Rosie ... Sorry I missed you ... Or maybe I didn't miss you and old age has put another gap in my memory....

Yes, it was a blissful weekend. Fine weather, fine singing, small pockets of music continuing far into the night. The variety of musical styles and talent was staggering. We had late-night sings where the accompaniment included guitars, fiddles, a viola, and a full-sized Celtic harp. It works amazingly well.

It was really special to have visitors from Mudcat. The out of town musicians who join us each year are part of the Getaway's magic.

We do this every year, around Columbus Day weekend. Next year we may move to a less expensive location. Either way, I do hope we'll get to meet some more Mudcatters next year. - Rita Ferrara
