Subject: 2005 Getaway Program Information
From: Nancy King
Date: 19 Aug 05 - 09:18 PM

OK, all you Getaway-goers, here's your chance to tell us what you want! The Getaway Program Committee (Carly Gewirz, Rita Ferrara, and myself, with some help from several others) is hard at work planning for your pleasure, and we need your input.

If you've been to the Getaway before, you know that our program is very inclusive and participatory -- "we have met our leaders and performers and they are us."

The first thing we need is a clear idea of who's coming, what kinds of music they like, and what special interests they have. We will be contacting some of you, and some FSGW people, individually, but we're hoping this thread will also generate some ideas. We have some ideas of our own, of course, but we want to add everything into the mix, pull out the best, and end up with something fabulous!

So, if you're definitely coming, post to this thread and tell us what kinds of music you like to play and/or sing and/or listen to, what kinds of jams and open sings you enjoy, and if you have an idea for a workshop you'd like to attend or lead. If you've been to past Getaways, mention workshops you'd like to see repeated (or not). If you have a special interest you'd like to share, mention that too -- it's especially helpful when people have several interests and are willing to fit in wherever we need them! If you prefer, you can PM any of us, though Carly and I will both be out of town and out of touch at various times in the next few weeks.

Please keep in mind that we're still in an information-gathering phase -- we can't begin to firm up plans until we have more information, and there are many factors to consider in programming (personnel, available space and time, balance, etc.), so we can't promise at this point that any given workshop will happen, or say who will lead what. What we can promise is that you'll have a marvelous time! We'll post details later when things get firmed up.

If you'd like a good description of the Getaway's atmosphere and program, take a look at this post from Rita last year. To look at last year's program, you can click to see Saturday's and Sunday's schedules.

So -- over to you!

Looking forward to seeing you in October,
Nancy


P.S. Don't forget to send in your registration SOON!

I'm all booked and registered, Nancy -- I hope the registration arrived ok.

Me, I play a wide variety of songs backed up by finger style guitar -- some love songs, some bawdy songs, some Folk Scare standards, some old Frank Warner stuff, some blues picked up here and there, a lot of IRish (mostly cantankerous-type) songs and a score of good chanties and whaling songs' a bunch of middlin' bluegrass and old-time music, a few French songs, a couple of Israeli songs, some cowboy and railroad and gambling songs, some South African Mirais and Miranda numbers... it's pretty much of an eclectic collection, I guess, but I like it that way. A few songs of my own devising here and there -- there was a Mudcat Radio program with a bunch of Mudcat songs on it also.

I love listening to anyone who is willing to open up and sing with their throat and heart open.

I'm definitely coming but I haven't sent my registration in yet. Gospel and ballads are my favorites but I like most anything. I'm bringing Noreen Keene and Stewart Reynolds from England with me. I don't know if they have registered yet but I know that their flights are booked.

Can't wait. This year is going to be amazing. Will think about workshop ideas. I'm thinking a tribute to Helen Schneyer might be nice.

Bring it on.

Amos, I'm so happy I'll get to meet and hear you. And I want to find out how you come up so quickly with verse!

There are so many people I'm looking forward to seeing and meeting and hearing and- oh, joy.

Nancy, you had great workshops last year- but time got unaccountably compressed. Please get your committee to work on how to s t r e t c h it. You can do it, I know you can.

Oh, and this year, see if you can put in the order to get the ambient air slightly warmer. Last year you forgot. :)

For myself, I tend to prefer participatory or sing-around workshops--maybe 'cuz I just sing for love and the fun of it--and what I love most about the Getaway is the sharing.

Some random ideas:

Songs of celebration
Great songs we never sing anymore
The Songs of Woody Guthrie
Campfire songs
Songs of the Family
Songs of the Sacred (much broader than Christian gospel)
Occupational Songs
Anything Goes

And of course--hobos, tramps, trains, labor movement, peace movement,
humor, jug, skiffle, blues, love, death, Mom, assorted wars, home states....there never is a dearth of ideas from which to choose, is there?

Bobert, I suspect we'll have to make our own heat, as usual.

Though I haven't sent in my registration yet, I plan to be there, with Janie (right, Janie?) and probably with my two daughters as well. Anyone else bringing their kids? Mine aren't thrilled with the music, though willing to come (thanks for the nudge, Nancy). One of them likes to sing along once in a while, and one could care less and will be off doing her own thing. Both are looking forward to meeting y'all, but happy to let those crazy grownups do their thing.

