Subject: RE: Mystic Sea Song Fest 2002
Yep! Unbestaggeringlylieveable! I shall be happily gushing for months. Youse guys that live in the Norheast are spoiled. What music! Carthy/Robb/Posen/Killen all together and dozens more. But screw the people, there were great songs I never heard before & great songs I love & heard new. Those St. Vincent whalers were worth the trip, themselves. I can admit now I've had Abrahams' raw tapes & the book for some time but hearing & seeing, of course, added a vital dimension. I was actually able to say I understood (most of) the words. The Shenandoah song is "Solid Fas'" and in the data base. Yep, it was all one big highlight...true.

Only sad I didn't get to see some 'catters but great to see/meet those I did. Turns out I met some what don't have that many pimples, can actually keep on key most of a verse and didn't drool at the mouth. Some, anyway.

Who cares from a little freezing rain and exhaustion
