Subject: RE: Mudcat Worldwide Singaround-On Zoom Mondays!!
From: Joe Offer
Date: 20 Jan 24 - 12:19 AM

Hi, Everybody - I hope you can sing with us on Zoom on Monday January 22. Singing starts at noon Los Angeles time, which is 3 PM in New York and 8 PM in London. We sing for 4-5 hours, and always have a good time.

There's been a little discussion lately about our policy on between-song conversation and length of performances, and the like. Different singarounds do things differently. We like to emphasize music and not conversation, and we like to keep the session moving along. We have 25-35 singers every week, and the session can get tedious if there's too much conversation. So please help to keep the session moving along - without being rushed. In general, each person's turn is one song or recitation, plus a brief introduction - limited to five minutes but hopefully shorter. But if a ballad or recitation goes a minute or two overtime, I don't think everybody's going to mind.

And sorry, but we really don't want participants giving technical instructions to participants. That's what we have cohosts for.
I don't want to get all rulesy about this, but the idea is that we want to keep the session moving along and not get bogged down by conversation. Thanks.

-Joe-

David Polacheck, I don't think you need to email Joe Offer to register for membership on Mudcat; I think you can still do that directly from the Mudcat website by clicking on "membership" and submitting your email addy and a user name. And it is a good idea to register with this site. But you also don't need to be a Mudcat member to participate in Monday zoom singarounds. To be on the email list to receive the codes weekly, you DO have to email Joe Offer. But Joe is travelling at the moment and Gerry Myerson sent out the zoom code this week. You could get this week's code from someone you know who is a regular participant.
    Incorrect on three counts, Felipa. You do have to register through Joe Offer to become a Mudcat member, and Joe is back home. And he has been working on registrations while traveling.

Hi, Everybody -
Three years ago, I wouldn't have believed that we would still be singing every Monday for three years, but here we are. I'm glad to be back to singing with my local friends, but it has turned out to be wonderful to have the opportunity to sing every week with people from all over the world. And the songs and singing continue to be of such high quality. I think we'll keep this going indefinitely, as long as we have songs to share - and as long as I can depend on Dave Kidman and Casey Casebeer to fill in for me when I get the Wanderlust.

Come join us every Monday for 4 hours of singing on Zoom at the Mudcat Worldwide Singaround. We start singing at noon Los Angeles time, which is 3 PM in New York and 8 PM in London. Singers in other time zones are required to do their own calculations. Doors open half an hour before the singing. Hope you can come.

Alternate blurb: Come one, come all to Monday's Mudcat Worldwide Singaround on Zoom. 8 PM in London, 3 PM New York, and Noon in Los Angeles.
We open half an hour early for cocktails and conversation, sing twice round the circle for about 5 hours, and then party afterwards until we're done.

Email from Casey:

We rely, as always, on the skills of the volunteer co-hosts to do the zoomy part of running the session. Are you curious about how Joe’s Fuzzy Logic works in the second round? see the note below.

And don’t forget to post to Chat the title and origin of songs you sing (we guest hosts don’t have quite Joe’s well-known superpower for finding a song on line! Help us get your song info, so it appears on the list of songs and readings that Gerry posts to the Mudcat Worldwide Singaround thread every week.)

-------------------------------
JOE’S FUZZY LOGIC - how the singing order works in the second round.
-------------------------------


—The Mudcat Worldwide Singaround continues until everyone who wishes to has sung twice.

—Participants are given a number as they arrive. If you’re just listening, let the host or a co-host know, and you’ll be given the number 99, indicating to the host that you aren’t planning to sing.

—In the first round, we sing in the order of our numbers.

--There are always singers who can’t be there for the first round. This is to be expected in a large session that incorporates busy people from many time zones.

— Joe has his own system to insure that people arriving in the second round still get to sing twice.   Joe tries to avoid having anyone sing their two songs back to back. Therefore, he likes to incorporate latecomers into the queue to sing their first song soon after they arrive, and then have them sing their second song when we reach their number.

-- He accomplishes this by calling on the singers with numbers 1-10, then detouring to anyone who has only arrived in the second round and has not yet sung at all. When the late arrivals have sung their first song, he continues with singers numbered 11-20.   Then he checks once again for any additional arrivals who haven’t yet had their first song, and calls on them.   Finally, Joe continues with singers from numbers 21 on, and we sing through to the end of the queue. He may decide to let a very late arrival sing twice in a row, depending on how late the session is running.   That’s Joe’s Fuzzy Logic!

