The "first tuesday" of March (the 5th),
there is an open shantey sing at THe Royal Mile in Wheaton.
Easily accsessible via Metro...Red line, Wheaton stop...
exit right side of station from the train...then walk a couple of blocks uphill to price ave.
and the Mile..look for the big blue awning.
starts at 8, but get there early if'n you actually want to *sit* and eat.

Try a restaurant called Old Glory. It's in Georgetown. You go there for the ribs, chicken, and burgers, not the music. But the juke box ain't half bad. Old Glory is no place for those of the vegan persuasion, and 12 steppers might be tempted to fall off the wagon. But for the rest of us, the place is just like the hokey-pokey --- that's what it's all about!

I wish I could get down South a bit. But we are going to be busy all day for the 7 days I'll be there. So the evenings will be superb! I'll make a list and the music is what I'm looking for the most. Not necessarily the fancy places - but Catters jam sessions or Catter's playing spots would be wonderful!

For me the best pint of guinness is still at Kellys Irish Times. Stand on the front side of union station go to the right corner as you look out that right walk across the street to the right. Sadly no music but the guinness is good and the food also. I always wander down there when I am working at the Library of congress. It is fantastic as one can extend drinking time as long as possible before getting on the metro rail which is right there at the station. For the absolute best place and if you have wheels not too hard to find- leave DC and head up the baltimore washington parkway to Baltimore. Take fort avenue to andre street left one block in and its right there at andre and clement one block in. Best guinness anywhere and music fri sat sunday starting at 9-930.... for pub directions: clickit righthere

Are you going to have transportation? The D.C. area is not blessed with the best public transportation system. I don't know what youlike to do but there is always the Smithsonian (I like the Aviation Museum) and the Hirshorn Art Musuem which is real nice (providing you are into the visual arts) but if its music, the Birchmere in Alexandria always has good folks, the Barns at Wolftrap in Vienna has "Roomfull of Blues" on the 5th and the very talented blueslady, Rory Block on the 11th. Now, if you want to observe and be part of history, there's Mario's Pizza just 3 miles into Virginia from Georgetown where there is an old black dude by the name of Joe who has run the joint since John Kennedy was president. Now, if you just want to knock down a few beers, the "Tombs" (also known as the 1789 Club) is one of the oldest beer joints in D.C. and has been a favorite of the Georgetown U. students fro some 50 years. If you like blue grass, you can find it everywhere since the Nation's Capital is the Bluegrass Capital of the World... Enjoy your visit and let us know how things turn out.

Honor? I don't know about that my friend - but I am so looking forward to seeing at least a few of the folks I've met here. I'm not a drinker, have no problem with those that like to drink, and would rather see what you all are up to. I don't know if I'll be able to bring my guitar or not - I hope so - but the airlines will determine that. (Yes I've bookmarked how to pack guitars!)

I have no transportation except for cabs - and I have no idea of how well they work. I was last in DC in 1982 for the dedication of the Viet Nam Memorial. Prior to that was 1967 when you could walk up to the White House and get a personal tour nearly. I've seen some of the Smithsonian and I thoroughly enjoyed the flight part! With my training running during the day I'll have my evenings from about 5 PM on free. And I'll be flying in on the Sunday prior so will have the rest of that day also. If they will let me I might try to come in on Saturday and would have that evening/night and all of Sunday.

I'm a back porch picker and love Jam Sessions - Hootenannys - get togethers - whatever you call them. I will keep you all up to date on when I will be able to arrive and hopefully put something together!

Norton, please keep track of this tread and refresh as the time grows near.

A previous post mentioned Kelly's which is right next door to the Dubliner which does have live traditional Irish music. And for the jams, nothing is better than Nanny O'Briens' Monday session. Both are near Metro Stations. Since you were here last, you need to check out the Korean and FDR memorials.

DC is fine for traveling either via cab or the Metro. Note: Keep your eyes open and your wits about you as you wander; "safe" sections transform to "questionable" very quickly.

Bobert - What an offer! I don't know how well I could drive in DC - where I live we have one stop light and not many more stop signs. The biggest new deal was the Wal-Mart out by the freeway. But as the time draws nearer - it's an option!!

Ed - Thanks for the advice. I can believe what you say. When I was there in 82 we traveled in packs due to concerns for individual safety. One of my buddies here saw the Korean Memorial and said it made the hair on the back of his neck stand up. What I've seen in pictures does the same.

This is just going to be fun.

