The monthly shanty, forebitter and ballad session will be next Saturday, 17 September from 3:30 to 7:30 PM at the Press Room in Portsmouth.

This will be an ideal opportunity to warm up for   the 12th Annual Portsmouth Maritime Folk Festival whish will be taking place on the following weekend.

Hope to see lots of you at both events - Tom

Hi Tom,
I remember enjoying an evening at the press rooms a couple of years ago when I was over in the States!!! I was with Jacqui Morse and Mary. I was just starting to play guitar and sing,I'd like to think I have come a long way since then. If I ever get over there again I would try and get to a session, It was very enjoyable.

See you there, Tom. I'm looking forward to both the shanty sing this coming Saturday and the PMFF the next weekend. I don't like to see the summer go, but I sure do like to see the PMFF roll around!

I'll come out for the Shanty Session if I have a place to stay afterwards. Can someone be of help to a slightly crispy wanderer?

"Can I sleep in your barn tonight, mister....."

Thanks,

I'm sure someone will find you some space.

And Sunday evening, 8 pm, there's a Roll & Go concert in Ogunquit at the Barn Gallery. Everyone is encouraged to attend.

Nor and I are joining Chris this evening in Worcester for a live radio broadcast to help boost the Portland Maritime Folk Festival.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Thanks! I'll hope to have some good songs to share in exchange for those you share with me. Of course, some of the things thar are unfamilliar to the DC-Baltimore-Annapolis access may be common at your sing, but I'll try to share some of my favorites.

Some of you I've sung for or with previously, Some are Getaway or Mudcat friends and come will be total strangers at first, but I hope not for long. I've wanted to come up to this one for years since reading the Mudcat threads.

I'll leave early, as I already experienced some hurricane induced road delays on the way up, and I know that some of you who normally get your excercise pumping iron are now getting it pumping Irene (Oh the Irene-y of ir all!). Those of you that been told that after they created you, they threw away the mold......well guess what? It all seems to have grown back. I will join you at the Press Room at the appropriate time, or as near it as I can, bad roads and the occaisional tag sale permitting.

I'm looking forward to it in the same spirit in which I'm sure I'll be looking back at it in.

'til then is now,
Severn

Looking forward to seeing (and hearing!) you again, Severn!

Don't let the yard sales delay you too long -- singing starts whenever a quorum is reached around 3:30. (Hoping we don't have to hover too long after the jazz people pack up, finish their lunch, and generally get their kit cleaned up and the tables vacated so we can set up.)

At least we figured out at last night's session what key I sing one of Tom's old songs in -- and Tom discovered he can do more concertina-wise in that key as well.

I look forward to being at today's session too, if only to find out who "Severn" is.

No, it's also my favorite singing session in the area too.

Beautiful early fall day!

Judy and I just got in after a splendid singing session. It wasn't one of the largest turnouts but there was easily 12 or so good strong singers. Linn and Judy were taking good notes on who sang what.

I was very impressed with someone who I don't think I've heard perform at the Press Room before. I think his name is Brian, an ex-submariner, with a strong voice, excellent 12-string guitar player, and seems to have a good understanding of traditional as well as contemporary sea songs.

Severn from Baltimore was also there, as were the more familiar faces of Tom and Linn, Earnie, Judy, Chris, Marty, Rose, Jeri, Emery, and Mark. And Bill and his wife were up from Cambridge. Who have I missed?

Anyway, we should be seeing most of these folks again next weekend for the Portsmouth Maritime Folk Festival.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

After many Mud-years of reading about and being urged by friends to come to the Port Smith shanty sing, I finally was fulfilled and filled full by a wonderful night of music and friendship, new and old.

I heard lots of old favorites, and enough good unfamiliar ones to have filled up a loose-leaf notebook had I asked for them all. The singing was excellant and I hope I was able to throw some good songs into the mix sung well enough to have given back somewhere near as good as I recieved.

Thanks again to all who were there and I hope to get back up there and see you down at one of the four DC-Baltimore-Annapolis sings someday. I reccomend a visit by all passing anywhere near this sing.

The Singapore Sailortown song is titled "Drink to the Men Who've Gone Ashore" with chorus and first verse by marine engineer William McFee and other verses by Charlie Ipcar; maybe this song should be retitled "Singapore Sling."

"Yakker, Yakker, Yakker" is titled "Laying on the Screw" by Australian poet Edwin J. Brady, musically adapted by Charlie Ipcar. Brady worked on the Sydney docks in the early 1900s and composed several tributes to the stevedores. He also rescued Henry Lawson from acute alcoholism, once or twice.

It was a lovely session -- really glad Severn was finally able to drop in. One of the best things about having a visitor at the session is the great influx of songs we sometimes have never heard before.

Severn, if you got a bunch of new material from us, well, we sure got a bunch from you!

He ended up heading back to Vermont to visit family. I had warned him earlier that not only was access to the guest room at Chez Perdurabo very iffy, I haven't actually seen the bed since sometime before Christmas. It's all Micca's fault -- if Micca had planned to be here after the Getaway, I would have started shovelling out months ago. And if I'd moved stuff off the couch, there wouldn't be any room on the floor to get to it.

I've been working on decluttering for years, but I never seem to see any results...

Things are generally little better at chez Ipbar. But we do have a vacant apartment now. I'm keeping this news from JudyB, so it doesn't become filled with "stuff."
