Subject: Musical Bucket List

I had the immense pleasure of seeing Gordon Bok live in concert last year, and got to cross off a big item on my musical bucket list. (And he definitely deserved to be on the list!)

Do you have a musical bucket list? Someone you want to see, or play with, or a place you want to play, etc? Have you managed to cross some items off, particularly recently?

YOU! (I mean that!)

Most any Mudcatter would be great to get to see, hear (Justa Picker!), maybe play with. As far as famous people? Jean Ritchie, Jean Redpath, and a few others.

Played in public without getting run out of town on a rail in November and December, once each.

Still on the list, having fun at it without the stage fright. Starting out at 61 isn't easy.

Past that, I agree with Kat.

Well, weather permitting, tonight we're off to see John Kelly, who I've been looking forward to seeing for a while now by reputation alone. I say weather permitting but it's fine for us as we live on the same street as the folk club - I just hope John can make it!

Otherwise - Rene Zosso & Anne Osnowycz! My musical heroes, mentors & inspiration these 30 years and more, and I've never seen them though a mutual friend took some footage at a concert a couple of years back, which I uploaded onto YouTube with Rene & Anne's permission.


There's gey few an they're a deid

Isn't that the truth? What I wouldn't give to see Peter Bellamy again, or Ian Curtis, or Sun Ra, or Don Cherry, or....

Still, leaving the dead to bury the dead, I suppose the moral is to make the most of the living whilst we have the chance, in which case I might rejoice every time I go along to a singaround or a session at the preciousness of just being there. As Jon Harvison said, live each sweet second as if it's your last...

This is a great thread, and I will be pondering it. Scanning the threads, it occurs to me that if I had already had a musical bucket list, Mudcat would have helped check of most of it already! To wit, a small sample:

- meet in person some of the most amazing people and musicians from around the world, dedicated to a wide variety of folk traditions, and spend a weekend singing in the woods with them. Check, check, check.
- belt out choruses with Theresa Tooley and Barry Finn. together. check.
- sit with Kendall Morse and Sandy Paton while they made each other cry singing lovely old hobo songs. check.
- sing camp songs around a 'campfire' with Caroline Paton and Joe Offer. check.
- sing in front of people without throwing up. check.
- sit on a bench under a tree and sing for Kendall. without throwing up. check.
- see Mick in his underwear. check. (oops, was that my outside voice?!)

My project for today is to work on my future list! Thanks!