Norton1, There will be a Sea Chanty Session at the Royal Mile Pub in Wheaton, MD. on Tuesday, March 5th. Click here
It's a great night. Wonderful singing, largely unaccompanied, and a very friendly atmosphere. As Micca has said above The Mile is a grand place to visit and I'll be sure to be there if you want to come. The Omni Shoreham is one block from the Woodley Park Metro station. This is the RED Line and is the same line that runs to Wheaton, and thus, the Royal Mile. Click here
The Royal Mile is only a few blocks from the Wheaton Station, but we can arrange to pick you up, etc. Keep in touch. I'm a native. (It's not my fault, war-time romance thing.) regards, Chance.

Never drive around in DC unless you have HP plates, otherwise you just drive around endlessly looking for parking... and while they don't have great mass transit, they DO have cabs, but the drivers know where nothing is, and will cross the street just to add a Zone to your fare...

I'll have to disagree with Mrrzy and Bobert, with respect. I am a native Washingtonian. I have never known a cab driver to be unfair in our city. It's not impossible, but not likely. Out Metro is clean and efficient and well-marked, reaching all the parts of the city. One stop, The Smithsonian, will put you in the middle of all the best museums and many of the best gallerys, as well as the Capital, Monuments, etc. For your hotel the Metro is far and away your best bet. Arlington Cemetery has it's own metro stop. See my link above. I assume from above you're training for the marathon? You will be one block from running through the zoo and down through Rock creek park, where parts are closed for runners and roller bladers on weekends. I'll be running down there with you.

What time are you leaving on the 10th? Capitol Area Bluegrass and Old-Time Music Association (http://www.caboma.org) sponsors jams in Arlington on 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month. Much more 'grass than OT. The music can be quite good. Nice folks, too.

LOL - No I am not in training for the marathon! My knees would snivel for months at the mere thought of running. I'm a social worker for the US Air Force and our annual training is being held in conjunction with the annual Psychotherapy Networker Conference. Annual trainings are something I rarely look forward to as they have been holding them in Nevada (kind of like holding mass in hell) and once in New Mexico. So this trip to the East Coast is something I am looking forward to. The training will most likely be great - but the music, seeing the city and the monuments again, and hopefully having my wife fly out for the last weekend are strong motivators.

My partner has never visited west of the Idaho border so this will be superb for her to see this magnificent city. And I sincerely appreciate all of the offers of assistance. Probably be needed! And I've never ridden a Metro (assume that is a subway?) so that ought to be a corker!

It's too bad you're not staying just a tad longer. On the second Tuesday of every month they have an Open Band for a massive Contra dance at Glen Echo Park. The park is located up the Potomac River just west of DC in MD, and is run by the National Park Service primarily for dancers from Latin to Swing to Contra, depending on the day of the month. The old Spanish Ballroom is in the process of being restored and you can expect 6-700 dancers and an Open Band of some fifty musicians. Last week we had 21 fiddlers, 8 banjos, and and assortment of flutes, squeeze boxes, a piano, bass and a xylaphone (sp?).

There are only a couple of guitarists, led by John Devine, and the lead fiddle last week was Steve Hickman, who is a ball to play under -(Laura Lengnick and Liz Donaldson and Steve often rotate tune call duties).

If you want to play, you need to get there by 7:45 for an 8:30 call, cause there are always more musicians than seats, and some friends alternate between dancing and playing. At the end of the evening you get a cut of the gate, which is usually around $20. And while the ol' timers engage in a lot of slap and tickle, new folks are welcome.

Hint: As the gal from Seattle found out last week, bring a Fiddlers Fake Book and a Ruff Water if you're from the West; we don't play many from the Portland Collection.

Will do, Chance. He had a ball breaking out into portions of the "Hungarian Rapsody", while we were playing the B portion of the March of St. Timothy. The dancers couldn't get enough. And at the BarnFest this year, he and his wife gave contra lessons to the little ones, which kept the rest of us in stitches. Now if I could just break him off the hand-roll's (cigarettes).

LOL - I may have to leave a week early and stay a week later to do all of this!! I'm really prioritizing though. #1 is to revisit the Viet Nam Memorial and see the Korean Memorial. #2 is to meet some Catters.

I was stationed in North Carolina my last year in the service and saw most of the East Coast. I had a buddy from the war that lived in Cranston, RI and we spent every weekend going somewhere. So those things will be nice - but this is a voyage of seeing friends. Some deceased and some alive and kickin! As they say - Wooooooooo Hooooooo!!

