Nancy, thank you so much for all you do pulling together a wonderful program every year.
I plan to add photos too, but the new grandbaby and a house project seem to be eating up my time just now, so perhaps they will show up late enough to be a pleasant reminder....

Glad everybody enjoyed Meteora! None of the other program people had heard of them, but they all said, "well, OK, if you think so..." I KNEW so! Whether we can get them back next year remains to be seen, but the suggestion has been duly noted.

Not only are Kat, Jim, and Will fabulous musicians and swell friends, they're also incredible helpers -- on Monday morning they were right in there scrubbing down the retreat center kitchen and lounge, which allowed us to finish our cleanup WAY faster than usual.

And their house concert was wonderful, as expected.

By the way, thanks to all of you for coming to the Getaway!

There were only two detractors:

1. I was constantly afraid my stomach acid issues would interfere with fun. They only did to the point where I mostly consumed non-irritating stuff. Probably good.
2. It ended.
3. OK, so I thought of another one: some people were not there.

Note to the programming peeps: please get Meteora back next year.
All three of them were joys, both musically and personally. I doubt you'd hear any other opinions. Of course, you had hits with all the guests, but Meteora...

Anyone else wanting this recording please ping me, here or by email or PM, so I don't forget. The waves are high and the current strong in the tides of High Getaway...

I will also do the other favorites, in due course: Kind of Love, Winter's Night, Skipper's Song, per requests received, so let me know if any of those are something you'd want an MP3 mailed to you.

Leadfingers; point your browser to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FSGWgetaway/ and join the Group.

You do have to "join" the Yahoo Group to see the images. If you are so inclined you can join and unjoin the Group as often as you like if you are not inclined to get all of the emails which are associated with the Group.

However to avoid SPAM I do manually screen every membership request. So until I or one of the other moderators accept your request there will be a delay between your join requests and when you may actually view the pictures.

Thank you Leo - guess that's one I'll have to learn.

I do have a bit of negative feedback this year. At a couple of the workshops I went to the normal manners - wait until a song has finished before finding a seat and don't talk during a song - were ignored by a one or two people. Those people I had not seen in previous years and guess that this was their first Getaway so maybe they weren't aware of how to deal with coming late to a session. It is, however, rather disruptive and shows a lack of respect to others in the group. Not sure what can be done about it.

Joe, Joe, Joe:
Hmmm, or is it Max? :-)

Seriously though folks, Joe must be THE most understated, non self-agrandizing person lurking here! LOL

Joe just posted a link to the yahoogroups getaway photo section...

What Joe did NOT tell you, however, was that he very quietly (and I'm not exactly sure how he did it) posted 10 of HIS absolutely stunning and otherwise beautiful photos from the getaway on the site, but he added them in at the END of Sandra's photo album of 34 photos without a comment anywhere about it! (Certainly makes Sandra look good, alhough he did indentify them as his own within the album)

Joe, please more, and put them in your own album, I think you know how to do it my friend.... just stunning "portraits" they are!

BTW- self-serving comments by others notwithstanding, the yahoogroups getaway site is primarily dedicated to documenting the yearly getaways, but it's ALSO a generally "non-moderated" site for the use of all subscribers to post their upcoming gigs, local and regional folk oriented concerts of possible interest to getaway attendees, etc. FSGW related Politics is NOT verboten, and is, in fact, encouraged as appropiate... where else can such forums take place, certainly not on the official FSGW website...... only here on mudcat or on the absolutely non-FSGW affiliated yahoogroups getaway site could/can getaway attendees comment and compare notes without drawing the ire of corporate moderators... enough said, draw your own conclussions, but in any event PLEASE post and upload your wonderful photos ASAP!

Best

Gene-Peace

THree hundred laughing folkies descended on the lawn
Play low! Play high! And so we did play!!
Down along the long West River where the moonlight meets the dawn
Running through the weekend
Of the High Getaway!


(A minor gallop fades out)////

Maybe it is long practice, but my soul has never been so opened up by a single event--or what more correctly must have been an inifnite series of events highly compressed--as it was this year.

Who knows what magic lurks in the hearts of men and women?

The only part that is hard is the withdrawal. It's worse than quitting smoking. A passing note, a flash of a smile, and it's all there in cascades down to your shoulders, with no way out but to let it wash on through. We are all swept up in the lingering tides of the High Getaway...

Tami, it was a joy to see you again. We never did find the opportunity for you to read to me the piece you had written. Might a phone call be in order?

Dan, could you or Gheeta be persuaded to share the lyrics to the
brain song ya'll did at the concert?

Finally semi-human again after getting some much needed rest over this past weekend. This recluse who works too much was blessed with the presence of 'Catter's the week before Getaway and the week after. Wouldn't change a thing, but boy did I wear my already worn self out.

All of it worth every frayed bit.

I left my camera at home this year. Looking forward to what Genie puts up when she is rested, now that she is home again. Riding back to NC with Genie was a treat, and her willingness to do a good bit of the driving due to my painful shoulder was much appreciated.

Delighted not just in the Getaway, which I missed last year for the first time since I first attended, but also with the pre and post Getaway gatherings with Amos, Bobert, Micca, Chance and Suzette, Dani, Genie and Abby, not to mention some local folks I saw at Dani's pre Getaway Sunday pot luck and jam (not to mention Dani, her lovely self!) that I see waaay to little of.

