The guy in the kilt is Amiel Schotz. He was telling a wonderful story in Scottish dialect that he learned on a music tour of Scotland with Ed Miller. I think the hats were his own idea. :-)

Amiel was born in Glasgow, now lives in Israel, and he and his wife time their U.S. visits to include the Getaway whenever possible.

But folks - I do gotta say that Bobear is sumpin' else on that cigar box guitar. LEJ's harmonica was so hot I swear I saw smoke risin' up from it, and the finish blistered on the neck of Amos' guitar.

Iff'n you was thinkin' pennywhistle ain't a blues instrument - think again. Terry (Leadfingers) was fantastic, as was Linda Goodman on the washboard.

Thanks for the pix, Vince! I submitted a few "suggested captions" -- I guess Vince has to do something in his software for them to appear. Just tried to identify some of the individuals. Hopefully you can see what a fine time we all had, and what a beautiful spot West River is. Start planning NOW to come next year! That's October 2-5, 2009!

Mike, the Moose Turd Pie group consisted of all of the Getaway attendees among the many people involved in a project making a CD of various people singing Utah Phillips' songs, with all profits to go to Utah's widow, Joanna. I think there are about 28 tracks so far, with some very big names among them. Should be released in the spring, I think. Dan Schatz and Jacqui Morse are the movers and shakers on this project, so you could PM either of them for more details. At the Getaway concert they did Utah's song, "Singing Through the Hard Times." If you don't get the "Moose Turd Pie" reference, you need to bone up on your Utah Phillips lore.

A wonderful Getaway indeed!

Vince-

Very well done and there is firm evidence that the C. Fox Smith workshop actually happened.

I'm not even home, having stopped in my brother's place in Brooklyn.

My brain is pretty much fried and it will take me a couple of days to process all the wonderful memories cluttering my brain.

Thanks again to the FSGW for organizing this very special weekend gathering.

Cheerily,

Wow !! I never imagined a Getaway where I didn't pack enough summer clothes ! The weather was amazing and the people grand. I'm stil processing an amazing combination of music and well..... unique experiences. I didn't bring a video camera and when I wasn't rolling on the floor on Saturday night (or was it Sunday morning--that's a bit of the blurr....) It was an amazing exerience.

The Boberts Blues Jam absolutely rocked the house in a honky tonk, outside of time kinda way. Now Janie, I can't say I'm not sighing with relief that some of those pictures didn't survive. However Jacqui also has photos .... I wait in trepedation...

Peter T and LEJ absolutely have to post the Full Moon Blues they put togehter during workshop.

More as It beings to process.

So much love and laughter

That Bobert Blues Jam was smoking all right, and the late night dancing at various spots was something to make your jaw drop. Hanging out with Peter T and having deep talk with him and lonesome and --wait for it--Bearded Bruce, and so many other conversations and songs my puir haid is still reeling.

It was very strange--from the moment we headed south from Baltimore to the moment we re-entered the airport road on the way out Monday, it was like the bubble that Dorothy wakes up from at the end of Oz. It was just a natural continuation picking up where last year's ended, and it was unphased and untouched by the passage of time in between. Kind of like passing the signpost on the highway up ahead, and entering the Twilight Zone.



Special thanks to Dani, Tink, Mary, Janie, Annie and Charmion for their contributions to the Annual Collection of Memories of Perfect Pulchritude.

And to hundreds of others, for good times, and rip-roaring good music.

Art, please tell us you are talking about the Sunday night concert and not the pre-dinner "show" in Peace Lodge....and I am forever in your debt for showing me how to use the coffee press in my hour of need!


Seriously magical moments....Something like 4:00 am Sunday morning....Barry and Mick making great music in between insults....Keith wandering in a little after 5:00 am to share and join in with his music....LEJ singing Apolitical Blues....Genie's delightful music and spirit....beautifully written songs by Marion....she had most of us in tears in the regional industries workshop with a remarkable song she had written....Carl's amazing playing and singing and leadership - and his amazing reportoire of songs....Amos capturing all of us in the magic of a song he had written straight from his heart....A solitary walk through the woods behind the cabins with big downed trees sporting jewel-toned fungi and moss on logs so green it glowed....observing Bill and Rita's son and noting what a fine young man he is - how could he not be, coming from those two sets of genes, watching Elena and Holly enjoy themselves thoroughly, such beautiful girls, both inside and out.

The special warmth and loveliness of Rita and the pleasure of seeing she and Bill perform together at the concert - first time in their 30 year history at the Getaway!

Getting to spend a lot of time with Linda Goodman - an absolutely delightful soul if ever there was one - a wee little woman with such heart!

Tinker and Sins - I see you once a year, but that is all it takes with kindred spirits to know we are connected at our cores.

Falling in love with Joe's blue eyes, bright smile and lovely, sane spirit, like I do every year.

Dani, Elena, Holly and I walked over toward the end of the Utah Phillips Tribute and sat outside on the steps, waiting to say goodbye to so many in there that we love before hitting the road Sunday evening. The reprise of "Singing Through the Hard Times" drew us up the steps into the infirmary to stand outside the door and join our voices with the rest. To hear all these voices of all these different people raised together in a song such as this seemed the embodiment of the spirit of the Getaway.

I say this every year, and I mean it every year with the same fervor as the first time - it is a fine and rare thing that you FSGW folks have created out of your love of the music and your rich hearts and minds. I am so grateful to be invited to share in this one weekend that has become such a blessing and grace in my life.

