What am I doing here? I don't drink...

I never really did introduce myself back in May, at least not all at once on on one thread, so... I'm Will. I don't play an instrument, yet. I'm in North Branch, Minnesota. Er, I mean, I travelled here, to the Newcomer's Tavern from Minnesota. Heh. Now I s'pose I'll get kicked out of the place 'cause I brought my own Mountain Dew®? Your bouncer looks like a wuss. I'll just sit here and sleep... :)

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.

Thanks, Alice and MMario, and I'll get the next round. Alas, Nynia, I don't live in Dublin these days. I've become one of those faceless Brussels eurocrats. Actually, Brussels is a pretty nice place to live. Are there any other Mudcatters knocking around Belgium?

mousethief, I think you have finally given me a reason to move the redwall books from my "save for a rainy day" list to "buy at next oppurtunity" list.

And BTW, did I hear you got a copy of Child's Ballads? hmmmm?????

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?)

Anyway, cool name!

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.

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.

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.

Nynia

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.

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

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, my name is Arthur.

Coming as I do from Dublin, some say I got that name because of my father's fondness for the black stuff. Speaking of which, put on a pint for me, please.

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 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!

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~
