This should be terrific--it's been wonderful to hear Joe at Whitby singing and talking about the Wallins and others.

I've just been listening to a beautiful rendition of "Crossing the Bar" on Mr. Penland's website, linked above.

Blush, stutter, mumble, I've put South instead of North Carolina in the thread title. Could a kindly elf please sort this out for me?

Geographically embarrassed,

Valmai

We still have day and evening places for this. Some people are coming quite a distance, from Scotland, Hampshire and the Home Counties. I think I've got that bit of geography right.

Valmai, I don't suppose it's possible for someone to pay for and get the cd and booklet by mail? I can't get there from here, and I'd love to learn more about Mr. Penland's songs.

Why do superb things like this always happen at the other end of the country?

An added incentive may be that the evening before, Friday 21st. May, the Copper Family are singing in aid of Christian Aid in Rottingdean. Tickets are £10 and the show starts at 8.00 p.m. Phone 01273 302611 for details.

More information and a map are on the Coppersongs website.

Ray: Ah ... bully your local organisers into doing something similar, or offer to help them do it ... it can't be difficult or we wouldn't be able to do it down here ... Come and see us one day, anyway.

Tootle pip,

Valmai

Thanks Valmai, and the others who did all the organizing work.

Really an excellent time: Joe evoked the world of the singers recorded on collections like 'High Atmosphere', 'Dark Holler' and 'Far in the Mountains' with great warmth, vividness and humour; his own stories and personal connections to those keepers of the old songs made that corner of North Carolina seem very close to Lewes.
