Sunday Afternoon on the Porch, June 16
Bob Denton was on-island over the weekend, bringing along his North Shore session mate James Moriarty with his magic button box. James hails originally from Ireland (Kildare? Kerry? Kilkenny? Kilarney!) and now lives in Peabody, where he hosts local sessions. Bob has been a mainstay of the Edgartown sessions for the past two summers and it was great to see him again, if only briefly. Susie Bowman and Mary Wolverton also made an appearance, as did Bob's Windsor Mountain School classmate Roberta - which turned the afternoon into a forty-five year reunion of sorts; all great fun. Karen Lehman and James' family - wife, Brigitte, and son, Patrick - rounded out the guest list. Oh, and let's not forget Ann Tucker, originally from Co. Clare, who stopped by to give us a little dance and conversation. The afternoon, which turned into night, became very interesting when James and I started swapping songs - we could have gone on longer had it not been for the lateness of the hour. I'm looking forward to more of this. Thanks, everyone, for the craic.
