Gorgeous Gary 2011 Getaway Reports (87* d) RE: 2011 Getaway Reports 04 Oct 11


My brain is still partly asleep but...yes, another great Getaway! Excellent concerts from Magpie, Joel Mabus, and the Muirs. Lots of fun workshops, notably the Songs for the Earth and Food Songs. The Mythical Creatures session I co-hosted with MMario went well. Great sings Friday night in the Retreat Center and Saturday night in Peace Cabin.

Good chats with Amos, Lucy & David, Amiel and Marge Schotz, Susan & John Townley, Saulgoldie, and many others.

My Lyle Lovett-playing friend was touched when I told him his love of "If I Had A Boat" helped make me a Getaway Hero (*grin*).

Still trying to figure out how I ended up as microphone wrangler.

I think I got to hear more songs from Big Mick than I've managed at the last few Getaways.

I amused Christina Muir by pointing out Sheryl and I were probably the only two folks at the Getaway more familiar with *her* music than her mother's. We've been Hot Soup fans for years (and seeing her partner Sue Trainor in and around Columbia in the early 90's is how I got into folk music in the first place), while I've only seen Gordon, Ed, and now Ann at Getaways (and the one Bok/Zentz double-bill a few years ago).
