Subject: Shellback Chorus to USA Oct 2003
From: alanww
Date: 19 Feb 03 - 10:41 AM

Well, I've just booked a flight. Hurrah! So, along with over 20 other members of the Shellback Chorus(a shanty group with members from all over England), I will be coming to:-

1 The Fall Getaway Festival at Ramblewood, Darlington, Maryland on Fri 17 to Sun 19 Oct AND
2 The Fall Getaway Festival at Camp Isobella Freedman, South Canaan, Connecticut on Fri 25 to Sun 27 Oct.

And we hope to meet with members of the Greater Washington Folklore Society and to visit Mystic Seaport at some point during the week in between. Some of us will even be staying on until the weekend after! Not all of the details have been sorted out as yet but it promises to be a trip to remember! Wow, I can feel the excitement mounting, even now!

Of course, many of the Shellbacks who are coming are also Mudcatters. At present I can think of Col K, Noreen, Snuffy, Stantheman and SussexCarole but I've no doubt forgotten some Mudcat IDs and will be corrected - apologies in advance!

I am certainly looking forward to the events and particularly to meeting as many USA Mudcatters as possible!

"For I be free to go abroad ...!"
Alan

Welcome, welcome!

Hope to see you at Mystic, will definitely see you at the FSGW Getaway at Camp Ramblewood, and maybe sometime in between as well (assumin' the good Lord's willin' an' the creek don't rise).

I'm in charge of the program at the FSGW Getaway, so we'll no doubt be exchanging PM's and e-mails like mad, closer to the date.

Sitting here with a big grin on my face. Jed Marum just left, Kendall Morse is performing for FSGW in May, and now there's your visit to look forward to. FUN!

So, Noreen, you really will get to the Getaway at last, huh? Yayyyy!

I've just been looking at the Shellback's website, and quite a crew they are! Durned if you all don't look like real people....It's wonderful to see the PMs and plans already being made for an event 7+ months away. I'm sure we (the Wash DC/FSGW bunch)will feel like we almost know many of you before the plane lands. (already do some of you)...Micca and Morticia and greg stevens and Kate must not have said TOO much that would scare you off..*grin*.

From Connecticut (Paton Territory) you can go south to NYC (InoBu and Annamill), NJ (Tinker), PA (Max's territory) or north to Massachusetts, New Hampshire (Curmudgeon would love to see you at the Saturday shanty sing) and Maine where Kendall, Naemanson, Charley Noble and I will welcome you with open arms. If you have money, you can fly to the west coast.
It is unlikely that will spend a night in a hotel. This is a generous and welcoming lot. Pay your way with song.

As Bill D says, it's so nice to see/hear/feel the buzz for an October event in February (heaven knows we all need it!) The excitement you Shellbacks exude is highly contagious. I can hardly wait for October myself!

I wish I had more bathrooms in my house so I could accommodate more bodies comfortably! As it is, I've already put in my "bid" with the powers-that-arrange to house at least one Shellback while you're in the DC area.

Max, old man, (hahaha -- he's young even by my standards!!) if you read this, take this as (continued) high praise for the INCREDIBLE "forum" you've created, where so many people can connect over such distances and make the world a smaller, friendlier place.

Go, Mudcat! :-)

Noreen is coming to the Getaway? Cool. Great news. And all the Shellback Chorus, eh? Sounds like the Getaway will shift mightily to the seaward. I'll relearn the Queen of Skye to sing with you folks, not my genre, you understand, but if the Red Clay Ramblers could sing it, I can as well.

We'll try to put together a singaround at one of our houses here in the Folk Ghetto of Silver Spring if you've time when you're in town. Dress warm, you guys, it's sometimes as cold as a well digger's patoot at the Getaway; you can always take it off you know. Micca did!

As far as I know Judy and Dennis Cook are going to organize a house party for us on either the monday or tuesday after the Getaway before we head off towards Mystic.If you know them they will be able to give you more details of where and when.
We cannot wait to come and see all you folks in October, it seems such a long time away.
As Snuffy said the two drivers are coming over on Thursday so should be well rested by the time they start driving.Both of us have lots of experience of driving on the wrong side of the road and are looking foreward to the challenge of the USA driving.
Thanks for all the positive responses to our visit we appreciate all the help that is forthcoming even at this stage of the planning. As far as I know we have all booked our flights now so there will be no escape for you now.
See you in October

QUEEN OF SKYE



It's haul her up boys and away she sails,

Off to seek a fortune,

With the sky in her bow and the wind in her sail,

Bound for Carolina



CHORUS

Hush little baby don't you cry,

Gone, Gone away,

We'll sail through the air on the Queen of Skye,

Bound for Carolina



When the Queen of Skye stood in Glasgow town,

Off to seek a fortune,

Those ragged boys they fit her down,

Gone, Gone Away,

Kegs of dried up salty beef and biscuits shaped like boulders,

An old one-legged parakeet they carried on their shoulders,



CHORUS



For twenty-one days we sailed the main

Off to seek a fortune,

'Till we got swept up by a hurricane,

Bound for Carolina,

We road those billows low and high, the passengers were wailing,

Then a great strong gust threw us up in the sky, above the storm
clouds, sailing,



CHORUS



Then the captain cried clap on more sail,

Off to seek a fortune,

When we got caught up in a comet's tail,

Bound for Carolina,

We road that comet 'round the moon, the passengers delighted,

And the first mate bellowed there she be and America was sighted.
