We are coming to visit our daughter at Christmas who is studying at the Uni in S Dakota.

Does anyone have any ideas where we might hear any folk music or must see sights?

We are also intending to visit some friends in N Carolina at New year and possibly fly down to New Orleans - again any suggestions?

We are currently planning the trip and would really appreciate some help!

Sue and Bob vG

8 Pints, I forgot someone! You should contact SD Shad by PM. I think he's near the Uni. in S Dak. He and his wife are both musicians, so should know of things going on.

I have an email addy for him, which I think is still good. I'll send him a note about this thread as I am not sure how often he looks in anymore.

Thanx all for your assistance.

By way of background, Sue is a singer of traditional songs whilst I practice on my Northumbrian Small Pipes & occasionally sing!

Ideally we are looking to stay in local 'Bed & breakfast'/motel accommodation whilst we visit Vermillion SD, Asheville NC & New Orleans.

We shall be deciding on flights, etc this week-end so should have a clearer idea of our itinery by Monday.

Katlaughing, I will contact Shad as you suggest.

Thanks Open Mike & Katlaughing,

We hope to start at Vermillion where our daughter, Natalie, is 'reading psychology' (I thought psychology was inate in the female gender, only men need to study it surely!). Then sample some Cajun music around New Orleans, and finally finishing up in Asheville where Riley Baugus & Ira Bernstein have kindly invited us to their house-party over the New Year.

Katlaughing, I have not been able to contact Shad via email, but have forwarded message for him via PM that you might be able to relay.

Cheers,

Bob vG

RILEY BAUGUS?!

That nice man built my banjo! From a bag of old Vega tenor pieces, he fashioned a 5 string work of art that 'real' banjo players around here envy. They wish I would learn to play the damn thing, already. Don't tell Riley I can't, yet, OK?

What a small world.

If you make it this far, please come visit. We do indeed have a restaurant, and would love to plan an evening of food and music around your visit if you can make it!

Mudcatter Janie is down the street, too, and we'd love to meet you.

Dani

Sue and Bob, you really do want to meet Dani and Janie, and Dani, you do want to meet Sue, Bob and Natalie!

And an evening of good food and music when you get together, sounds wonderful.

Careful though Dani- give them plastic cutlery and paper plates or they'll start accompanying the music on empty wine bottles... (what? WHAT? no, it wasn't me- it was THEM!!)

"Whilst?" "WHILST?"

Methinks you are coming from farther away than we THOUGHT! Please do consider yourselves welcome. We love being tour guides here, and Hillsborough is a wonderfully charming small town, also near Duke Univ. and Univ. of NC at Chapel Hill (I'm told there's one hell of a music and folklore collection there!).

It seems as if you'll be in NC around the holidays: consider spending some Christmas time here! It's usually lovely weather, and things in the food business are quiet at that time: we're even considering closing for a few days.

What is the distance between Hillsborough and Asheville?

Could you recommend anywhere for us to stay?

Noreen,

You had your chance last week while you were with the Shellbacks touring New York & New Jersey!

Dani,

As you suspected, we come from 'overseas'!

To be precise, Manchester, UK (I must confess to having played for Manchester Football Club: not to be confused with Manchester United! The former is a rugby club founded in 1860 and established the right to its title long before Newton Heath AFC changed its name to 'United')

Can you PM with your contact & address details?

Thanx again,

My partner, Sandy, has relatives in NC, so I very much hope to be back myself before too long ...! Therefore, watch out Dani! [Remember me from the Getaway?]

There is a lot of old time music around Ashville, NC and Bernstein should know what is going on. You might contact Warren Wilson College near Ashville and see if they have anything planned.

I do indeed remember you, Alan! And well do I hope that the Getaway spawns even MORE GettingsAway!

Janie and I have toyed with the idea of hosting some kind of music gathering ourselves, to get a fix in the off-season. We'll toss that idea out later in our spare ;( time.

Meantime, please do come when you can: Old England or New England, or anywhere in between, we welcome Mudcat visitors. Those inclined to perform we'll book at our restaurant on a Friday night. Those inclined not to we'll just gather 'round the fire and sing or talk the night away, or go find some music with a local flair.

Sounds great, Dani!
I have also just received an email from an American morris dancing, shanty and folk singing, musician friend of mine, Peter Contrastano. Previously he lived in New England and ran the Portsmouth NH, Shanty Festival.
At one time he lived in England for a while - he was even on the national committee of the English Folk Dance and Song Society for a year or two - and he is now moving to Cary, near Raleigh NC. Is that anywhere near you? I'll give you his email address if you PM me or send me an email (see the list from the Getaway). I don't think he is a Mudcatter.

Bob, none of my emails to SDShad have been kicked back, so I expect to hear from him as soon as he has a spare moment. He and his wife are both post-graduate students, as well as have a few other things going on, so sometimes it takes him a few days to get back to me. I'll let you know as soon as I hear from him.

Katlaughing,

I have passed on SDShad's name to Natalie who might contact him personally as she is studying in Vermillion, University of South Dakota. We are thinking of hopping down to New Orleans, mid holiday, to sample the delights of Cajun, Zydeko & my son James is also into traditional jazz.

I think we are going to be quite busy!

It would be really nice to appear at Dani's as well.

The anticipation is mounting ...

Well fed, they are off to bed.

Not as much music as some might have liked, as we talked too much! And had the longest parade of instruments-not-played/playable in modern history. But we have tomorrow evening to look forward to! Who knew these two were Shellbacks! Now we know you might not get 'em back.

Another delightful group you all have sent us. Bob and Sue and their children and friend are exactly what you would expect from "friends newly met". Even provided the only thing even the best American hostess cannot: proper tea, including teapot, and careful instructions on the proper making of it. And, can you believe, homemade mince**** pies cleverly spirited past meat-sniffing customs officials!

Here's a toast to the Mudcat...

I'm looking forward to meeting you at the end of March when I come to visit Noreen and Barbara and go to the National Festival and the Lancaster Easter Maritime Festival.

What a wonderful thing mudcat is!!!

We had a great time with Dani and her delightful family. Everyone has made us feel so welcome. It was great to put faces to names, specially Dani and Janie.

Can't wait to meet up with other 'catters, hopefully tar heel soon and Karen when you visit UK (Can't you persuade Dani to make the trip with you so we can repay some of the wonderful hospitality???)

We are currently in New Orleans, had a brilliant time last night in a Jazz club, Donna's on N Rampart St. I felt like I needed to pinch myself - we were actually sitting in a bar in New Orleans listening to a fantastic band, so many wonderful experiences, what a shame we only have 2 weeks!!!!

Love to all Catters on both sides of the pond, and have a safe and happy New Year

Love from Sue vG, 8 Pints and all.
