Margaret -- Putnam counts!!! My partner, steve is in the Hudson Valley -- Dutchess though

Thosp -- how come we don't see you at NY concerts -- there's a great one tonight in Greenwich Village at PS 41 -- Bruce Molsky - great talent!

Steve S - ah yes, the "Boulevard of Death" -- I live about 50 feet from that wonderful place -- if this were not a big election year - it would not be an issue -- burglaries are up big time in Forest Hills -- because all the cops are sitting on Queens boulevard waiting for someone to go 30.5 miles per hour -- and the elderly people who start crossing when the "don't walk" sign starts flashing, expecting to get all the way across the widest part before the light changes -- don't get me started!!!

Susan DT - close enough - wish i could make it to the sing -- we have a gig -- let us know for next time!!

Keep it coming!!

Yeah, Larry's band recently played the People Voice Cafe, and one of Joy's bands -- Water Sign -- will be there on Saturday, April 28, 2001. I am certain Joy will fill us all in with the details.

And any 'Catters around NYC this coming July 15 are welcome tc celebrate Woody Guthrie's 89th birthday at a Round Robin Songfest at CB's 313 Gallery. That's on a Sunday night from 7 to 9 o'clock. Yes, I know Woody was born on July 14, 1912, but CB's management wasn't ready to hand over a Saturday night spot for a Woody Guthrie Birthday Bash on pure speculation. But if we can pack the house this year, then just maybe...

Anyway the Birthday Bash will feature Carlos Rosello (punk-rocker of The Krays and The Infiltrators), Erica Smith (of the legendary trio Ida Red and now of Erica and the Tumbleweeds), Jessica Feinbloom (hostess of many a fine ice cream social), Joel Landy (host of the Songs of Freedom TV program), Rich Fried (just a regular guy), and me (a real folksinger). $5 cover lets you stay the whole night and hear other acts as well. CB's 313 Gallery is at 313 Bowery in Lower Manhattan.

Anyone show up for Bruce Molsky on April 13 who didn't check in with Joy at the gate?

The next big chance to say Howdy! is at the Bill Staines concert at the Advent Lutheran Church (Broadway & W. 93rd) on Thursday, May 10, 2001, at 8 PM. But there will be plenty of little chances, such as the open mike at the Triad Lounge (158 W. 72nd) on Wednesday, April 25, from 7 to 10 PM. If you want to perform, try to get there by 6:45 for sign-up.

I grew up in Jackson Heights, first on 81st Street between 37th and 35th Avenues -- there is no 36th Avenue in that part of Queens -- and later on 77th Street between 35th and 34th Avenues. I went to PS 69 and later to JHS 145 (now IS 145).

Since Rudy sold the Cafe Greco, there haven't been any folk acts that I know of at that venue, but from what I understand Jackson Heights is still a veritable hotbed of folkdom. You have Eric Levine in the neighborhood, and Susie Tanenbaum, and five -- count 'em, five -- board of directors members of the New York Pinewoods Folk Music Club. And you have all that good music at the Renaissance Charter School.

So are you coming to the Sunnyside Song Circle?

Margaret V- I'm not up that way too much these days -- work just wears me out and Steve is retired, so he mostly heads down to the city,-- except for when Steve has a concert -- (Woodstock Chamber Orchestra) -- the next is the first weekend of May. Saturday night in Kingston and Sunday afternoon in Saugerties (an all Mozart concert) Let me know if you're down this way --

with all these people in the NYC to Dutchess County area, we should have a small gathering sometime (when is always the question. Are any of you heading to the Old Songs Festival in June? There are tons of 'catters headed there this year.

Mary,

If May is not possible, perhaps you can still get to the April 22 Sunnyside Song Circle at Joel Landy's apartment? Also, maybe you can offer your own digs for a future session. In April we will decide if we want to hold one in June or wait until September. Right now it looks like we'll take a break for July and August.

By the way, do you get the NY Pinewoods newsletter? There's lots of good stuff in it. If not, you can call (212) 563-4099 and request a sample copy. That's also the number for Folk-Fone.

Hey NYC Catters, you are all welcome to run away to the country for our April 27 weekend Mudcat Gathering. Or anytime you are passing this way-- an hour south of Corning/Elmira NY-- holler us up.

We left Chicago to come here in '94. It SOUNDS like you are all FAR too busy with all that city livin' and could use a chance to set a spell. *G* Firefly season isn't far off either... and we can all go up to the spring to fetch water and set up there to pick by moonlight and firefly-light.

I'm a new catter, who lives in the Bronx. Another one of the notorious Board members of the NY Pinewoods Folk Music Club. If you're in town, look for us at the Bill Staines concert on Thursday, May 10th, at our Open Mike or the Queens Sing. In real life, I am Evy Mayer, Program Chairperson for the club. Say hello if you come to the concert. Strangely enough, this New York City club has a Memorial Day Weekend in Connecticut. We are having "Wild Goose Nation", Robin Paton, Michael Alpert and Mary Devlin (dance caller)on staff. For more info, e-mail me at: ukelady1@prodigy.net Just came home from NEFFA, which was wonderful, as usual. Had lots of fun in the "Laugh With Us! workshop, along with Anne Price, Mike Agranoff, and the wild and wacky "Woodchucks Revenge." You haven't lived until you've heard "Boxers and Socks With a Gun."

