My new grandson is in his bouncy seat on the table right beside my desk, listening with wide eyes. He's not quite coordinated enough, at 3 months, to get the beat right, but he's cooing, grinning and waving his arms and legs like like an overturned turtle to the music. Sounds great, just like old Mudcat Radio Days!

Hi Jeri! I wasn't sure who that was playing...I don't think I've heard T Quarrington play acoustic before--he is dazzling!

Speaking of the brothers Quarrington--there are several--I saw one of them, Joel, who is a classical musician, in a chamber music concert a year or two ago. He plays an enormous contra-bass made in--no kidding-1630. Built to last. It is the most thunderous sounding thing I have ever heard in my life!

I went to their house for Christmas a bit less than two months later. Got my coat off, set my stuff down, and spent the next three hours in the basement with a guitar in my hands.

Willie-O Kathy Reid was singing but you may also have heard Eve Goldberg singing "Crossing The Water". Also Tony Quarrington was playing acousticly with Wendell Ferguson who was playing the lead through most of what they played.
I just got back from the Borealis office and the launch went stunningly well. Great crowd and lots of long-time musical friends playing live.
And interestingly enough, to reinforce something Rick said to me about mikes vs. pickups, all of the performers played straight into mikes, no cables whatsoever. And did it sound fabulous!

Kudos to Borealis, Paul Mills and the folks at CIUT who made a remote broadcast a reality.

Question of sound fidelity is a bit moot, we were listening on a $50 blaster with an antenna composed of twisted up aluminum foil, in the "deep fringe" reception zone. But it was great!

I'm still hoping to contact Mick before he leaves town. Mick, if you happen to check this thread while you're still in To, my cell number is up the page a few posts.

I thought the rear end (differential) of my truck was pooched, but as breakdowns go, we made a pretty soft landing. I went to college here in Lindsay (80-82), so I went to the campus, found a former teacher, and got a couple of numbers and a mechanic recommendation. Got to the garage and they found out it wasn't the diff, but a completely worn out hanger bearing that was letting the drive shaft shimmy and shake something fierce. So with any luck they'll have it fixed tomorrow by noon and we'll be into To early afternoon. (maybe)

An old college friend who never left here picked us up, fed us, and we did some catching up. (Interesting coincidence, there's a thread about Paddy Graber's new CD. We are staying with Paddy Graber's daughter Eileen and her husband Don. I asked her about her dad's new CD and she responded "huh? he does? he did? I didn't know that.")

This isn't thread creep, it's all about why the Virtual Schmirtual Tour didn't reach its intended destination, but we did alright, sort of.

I was at Borealis until about 9:15. It was great to see some Mudcatters, I've been out of the loop for a while. I finally got to meet Big Mick, and he is both. I was hoping to be able to stay for his performance, but I caught it in the car on the way back home. Very nice.

I was struck by just how many people have so much love and admiration for Rick and Heather, and rightly so. It is an added bonus that so many of them are remarkably talented and were so willing to participate in this evening. Rick and all the other people who phoned in came through loud and clear. I was amazed at how many now pro performers started with "Rick taught me to...". Boy, was the Globe ever spanned tonight.

Rick, sorry that you couldn't turnip in person. Nice job on the CD. Paul, it was nice to meet you and thank you for making sure that this got out.

Willie-O, I'm pretty sure that Mick said he was staying until Wednesday. I'm sure he will read your post and hook up with you.

Well...just in from the gig and after enjoying a nightcap with Bev, Mick and Tinker, I took the time to read thru this thread. I am just blown away by this whole community and the event that surrounded us all tonight. My heart is full to bursting.

I'm so glad that so many were able to connect. I'm sorry we weren't able to read every message or take every call, but it was all quite overwhelming.

A quote, attributed tonight to Canadian singer/songwriter, Bob Snider said that "We are in the business of love"...ain't that the truth!

The love of a huge community goes out to you, Rick and Heather, tonight on this joyous occasion. I'm blessed to have been a part of it all.

Cheers,

Paul

I will be a long time processing what happened tonight. It was an extraordinary, and love filled, experience. Everything you imagined as you listened in, was going on in that room. The assembled talent was wonderful, but not the highlight. It was the whole feeling that emanated from every email, from every phone call, and from every performance. Every person was focused on this remarkable gift that we have all been given. The friendship and love of Rick and Heather. It is what drove every thing I saw. You could feel it, you could smell it, you could almost touch it. It was a celebration of a helluva good CD, but moreover it was a sincere expression of gratitude for a man and a woman who always have the time to teach and reach out to others. I am rambling here, because it is late and I am intoxicated on the moment. But of one thing I am sure. What happened tonight was a remarkable expression of love, friendship, and gratitude. I think I shall never forget this.

All the best,

Mick

Quite a privilege to be there; thank you so much Heather.

