These past weeks I’ve read a quite a bit posted by the London contingent and their opportunities to gather for tunes and such. I’ve got to admit that I’m green with envy. Sure, Will, Zina et al plan a great USA session for August but I must burn up some vacation hours pronto.
The basic plan involves my flying out to Salt Lake City, Scooping up my life-partner and then pointing the car towards The Music wherever it may be found. This location places us within reach of some really interesting sessions. Choices must be made and a few questions loom.
1. What protective measures should I consider for my 90 year old mandolin in a desert environment at this time of year?
2. Which are there the "must visit" sessions between Utah and Southern New England?
3. Are there any sessions where we might find ourselves unwelcome? :-/
4. What have I forgotten?
I’ve searched this site, along with others, to scope out what’s available, suitable, intriguing and possible session wise. I’ve sent out a few e-mails to those who’ve posted sessions which seem promising. I wonder if there’s a session or two yet to appear in cyber-space?
Zina’s timely discussion thread regarding instruments and the airlines answered a big question about what to expect at check-in.
I’m daily amazed by the power of this web site to bring enthusiasts of The Music together. I now ask the founts of wit and wisdom posting at thesession.org for sage advice, guidance, random thoughts, Adams or Pratchett quotes. You know, the usual fare.
Pro-active thanks & above all, Peace,
