Subject: Mudcat Newcomers' Tavern
From: wysiwyg
Date: 19 Sep 00 - 04:47 PM

Here in the Big City, on the edge of MudcatHood, there is a small, cozy-looking, warmly-lighted tavern, on the northeast corner. Can't miss it when you come into town.... laughter and music are spilling out of the open door... your dad used to tell you about a place just like this, where all the people would come after their shift over at the factory... or they'd bring the kids over for supper and a little eight-ball... it was THE social center back then, and look! Here it is again, open after all these years!

You're new in these parts but this looks like just the spot to make a few new friends. You cross the street to look closer.... go in... feels right frinedly-like... and inside, there are a bunch of other newcomers like yourself, as well as a few people who have the look of knowing their way around a bit (but here at this tavern, which after all is a family place, they're all on their best behavior)....

You mosey on in and choose where to sit... (write yourself doing this)... Is that a waiter or waitress coming over to take your drink order? Perhaps a game of cards going on in the corner you'd like to join? Or do you like to hang out with the bartender? (Write your scene there)

So, stranger, tell us about yourself... where do you hail from, what brung you here, and what's your game? Do ya play any kinda that-there folk music? Oh, do ya now? What do you play? What's yer name again? Oh, how'dja get a name like that??

(Some of us may head over to another place later tonight, maybe you'll join us, we can take a MudCab... and there's a concert cross-town, over at that HearMe place you keep hearing about...)

Periodically, a rousing song of welcome is heard, to the tune of Flop-Eared Mule...

~S~

Hi there,

I'm new around here and could do with a quick pint of real ale to recover from a summer of folk festivals and Morris dancing; mind if I sit by the fire and chill out for a bit?

What's that? Do I sing or play? Well yes, I do sing a bit and I play the anglo concertina.

The name? Well I'm the only Scotsman I know of who dances the Morris! Mainly Northwest Clog, but a bit of border as well; certainly a rare sight in Fife.

Thank-you barman, a wonderful pint of Harviestoun 80; just what I needed.

Aahhh!

Well, Gee whiz. Am I the only newcomer to find this place. I'm no musician. Although in my younger days I did play the sax and was a drummer in a rock band (but I won't say how long ago that was). I'm no singer. My father once told me I couldn't carry a tune if it was packaged and put in a barrow.

I was bred and buttered, as my dear grandmother used so say, in Scranton, in the northeast corner of PA. Lived for a number of years in and near Harrisburg at the beginnin of my career and now call Pittsburgh home.

I found the Mudcat through a link at Foxes' Irish Archives when looking for the lyrics to a particular song. Since then, I have found the DT and other Mudcatters very helpful in obtainig lyrics to songs. And, after a couple of visits have gone from Guest to member.

Looking forward to hearing from some other newcomers.

Hi! I'm not really a newcomer, but could stand a wee pint and a bit of craic myself.

I'm from the Dallas/Fort Worth area, and play fiddle,guitar, sing and write in a Celtic/Bluegrass band. I see Lonesome EJ, whom I've had the pleasure to meet face to face. "Hi, EJ!"

Oh, I brought a plate of brownies. Is that alright? They're good with dark beers, especially Guinness.

I'm married to my bodhran player, whom I'll refer to as Himself. I have two wonderful daughters, a dog, a cat, and all the little beasties that live under our house.

Anybody ready to do some pickin'? I always am.

I met Jed Marum here, who plays banjo, guitar, a restrung Martin backpacker, sings and writes. Neat guy. Hope he pops in a little later.

Welcome all; let's do some singing and playing now.

Hi everyone,

I've been around for a few months now and am really enjoying Mudcat with all its benfits (mine's a pint of the black stuff too by the way). It occured to me that I have never formally introduced myself. I just sort of got involved in conversations and suddenly realised there are a lot of people more qualified to call themselves 'newbie' than I am anymore. I sort of miss it.

Anyway (hand outstretched).

My real name is (you guessed it) Catrin

I love singing just about as much as I love anything.

I have a day job (spit)

I have two daughters, ten and tweny years old, respectively.

