Subject: RE: 2011 Getaway Reports
Too many moments by far to try to list highlights, but here are a few special memories:
Peter's astounding rendition of Marie Leveaux, at the Ballads.
MMario's new song of naming fallen friends, and hearing the backstory of the song.
Having KT joining us at concerts and in Peace cabin.
Hearing Rose and Colin's harmonies, and having Olivia join them.
David's amazing harp; more than once someone would ask him for a song, and he would say, 'I don't know it,' then by second verse he is accompanying then takes a solo the third.
Getting to hear Mick sing again, There Will Be Music.
One singer who knows who he is making me cry three times in one day.
Seeing Claire in person again and hearing her amazing voice and songs.
Having the sun suddenly cut through under the grey clouds and illuminate the boats and trees, against the dark background, just as a great blue flew low through the light.
Ron Davies having lovely accompaniment to anything going, and knowing the words and all the verses of a ridiculous array of songs.
Hearing Ann and Christina together, and having a good visit after.
There were so many songs that made me sigh hugely at the end that I can't possibly think of them!
It is so wonderful to be surrounded by so many singers and songs, and equally wonderful that a non-singer like me receives such welcome and encouragement.