Yo, Steve, were are you coming in? Fortunato: Didn't mean that Metor won't get you around the city because it does that VERY WELL. Just doesn't get you around the suburbs too well. Like Wolftrap. But I love the subway. When i go to D.C. I park out in Vienna and use it for innnercity transporatation, where is is great...

Yo Steve, you still there. If you're coming into to Dulles, that would be great. And driving in D.C. is a piece of cake. All ya gotta do is pretend you are the nuttiest of your clients and drive accordingly. Actually, I just love driving down there. I pretend I'm a senile old codger and do things like... ahh... use my turn signal and drive the speed limit and then just get a kick out of the number of folks who still flip me off when they pass me in their Lexus's with a car phone in one hand and 7mm in the other thinking they are somehow... better off than me with my old Toyota Camry. I mean, what are they gonna do? Shoot your ass for doing the speed limit? Ha! Actually, I like getting in my old '63 Volkswagen and driving on the beltway with my old mans hat and my horn rimmed glasses and just... nevermind, no one would understand....

Hi All,

The time nears for my trip out East. I will be arriving on 04 March, R. Reagan Airport, 401 PM, United Flight 624Y. I believe there are shuttle buses that take us to the hotel. We are staying at the Omni Shoreham Hotel and I will return to Idaho on the 11th of March. My days will be filled with training but my evenings are wide open. I'm looking forward to meeting some of you and hearing some of the local musical scene.

Since carrying a guitar on the aircraft is not happening I am going to bring my little Banjolin (I can carry it on) along (I can't play it worth diddly) so I can learn it a bit better in the off times.

Later Folks!

Hey, Norton1!

Unfortunately I will most likely have to go out of town that on March 5, I have just learned. It's a work thing. I will however do what I can to coordinate for you and will alert the area mudcatters in case they haven't seen this thread. I'm dreadfully sorry.

It is a straight shot to Wheaton on the Metro, and the Royal Mile is a short walk from the station(at the risk of revealing too much personal info, my mechanic is around the corner, so, though I haven't been to the sings there, I know where it is)---Someone should let CarolC know we're doing this--

Actually this is Ferrara, Bill D's SO....

The Special Event Bill referred to up above, "Irish in America," will be on Saturday, May 9, not on the 10th. It will be LOADED with mudcatters, you bet, including at least one of the performers ("Liam's brother"). And, it's bound to be excellent. They are really worth hearing. So come for that if you possibly can.

We might even be able to arrange for a sing-around/jam after the concert.

And, there will be local mudcatters at the Pub on Tuesday too. Wear t-shirts if you can, can't tell who's who without a T-shirt.

I'm willing to pick people up at the Wheaton Metro and take to either event if needed. (Although, as stated, the pub's only a short walk away.)

Norton,

Pardon my ignorance, but I don't know what sort of music you're into. Folk, blues, country, rock, jazz? There's a keyboard player at Squire Rockwells on Route 236, a little ways west past the beltway (I495) that's outstanding (Tom Saputo). He can play any song you name, and play it right. He attracts some really talented people who come in and jam with him. Check him out if you get a chance. Whatever you get up to, enjoy your stay.

Steve, if my memory serves me correctly, your hotel is near the National Zoo, and if so, you should go. Also, that will put you relatively close to Nanny O'Briens where each Monday night is their celtic jam session. I highly recommend that.

Also, as per "What's On", looks like Celtic Soul will be at the Royal Mile this Tuesday. You should PM her.

I'll not be in the city while you are, but wish you a most pleasant stay. The March 9th show should be great!

Sounds like the Chantey Sing and the Irish are the two events to be at. I've also had a couple of PMs for an evening of just some quiet visiting time - maybe some music - but mostly just a "How do you do?" and get to meet each other. No date or time on that yet.

I am bringing a guitar, I bought a Seagull as I don't trust the baggage on the airlines with my Mossman, so hopefully it will arrive intact and I'll be able to play a tune or two if that works out.

Too bad I'm not still stationed at Bolling AFB, I could give you the grand tour. "This is an airplane that doesn't fly. That's a building we can't go into. There's the river and the airport's on the other side" - that sort of thing. It would have been thrilling. I even knew the social workers there because they worked just down the hall, although there are probably fresh faces now. 1997 was a long time ago, military-wise.

I regret that I waited until right before I left to take the Metro anywhere. (I parked in a garage that was locked at midnight when I went to see Les Miserables, got a ride home and had to use the Metro to pick up my car the next day.) It was clean, I felt safe, and I understood the route signs a lot more than I did the London "Tubes."

Have fun!

Several of the singers from Folk-Legacy's Irish in America CD will perform in concert for the Folklore Society of Greater Washington this Saturday night, March 9.

