Subject: Get ready for the 2018 FSGW Getaway!
From: Nancy King
Date: 16 May 18 - 01:55 PM

Planning for the Folklore Society of Greater Washington's 2018 Getaway Weekend is underway! This is a great gathering of dedicated folkies from all over the US and beyond -- and we'd love to have you join us!

The date for this year's weekend is October 12-15 -- a bit later than it's been for the last several years. We'll gather at the West River Conference Center, on the Chesapeake Bay, and settle in for a marathon of informal workshops, singing, playing, jamming, and all-around good times.

We always try to tailor our program to the tastes of those attending, so we'd welcome your ideas. You can post them here, or email me at nlking2(at)verizon.net. If you'd like more information about the Getaway, go to www.fsgw.org, click on "annual events," and then on "Getaway."

Do let us know if you can come, and send us your program ideas! The Getaway is all about participation, so start participating now!

--Nancy

I wanna go! yes yes yes!

Particularly so, now that I have Ohio reinforcements!

If you can get Dick Swain to come, would love to try again for a Great Lakes Maritime session - know there are other folks who sing from this region as well.

When does registration open, Nancy?
I'm hoping there will be good Fall colors since camp is in mid-October.
See you soon.

Registration should open in mid-June, with application form in the July-August FSGW Newsletter, and on the FSGW website.

Looking forward to seeing you, Joe! Can't make any promises regarding foliage -- there are a few things beyond our control -- but it just might be very nice indeed!

Hope you can make it, Joanne!

And for those of you still trying to decide whether to join us, here's our list (in no particular order) of invited guests for this year:

The incomparable BRYAN BOWERS will bring his autoharp, guitar, songs, and stories;

DAN and BONNIE MILNER -- he's an expert on traditional Irish music, and she's a member of the Johnson Girls quartet, so knows all about sea songs;

BILL DESTLER, with his beautiful tenor and a lot of banjo expertise;

JON PICKOW, son of Jean Ritchie, bringing lots of family songs and lore;

Blues singers RESA GIBBS and JACKIE MERRITT promise great songs and blues technique;

MELANIE RICE PENLAND and DONNA RAY NORTON (the daughter and cousin of Sheila Kay Adams) will bring us traditional Appalachian songs and stories;

AND -- to top it all off -- the fabulous SALLY ROGERS will be with us again!

Come one, come all!

Dagnabbit.

Not this year, much to my dismay. OTOH, having responsibility for running a concert I really want to see is a mitigating factor. But I yearn to be there again.

Max, it should be pretty soon. We were almost ready last week, but then ran into a snag when we learned a couple of our guests had to leave earlier than we'd thought. It's gotten rather complicated, but we should be able to work it out in a few days.

Looking forward to seeing you all!!

a few things from the schedule that really look interesting to me....

Knit and Sing (3:30-4:30, Paz Lodge): Jennifer Woods, Sally Rogers. Bring your knitting or whatever portable (and quiet) craft you have,
and we’ll share songs while we work.

What Makes a Song Sound Traditional? (4:30-5:30, Nature Center): Lisa Null, Janie Meneely. Ever hear a recently-composed song
and think, “Wow – that sounds like a real old one!” We’ll explore the elements that make songs sound that way

Dreams and Dreaming (4:00-5:00, Peace Lodge): Jocelyn Day, Bea Lehman. Daydreams, nightmares, visions, reveries – often sung by
those who dream them

Singer’s Toolkit (10:00-11:00, Retreat Center): David Ingerson. Vocal techniques for making a song come alive.

Chorus and Pub Songs (3:00-4:30, Ehlers Memorial Hall): Don Stallone, Rose Sheehan, John Roberts. Songs for everyone to join in!

Doo-Wop (2:00-3:00, Retreat Center): Al Kehs, Ron Davies, Flawn Williams. The memorable vocal style from the 50s

I'll be arriving at Reagan Airport at about 10:00 Friday morning and will need a lift to the Getaway. I'll have plenty of time to get wherever public transit is able to take me so I can meet someone elsewhere. I will have a large and small suitcase as well as a small backpack. (I'm heading to Ireland immediately after the Getaway.) Glad to share gas money, of course. Thanks!

Cheers,

David
