For those who wonder whattheheck a Woodchuck is, in this context, here's some text I've been working on, to add to our never-finished web page. Talk about shameless self-promotion...

More, re the music itself, later.

Peter.

*****************************************************************

Woodchucks' Revenge came into existence in 1990. Peter and Kristina Cady and Sandy Morse, after a long period of playing music together in the living room, at parties and festivals, and with the local fiddlers' group, decided that they should "take it on the road" as an acoustic trio.

Peter and Kristina grew up "down country," and met at Middlebury College in the early '60s, at the peak of the "great folk scare." They married and settled in Vermont in 1967. Peter retired in 2009, after 40+ years of law practice, mostly in sole practice in Pittsford. Kristina has taught French and Spanish in Rutland area schools since coming to Vermont, except for spending the 1970s as a full-time mom and part-time legal secretary; and as of 2011 still teaches part-time.

Peter and Kristina's two children, Andrea, a family physician (and composer of some of the group's songs), and Ian, a computer software engineer and excellent guitarist and bassist, both reside in Bozeman, Montana; which gives rise to frequent trips to the west and the occasional performance in Montana.

Sandy, the group's token native Vermonter, grew up in the Woodstock area, with some summers in the Adirondacks where his father managed lumber camps (probably a source of bad influences for a growing boy, but of good ones for a budding folk musician). He attended Lyndon State College, also during the folk scare, and has worked in teaching, in various administrative positions, and as a chef; as well as performing with various acoustic folk and electric country ensembles. He is now employed part-time, in both sales and instrument repairs and adjustments, for Be Music in Rutland, in addition to doing instrument repairs and giving private lessons.

Sandy's daughter and son-in-law, Dee and Todd, and granddaughters Shelby and Ashley also reside in the Rutland area.

Mike Lussen retired in 2010 after a 27-year career as a member of Woods Tea Company. Realizing that the time had come to back off from performing full-time and touring nationally, but wanting to continue to be active in music, he asked the Woodchucks if they might be interested in him working with them. Having been fans of the WTC for many years, the Woodchucks were most definitely interested. Mike has been practicing with the Woodchucks since summer, 2010, and has already played several gigs with us in the summer of 2011.

Mike and his wife, Lisa Miserendino, live in Warren. Frequent practices in Pittsford have given them a rare expertise in navigating the Granville Gulf and Brandon Gap highways.

Peter plays guitar, and, infrequently, bass. Kristina plays fiddle and bass. Sandy plays guitar, mandolin, and banjo; Mike plays banjo, tenor and six-string guitar, bouzouki, ukelele, and bohdran. All four members of the group sing leads and harmonies.


(It's not a certainty that all four of us will make the trip, but that's the plan at this point.)

As of this morning, the feasibility of this trip as scheduled is in considerable doubt. Vermont has lost so many highways that where you can or can't get to from here is a mystery. I know that U. S. Rt. 4 up the mountain out of Rutland to Killington and eventually NH, is gone, not just in one spot but for what looks like hundreds of yards. That'll be weeks getting opened, best case; or more than a year based on VT Highway Dept's. normal working pace. (It's my fault. I bought a season pass to Pico for this winter, and God found out about it.)

I wonder if Killington will survive as a business if people from New Jersey can't get there, or even if they have to take a detour on a temporary dirt road than might get their shiny RVs muddy.

More information as it becomes available.

Peter

Do what is safest. We can always reschedule.And if you are able to get here for the 10th, we can do a simple song circle and a meal.
We all still have our houses intact. That's a good thing.

I think I meant that if you find you CAN get here after cancelling the concert, we will share a meal and some music anyway. But after seeing the news, it doesn't look as if Vermont will be mobile anytime soon.
What a mess. And the streams are still flowing into rivers with overflow from the heavy rains. More floods to follow.

I would not cancel the concert yet. All we have to do is get from Rutland to I-89 in the east side of the State. Rt. 4 is the accepted means of doing so, but there are other possibilities. I merely wanted to point out that, this soon after the storm, with flooding still going on, and getting worse in the larger rivers, we have to be a little cautious for at least the rest of the week. There are so few adequate east-west roads in northern New England in the best of circumstances...

Yes, that concerts's still on but remember the location is not actually at the Maritime Museum but at the Winter Street Church on Washington St. (not the Chocolate Church) across from the Library Park.

This concert series that Alison Freeman and I have been coordinating is now endangered. We haven't come close to breaking even all summer, even when we featured the Johnson Girls. And we started the series thinking we'd be making millions!