Which is all a long-winded way of saying that the magic that is the Getaway extends well beyond that 3 days that happen once a year. You amazing people who comprise the FSGW and especially those of you who volunteer considerable time and effort to the organization, are the catalyst for continually building community, relationships and connection well beyond this one weekend, and well beyond the DC area.


I am so grateful to all of you.

- Hanging out with Max on the dock and just talking
- Seeing all the people I haven't had a chance to see in four years. I have missed you all so!
- Hugs, lots of hugs
- Singing softly in the retreat center with Fred, Julia, Tinker, and Micca
- Listening to young Nicole singing while we worked to get Saturday night's midnight snack ready

Belated post, but it's taken a while to get back on the rails, here.

First, a big thank you to our hosts, the ever warm and incredibly generous souls who do the hard work of putting on the Getaway, facilitating all the bits and pieces, and encouraging all comers. Thank you for this touchstone of REAL life every year.

Thanks to the best roomies ever, Jeri and Tami. Everyone got what they needed, whether it was sleep or no sleep, and left with the right bras. You're the best.

It was great fun to meet 3 new Getawayers (though I believe they are FSGW folks):
-        Mia, instant friend and total delight, even though (or maybe BECAUSE) she threatened our Abby with a knife within 2 minutes of their meeting; Jeanne of the lovely smile and voice; and Mitch, who was bubbling over like a bottle of fine Champagne shook hard with the wonder and beauty of the Getaway. Yes, Mitch, it's all real, and it really does re-appear out of the mist again next year. Come back.
It's always dangerous calling people out, but I'm gonna do it anyway:

Linda Goodman, you are a delight to my soul every time you sing a song, strum a guitar, or straddle a washtub bass. Like a flower opening and facing the sun : )

To Riggy, Mudcatter newly met: gently, you did one of the wisest, most kind things I've ever seen, and I bow to you. PM me if you don't know what I'm talking about.

The pics of Max as princess just made me spit the last of the 'company' wine all over my pajamas. You're a good sport, and it was great to hear you play and sing.

Kendall's Spoken Word session was great. Judy Cook's Beeping Sleuty made my sides AND my brain hurt, all at once. Kendall and Jacqui, you are the best team ever: keep coming up with stories. Your voices together are spellbinding.

The campfire was glorious. Can we do that EVERY year, please?! Phil Fox is sweetie, wonderful fire host and another veritable jukebox of things fun to sing.

Kat Logan's workshop on Finding Your Voice broke something open: afterwards, I had to go away and think, walk, write, sing. I am a singer, and I WILL sing from my armpits if I have to. Thanks for the perspective : )

Amos sang and played more than I've ever heard. He was everywhere, all the time; clearly he has found the fountain of cloning. I think it might be at the end of that dock. He made me cry twice before noon, which is how I know that he is only part gentleman.

Janie pushed on through pain and frustration and sang AND danced. Can't keep a good woman down.

Roger, Lisa and Charlie, Joe, Bill and Rita, Severn, Jim, Ron, Tinker, Nancy?. See? Once you start, how do you stop? Seeing all of your sweet faces and singing with (some of) you, even once a year, is good medicine. Thank you.

Alla y'all who couldn't be there?. I want to give you hell, but I get it. We have our seasons, don't we? But know that you were dearly missed. Probably if we ALL made it in the same year, a great chunk of Earth would float away on the West River, all aboard.

Post script: Driving home with Abby, Amos and Micca was one of my favorite parts of the weekend. Among them, IS there a song unknown? I doubt it very much. And once the bawdy stuff began? well, who knew it was downhill all the way from Petersburg VA to the middle of NC?! It was ALL downhill from there.

Wanted to thank Janie for her kind words about my vocal and instrumental accompanying.    It was a true pleasure to sing an impromptu duet with her ( and truth, be told, with Flawn and Lucy and everybody else I can do it with also).

In a lot of ways, it's at least as satisfying to sing a harmony as to sing the melody. It was also great fun to put the low bass into any big vocal group, e.g. the concerts Saturday and Sunday, (and that got progressively easier as the weekend went on and I got progressively less sleep.)    My voice has already sunk--I understand that's a function of age (just fine for basses, not so wonderful for tenors).    But by Monday morning with not too awful much sleep (about 5 hours Thursday night, after a glorious pre-Getaway party--thanks to Sandrolin and Gene for hosting it---, 4 hours Friday night, 1 /12 hours Saturday night (actually 8:30AM to 10 Sunday), and none Sunday,)-- I was ready to sing the Rachmaninoff Vespers-- down in the Russian bass range.

And it's also great fun to put be part of the musical texture with the viola.   I sometimes wonder if I should do it on a given song--and sometimes don't do it, since I don't want to drown out any words and the instrument is pretty resonant. But I do like weaving a countermelody or harmony in with the singer's line. It's also to some extent dependent on the strength of the singer's voice. and the rest of the instrumental backup. I've been playing and singing with Lucy and David for years so I know Lucy's keening voice--, perfect for Appalachian, mining songs, Western songs, Kate Wolf, and so much more-- can cut through a pretty thick musical arrangement.   But other voices I'm not always sure about.   And I know, as a singer, I want every one of my words to be heard.

Interestingly enough, I find that in order to accompany, it's also absolutely crucial to know exactly where the beat is at any given time.   So, for instance i have to get quite close to the singer and guitar to hear where the beat is, and I don't even try to accompany a acappella singing-- and, after all, the singer wants no accompaniment.

And after all this I haven't even started talking about the Getaway itself yet--and there's so much to say about that spectacular weekend-- and Jan is calling.