Second to singing, I love propping up the bar with a pint or two and solving the problems of the universe with my friends.

Good to meet you all,

Catrin

Howdy.....

I have lurked for a long time but only started posting a couple of days ago.

Ahhhhhh let's see I'll get the important stuff out of the way first....

A Crown and 7 please....hold the 7 and bring a Harp chaser....thank you.

I play that folky music, but my definition of a folk song is somewhat expansive. If I can play a recognizable version of a tune on my acoustic and at least one other person knows the words....we have a folk song. It has entered the collective conciousness....if it is a good song it will still be there 50 or a 100 years from now.

I play guitar mostly but I also show up on bass and I can fake mandolin. I sing too. In fact I do most of the singing with the group I play with (God help us).

Carlin is my real name....I was named after great-grandpa.

And I hail from the great state of Florida....land of sunshine and sharks.

Nice to meet all of you.

Date: 20 Sep 00 - 09:55 AM

Why do I find all the drinking threads (virtual) when I'm at work. Doh! Well I've been in and out of here for a few months but I'm still fairly new. I sing a bit play guitar, English concertina, and I'm learning flute. Nynia's (a guys name folks) from St. Ninian but I'm not that religious I just like the name. I'm in Dublin but heading back to S.W. Scotland in the near future to go to Uni as a muture student. I'd like to suggest that anyone who's not been to a hearme (a cyber-singaround) to look out for the thread and bookmark the link. It's brilliant fun. All you need is a soundcard and speakers and you can listen in. If you want to sing / play (there's no pressure to do so) you'll also need a microphone. Well as I'm at work I guess I'd better simply have a virtual non-alcoholic beer (rats), I'll have a pint of virtual Marstons Pedigree or Directors later. Guinnesschik the Brownies were lovely, a nice touch. Arthur where abouts in Dublin are you? (I'm in Fairview) Well folks gotta go, I hope to see you around soon.

Oh, this looks inviting, Okay if my beast of a dog lays over there by the fire ? My oversized mutt is 28 inches at the shoulder, but he's still following me like a puppy and Bubba always sits in at Hearme when I go. He particularly likes whistling interludes.

Guiness for me too... takes me back to my college days and the roommate who made her Menorah from Guiness bottles.We did pray as we prepared each one.

I play a little guitar. But being self taught around the campfire I know my limits. Love to sing and as a female tenor I've been exploring the Blues. Mudcatters have been mightly helpful and encouraging. Old ballads are my first love and songs that are just fun,like Bell Bottom Trousers.

I'm working on a non-virtual pub/speakeasy in my basement. And this is a great place to soak up the atmosphere.Well, the really world is a knocking, maybe I'll get back for a song later.

I'm very pleased to meet you. Welcome to this crazy place.

Naemanson, it's funny that you should start the songs with South Australia - I have my own version of the song that I wrote from a woman's point of view... it's the favorite at our local session, and oddly enough, now the only version most of the people know!
When Bill Sables was here, he sang some verses that were different than ones I knew, too. We talked about how people can make up all kinds of verses to that song - and do.

Hey Nynia -- cool name! My website is called St. Ninian's -- not because I'm religious (I am but...) but because it's the home of the character known as the Mousethief in the book in which he appears (Mossflower). (He lives in an abandoned church -- a church mouse -- get it?)

My, my, but the place is finally starting to fill up. Nice to meet all of you.

Now, I think I'd like a black & tan, but if it's not on tap, make it a Harp.

Speaking of "on tap", and just for a bit of trivia, which I'm told I'm full of, among other things. Around Allentown, PA, they used to call beer on tap "loose beer". I guess because it didn't come in a bottle or can.

Anybody here from the Allentown area? Do they still call it loose beer? Just curious. It's the only place I ever heard it called that.

Well, I'm supposed to be working. Bye for now.

I am no newcomer but am glad to see so many recently!

I just wrote an article on single malts (sort of a how to for beginners on how to drink 'em) for a web magazine. Found myself wanting a Lagavulin cuz it is just about the best there is (though I am partial to Macallan!); so you have addressed a recent fantasy...

