Ardelle In Washington Photos From Richard P. Blatchford and Live Broadcast of The 2012 NEA National Heritage Fellowships Concert

Dear Joey,

A cousin in Maine frequently forwards me pieces from Good Morning Gloucester.  She sent the one on Capt. Harold Burnham’s voyage to Washington.  I went to see Harold and the Ardelle this morning in Washington.  Penny (the cousin) said you might be interested in the pictures I took.

Why is a person from Maryland interested in Gloucester and the Ardelle?  Well, I was born in Lynn.  My dad was Gloucester born and bred.  He was James W. and had brothers who lived lifelong in Gloucester.  They were Roger (Gloucester police) and Howard (Gloucester postal service).  As a boy, I spent many summers in Essex at another uncle’s egg farm.  As a result, Essex marinas & boat yards and Gloucester have always been an interest.

If you like the pics, feel free to use them.  Just give credit to Richard P. Blatchford as the photographer.  :-)  That would be me.

Hello,

I’ve been following all of your coverage of Harold Burnham’s trip to DC and I wanted to make sure you and your readers know that the National Endowment for the Arts will be webcasting live the 2012 NEA National Heritage Fellowships Concert. It will take place on Thursday, October 4 at 7:30 p.m. EDT. To watch, all you have to do is go to www.arts.gov. During the concert, Mr. Burnham will be interviewed about his work by Nick Spitzer, the host of public radio’s American Routes.

Here is a link to more info: http://arts.gov/honors/heritage/2012-NEA-Heritage-Fellows-Concert.html.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Best regards,

Liz
