Subject: Mystic (CT) Sea Music Festival 2013
From: ChanteyLass
Date: 05 Jan 13 - 08:32 PM

Now that Chantey Blast is over, it's time for this thread about the 34th annual Sea Music Festival. The dates are Thursday evening, June 6, through late Sunday afternoon, June 9. Festival organizer Geoff Kaufman announced some of the performers. They include Kapriol! from the Netherlands, AcquAria from Sicily, a group from Poland whose name I didn't catch, Danny Spooner (Australia), Sara Grey (Scotland), and from the US: Debra Cowan, William Pint and Felicia Dale, Hoolie, Jerry Bryant, Jon Campbell, and Mary Garvey. Not much is available on the website yet, but more will be added. http://www.mysticseaport.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=home.viewPage&page_id=C9BE0FCF-D86E-382C-FA65352B6393646D

I must correct myself! According to this thread http://www.mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=149651&messages=1, it appears that Friday's Symposium will be at the US Coast Guard Academy. Marc Bernier, who started the new thread, is an insider at the seaport. However, this site http://www.mysticseaport.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=home.viewPage&page_id=47E8BDB0-65B8-D398-7B968471E18B4FAD still indicates(as of now) that it is at UConn's Avery Point campus! I hope that will be updated soon. I will keep checking right up until the start of the festival, and I'm sure the correct site will be announced at Thursday night's concert!

good for you... even if it's only for a few hours a day/night... what do we call the after pub sing, but not yet dawn time?

I'm going to try once again to get there early enough on Thurs. to actually make the concert & pub sing... here's hoping no last minute crisis arises.

Is McAllister Hall the same buidling we used 2 years ago?

I don't know if it is the same building. If it is, it must be a different part of the building. Two years ago we were in a dining hall (if I remember correctly), but this time it sounds like we will be in an auditorium. As I recall, two years ago we got directions to parking and the building when we got to the gate. There's a map here, but I don't have a printer. Off to the library to use their's! http://www.cga.edu/campus2.aspx?id=50

Charley, maybe that was a typo, but the Morgan will be relaunched on July 21st, not the 27th. I plan to be there. For an extra fee, one can watch from the Sabino. I will not be doing that, although I am sure that would be a lot of fun.

The Mystic Sea Music Festival itself is coming up fast, June 6-9, for all who love to hear good nautical music, and be in a space where hundreds of voices rise to the choruses.

I was at the seaport today for its Memorial Day observation. I bought my all-access pass for the festival. I also renewed my membership for another two years. And the Rotary Club was holding it's annual Lobster Days fundraiser all weekend. It was a pretty expensive day but lots of fun. And there was more music than usual because of the holiday. However, there was no Dead Horse Ceremony. It appears that for now that is only being done on weekdays.

If all else fails, you might be able to catch a Peter Pan bus to Providence and call me. Departure times are 11:15 AM and 5:30 PM, and it looks like each route has one stopover. It also looks like each bus will take you to the Peter Pan terminal in Providence, which is what you want. If the driver offers the option of getting off at Kennedy Plaza in downtown Providence, it would be much harder for me to pick you up there. It will take about 90 minutes for me to drive you from Providence to Mystic (but it would take me only an hour if you were flying to Providence, which is really Warwick). It would also be harder for me to find you at Kennedy Plaza than at the terminal. I'm not even sure if I could park the car near the plaza to get out to look for you! If you do take the bus to Providence, call me. Also see the PM I sent a few minutes ago and the new one I'll send with my landline number.

Nice? Understatement (Big Grin)! I had a wonderful time, even with the downpour throughout Friday evening's concert under the roof of the boat shed. Thank goodness for the dropdown canvas sides of the shed. I enjoyed the music, appreciated the variety of presentations at the symposium, and loved the pub sings. I also was thrilled to meet some Mudcatters but wish I could have met all or you who were at the festival. Maybe next time you go   . . . .

Next year's festival will be the 35th on June 12-15, 2014, assuming that it runs for four days. (One year it had to be cut back to three days.) I am basing those dates on the announcement that the symposium will be June 13-14, and proposals for papers (History, Folklore, Literature, Ethnomusicology or other appropriate disciplines that address any appropriate aspect of music or verse of the sea or inland waters from the Age of Sail through the present day. Graduate students are encouraged to submit proposals.for symposium papers and a brief curriculum vitae or resume to Dr Glenn S. Gordinier via e-mail at glenn-gordinier@mysticseaport.org by February 7, 2014.) are already being sought. Please note that June 15, the Sunday of the festival, will also be Father's Day. Taking your dad to the festival will be a great gift!

