him (or Jacqui, one would assume).

I'm closer to 70 than 60 now, and I don't want to sleep on the ground in a tent anymore. I can't afford a new RV, and a cheap old one would just leave a trail of parts from here to Albany and back again. We could get a motel room, but it would be a hassle going back and forth, and it wouldn't really seem like Old Songs.

Mebbe we'll just get up at dawn Saturday, and drive down for a long day.

I donno.

Peter.

"Hell, I'm getting to where I'm even too old to Roger the Jester"

LOL

Midchuck, it won't be the same without you & you "camp review" either"

I'm planning & hoping that this is the one I can make,
It's been yrs (ever since my 2 kids thought it was fun to say up & out without letting us know there whereabouts untill we found them out at 4 in AM) since we were last there, way to long. But this yr is such a great line up.

My real fav's are
Peggy Seeger(it's been maybe 25 yrs since I've caught her in a concert)

Jez Lowe (he was there the last time & my daughter fell in love,,,,, with his songs

Louis Killen (haven't caught him since he re-emigrated (?))

John Roberts & Tony Barrand (well I caught John all the time & I still think he's cute but I don't get to hear him & Tony together any more)

Michael Cooney (I haven't heard him in as long a time as Peggy)"SLAP"

Nanne & Ankie & the Hudson Crew (I don't know about the Hudson Crew but if they're with Nanne & Ankie they have to be top notch)

George Ward (another local that I get to hear often but each time is
such a pleasure that it's better than the last)

Josh White Jr. (having never heard him live, this will be a great 1st)

Now my absolute FAV here is Elizabeth LaPrelle, this young mountain kid (I didn't say goat Sandy:) doesn't have the name recognition as one of her mentors Ginny Hawker nor the exposure & fan base of Hazel Dickens or Alice Gerrard but Elizabeth has in her youth already pasted most of her elders in capturing the old singers styles when it comes to the music of the mountains. She's the singing sister to the Mountain Whippoorwill famed in prose. Over the yrs I've been listening to Elizabeth since she was a mid teen, she may not even be a teen anymore, at different gatherings & I'd say that she alone is worth taking in this festival.
I hope to see you all there

Barry

not be bothered by a few nights sleeping on the ground. ;-)
I concur with Barry's estimation of Elizabeth LaPrelle. She's fabulous.

Don, we missed the G&T last year. Does that mean we have to have two this year? I can bring something if you'd like. I DEFINITELY need another bracelet. I only have 2 and Jacqui has 17 or 24 or something like that.

I may go to the fiddle class on Friday, but there aren't many classes I'm very interested in this year. On the other hand, there are a bunch of performers I look forward to hearing.

Just before we left for California (where we are now, in lovely Carmel) we bought a used pop-up camper. I have always wanted one for Old Songs! We'll be living in it all summer, including at Old Songs! Yay!

And yes, the list of performers is just fantastic this year.

Gin and Tonics are a part of the service Jeri. And Jaqui doesn't have
quite so many as that but there is no excuse for you not to have such aspirations. There are a number of new bracelet and earring designs for you to try on.

It was a bit damp last year. There are some really nasty horseflies in the track infield (Quiet At Night) which disappear when it gets crowded and come back out when the "village" dissipates on Sunday afternoon. I don't remember mosquitoes but they might be more evident out in the Noisy At Night areas. I was really unhappy with the indoor concert on Saturday night, partly because I'm not a fan of crowds in enclosed spaces, and partly because of the behavior of some others who can't seem to figure out the high/low seating thing. If it rains again, I plan to do my own singing in my pop-up!

We've camped for fifteen years in a pop-up and (usually) enjoyed it. I wouldn't want to do a tent, because of the long tradition of wind-driven rain storms. We locate in the "Quiet At Night" area in the track infield. I know some prefer motels and some have "graduated" to motels due to the ravages of time.

It's 10 days from now and I just confirmed my hotel reservation.

No, it won't be the same without the Chucks and Kendall & Jacqui. Instead of the usual 'I'm tired and don't feel like sitting in the audience so I'll visit _____.' I'll listen for music-making (what I used to do before I got old and lazy) or just go back to the hotel. Hell, maybe there will be music in the hotel.

One thing that's a little bittersweet is the fact that I'm eventually going to catch up to Jacqui in the silver bracelet department.

Now... has anyone else bought one of those e-tickets? Supposedly, bar code readers will verify its authenticity. It doesn't have a bar code though, just my name and a number. I'm guessing the readers can deal with numbers, but I'm a little concerned.

Jeri--

I wouldn't worry too much about the e-tickets. It was a couple of years ago that I lost my paper tickets, and showed up at the gate, and sure enough, they had everything on file, right down to what I had paid and what my campsite number was. This year, I'm keeping my paper tickets in a safe place--now if I can only remember where...

There WILL be music making even without Jacqui and Kendall and the Chucks. Just find me. 'course I'm in quiet camping so we'll have to jam in a public area or go bother someone else late at night.

See you there.

Actually, bigchuck (I have to call him that here because if I call him either "Sandy" or "Old Morse," as I usually do, people will be confused as to whom I'm talking about) will be going.

Kris and I decided to hold our big yard sale that weekend. Hope the weather breaks by then.

I hope to be back next year if we can find a good deal on a leetle camper or a van conversion with a back seat that folds down into a bed. I'm no longer flexible enough for tent camping, and staying at a motel for that festival just wouldn't work.
