Lots of good stuff there, Tim, including yours. And I knew Mary Garvey was hoping to present and am pleased that her work was accepted. And we'll get to see Craig in a suit again!

I'm coming as soon as I win the lottery & quit my job, but doesn't look promising for this year. I dearly wish I could hear the Great Lakes sailing songs session. Any chance that would ever be on the schedule of the Chicago Maritime festival? It's as close as this Cleveland folkie is likely to manage & I've been trying to collect and perform songs from our Great Lakes heritage. It seems like the Republican circus in town has eliminated us from this summer's Tall Ships tour. Bad luck for all those "traditional maritime" Jimmy Buffett tribut bands, they usually hire, eh?

I'll be on the shores of Lake Erie, thinking of Mystic that weekend.

Joanne in Clevland, with occasional tours of Put in Bay
