I looked for another thread but didn't see any so Here we are. Of course it was wonderful. The weather was perfect, the company was perfect, and the music... where do I start. There were a lot of Mudcat members doing workshops and concerts and each was awesome. The was a gospel sing on Sunday morning that was wonderful. Honey even started Wade in the Water and everyone helped him with the words as all he really knew was the chorus. It was good though. It was very inspiring, even for me. Sunday afternoon had a blues gathering, a Carter Family gathering, Mac Ochs, non-Mudcat, did a wonderful workshop on M. John Hurt. I could go on and on. I'm not going to mention all the Mudcatters that gave workshops because I know I'll forget someone and they'll be hurt. So let me just say that everyone I heard was fantastic. What amazing talent we have in our group. After hours was great too! We got together in the dining hall with some work songs, and in our cabin we had late night music on Saturday and from what they told me it was wonderful on Friday too. I cannot wait til next year. I'm sure you'll hear a lot more from others. My heart is still bursting here on Monday at 8:15 AM at work.

Love, annamill