I love almost any kind of 'folk' music, especially unaccompanied (mostly 'cause I don't play and have to sing mostly to/by myself). I'm liable to sing anything along with anyone, anytime. Especially enjoy:

rowdy, rousing choruses, and most gospel, especially spirituals

sea songs and shanties, work songs

anything that tells a timeless good story

blues, and the intersection of sacred and secular music


Due to bad Getaway influences, I have been developing a weird taste for the jugband genre, mostly because it gives me an outlet to play the kazoo: the only instrument I have mastered, to date.

Successful workshops I've experienced in the past have been those that bring together a group of people who want to truly indulge tastes that might otherwise be marginalized (songs to different tunes, bawdy songs, LOUD songs, rousing choruses, etc) and who have a whole bunch of songs to share that fit the bill. I love the idea of clinics (singing, setting up sound, etc.), but almost always give them up when faced with the chance to just sing!

I love songs that deliver a strong, dramatic punch which is why I tend to gravitate towards material that is spooky, violent, grim and bloodthirsty. ("spooky, violent, grim and bloodthirsty" - it just occurred to me that might make a good workshop!) However, I do have some songs with no body count at all.

How about a workshop called "I learned it from ..." for songs that you learned in person from another human being, rather than from a recording?

As to workshops.. since Amos, El Greko, MMario, Big Mick, Skarpi, and a number of other songwriters will be there how about a workshop in which a writer presents a song with an intro as to how and why it was written? I would very happily assist in/chair that one!!
Also I really enjoyed the Parodies workshops I have participated in on my previous visits,(and I STILL want MMarios "Rudolf" Parody!!) and would happily participate/lead one of those._

Nancy et. al.

I was conversing with another 'catter about our love of spirituals, gospel, etc. While we really enjoy the Sunday morning gospel sing-along, it definitely has the feel of a worship service to it (nothin' wrong with that, mind you) and it would be nice to have another workshop at another time that allowed for a little different take--spirituals--songs about hard-living that are rooted in spirituals or the blues--can't quite put into words what the difference with the gospel sing would be--can some one help me out here?

Janie, I know what you mean. I think. To me gospel is fun- and there's a w i d e range of songs to present and hear. The other kind of 'Sunday Singalong' tends to have more 'hymns' and 'serious' themes. As you said, there's nothing wrong with that - it's just not my favorite.

To me, songs like 'I'll Not Be a Stranger' (I'm acquainted with folks over there), 'Shelter of His Arms', 'Light at the River', 'Will You Miss Me When I'm Gone', 'My Old Cottage Home', and lots, lots more, are fun to sing and to learn. All have a chorus, and they become rousing anthems.

I would happily go to and participate in both.

Justine & I will diffenitly be there, just have to do some planning. Justine will probably do a small bit of singing here or there. I on the other hand will hopefully be roaring by then. I'm pretty sure you know that you can use me however you want to but I'm not sure about leading for now. So I don't care if you use me, abuse me, ignore me or hook & dump me. I just count my lucky stars that we can be there & meet all those new & old faces & hear all those new & old voices.

Thanks, all, this is great! We're getting some really good ideas here! Some of them are similar to ideas we've already had, others are new. Now, let's hear from everyone!

Barry -- IGNORE you??!! I doubt it! You may be hugged to death! Seriously, we're thrilled you'll be with us, and the chance to meet Justine makes it that much better!

Number 6 -- The Getaway is the Folklore Society of Greater Washington's annual weekend-in-the-woods, attended by many local Washington folkies and an increasing number of Mudcatters from -- well, from everywhere! This year's event will be held Friday evening October 14 through Monday morning October 17, 2005, though not everyone will have the stamina (or the free time...) to be there from beginning to end. The site is Camp Ramblewood, in Darlington, Maryland, USA, not far from Interstate 95 and the Susquehanna River. You can find out more about it here , or just put "Getaway" into the search box on the forum page, and you'll get more than you bargained for.

We are both looking forward to being with you all, I've told Stewart so much about the Getaway and Getaway folks that now he's even more excited about the whole thing than I am, if that's possible!

I'll volunteer to run an Irish Traditional Song /Singing workshop of whatever variety you require, and hopefully Rita can get to it this time :0)

Barry- I am so glad that you and Justine will be there, after all you have been through. Join me in the workshop as before and you can do as much or as little as you like.

