Charlie Baum EFDSS cock-up (88* d) RE: EFDSS cock-up 27 Jan 10


The sculpture reminds me very much of the band organ behind the Denzel carousel at Glen Echo Park in Glen Echo, Md. At least that musical instrument is protected from the weather (not to mention vandals). Come to the Folklore Society of Greater Washington's Washington Folk Festival the weekend after Memorial Day (generally the first weekend in June) and hear the band organ, which sonically dominates a certain portion of the festival grounds. The volunteer restoration staff of the carousel at Glen Echo has even created updated punch tapes to run their historic band organ--it even plays Lennon-McCartney Beatles tunes as well as light classical, classic popular songs, and band works.
