I just added a new set of images to my flickr pages containing fifteen images I took at John's house concert. All images were taken when John stood up to sing a capella on two songs. All images were taken with the available light, no flash. Note: Images appear grainy at full size. I reset the camera's ISO setting from auto to 800, equivalent to a type of film one might use in a film camera to take pictures in low light level. To see the set of images click here.

Well...what a weekend. Mary...thanks for your hospitality and hard work. Always a treat to be in good company. John just out did himself this time. Really super choices of song and lots of info in between on each one. Needless to say. We also went to his concert in Marblehead at 2 pm Sunday with Yea Mariners All and Larry Young/John Rockwell at the Me and Thee Coffee House. Really spirited two hour performance for the library reading program. We are all very fortunate.......Anyway....the aftermath of John's house concert was great fun. Lots of great songs, more good food, enlightening discussions and strange antics were to be had until the wee hours on Sunday. What a glorious way to spend a weekend.
And who needs sheep when you crawl into bed at 4 a.m and find an warm feline under the sheets.....as a bedwarmer....and besides sheep do not have claws!
One other thing....I was reminded that there was another doryman on the 'Cat.....here's an offer from the Doryman off schooner Adventure...come down to see our restoration efforts....we'll have a lot of these(dories)on board when we start sailing again....same as she was 81 years ago.   www.schooner-adventure.org
Thanks again to Mary and John for a great and wonderful weekend and to our Mudcat friends with whom we shared it with...best crew going!
Doryman and his mate

Nice pictures Jacqui, where's the other guy that was there, you missed someone? The last picture with John & Kendall is with Duane who came with bbc.
It was a great concert & time & John's lovely to (he,he). Thanks John
Thonk you too Mary.

Mary the ice chest's mine you can keep the soda. Remember leaving I said I gotta get my ice chest but I'll leave you the soda? You said I'll get it you. I figured that you, as 2 bit mistress had a plan & who am I to question it. I guess there was some sort of misunderstanding. I'll take the blame for it though. Usually cause it's my fault.
The ride back was fine but slow, my car had on snow shoes & it threaded just fine.

John's concert was as good as it gets, especially the last (pre-encore) song which was the one Tami requested. The food was incredible, and the people - lots of nice folks, most of whom were singers, so there were bold choruses with tasty harmonies. It was nice to see some folks I haven't seen in a while. Sorry I couldn't spend more time with bbc and Duane, or talk to people I'd just met. I wish I had more energy to hang around and sing some afterwards, but I got up to early and was having some serious consciousness issues.

Tami brought Bandit by before I left, and it was good to meet the little 4-legged gentleman.

A terrific evening. John's choice of material was outstanding and he gave a great performance, carrying on to the early hours with the song circle. He did a great rendition of Barrett's Privateers sometime after midnight and, although I was too tired to stay any longer, it was a wrench to leave with the party still going.

It was so good to see so many people there, enjoying the whole event. I'm sorry that Maeve had to leave so early, due to the weather, but it was good to meet her at last.

Good music, wonderful food and great company. Couldn't ask for more!

And thank you, Sinsull, for hosting another great evening!

We left around 11:30 pm and though it was still snowing most of it melted on the roads and we really didn't have any problems driving our hour back up the road to Richmond.

The food was again a delight. The shrimp curry, the chicken alfredo, the mussles, all drew my attention but there was much, much more.

The house was chock-a-block full with earger listeners, chairs, musical instruments, food and drink. If someone sneezed the entire house would rattle!

I haven't heard "Willie's Lady" in years and that was a delight. I remember the first time I heard it and tracking it down in the university library for copying, working out the minor chords. And there was "Patrick Spense" to add more cheer to a wintery spring evening, not to mention "Bringing Nelson Home." John Roberts was certainly in fine form. During the break he caught me staring at his pile of Anglo concertinas, and kindly explained how he could tell which one was which.

The one new song I tried out was "Midwatches" by old sailor-poet Burt Franklin Jenness; it's a keeper but I needed more than a week to get it hard-wired in.

Coming up in late April will be another nautical music swap at Captain Bunker's China Sea Marine Trading Company Annex, his wonderful barn in New Gloucester. I'll initiate a new thread soon with details. There appears to be no conflict with any scheduled musical event at Chez Sinsull or any other one in this area that I'm aware of.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

They were all in bed around 3AM. I did some dishes and went to bed. Awoke to multiple cats and dogs and people singing. SIGH.

I was so sad not to have some time to sit with Holly. Next time. The snow looked ominous and she had a long trip home.

The concert was great. The after concert was hilarious. I think we ended the vening with Frank Mills from "Hair".

Thank you all for good company, good food, and good music.

Deb - if you can bring another desert or some nice bread. Some club soda or tonic water would also be good.

Tom - whatever potables you can manage!

The only time that Mary had a problem with leftovers was when ten jars of salsa came through the door and people insisted on opening their own jars.

All that salsa is not easy to dispose of, unlike the rest of the leftovers, which always get taken home while the f#$%^@g out of date salsa gets left with Mary, who doesn't like it, even when it's fresh.