Also, Geoff Kaufman said there might be a ChanteyBlast in September. I hope it won't conflict with the Portsmouth Maritime Festival or the New Bedford Working Waterfront Festival! It's bad enough that January's Chantey Blasts have conflicted with the 24-hour Moby Dick readings at the New Bedford Whaling Museum!

survived another expedition from western NY to mecca... I mean Mystic.   LOL

Had a great time & met new & old friends... even managed a few hours of shuteye...

Marc, remind Geoff that all the symposium recordings have been transferred over to the computer with the Fishtown Chapel recordings.

Hope to make it to Old Songs & keep the party going.

Wow...what a great weekend. So glad to meet the 'catters I did (esp Chantey Lass who flagged me down). Great music, new friends and we (Mudhook) had a terrific time.

Hope to get back there...but in the meantime hope to see some of you at the Portsmouth Maritime Folk Festival in September.

There were a lot of highlights for me. There were the old friends I only get to see about once a year. There were the new people I get to hear sing and share stories and songs with after during the wee hours of the morning. There were the Museum grounds and ships; I could just live there forever if they'd let me.

I only lasted this year at the YTB late night sings until about 2:30 AM. I just don't have the stamina anymore to make it until the sun rises.

Thanks again to everyone who helped make it so much fun.

And the new CDs I bought and swapped carried me all the way back to Maine.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

glad to hear you got home OK, Mary.

We did our best to keep you hale & hearty... LOL.... but it most definitely is an endurance test. Just the hike around the 17 acre grounds is enough to wear you down :)

Now we need to get Heather Sparling to do a symposium paper on her work with maritime disaster songs... we only have 11 months to go.

We had a great time meeting Paul Mercer from the NY State Library & spent a lot of time in the YTB exchanging songs... including Mike's rendition of the Wreaker's Prayer - the Newfoundland poem he wrote a tune for & added a chorus/refrain... it's a blast.

We must have getten at least 6-7 inches of rain at home in western NY and it's pouring still... sigh. I should have planted rice paddies...

Mg, speaking of cameras, Charlie (Charley Noble) Ipcar has put links to his photos on Facebook. Even if you are not his FB Friend, you will probably be able to see them by going to his page or by going to the Mudcat FB page. Hopefully at some point Mystic Seaport will post some photos on FB, too.

Meeting Paul Mercer at the late night YTB sings was nice. I find him a very interesting person, researcher and songwriter.

And he's also a world renown expert on "Termite Farts."

Glad to hear that you got back safe, mg.

Wanted to report that my bag arrived today and sure enough, there was the camera inside my little knapsack in big knapsack. Thank heavens. I think I have some nice family pictures on it. Took zero pictures at Mystic although opportunities surrounded me. It was all quite awesome. Thanks Charlie for hauling me around to security to report it..I called them and told them it was found.

One of my favorite memories is hearing Danny Spooner singing Caller Herrin..I really didn't know the song..was aware of it..but he just nails it..here is a link from another time he sang it..http://ecti.english.illinois.edu/Media/Ballads/CallerHerrin.mp3

Sorry I don't have that song on cannery cd, which also includes fisher lassies etc..oh..last night I googled caller herrin history and there is a 1947 Scottish Film Board film by the name..also at last one short film of the herring or fish lassies....Well..perhaps I can use it on a future run of cd...reminds me, I should tell people it is out..well, it is out for $10 plus shipping...$2.25 in US and more in Canada and who knows how much elsewhere. But if you bought a bunch shipping gets very cheap in US with media mail.

Mary, I'm glad your camera found its way home to you.

Remember, if you come back to Mystic, New Bedford, or anywhere in RI, look at flights to Providence. Let me know before you book your flights and I'll tell you if I'll be available provide transportation when you land or depart. This goes for anyone else flying toward those destinations. I won't do Hartford, New London, or Boston, but Providence is really Warwick and I live in a neighboring town.

sounds great. i found the hartford airport disappointing..not so much as a vending machine and a consensus among people i talked with there and elsewhere that hartford was the most corrupt town in america...or at least usa portion of it. mayor is not beloved.   but people were nice.

Hmm. Here's what's currently available at Green State Airport (Providence/Warwick, RI). I don't know what the hours are for each these places, though, but if I transported you I'd make sure you had access to some kind of food.