Jock, thanks for the Lagavulin. One of my faves! And I'll follow that with a round for all, caffienated beverages included.

Lepus Rex, I have to ask if you've ever seen one of my all time favorite bad movies, "Night Of The Lepus." It's about giant rabbits terrorizing a small town. Great fun!

Mbo, walk over here, please, 'cause I love the smell of sawdust! And I promise to turn my head when I sneeze.

Congrats!! Jock. May you and your lassie have many years of love and happiness. Me and my colleen are going on 30 of our own.

Hey Arthur and Nynia, by any chance do either of you know of a Meehan's Pub or Bar (or similar designation) in or close to Dublin? I've been told that there is one. But there's probably plenty all over the island. Our children are proposing a trip to Ireland for our 31st, and it would be nice to find it and have our pictures taken in front of the place having our family name on it.

They have suggested a two week stay in Ireland. However, we feel, since we'd be so close, that we'll also go to Scotland. Nynia, if you have any good suggestions on what to do or where to go, I'd like to hear them. By the way, good luck in your studies. Have you selected a major yet.

Greetings, Carlin. Thought I'd let you know that I like the Pogues. I also enjoy listening to U-2, and just this last March, when taping a show on PBS, which I overtimed to account for pledge breaks, I found that I had taped a concert in London by the Corrs.

Okay, after a glass or two now of the fine brown brew, I'll join in:

I shook her up. I shook her down. Heave away! Haul away! I shook her round and round the town. We're bound for South Australia.

Slainte gael mavourneen!

Nynia - I was a mature student too (35 when I graduated). I loved it. I found that being a wee bit older I had more experience to draw on and new concepts were easier (well, less difficult) to understand than might have been the case when I was eighteen. In fact when I was eighteen I was a complete scally and totally incapable of learning anything. It was the right time for me.

I'm starting an MA in creative writing next week. Not for work or career or anything. Just because I love writing.

Generally I'm called Spaw, although I've been called a few other things.......well, skip that...........As the biggest waster of bandwidth in the joint, you may already have encountered me somewhere, but I am really glad to see so many new folks in the village. I hope you all enjoy and learn from this place as much as I have. We have some fine, caring, helpful, compassionate, intelligent, and talented people here.............sadly, I'm not one of them but that's another story.

If you have questions be sure to ask......someone will answer.....probably not me 'cause I don't know squat, but we do have some who do. I hope you all have explored the place a bit......check the stuff in the pull down menu under "Quick Links." AND...if things get too overwhelming and you feel addiction setting in....well that's normal....but treatment is available at the Neil Young Center for the Terminally Screwed. We'll send the Insanevac chopper to pick you up.

Enough of that........PRAISE!!! Get off your christly ass and bring me a Jack and coke......Just show the can to Jack and then throw it away....and make it a triple.....Gotta' get primed for Mudcat Radio tonight(7 PM Eastern US-Mudcat Time)......and put it on Bert's Visa...............say what?........Its full?........Well call and get a credit extension!!! Just keep the Jack coming my way huh?

AND AIRTO---We do have another member in Belgium....goes by mcmoo......Send him a PM. He's a super guy.

Well, just let me let Spaw know that I did indeed get my cookie fixed, and while I'm not Sam Spade, I'm not Terrible Tom either. Thanks for the laugh.

For our Guest, Mbo at ECU. I am not able to get you a copy of the video tape I made of the Corrs. I originally thought is was a group of brothers in the Pittsburgh who perform, interestingly enough as the Corrs Brothers, and two of whom, I think, own a nice little watering hole in Pittsburgh called the Harp and Fiddle. If the copy I accidently made wasn't on a tape of other things, the Irish Tenors is one I think, I'd send it to you. However, I have made an audio cassette copy from the video, in pseudo-stereo. If you would like a copy of the audio, send an e-mail to me at Meehan@puc.state.pa.us and give me your regular mailing address and I'll send you a copy.

Right now what I could REALLY use, even more than a Scotch (though I wouldn't say no to two fingers of an old single malt, neat) is a nap. Are there any comfy sofas (davenports, couches, whatever) in quiet corners in this-here bar?

