Nancy-

Yes, we're looking forward to showing them around Robinhood Farm, the surrounding woods and the cove below. Of course they're all city folk and will be stressed out by the lack of high speed internet service. This will be an interesting experiment!

The long range weather looks great.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Shame - too many good things happening that weekend. We've got a longstanding agreement to go see Tom Paxton in Harrison that evening. Dire threats from Tom if Kendall doesn't go!

Reservations are now coming in steadily and we're still hoping for a large welcoming crowd.

If I had to choose between Tom Paxton and The Johnson Girls, I would hear The Johnson Girls, and I've heard them more often than I've heard him. But, then, I do call myself ChanteyLass!

maeve-

Thanks for the music link.

Their are few women, or men for that matter, in the world of nautical music who do as good a job of presenting sea songs with such spirit, energy, and taste!

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

They were great in CT Friday night although Alison Kelley wasn't feel well and couldn't make it. How were they in Maine?

ChanteyLass-

The trio (Bonnie, Joy, and Deirdre) was fine. Unhappily, Alison was still under the weather.

The hall worked great. We had a small but enthusiastic crowd. And the Girls did a fine job of presenting older and newer songs.

Earlier in the day we had a fine lobster feed at the Five Islands wharf, and after the concert a surprisingly tasty feed at a chain restaurant (Applebees), one of the few that is open after 10 pm in our area. Then we tucked them in at Robinhood Farm for the night. This morning I got up early and by the time the Girls and their consorts were stirring, fresh coffee was ready and huge crepes were warming on their plates in the oven. My mother was in fine farm, even sang one of the old gospel songs that she learned from her nursemaid Ella Madison, which got everyone else singing.

Now the Girls are off on the road again, bound for Gloucester where they'll be entertaining some folks on a schooner evening cruise.

I think they all had a good time and we'd love to have them back.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

They had a small but enthusiastic crowd in CT, too. Heavy rain was a factor. I hope they have good weather tonight for the schooner cruise. I went to an afternoon folk event and evening folk event, both small and local, on Saturday but have been playing all three of the J Girls CDs today. I'll be glad when they bring out a fourth, but I got the impression that won't be soon.

Chantey Lass-

It's been my experience that a takes most groups 3-4 years to work up the songs for a new CD. Few of us can afford to do this full time.

But I'd love to see a new Johnson Girls CD.

Thinking back some more to the visit by the Johnson Girls, we were blessed with splendid weather, not something one can count on in Maine. And on the driveway to Robinhood Farm we came across a flock of wild turkeys in the field and then two deer grazing in the field in front of the farm house. It really was quite magical. Alas, there was no sign of the troll at the curving stone bridge.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

The Johnson Girls are top drawer in my book.Some people scoff at female shanty singers and Morris Dancers, but I don't. If it sounds good, it is good. Louis Armstrong?
