Subject: RE: L.A. Times article on S.F. chantey sing
Thanks to Gargoyle for the cut and paste of the article.

The chantey sing really is a treat, the best kind of gathering of folks to sing. As has been mentioned it's not an audience/performer gathering, but people who come TOGETHER for the music. We're always happy when we can get there.

I was particularly pleased to see Robin and Art Mc Clish mentioned. While they don't lead songs, they are sure and steady leaders in the world of people who make events like this happen. If there are chairs being arranged, items being sold, or emergencies being extinguished, it's Art and Robin at the fore. They're the best.

Chanteyranger, of course, is the guy in the really cool hat who is the musical engine which pulls this monthly train. We're all in his debt.