Can't recall if it was on or off air, but with all the phone calls of greetings and CD orders from the US, England and Australia, I just love it that Tam Kearney (curmudgeon emeritus with "Friends of Fiddler's Green") used his cell phone to call in his CD order from the second row of the audience! Kicker is: he used the toll free number! How utterly and delightfully Scottish of him!

From: Jeri

The bit about Tam calling from the second row was reported to us out in Radio-land. I can just imagine what went on at the time:
OST (Operator Standing By): "Hi. Would you like to place an order"
Tam: "Yes. This is Tam Kearney."
OST: "Great to hear from you...HEY! Aren't you..." (Peers over desk to row 2)
Tam: (Grins at OST and gives a dainty little finger-wiggling wave)

The night, the broadcast, the music - everything was just perfect. There must be some add-on to Murphy's Law that says something like "Everything that can go wrong, will, but sometimes, the universe smiles upon events that really need to go well."

I would have loved to have been there, but there was a certain feeling here, far outside the hub and at the end of hundreds of miles of wire, part of something that held the planet together for a time with music and love.

I can't remember who it was who read it, but he did a marvelous job.

When the chatter of an unquiet mind,
Will not give me peace,
I can listen to your music,
And those stray thoughts cease.
Voice of greenwood, oak and ash,
That tower over shadowed path,
While I shelter on the mossy earth beneath.

I'm borne away by laughing strings,
Notes that soar though time,
And weave a spell of making 'til,
The air itself's alive.
Here there are no sorrows,
But waterfalls and flights of sparrows,
And while you play, I call their freedom mine

Fingers faster than the wind,
Notes like drops of rain,
And songs that tie me to the past,
With a simple, warm refrain.
And the joy a song can bring,
When it's got that fearless swing,
Played with skill and love together, unrestrained.

Records, though we love 'em,
Unfortunately lack,
Those licks of wisdom I have swiped
And I will not give back.
Teacher, mentor, my best friend,
I think it's time my poem should end -
I love you - now, let's hear another track!

It is also worth adding to Mick's remarks that the something else going on was the amazingness of the Mudcat -- I think it slowly dawned on the non-Mudcatters in the room that having listeners in Australia, the UK, the foothills of the Sierra, and elsewhere, was in part due to the weaving together of Rick and the Mudcat over the years. You could see them going -- who are all these people with their in jokes? Who are these LaFrances and Offers? Hysterical. I was proud to see Mudcat magic at work.

It was all overwhelming -- but one more tip of the hat to Paul and his crew that it all went so well.

Answers: (1) Yes, Tinker made it, she had her video camera rolling.
(2) It was all recorded -- and will make a great tape. I think the mood was set by Jason Fowler doing his guitar magic, and it never stopped. Everyone played and sang beautifully.

It is also worth pointing out that having Rick playing up a storm on CD every few minutes sure put people on their toes!

It took quite a bit of insight to see the possibilities in this style of release party, and make sure that people could access it through the internet. I think Paul had a good idea what would happen, but the Borealis folks who were printing out the e-mails and answering phones seemed a just a little amazed that messages were coming from places like Michigan. Colorado, Australia, the UK, and even California.

I hope they sold a load of CDs!

I forgot to send them another email that we only say La Frawnz when we're putting on airs and then it's de LaFrance.**bg**

It felt like some of those wonderful old Mudcat radio days when the room was full of Elves and Mudcat Travellers. Thanks, again, to all and esp. to Walking Eagle who first had the idea. (I think I've remebered that right.)

Okay, I'm not quite back to earth yet. I stood over Mick's shoulder as he posted here in the lobby of the beautiful Holiday Inn Express in Scarbourgh and decided that I wasn't ready to try and put my over tired arms and fingers to work composing.

But before I get to the sublime, in true Mudcat fashion Mick and I hopped in the car for breakfast went about 30 feet and low and behold a flat tire.... Yes, Jeri there is one more picture of Big Mick Lane sprawled next to a Jacked up car....No I did not sing rude shanties to him (I still value my life.) But we were able to eat breakfast while a local dealer mounted new tires and finally headed to Bev and Paul's to help move equipment to Borealis....

Now I know if I took the time to search, Mick has previously raved about the hospitality that embraces you when you walk into this front door... It's all true and more. These are warm gentle folks who deserve all the praise previously heaped and more... Thank You.

Yes, I was encouraged to video and sat there all night in awe that I had the privledge to record these amazing musicians on such a night. I'll be sending copy back to Paul to edit. He took some footage as well, and although the amazing transformation of the Borealis Office to a broadcast studio was not set up for visual, there too a few moments of magic were captured.

I'll send Jeff some photos when I get home tonite. I've met so many amazing people I can't even begin to name names, but it truely was an honor.

I'm going to DC from Thurs. this week until next Tues. partly for Kathy Westra's birthday party and partly to do some work at the Library of Congress. Mick, it won't be the same without you coming in and playing Burl Ives guitar. Anyway, I'll be ordering the cd as soon as I get back.

Rick and Heather, be well, take care and congratulations. It was a wonderful thing you all did last night.

love,
karen