Oh, I nearly forgot. Joe Offer and I both slept with Blake Madison.

This was maybe my tenth Getaway. It was the best weather ever! I especially enjoyed reconnecting with an old friend, Jim Bean of The Beans. For a few years, Jim and I worked at the same drug program and sang together alot and even did a few gigs. The Getaway is like a musical reunion. I meet with people who I usually see only once a year at the Getaway and it feels like we're just getting up from our last day last year (I hope that makes sense). I was a bit under the weather physically 'cause I had an infected tooth that wasn't calming down the way it was supposed to with the antibiotic. I actually went to the cabin after dinner on Saturday for a quick nap before the evening concert. It ended up as a full night's sleep! That is a Getaway first for me. I am sorry that I missed so much good music. Thanks to Songster Bob for helping me with the words to "Louise" at the Sunday night concert. It seemed that the audience was singing along and when I forgot the words, it looked like everybody else had forgotten them, too. Very strange. Well, I must go back to work.

I suspect you will all enjoy Genie's video's. She was recording most of the singarounds in the Peace cabins, so you will hear the banter. She also recorded the concerts.

I won't reveal the person, but one of the funniest moments ever happened one morning. Only at a music camp! I was cursing that Spaw wasn't there to catch it, because it would have become a rambling story thread, and would have starred the Reg boys. I had come back to sneak in a shower. Afterwards I am at the sink, shaving, and the door opens and someone comes in and goes into the toilet stall to have a morning constitutional. He didn't see me because the door opens towards me. It is quiet, and the usual assorted grunts and burps and other forms of toilet melodies are going on. Suddenly it goes quiet for about 10 seconds, then the person in the stall sings:

Hallelujah, Hallelujah


In a beautiful and rousing Gospel fashion. Then the toilet flushes. I had a hard time not swallowing my toothbrush. The timing was impeccable.

By the way, the cabins were wonderful, but what the hell was that greasy smudge on the window of the door in the Peace cabin. You would think they would clean them things. It looked like two quarter moons kissing, with little wispy marks all around them. I think I will write to the camp and complain.

On a serious note, thanks to Matt Watroba for introducing me to it, as well as Anne Hills and David Roth for writing it, for the song "That Kind of Grace". I hadn't sang it for quite a while, and came on it while rummaging through my song sheets (a habit of mine at Getaways). I love dearly when this gathering of supremely talented and savvy folksingers come together, and they listen, and then contribute to your song. It is a joy that one can only know when singing in front of other performers and fans of this music. Standing in front and getting the full effect of the gathered voices ....... I just have a hard time describing what flows through one's soul when it happens. Thank you, FSGW, for doing what you do. You have impact on me that I don't know how to repay other than to say from the bottom of my heart that I thank you.

All the best,

Mick

Thanks to all that asked about Susette. We left in a hurry on Sunday at noon, and didn't get to say goodbye everyone, sorry about that.
    I took Susette to the hospital in Silver Spring. We spent the afternoon and the evening there, but eventually they found that she had passed a Kidney stone. Very, very painful, but it's all over and she's doing well.
    Sweet Dani arranged for Pete and Grace Kraemer (who saved us big time) to bring our second car home, since we'd had to come in two cars, and everything came out well in the end.

Good Getaway.

The raucous noise from some midnight porch may pour
An Offer made, to up and close the door
In moony darkness such noise may never cease
But fear not that moon, for it is the Moon of Peace

Chorus
Moon of Peace, shine in our hearts tonight
Your glowing orb still lingers in my mind
though the window pane is cold, thy grace is bright
How can I leave such memories behind?

Once a railroad bum on his way to some new town
was collared by a bull on night patrol
With his tattered, weathered knickers hanging down
Butt the bum just smiled, and let the moon shine from his soul

Chorus

Bodhran solo

Oh Moon, constant companion of my life
Of thy face, great poems truly have been writ
I'll toot thy praises on my silver fife
While on your mighty throne thy glory sits!

Chorus

Bagpipe coda

IS that a moon I see?
On the doorway glass?
Or just a photograph
Of some folky's ass?
Or a drunken glow
From a fallen torch?
No I think, it must be
Lonesome E-jay's zorch.

See that man, backed up to the doorway
Dropping trou, drunk as a lord, hey
He ain't mad, it's just the crazy night
Maybe he had too much whiskey
Songs and ladies made him frisky
Let's just tell him
Thanks for the pale moonlight.

Leadfingers,
Yes, Genie's laptop was actually recording during parts of Bobert's Blues Band.
I'm looking for a way to make 'em available to selected Mudcatters (notably the ones that are in 'em) short of postin' 'em on that there Ewe Toob.   
O' course if any of the perpetrators -- er, participants -- wanna keep 'em away from the prying eyes of the other Mudcatters, I'm open to brides.

Genie
(Currently in Greensboro, NC, recovering from 2 all-nighters and a third most-of-nighter at the Getaway.   It's all Big Mick's fault. Plus Amos, Carl, Ron Davies, Marion, Claire, Tinker, Steve, and a few other crazy people. *g*)

Tinker: "Peter T and LEJ absolutely have to post the Full Moon Blues they put togehter during workshop."

Tink, the full moon actually happened the night BEFORE Bobert's Blues Band (well, actually, about 4 AM Sunday). But some people will be relieved to know nobody had a camera. ;D
