To those potential Festival volunteers-

I just got an e-mail back from Rick Spencer and he says:

"Fear not. Meg is still in charge. The letters (invitations) are a bit late in going out, but I saw Craig working on them a few days ago and they should be there before long."

Cheerily,

I just want to get to one more Mystic festival before I leave the country.

There's no reason why this thread can't also be used for news of the festival. That's why I made the thread name generic.

I did get my volunteer form in the mail and I have mailed it back. I talked with Meg and she told me she has cut a deal with the Comfort Inn of Mystic. They are offering rooms for Festival goers at $99 pernight for those staying from Thursday to Sunday night. Just call and let them know why you are going to Mystic to get the deal.

I am also going to open discussions with the festival organizers to see if we can pull together a Mudcat gathering on the grounds. Will there be any interest if I do that?

Guy-

There are ample opportunities for making noise at this highest order sea music festival. You can join in refrains and choruses at concerts and workshops. You can also attend the late night free-for-all sings, and lead a song if you're intrepid enough to do so. Be cautioned that leading a song requires a good set of lungs and appropriate choice of key to gain attention from other prospective song leaders. This is definitely not your "Is this my turn to sing?" song circle. It might also help if you had some buddies clearing some space for you with whirling crowbars, though I've never seen this attempted.

The public late-night sessions susually take place in large open buildings such as a dance hall or the gallery restaurant. These are not the greatest singing spaces acoustically (try to place yourself with your back to a corner) but the singing/participation can be truly wonderful.

Chanteyranger, I too am trying to figure out my sked. Due to complications from my health problems, insurance issues, it has become necessary for me to commute back and forth for treatment PLUS keep working to keep my insurance in line. It has been a real struggle. Sometimes I do not know which time zone I am in. I have three residences: 1. my boat 2. My aprartment & 3. my home not to mention Alta Bates treatment center ***BG Hope to be there. WW

Guy-

Look forward to running into you, errr, meeting you at Mystic.

Maybe the Mudcatters could gather alongside the Joseph Conrad around 5 pm; that's usually a "transition" time and a quiet spot to gather, and near enough to other spots where things will be happening next. With the Conrad as a landmark, it's also a relatively easy spot to find.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Whoa, guys. Hold on. I have to coordinate this with the organizers before we can start something on the grounds. I'd hate to have the Mudcat declared persona non grata.

I am currently waiting for Craig to email me. I expect we will have no problem but we don't want to step on any toes.

Mmario, I think our intention is to do some singing. We wouldn't be Mudcats if we didn't. And THAT could be something that MIGHT cause some heartburn for the organizers. Please note, I am guessing on all this. They may be happy to see it happen. I just don't want to surprise them by taking a potential audience away from something they are trying to do.

Ron - The best advice I ever got for working as a volunteer at Mystic is that sleeping is a waste of time. If you can somehow go all weekend without sleep you will enjoy the experience all the better. In previous years I have managed to get through with between 8 and 12 hours sleep for the whole weekend. Of course, I end up napping in the car on the way home, to the consternation of the other drivers on the road...

I have been looking to organize a Mudcat session at this festival. Craig Edwards is organizing a session too. Our last messages agreed that would be good for the Mudcats to use as a get together. I will post more as I get the news.

Unfortunately I will not be able to participate. I have been accepted for a job on Guam Island in the South Pacific and have to report for work on June 16. I will not be on the continent that weekend.

Have a great time and please think of me when you gather.

What joy! Another fine voice to join the after hours singing. Norris Dale and I from Roll & Go will be doing our best as sound crew volunteers, probably working the North End Stage, but we're certainly looking forward to hearing some of the invited guests sing, and raising our voices when it's appropriate.

Understand that Tom Lewis will be there, Dick Swain and Nancy Matilla, Bob Webb, Louie Killen, Georgie Sea Island Singers, Forebitter, The NexTradition, Anita Best & Pamela Morgan, The Rum Soaked Crooks, The Morgans, Ye Mariners All, Bob Walser, Danny Spooner, Jerry Bryant, Marc Bernier, Don Seneti, Tom Goux, Jacek Sulanowski, Cliff Haslem, Dan Milner, Bonnie Milner, John Roberts, and a host of others.

Chantyranger-

You mean you've never heard that old hauling shanty "The Lincoln Park Pirates"?

Maybe by the Festival, we'll figure out a Mudcat signal so we can gather, or school together so to speak. We're not supposed to do anything "official" so it will have to be a deep dark secret, password protected. Maybe something like "Avengers, assemble!" or maybe we should all wear piano legs (or other broken tokens) around our necks?