Usually Aine starts a new one when it starts getting too long to load. I think she has it traced - so though she probably wouldn't object to anyone starting one, using the sorta-semi-hemi-demi-psuedo-unofficial-official one is probably better, as if you start one on your own no telling if the keeper of the book might ever see it.

You need a couch? Hey....There's one over in that corner. Be careful that that tiple on the wall doesn't fall and whack you.

Tavern threads have been running for well over a year now I guess and each one has a different theme. And even if it doesn't there are things in each that make them unique, many of which have become part of the lore and iconology of Mudcat. Some have become "writer's workshops" of sorts like the Steamboat Tavern that became so bizarre it just petered out. Some have a pretyy distinct end, some are just fun, some have lime jello wwrestling, flamingos, time warps............Here was one that a lot of people enjoyed reading or participating in:

Hello, everyone. I'm Bradypus. I've been here for quite a few months now - you'll usually find me in the Song Challenge threads. (well worth checking if you haven't found them already) I play piano accordion and autoharp, just for fun usually.

Did I hear that someone wanted a song about Cluny? Try this, and if you like it, I'll have a Talisker

Cluny the Scourge

My name is Cluny, and I'm a rat
The toughest rat of all
A sea rat, a bilge rat,
Who holds them all in thrall
I live hard, I fight hard
Whenever I've the urge
So hear my name, and shake with fear
Cluny, Cluny the Scourge

Beware of Cluny, the evil rat
With jagged teeth and fur
A one-eyed rat, a long-tailed rat
Tail sharper than a spur
My brain's sharp, my heart's hard
I rage beneath the sky
So listen close to what I say
Obey, obey or die

My name is Cluny, the God of War
I've fought ferret and pike
An army lies at my command
I do whate'er I like
There's no love lost, there's only fear
I drive them to the verge
Sharp brain, sharp tail, sharp words, sharp wit
Cluny, Cluny the Scourge

Beware of Cluny, the God of War
Tremble when he comes
Let fear bite sharp and wit be flat
When you hear Cluny's drums
A batwing cloak, a plumed, horned helm
The pipes will sound a dirge
Beware, beware for Cluny comes
Cluny, Cluny the Scourge

Well I joined up sometime this summer & also never did an I'm new here message.

Just back in rural New York from 10 days in England. Did they stage the fuel crisis just for me? Abbot's Bromley was cool, though.

What I'd really like is a pint of that lovely ale whose name I can't remember that I tried in the pub I can't remember either. Oh well. It's not that I had too much, just that I tried too many beers in too many different places. So a black & tan, room temperature, thanks, for me.

Mostly I sing & I love a-capella harmony singing. My idea of a good time is singing Chester or Liberty at the UK Sacred Harp Convention :-) I own a tin whistle & practice every once in a while. I'm no good at Irish on it, but it comes in handy for working out simple tunes from notation. My cat hates it.

My great grandparents left Leitrim Ireland and brought their kids over to Minnesota to homestead at Tintah. I still have some relatives living there, and the old house they owned is still in the family, I think. I've never been there, but I have old photos of the place. My grandfather was a teenager at the time they left Ireland to homestead in the US. I have the memoirs of my great aunt Alice. She wrote about her parents, their life in Ireland, her father's decision to leave for America, and their journey overland from landing at Castle Garden.
Someday I will have to visit Tintah.

I also remember at the age of five being taken to a ceilidh in a tin shack on Skye; hardly saw a soul during the week, but come the Saturday night hundreds of folk arrived out of nowhere and crammed into this tiny hall. Magic!!

Good news, the barman's just found a bottle of 25 year old Ardbeg.

Jock, I'm sorry I missed the Lagavulin, although a wee tot of Ardbeg will do the trick.

I'm sort of new here. I've been lurkin' about for 4-5 weeks now and wishing that I had found the site earlier (found it searching for the Northwest Passage Lyrics).

