2019 FSGW Getaway coming soon!

The Folklore Society of Greater Washington's annual Getaway weekend is getting close! This year's weekend of singing and picking and workshops and jam sessions and schmoozing will be held Friday evening October 4 through Monday morning October 7, at the West River Conference Center on an inlet of the Chesapeake Bay. If you've been to the Getaway before, you know what a good time it is. If you've never been, now is the time! You'll love it! The site is beautiful, the people are welcoming, and the music is wonderful.

You can find lots more information about the Getaway, and an application form, at www.fsgw.org/getaway. (the clicky-maker didn't work, but that url should).

Come for the whole weekend, or part of the weekend, or just for a day -- you'll love it, and we'd love to see you!

Oh, I wish I could go, but I'm getting back from Scotland a week before the Getaway, and I'm just not sure I have the stamina to make another trip. Hope I can go next year.

Joe,

You will be flying over MD a week before, and can't just make a layover for the week before going home? Sounds like a real savings- two destinations with one trip.

If you make it to the Getaway, Skarpi, you are guaranteed a little concert!

Wait, this is a DC-area thing? I have always thought it was in the UK. Why have I not been going all these years??!?

I miss it. I don't drive huge distances these days (although it's not that I couldn't, and I'm not sure I could get bedding onto a train.
But I really miss the Getaway, and all the folks I've met there.
(I'm also planning to visit my cousin in NYS in Oct, but I can't remember when THAT is.)

I think I'll do it. What about the idea of staying with people and coming in each day? The reason I ask is that I"ll be just coming off a camping trip...

Loved the one time I went, but 8,000 miles is a bit far this year.

If coming to the 2019 Getaway, please bring something to donate to the silent auction, and also bring cash or a checkbook so that you can bid on some desired or interesting object, CD or book in the auction.

The auction is a significant source of funds for the Getaway Scholarship fund. Many folks have had to avail themselves of scholarships in order to attend, me included, over the years. The Getaway would have been much poorer in fellowship and shared music if some of those folks had not been able to attend.
