Julius Lester came in with a music caravan. Bob Dylan was there, Pete Seeger, Theodore Bikel. But what they forgot about was that for about 100 miles around, [they] had some of the best traditional music ever. And we didn't have the consciousness then to pull that together, you know, to pull in those living legends of blues men and women who were right there - Worth Long, organizer for the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, talking about a movement festival in Greenwood, Mississippi in 1960s

Ladies, Gentlemen and Unkie Bud:

I have just registered for the 2012 Port Townsend Blues week. Booked and I'm bound to go. I hope that little guy Jed is on-the-ball this year.

This seems to be the best lineup of guitar instructors ever. Woo hoo!

Adjusting my meds,
Alex

I just counted on my fingers, this year is the 15 year anniversary of a casual comment that passed between a few folks at the '97 PT wrap, "hey, what's your email address? Let's keep in touch!" PT '97 was a notoriously excellent learning- and partying year, I for one will never forget it.

That foolhardy impulse to stay in touch was the genesis of what eventually evolved into WC.com, via a very circuitous route.

I will once again be boycotting Port Townsend
This year.
My loathings are simple: stupidity, oppression, crime, cruelty, soft music.

Aw.

I'm roadtripping it this year, preparing the Hudson Super 6 as we speak.

I remember it well and with great fondness. It was my third year at PTCBW, and by then, I had begun to grasp the rudiments. Jerry Ricks took us places I have never been since. Thanks for the flashback!

Hi all,
Just a reminder for those who will be attending, bring a portable recording device of some type.  You might possibly want a down vest (really!) for the cool evenings if they show, or wet weather gear of some type.  Wherever you're from in the lower forty-eight states or eastern Canada, weather is likely to seem really mild, and may verge on coolness at times.  I'm looking forward to reuniting with a bunch of you and meeting others of you for the first time.
All best,
Johnm

Here's my recording device. After playback of a windy field test outing I did some research and scored a fab Don King wig for my Zoom, just in case we're picking outside, which is fairly likely.