Ray Nichol send some pretty good advice for online singing sessions:

VIRTUAL SESSIONS:


The following apply to most live sessions:


• Switch your settings to have microphone and video off when joining a session.
• Check your equipment and settings before joining meetings to save time.

• Be conscious of background environments and others in the room. ?
• Computers used should be in appropriate areas, and where possible be against a neutral background. ?
• Cameras may be turned off if other distractions in the household may a disruption. ?


ETIQUETTE
• In any meeting the Host is in charge, let them deal with any questions do not butt in unless asked.

• Language must be professional and appropriate, including any family members in the background.

• Be polite and remember the other people are sitting in their own homes.

• Save non-relevant discussion for elsewhere.

• Remember that most people will know the history of songs etc, no need to tell the full story every time.

• Make use of 'Chat' to ask for information on tunes privately, or to post the information on your performance.

• Repeats are fine but remember some people may have heard the same one last time.

• Possibly keep a note of your own performances to help you plan for next time.

• Try not to practice during someone else’s performance, and mute to tune up.

• Do not post links to other sessions without permission.

• If you join a session give it your full attention, joining just to perform is very rude.

• Even if there is no time limit, don't drone on.

• Choose pieces that are of an appropriate length, don't expect a welcome back if you go on for 15 minutes.

• There is no such thing as constructive criticism on Zoom sessions. Keep it to yourself.

• If you are late for the session, you can still join but expect to be at end of list.



RULES
• Participants are expected to adhere to Club rules and maintain appropriate behaviour.

• On most sessions, No Politics or Religion, Zoom groups are very mixed everyone is entitled to their own views.



RECORDING

• Sessions should NOT to be recorded on any device unless permission is granted.
• If any members would like a recording of 'their performance only' please ask Host who may send you the video file. (if you ask, we will let you record your own performance at the Mudcat Singaround, but please keep conversation and disturbances related to recording at a minimum).



We've been doing this Mudcat Worldwide Singaround for almost 3 years now, and we're still having fun. Come join us on Zoom Mondays. We start at noon Los Angeles time, which is 3 PM in New York and 8 PM in London. Doors open about half an hour earlier.

Please remember to keep song introductions short and between-song conversations at a minimum. I got a lot of complaints last week because I let some newcomers prattle on. So, folks, quit prattling. People tend to think it's boring. And if you feel driven to give tech advice, please refrain. If you're giving advice to a singer, our tech people can't talk to them. So, HUSH!!

Chris - you just have to ask Joe Offer to email you the zoom link, which changes each week. Everyone who attends is welcome to sing; you are given a number when you sign in. So we take turns singing in roughly the order that we sign in to zoom. There is some juggling to accommodate late comers when the early birds have all had a turn, or to accommodate people who have to rush off. Most people do not stay for the full 4 hours plus; some leave early and some arrive late.

Pretty much anything accoustic is acceptable. Some people accompany their singing and others don't. There is a Mudcat thread you can look at which lists songs sung at past singarounds Songs from the Mudcat Worldwide Singaround

During the week, I see posts from people asking about a song. Think about coming to the Singaround and singing what you know of the song for us. If you're short on time and can't wait two hours to sing, let me know in the Zoom chat and I'll squeeze you in early. The idea of the Worldwide Singaround is for Mudcatters to meet each other and share songs. I try to be as flexible as possible to accommodate everyone.

If you have any comments, feel free to speak up.

We usually sing Mondays on Zoom - Noon Los Angeles time, 3 PM New York, and 8 PM in London. We sing for about 4 hours, and get about 40 singers from all over the world.
We won't be meeting next week because we'll all be at the FSGW Getaway (Oct 8-11, 2021), so come sing with us today and every Monday except next week (come to the Getaway next week).

I sent out the invitation for Monday, October 4. Please contact me, joe@mudcat.org, if you didn't get an invitation to Monday's sing and would like to attend.

Since 1999, the annual Getaway of the Folklore Society of Greater Washington has been the annual gathering for Mudcatters worldwide. It happens next weekend, Oct 8-11. We're going to cancel the Mudcat Singaround for October 11 and invite Mudcatters to attend the Getaway that weekend. It's a wonderful gathering. https://www.fsgw.org/getaway

"Across the Great Divide" was written by Kate Wolf (but Nanci Griffith did it splendidly).
