Well, we're used to rough camping with no power, so it's not an issue. Just wondered if we would have a haven with a/c respite in case of a major heat wave. I think the a/c needs 30 amp. Come to think of it, I seem to remember Kendall and Jacqui coming into our camper for some a/c a few years ago...

Noreen,

Jeri is only having fun at my expense. She knows Cindy and I don't travel dry. And we discovered a few years ago at Old Songs that a large slice of watermelon in the glass along with the Gin and Tonic and Lime makes for a very good drink.

You get the camper Jeri, I'll stick with a B&B, Best Western, Motel 6....which ever has a private shower.

I started this thread, oops, sorry it said GUEST.

My friend Hannah and I are coming for the day, probably will stay somewhat late for the evening singing festivities. (My husband is gonna drop us off and pick us up). She's a wonderful singer who grew up in a travelling singing family (the Dunns) in England. I live just up the road in Albany so am not going to camp this year; but if any of you want a shower, feel free to come to my house, it's only about a 20 minute drive (certainly less time than waiting in line at the truck).

Woodchucks, sorry not to see you this year but many congrats on that great gig!

I look forward to hearing Elizabeth Laprelle; Barry Finn raved about her and thought I would like her singing very much. Of course Old Songs will not be the same without Barry.

Brian Peters did a spectacular job in his session, singing & explaining the ballads, & had a very good turn-out. I bought the cd, Brian!

This afternoon (Sunday), there will be sessions to remember Mike Seeger & Sandy Paton. Be with us in spirit, folks.

Typos and all! It was a lovely festival- I thought I was going to immerse myself in singing, and I did get to a couple of great singing workshops, but the real delight was re-kindling my love of the squeeze box- what a line-up of concertinists and accordion players there was! Brian Peters, John Roberts, Jody Kruskal, the amazing Vitaliy Bezrodnov on the Russian Bayan accordion- what a time it was!

I missed the ballad workshop with Elizabeth LaPrelle and Tim Erikson, and I bet it kicked ass. I missed the workshop for Sandy, because I was at James Keelaghan, and somehow, I thought Sandy's started when James's was over, but the latter was longer than that. Wonderful performance though, and he gave a great songwriting workshop.

Get this: I also FINALLY met Ron Olesko. I sort of recognized him and he was in a car with NJ plates trying to escape the hotel parking lot, so I asked. Yep, it was Ron.

I spent a lot of time in Don Meixner's booth, and came home with more silver. Jacqui C and I compared bracelets, and it was the weirdest thing: we'd both picked out the same bracelets, other than the 'hammered' one. Hers is rounded and mine is flat. The other three are exact matches. I think I need therapy.

Tami, Jacqui has your necklace.

And I have to work tomorrow. Sucks.

My favorite performer was definitely Elizabeth LaPrelle. Her voice is truly a gift and she is a joy to hear. There was the usual abundance of wonderful music all weekend, much of it from people I never heard of before. Paul McKenna, lead singer/guitarist in a Scottish band was also a delight to hear. Enjoyed hearing Deb Cowan again, laughed at John Roberts' witty MC work and songs, was surprised at how funny Brian Peters was, having never heard him before and expecting just ballads. (e.g. he said he was doing an hour and a half program of ballads, and hoped to get in at least 3).

Many great musical moments, including the informal old-time and Celtic jams I recorded snippets of and put up on Facebook. Loved the Southern Old-Time Chestnuts tribute to Mike Seeger with Elizabeth LaPrelle, Cathy Barton & Dave Para, Mark Horowitz, Allan Kaufman, et al. Oh, Kim & Reggie Harris put on a terrific show to close out Saturday night, but I was especially impressed with the percussionist (me, a bluegrasser) who accompanied them - truly outstanding.

Caught Kendall and Susan and Dick on the iPhone camera, also on fb on the Mudcat group page. Saw several other Mudcats, hugged a few, shed a tear with Caroline Paton, ate way too much from the English bakery booth (gigantic peanut butter filled moon pies?? Are you kidding me??) and every other calorie I could find up and down the vendor row. Had a great time. Will be coherenter tomorrow...

I think that this was a very nice festival. The performers were varied and entertaining, as well as musically skilled. The facilities were improved (Thanks, Fairgrounds!) and the traditions of the campground and venues were strong enough to overcome the utter lack of courtesy that some people always seem to bring with them.

My congratulations to the Festival board, staff, and volunteers on a job well done. I only wish that there were more (not a LOT more, but more) people availing themselves of this great weekend.

Also, really missed those coffee guys on vendors' row. I'd come to enjoy my morning ritual of claiming a chair spot near the stage and waiting for them to open up for business at quarter of seven!
