Whew! They're here, safe and sound! Ian just called me at work to say they left Philly at 2 am (Max!!??). I'm heading over to feed them some lunch and bring them to school for their Last Gig. I hope they don't mind I've planned a quiet evening for them! (Of course, any 'Catters who showed up at my door would be welcome...)
I invite you to use this thread to say your fond farewells- it's been a wonderful time!

Good bye, and adeiu and farewell...tra la laa..

Hi All Ian And Sam P here! Really enjoyed the show last night -what a great way to spend your penultimate night in the USA! Bill is asleep like a baby on the couch, and we are trying to convince willy (alisons dog) that we aren't burglars! The drive was longer than we expected. Somehow we got the crazy idea that if we parked up and all went to sleep on the way there, that we would wake up 30minutes later! We woke up after two hours...Whoopsee!
WORD!

Wow! What a great trip! Have a good day and then a good flight home. I especially enjoyed your visit with me and have watched your trip very carefully since then. It sounds like quite the adventure. Maybe someday I can do the same thing in England.

In the meantime, thanks for blessing us with your good humor, your beautiful music, and the harmony in your souls. You are, as I told you when we parted, my brothers and my friends.

Bill, I rang Lorna a few days back and left a message for you. We're having a session at the Six Bells in Barrow on Humber this Saturday night. If you aren't jet lagged to hell, it would be grand to see you and hear the yarns.

I'm off to Eric's now for some grub, then we're Jugging later. He thinks he might be able to make it to Barrow on Saturday.

See you soon, anyway, mate.

It was wonderful to see you again, Bill, and to meet Sam and Ian. What a wonderful gift you gave all of us last night (even if I didn't get the view of Sam's knees that the viewers at home did!) Thank you all for coming to visit us, and thanks to Max for putting on the shindig, and starting the whole ball of wax!!! Come back again soon--maybe for the getaway in the fall? Safe journey, and a quick recovery from jetlag!

Love,

Glad I caught some of the radio show last night. It was 53 weeks ago tonight that I sat with Bill, Allan, Tiger, Vixen, Renaud, and others on the bank of the river behind Vixen's house in Connecticut. I still tell people about that amazing night (as were all the other stops on last year's adventure). From what I saw last night, this years trip was filled with the same spirit of love and music. Bill, you are a true ambassador. Thanks for caring so much about all of us to take mudcat to yet another level. Oh, yeah, and you, too, Max.

It still breaks my heart that I missed seeing you guys at Annamill's. But it's a good thing I didn't go. I ended up in a hospital emergency room on Sunday night with something nasty, although not deadly.

Maybe you'll come back again next year? (Pretty please?)

Saying goodbye? No, not my style. Our visit and their time was too abbreviated and I think "See you later" is much more like it!

It took quite a time for Bill and I to finally get together in 3-D and warm as our friendship has been here at the 'Cat, I expect more to happen in the 3-D world in the future. Bill is the true "Ambassador-At-Large" of this place and his trips and gatherings have marked significant events and changes in the 'Cat's history. He is more than can be said about him. Karen, Wayne, Connie, and our kids all send the best to you. And to Sam and Ian, if you have read my other postings, you know what and how much I think of these fine young friends. I hope they feel as comfortable with us and in America as they do at home.....The future of our world and our music could not be in better hands.

A real side plus to this trip was to get to know Sam and Ian's parents here at Mudcat. We don't want to say goodbye to them either and I think Gill and Geraldine(Jellybeam) have been pleasantly surprised we are not all complete loonies. I hope we see both of them around the 'Cat in the future.

I'm only sorry that I even missed out on the breakfast the morning they left here and that there was so little time for more music. Trust me guys, I cook better than Connie and I might even have done well enough to lure you into another day.

Bill has yet to visit Kentucky and Tennessee and I would love to make that part of the trip with him when he decides to go there. They are my second home and travelling them with Bill would be a treat. We also have already gotten a CD to a venue here and they're interested in knowing when you'll be back. I think Connie would make a fine agent for somebody!

Be safe travelling and share a few thoughts of us with all you meet back home. So for now..........

See You Later !!!

Spaw

My heart is still full, especially as last night brought back a flood of memories and feelings from last years's visit with Bill and Allan.

Right now I am thinking of writing a lament called "Will I ever leave Wyoming and be closer to you all?!"

Well, here's hoping we can all make it to the Getaway!

Safe trip and many more returns to us!

Hi all It looks like the whole trip has been a great success; but I knew it would be. The three of them make a good sound. Although you are all sorry to see them go I cann't wait for Friday when I get Bill back home. No doubt he will sleep for more than a week. Thanks to all who have tried to feed him . You would not have any trouble with the other two, I know Sam has hollow legs. I would have loved to have seen you all again. Love to you all and Bill will be back in the good old U.S.A. very soon.

Hi All

I have just got back from Bevely Folk Festival and finally am about to go to sleep in my own bed tonight!

Beverly went really well, I had such a good birthday party. I had a HUGE cake that Jezabel had cooked with the tune 'Hommage a Edmond Parezure' (Spelt correctly) written note perfect on it, it tasted fantastic!!

I was also running a Birthday band. We had two workshops and ran up to a perfomance of 20mins today and it went really well.

no doubt Ian will tell you a bit more.

Well, whilst you Beverlonians where coping with Sam & Ian's jet lag, I was gently trying to coax Bill back down. That dood is so high. After seeing Bill trying to cope with sleep deprivation in Muenster, I thought the poor lad would be near dead after this trip to the US. None of it!

He rang up at 6pm on Saturday night, and said he wanted to crash the session in Barrow. Eric came over for the do, and it really was a fantastic evening. We finally chucked in the towel at 2am, and then retreated to my gaff. Eric and I were pretty exhausted, but Bill was on top form, and fuelled by tea, he gave us the lowdown on the trip. Rock & Roll! It was getting light as he left.

I think he's coming back over to you guys as soon as he can.

Ian S here. Just got back from beverley festival -it really did ROCK!
I was going to write you all to thank you again for your hospitality, but I slept for a few hours and then we had to leave for beverley!

Sam went home last night at 6pm-ish, but I decided to stay, and was still playing tunes at 5.30am! This morning myself and Jezebel were almost the last to leave, as usual. The man Sam Pirt can't take the pace -he kept trotting off to his tent in the middle of the day to sleep -wierd!

Naemanson -I can't wait to see the Sam's redneck picture..
Anyhoo going to sleep now, I'll be back with tales of madness and mayhem..or maybe not

WORD!
Ian S (makes funny back-hand movements in european sign language...with a geordie accent)
