Date: 15 May 16 - 07:32 PM

The May Third Saturday of the Month Shanty, Forebitter, and Foc's'l Ballad Session will be happening THIS SATURDAY, May 21st from 3:30 to 7:30 PM, downstairs at The Press Room, 77 Daniel Street, Portsmouth, NH, USA.

It's been a looooooong and complicated month, but things may be resolving themselves. Music will help.

Come help us raise the rafters with song. See you there!

Linn

Nick Noble has told me he'll be at both the Friday Press Room session and Saturday's sea music sing.

Susan, I'll have the clip art books in the car for you.

I do expect to be there. Perhaps some folks from Cape Ann and environs will head North as well...

Well, the only Gloucester addition was Martha, but Nick came up from Worcester. Don was there also representing Massachusetts. The Maine contingent was Charlie and Judy and Tami, although Hutch qualifies as Maine even though he lives just across the river from NH. I'll list the whole crew when I list what we sang.

Later!

Of course we read it, Linn! "We" don't always have something to post. With regard to #45, "truncated" was a particularly diplomatic way of putting it! BTW, you wondered how long I've been coming to the Press Room sessions. Since 2006. Time flies when you're having fun!
