GUEST,Songbob 2012 Getaway program planning (32) RE: 2012 Getaway program planning 15 Jun 12

Well, we're in the middle of the Civil War (v. 1.5; 150 years), and 1812 (200 years), not to forget Woody Guthrie's 100-year celebration, so I see lots of possible workshop topics from those.

Have we explored songwriting in a while? I don't recall that in the more recent 'ways.

If we have Appalachian musical guests, and New England musical guests, how about a compare & contrast workshop on singing or instrumental styles, content, etc.?

The Beans feature harmony singing, so that's a thought, too. Is Sally Rogers coming? A workshop that APPLIES some of her thoughts from the last two years could be good, too -- for that matter, even if she's not there it could happen.

Have we had actual instrumental styles or instruction or even upkeep workshops lately? I don't recall that many, in truth.

These are just some ideas that got through the mental haze (I'm at work, so folksong isn't foremost in my thoughts just now).
