Many last-minute changes this year! Too many, in fact. Several folks we'd counted on and looked forward to seeing won't be able to make it after all, but in spite of that, I'm pretty sure we'll have a good time -- we always do!

So check out the latest version of the schedule, and come prepared to have a great weekend! See you there!

How could I have forgotten to mention autoharps, Bill? Autoharps are indeed welcome. Of course, there's always the possibility of a banjo consuming it. They are voracious creatures after all.

"guitar players, fiddlers, mandolinites, and banjoists, as well as dulcimer players, bassists"

and this is when? A scheduled event or special event? And why...*snffff*... are you excluding autoharp players?

(well, it's been known to happen...at Winfield, I'm told, some of the hot-shot groups would quickly tune up a half step if an autoharp appeared...)

Well, right after the Bobert Blues n Floozies Hip-shakin Extravaganza, I will be leading a Bluegrass and Old Time jam and song circle. We can use guitar players, fiddlers, mandolinites, and banjoists, as well as dulcimer players, bassists and anyone who is interested in singing out strongly.
I want to emphasize old style Bluegrass (think Little Maggie, Jessie James, Dark Hollow, Wabash Cannonball), Old Timey Tunes (like Willow Garden, Will the Circle be Unbroken, Poor Wayfaring Stranger), Stanley and Carter Family Tunes (Katy Daley, East Virginia Blues, High on a Mountain) and stick mainly to the songs of the tradition, not so much the fiddle tunes. Especially songs with choruses we can all join in on. We'll end with Will the Circle Be Unbroken.
Hope to see a lot o' y'all!!

Thanks Dan, Bill & Barry! I know that we're going to thoroughly enjoy the Getaway whether we can match songs or not & I'm so excited about coming along *huge grin* And with all that running around between workshops I might even lose a pound or two!!!

Hoarse Barry? I think I'll be hoarse after the first evening of our trip!! I have various remedies, mostly involving a flask!

Bill, are you concerned about your "shorts"?

Hillary don't fret about matching a song or two over the weekend, you'll be quite full with singing before the 1st evenings over, by the 2nd evening you may be hoarse.

Dan is right! And at this camp, the area is flat and venues are fairly close together, so running to do ˝ of each workshop is possible.
(We have 'elements' of festivals...like the short concerts....and the late night singing in several locations. The UK folks who have been with us the last 7-8 years have adapted really quickly! )

Hil and Richard, I hope you find workshops you'd like to add some songs to, different as they are. One that I'm leading ("Beggars, Tramps and Bums") is specifically designed to include traditions from both sides of the pond. There's a rich vein of music and lore about bums, hobos, and tramps dating back to the Great Depression and further in the US, and there are wonderful English, Scottish and Irish songs about beggars as well. I'm really hoping we get examples of both. I think one of the neat things about the Getaway as it has evolved is that we get a mix of approaches and traditions. By organizing the workshops topically, there's a lot of variety in every hour.

Dan

Looks like there's been a lot of hard work going on, well done Nancy & the Crew!!!

The themes (workshops) and styles seem very different from the festivals we go to here in the UK, 26 so far this year & 3 more before Christmas! We're really looking forward to hugging, meeting & hearing everyone and hope that we'll each be able to find a song to match a workshop or two over the weekend!

Thanks for the kind words, folks!

Watch this space! Further changes pending! As of today, we've had yet another glitch, so changes will have to be made. As soon as we figure out what to do, we'll let you know.

As for Tim Wells, I really don't know much about him, other than that he IS from North Carolina. As for whether he's "your" Tim, I guess you'll just have to wait and find out!

More later...

OK, folks! Here it is! Finally!

Sorry it's taken us so long to get this posted -- we've dealt with most of our last-minute problems (we hope!), and have only a couple of little things still hanging fire. The link takes you to Saturday's schedule, and there's a link at the top of that page that will take you to Sunday's. Once again, Dean has incorporated that nifty feature whereby you can place your cursor over a workshop and get a short descriptive blurb.

We'd really like NOT to make any more schedule changes, but of course it's always possible they may be necessary. If you are a workshop leader and we have you in two places at once, let us know and we'll change it. If you'd just like to BE in two (or more) places at once, well, join the club. Better too much than too little, right? And we still haven't found a leader for a cloning workshop...

Enjoy! And we'll see you at the Getaway!

Nancy

Bobert, here is the registration form. Or, you can go to www.fsgw.org, click on "Fall Getaway," scroll down below the price list, and register on line.

Barry, I know you're just bursting to see the schedule, and it will be along very soon. We've had a few 11th-hour problems with workshop leaders changing their plans (sound familiar?), but it's almost ready. Rest assured we'll announce it here when the magic moment arrives!

Meanwhile, just be content knowing the Getaway will be terrific, as always!

Bluesy Chick Songs?

Woke up this morning when the chickens were crowing for dawn.
And on the right side of my pillow, I found my good man had gone.
On the pillow, he left a note,
"I'm sorry, Jane, you got my goat."
Now time to marry, no time for settling down...."


Bessy Smith, just for one example. She also did the female version of "Black Mountain Blues which declares:

Going back to Black Mountain with a razor and a gun
Gonna cut him if he stands still, lord,
I'm gonna shoot him if he runs.


There's no shortage if you know where to look.

I talked to a member of the the program committee yesterday...they are working steadily.

The problem with the Getaway...if you wanta call it a problem...is that we have way more talented & competent attendees than time slots to put 'em in. Same thing with the evening concerts.... everyone can't be on every time. Nice 'problem' to have, huh? *grin*

   The really nice thing is that everyone can listen to or play music of almost any type..(why, even 'trad folks' sometimes!) until they wear out.
