Just back from an evening at the Suttons' with Gregg and Susan Csikos, who are also known as Rambling Sailors. (Warning, amazingly dialup hostile site.) It was a very small circle, just bedlamhouse, ladyat, the Sailors, and I. They're friends of the Suttons, passing through on tour. ladyat laid out food for a much bigger group. We ate and I convinced Strider their dog that I was a nice monkey. We had a couple of hours of music, then we played a game of I Drank What?, we had another couple of hours of music, and then folks started fading. A lovely evening, and if you like sea-themed folk music, you should check these folks out.
I really hope that bedlamhouse and ladyat enjoyed a quiet evening and will be ready to do it again, instead of deciding that since nobody showed up they shouldn't bother next time.
