Subject: Getaway 2016 coming soon!
From: Nancy King
Date: 08 May 16 - 03:28 PM

Yippee! Planning for the 2016 FSGW Getaway is well underway, and the Program Committee -- me, Carly Gewirz (Mudcatter "Carly"), and longtime Getaway-goers Kathie Mack and Lisa Null -- is ready for your ideas!

This year's Getaway will be held September 23-26 (NOTE -- earlier than usual!) at West River Conference Center on an inlet of the Chesapeake Bay. This is the same place we've been for the last several years, and it's a beautiful spot.

If you'd like more information about the Getaway, visit www.fsgw.org, scroll down a bit, and click on "Getaway" in the left-hand column. This lists the specifics for last year's event, but of course this year's will be similar. Complete, up-to-date information -- including an application form -- will be available on the FSGW site soon. Or you can put "Getaway" into the Mudcat filter box, set the time for 2-3 years, and you'll get more commentary than anyone could reasonably read.

We have a great lineup of special guests this year: We're delighted to welcome SALLY ROGERS, a marvelous songwriter and singer of traditional and contemporary songs. British-born DAVID JONES presents music-hall songs, stories, sea songs and ballads that will make you laugh or melt your heart. LARRY KAPLAN is a fine guitarist and singer-songwriter with a maritime bent. If you like songs of cowboys and other working men, STEVE CORMIER will fill the bill. GEOFF KAUFMAN, a shanty-man at Mystic Seaport, will share songs of New England and the sea. SARO LYNCH-THOMASON comes from Asheville, NC, with lots of Appalachian ballads and regional songs. And to top it all off, the trio BARE BONES (Bill and Rebecca Kimmons and their "spare rib" Dock Cutlip) will bring us exquisite a capella harmonies and gospel songs. All of these folks will be performing in mini-concerts and participating in lots of workshops.

We are now starting to put together a list of possible workshops. We've thought of quite a few, and we're ready for your suggestions. One of the great things about the Getaway is that we really do try to tailor the program to the interests of those attending, but that's hard to do until we know who's coming and what they'd like to do. So: please tell us if you plan to come, and what you'd like to see on the program. Are there workshops you'd like to lead, co-lead, or attend? Workshops you'd like to see repeated (or not)? We're open to all suggestions, and although not all of them will end up on the final list (we have only 2 days, after all, so not everything can make the final cut), we do promise to consider all ideas. You can post them to this thread, or PM Carly or me.

The Getaway is all about participation, so start participating now!

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Nancy

I gave some of these suggestions to Kathie already, but I'll post them here, too, to get things started:

ONE MORNING IN MAY---There are an incredible number of songs that happen in May, as I noticed at a recent sing or two that had nothing to do with the subject. It's Spring, things naturally happen and May rhymes with a whole lot more things than, say, April. General:"As I Roved Out", "Claudy Banks" Maritime: "The Rosabella", "Lord Franklin" Spring: "Hal-An-Tow", songs of workers' solidarity......You get the idea.......

KINGS AND QUEENS----Songs about them provide the easiest way for us singers of traditional music to collect any sort of royalties.....

FOOTWEAR----"Old Shoes And Leggings", "With My Pit Boots On", "O, Dem Golden Slippers", "Put My Little Shoes Away", Herring Boxes without topses, lack of footwear, Army boots that are never the right size and any other fitting or at least loosely fitting topics loosely fitting topics......Even pesky bothersome Shoe Flies.....

CIVIL WAR---Grant yourself a little Lee-way to get up the Hill Early, grab a Pillow or a Couch and Bragg about your side.....

VILE FLUIDS---Demon Alchohol, Jake, Honky Red, Supersonic Tonic, black frack waters, pollution, Love Potions (up to #9 and beyond), great green gobs of greasy, grimy gopher guts, excretions of all sorts, fountain water from Flint and Mrs. Murphy's Chowder....Bring your own vial.....

I am planning to be there.

Lately I have been very interested in the original songs of those parodies that are now better known than the originals. (Who besides Rick Spencer (who is a real singer) and I still sing Henry Clay Work's 1865 hit 'The Ship That Never Returned'? But everyone seems to know 'Charlie on the MTA.') I know of a couple of others but I am sure other folks know far more.

How about some loosey goosey spaces, with themes that aren't announced until the event? I remember enjoying Songs From A Hat, because it draws fascinating people who think like that : )

With double bonus points for more than one theme in a song as it progresses! Or is this a drinking game for another world.....

Sally!

Saddle!

Cannon!

Blackbird!

Go!

Clearly, it would be a master class : )

And he wants RULES, yet!

Thanks for the ideas, folks! It's getting to the point where we have to declare "enough!" -- we definitely now have enough to fill up the time. But we still do consider all ideas, though some of them may have to be put off until a future Getaway.

BTW, Mike -- we would LOVE to do doo-wop! It's a perennial favorite, but it takes just the right leader, and we don't know yet whether that person will be able to make it this year. We shall see!

Looking forward to seeing you all!

As for that beat, I don't need a shave, but a two-bit haircut that doesn't look like one might be nice.......He DID incorporate bits of kids' games and a lullabye into his signature song. There are quite a few folklore references tucked into Bo Diddley songs. But I seriously doubt it'll ever formally happen....
