Subject: RE: FSGW 2008 Getaway Pix
Wow, what a weekend. I had a great time getting acquainted or reacquainted with so many Mudcatters, not to mention the local FSGW people. There were some very memorable moments in the workshops and concerts, but I thought the highlights were the late night sessions where there was a more intimate feel.

I went down in the hopes of being able to introduce some of my own songs, but not being sure how welcome singer-songwriter material would be. It turned out that my songs were very well received, for which I'm very grateful, and that it was a real pleasure to perform them for such an informed and receptive audience. FWIW, the regional industries song that Janie mentioned can be heard here: I Will Bring You Home; and the cellist song Tinker mentioned is here: What He Could Give.

Charmion of Ottawa very kindly gave me a drive to and from the getaway, so I had good opportunity to get to know her and pick her (very expansive) mind about some points of history. Also, on the way back we spent a night with Mudcatter Peg and her partner, and I had lots of fun playing with her big dog.

Will post more as various specific memories want to announce themselves. Thanks very much to those of you who have posted pictures.

Cheers, Marion
