Yeah. The shantey sing was WONDERFUL. It's a loud audience but they were absolutely silent for Carly's wonderful version of "Lowlands Away. Kathie Mack, Annie Storr and Judy O all showed up (I don't think Kathie's on Mudcat but a lot of people know her.) Mudcatter Kathy W is a stunningly good shantey singer. What a voice! After the pub closed we learned she was a Mudcatter, and described the wonders of the Getaway for her (maybe next year!) and we all sang "The Parting Glass" and "Let Union Be" standing outside on the sidewalk.

Bill and Joe are still sitting up talking about everything under the sun. Now that I've checked out the new posts on this thread I'm going to get some sleep.