Dani, Stewart is brushing up his rowdy, rousing chorus songs, sea songs and shanties amongst others, so he'll be glad that they'll go down well in singarounds.

These are all really helpful comments. As usual we are getting off to a gradual (read "slow") start, complicated by summer and fall vacations etc. We do know that people like to get an idea of what the program will look like. Can't offer any timeline now though, except to guarantee that it won't be here as early as you would like .

Get those registrations in folks. It takes a load off Charlie's mind and lets us do some earlier planning.

Barry -- what Nancy said! The one thing I can't imagine is that people will ignore you at ANY Getaway much less this year! "Hugged to death," like she said, maybe. We are looking forward tremendously to a chance to meet Justine. Come and reel on the keel and roar on the shore and we'll hope no stormy winds will blow, 'cause far as I'm concerned last year's chills were enough Getaway Weather to last us a while.

Go to the getaway registration form (http://fsgw.org/photos/2005GetApp.pdf), and you will see how much for one or two depending on whether you're an FSGW member or not and how long you're coming for). Can you let us know by the beginning of October? We need to tell the camp how many meals to prepare at least a week in advance. Craft space--Ferrara will chime in on this one, but in the past FSGW has asked only for a donation of a percentage of your sales.

Selling crafts and CD's:

We have a room, next to the dining room, where you can display crafts or CD's for sale. CAMSCO and Folk Legacy often have tables there and that's where we hold the Silent Auction. Check with Judy O, Charlie, Rita, Carly or Nancy when you arrive for where you can lay out your stuff for sale.

There is no fee for this. At the end of the Getaway last year, most crafters and others who had sales made a donation of 5% of their sales. Most of them earmarked the donation for the Getaway scholarship fund.

Carole and I will be there too (will there really be more Brits than Americans this year?)

Some of you know that my interest is in writing songs in the style and on the subjects of traditional songs, so I'll second Micca's suggestion above and I'll be pleased to assist.

Carole's keen on gospel and we both like things with good rousing choruses, so I'm sure we'll find plenty we'll enjoy.

Looking forward to seeing you all.

Andrew & Carole

If Skipjack K8 is there, and if I am there, I would definitely take an accordion workshop with him if he would be willing to lead one.

I would love to co-host a parody workshop with Micca, if it can be arranged.

(don't think it is likely there will be more Brits than Americans....we have 50-60 local folk who never post on Mudcat who usually come)

We are getting WAY more diversified since Mudcat began drawing so many new folks from all over, which is a great thing...but sometimes a bit surprising to those who don't read all these threads and get in on the pre-planned jokes, etc...*grin*...
   The FSGW Getaway has always been a combination of local members, plus regular appearances from good friends from up & down the East coast of the US. The last 5-6 years have seen a real infusion of new ideas and talent, but it's good to remember that there will be those who have never heard of you, but need only a little "hello" and a few shared songs to get acquainted fast!

This one will no doubt be the most eclectic bunch ever assembled for our little weekend, with more than enough talent & ideas to do 3 Getaways! (I'd like to see it go an extra day sometime!) Who knows?

So how many usually come to the weekend? Was it stated someplace and did I miss it?

Marge and I have not registered, but we will be there unless the Good Lord decides otherwise. I am open to helping out in the workshops or any other artistic contributions you might need. Lots of new Mudcatters, eh? Sounds so wonderful.

Registration's in the mail. airline tickets reserved, permission granted for time off work (or, it may be forgiveness) working on rides and gear....we're almost there!! Yahoo!! I don't know exactly when we'll arrive, (sometime on Friday) but I'll be glad to pitch in where it's needed. All of the workshops were wonderful last year, so I'll be happy with whatever is presented. Can't wait to see everyone!

Assuming all the pieces are in place I will be paging for "Catters in search of a ride" candidates to the Getaway from BWI Airport around 4:15 to 4:30 Friday afternoon.

I can offer a couple of "songs I wrote because of...."after Micca's suggestion. La! What a cotillion this will be!

here's a suggestion - since there are people coming in from all over the heck and gone...

What about a "CD Grab Bag" where anyone can donate a CD - not necessarily new - but in usable shape - and anyone for a nominal fee (say $2 or even $1) can take one out. Probably want to collect CD's on Friday and saturday morning and have it avaialable for "purchasing" on Saturday Afternoon and Sunday.

you might have to draw numbers for first choice....the "first come, first served" rule can lead to unseemly behavior...*grin*
