Subject: RE: 2011 Getaway Reports
aw, Rita, you made me blush. That's the best compliment, ever. I had some belt-y things prepared, but the sweet quiet of that group made me want for all of us to sing an old favorite.

I didn't do much song-leading this year, was mostly content to belt out choruses on the edges. Maybe because I've had more non-Getaway music in my life this year than ever before, due almost entirely to the encouragement and gentle guidance I've had from you-all over the years. I've actually participated on two recordings this year, a feat I'd never have had the nerve to attempt without the support of amazing musicians like yourself, who are warm and generous teachers.

Nobody mentioned the complete and double rainbow that greeted many of us Friday evening! It was a good omen for our Brigadoon.