The Irish in America CD was the first attempt to chronicle the Irish-American experience in song and runs in a timeframe from the Revolutionary War to about 1980. All the songs are traditional or from the very early vaudeville period when the singers were likely to have worked at laboring jobs on railroads and sailing ships, for example, as did Thomas F. Casey (Drill Ye Tarriers Drill) or Ned Harrigan (McNally's Row of Flats). The CD has received excellent reviews in Sing Out, Irish Music, The Living Tradition and in this month's Dirty Linen with accolades such as "a glowing example of scholarly research," "passionate singing" and "the key into a whole minset and tradition." The WebSite is IRISH IN AMERICA.

The concert details are here at the Folklore Society of Greater Washington WebSite.

This is Norton - You all missed some mighty fine singing at the Pub - and then BillD, Ferrara, CarolC, and myself have been visiting and playing and singing for the last 4 hours! It has been just great!! Ferrara refuses to sell me her guitar so I'm just going to go home without it!! CarolC is an excellent Accordian player so no BS from her about "not being a good player" anymore. And she cheats! Sneaky - So now I'm going to go get my two hours of obligatory sleep prior to potty training - Next

This is CarolC - I don't know what that Norton fellow is talking about. But I sure have enjoyed spending the evening with these lovely people, making music and chatting.

Hey M. Ted! Where were you?

This is Ferrara now.... We want to do a group post! Well how do you describe a great evening without repeating what everybody else said? We had a bit of trouble identifying each other until Carol C got to the Pub, but we made up for a late start by singing and talking until an indecently late hour. Enjoyed every minute. There is something so mellow and magical about making music with other Mudcatters. With an autoharp, two guitars, a zither, a MacArthur harp and an accordion, somehow we managed to make it all fit together. Or, we just listened to one person for a while. Ask Carol to play some of her slow airs and laments, or a Finnish waltz. It can sure change your ideas about accordions to hear her. And Norton is a fine picker and we found lots of songs we all knew. If versions were a little different, we found some harmonies that worked together. Well, sigh, it would really be foolish for us to talk and make music all night so we are going to post this and say goodnight.... Sigh....

well, here's the REAL BillD/.....who has NO idea what these people just said in my name!...but it was a fine evening!...We heard music, then we MADE music!....Ieven tuned at the autoharp, and Norton could follow anything I did..so........

anyway, it was fun...but it is late..so...you all come see us ....

What a wonderful evening on Tuesday. The chantey sing was very well attended. The Royal Mile is a sizable room and it was packed with people who were clearly having a great time.

And what a surprise when Craig called for Mudcatters to stand and make themselves known. Regular posters and lurkers alike, amounting to somewhere around ten or twelve, all stood and gave their Mudcat names. That was really gratifying to see.

Ferrara and Bill D very graciously offered their living room for those Mudcatters who wanted to get together after the sing to share tunes and chat. There were just four of us present, Bill, Ferrara, Norton and myself. But what really impressed me, aside from the warm and familiar feel to the gathering, was the variety of kinds of music that just four people brought to the mix. What we did could best be described as a sing/play around. Most of the sing/play arounds I've been to have tended to suffer from having only a handful of people because there tended not to be very much variety of material. This was so far from being the case with these people, it was almost like having ten or twenty people instead of just four, musically speaking.

It was great meeting Norton and getting to know him a little. He's a fine singer and guitar player. What most folks don't know is that he used to be a cowboy. He fascinated us with stories of his years out on the range with no company but the cattle and his giant draught horse in 100 degrees below zero (F) temperatures and total whiteout conditions. But his trusted horse always knew the way, and Norton, impervious to the cold and the wind, whiled away the long hours between feeding stations playing his guitar and singing beautiful songs to his horse. It was these songs he sang to us, and we could close our eyes while he sang and imagine ourselves out on the range with him, watching the steam rising off his horse's back and listening to the sound of the wind freezing as it blew, making a soft tinkling sound as it fell on the twenty feet of snowfall on the ground. I still have a slight touch of frostbite in my big toe left over from my evening with Norton ;-)

And of course it was great to see Bill D and Ferrara again. I had the pleasure of meeting them briefly at the FSGW Getaway, and it was really nice to see them again and to be able to make music with them in such an intimate setting. They both have an amazing variety of songs committed to memory, which they sing and play beautifully on their various osbcure (and some not so obscure) string instruments.

Have fun with the rest of your visit, Steve. Sorry I won't be able to make it to any of the other festivities. It was a great experience meeting you and spending some time with you.