Born and bred in Stra'ven, Lanarkshire, Scotland. Dragged to various folk clubs by older (10 yrs older) sister, as she was the folkie in the family. Lapped it up, but now that I'm living in Sweden I'm missing the folk scene very badly. Thank God for Mudcat!

Just like to say thanks for having me, and barman, do you have any Bruichladdich 21 year old? T.C

That sounds like excellent news, Jock. And please let me congratulate you as well (about the Ardbeg, of course, not your engagement!).

Robby, my recall of Dublin is starting to go a little hazy at times. I can't think of a Meehan's bar off hand, but there are several pharmacies that go by the name of Meehan. As you say yourself, it's quite a common surname.

Thanks for reminding me of McMoo, Spaw, I'll give him a shout.

Excuse me a minute while I slip out to the gents, it's time to heave and haul. Can you start another pint for me there?

I'm afraid I'm so new here, I don't what to do, (where am I now when I need me?)My niece invited me to visit, telling me it was a great place, and I'm sure it will be when I figure out what to do. In this time zone I'm eleven hours behind everyone else so by the time I get here today , you're already in tomorrow. Makes for an interesting experience. I'd like to say Aloha to everyone and wish them a good night. I'll come back another time. I'd like to say a pecial Aloha to Morticia. Fin

High Caul Cap over here, Rich- just enough space, and everyone knows what they're doing!

That music's great. We'll get some of the newbies up for a set in a while if you've got enough polkas and slides (and I think bert wants to join in but he's a bit shy). Best exercise there is! Who's brave enough to ask 'Spaw up to dance? Maybe there's not enough space after all.....

Thanks for the Jamesons, Jon! I hope to make it to North Wales for some actual glass clinking with you someday...but the virtual is nice, too.

is it too early for whisky? hmm, maybe...let's pretend it's Sunday and serve some brunch for them newcomers, who soaked up too much celebration last night, that's just falling outta bed...we are kind to our newbies, we are...at least at first! :)

toasted sourdough bread anyone? with butter and homemade peach jam, of course...oh, and French Roast coffee...made with chicory and hot milk, Nawlins style...

Hey, Burke, hope you had a nice time in England. I was there in June for 12 days and can't wait to go back; maybe in late October if I can swing it! (Samhain at the Rollrights...ahhh)

MMario;
yes, we must have a gathering of the Southern Tier Mudcatters sometime soon, eh?

I got a card a couple weeks ago from a woman who is organizing the opening of a time capsule buried by my sixth grade class in 1976...I think it is on October 28th, which probably means I won't make it (as I would be celebrating Samhain somewhere, maybe in the UK, maybe in Boston, but not likely Elmira...) but who knows?

Anyway, I was the second prize winner with my contribution of a 1976 world almanac; the kid that won first place donated a portable TV set...sadly, the school building was torn down years ago (even an old maple planted by the school's namesake was razed for a block of ugly split-level houses) but they removed the capsule for safe-keeping until the year 2000. It is hard to believe 24 years have passed...

on second thought, it's not too early for that whisky...

Hi. I'll be the mostly-quiet one who's just happy to drink in the music and (try to) follow witty Mudcat conversations. Inadvertently, I arrived here yesterday while searching for some lyrics. 24 hours ago I did not know of your existence, but now I'm thinking of little else besides the topics I've been reading here... I've only scratched the surface and my head is spinning (virtual intoxication?). Last night I was too musically-overloaded to sleep. Sometime after midnight I jumped out of bed, cleared the clutter off my turntable and listened to some songs that you have made me happy to think about again. It's too late, I'm already addicted to this place. There is so much to absorb and I look forward to getting to know you more.

I just stopped by for a wee drop before leaving for a few days to see our grandson. Young Connor first saw the light about 14 months ago, our son and daughter-in-law's first and also our first. I'll drop on by when I get back to see how things are going and if there are any new faces.

Before I go, however, I plan on starting another trivia thread. Just to see how many are interested.

Until then--

I'll just do hear what I did there... horn my way in, start singing enthusiastically (volume masking for talent) and beating my dead goat (who looks suspiciously like a bodhran, but sounds more like a temmis shoe in a washing machine)