New York Pinewoods Folk Music Club also sponsors a community open sing in Brooklyn. It takes place the first Wednesday of every month at the Brooklyn Ethical Culture Society, 53 Prospect Park West, near 2nd Street in Park Slope. It runs from about 7:00 to 10:00 or 10:30 PM.

The next session of the Sunnyside Song Circle, which we hope will become a regularly repeating event, will take place from 2:00 to 6:00 PM on Sunday, May 20, 2001, at my own house: 41-05 47th Street, just off Skillman Avenue, in Sunnyside, Queens, NY. For information you can call me at (718) 786-1533. We will probably take a break for the summer and plan our next session for September.

I know I am repeating myself, but New York Pinewoods Folk Music Club sponsors or cosponsors SO MANY events that the only way of keeping abreast of all of them is to read our monthly newsletter. We will send you a free sample copy if you call our phone number and leave your name and mailing address: (212) 563-4099. That's also the number for Folk-Fone, where you can hear a recorded listing of nearly all the folk music events taking place in and around New York City. We update the message every week.

Meanwhile, we expect to see oodles and oodles of 'Catters at the Bill Staines concert on Thursday, May 10, 2001. It takes place at the Advent Lutheran Church, Broadway & West 93rd Street, at 8:00 PM. Join up on the spot, and the concert is free. And you can say "Howdy!" to Evy, Joy, me, and the rest of our crew.

Yes, a very fine picnic. Except for the time kytrad tried to poke me in the ribs with a cane for singing the following two verses to The Folksingers' Ball. The tune is that of The Ball of Kerrymuir.


Utah Phillips asked Jean Ritchie: If it is not a chore,
Would you kindly honor us,
By playing dull some more?

Chorus:
Wha'll hae ye, lassie?
Wha'll hae ye noo?
The ane wha hae ye last time,
He canna hae ye noo!

Then Ritchie answered Phillips:
I'll glady pluck my string,
If you'll return the favor,
By learning how to sing!

Repeat chorus.


I understand the two verses are based on a true interchange.

For many more lysrics to this exceptionally fine cybersong, look in the Digital Tradition.

Greetings to all NY metro 'Catters:

The following ditty is to be sung to the tune of "Frankie and Johnny" (traditional). New words © Stephen L. Suffet 2001.

Frankie walked into the Triad,
Ordered a bottle of beer,
Said to the hefty MC,
Is the open mike around here?
Do I pay five bucks?
Can I do two songs?

Ain't gonna tell you no story,
Ain't gonna tell you no lie,
You can do two songs in this classy joint,
That's enough to to make you cry.
You pay five bucks,
And you do two songs!

New York Pinewoods Folk Music Club has a beautiful new home for our Traditional Folk Music Open Microphone, held on the third Wednesday of each month. Next date is tomorrow: June 20, 2001.

The Triad Lounge
158 West 72nd Street
Near Broadway on the easily accessible and oh-so-hip and trendy Upper West Side of Manhattan, New York City.

Sessions run from 7:00 to 9:45 PM and will begin PROMPTLY! Sign-up starts around 6:45 PM. There is no lottery. Performers appear in order they choose a sign-up. Ask for David Kleiman if you want to perform.

Admission is $5 at the door and everyone must pay, performer or not. Purchase of 2 drinks is expected. This space includes astage, a sound system, wait-staff, and a bartender. Stage time: 2 songs or 8 minutes, whichever come first. If you sign up after #15, you will only get to do 1 song or 4 minutes, so get to the Triad on time. Sign up really late and you may get frozen out all together. Post-session pig-out at a local eatery should also be expected. We'll find a place that pleases both the vegans and the carnivores, as well as everyone in between.

While we bill this as a Traditional Folk Music Open Microphone, feel free to perform whatever music your big old heart desires, including contemporary singer-songwriter material. We are a very accepting crew. However, this is the place where dyed-in-the-wool traddies are both welcome and appreciated. So all you sea chantey fanatics, Child ballad enthusiasts, old-timey banjo pickers and fiddlers, uileann pipers, and acoustic blues juke joint jammers, here's your chance to turn out in force.

See y'all Wednesday!

Erica told me she would try to be there. Yes!

--- Steve

PS more is nice too, maybe we need to open up a recuting office on Times Sq. like the Army does... I can call the Army and ask them if that works...

Larry,

I heard a story on NPR this morning that the US Armed Forces is the single the biggest employer of musicians in the USA. 2,000 musicians in the Army alone. By the way, among those who served as a US Army musician is Pete Seeger.

Of course you don't have to take the Royal shilling -- or whatever the US equivalent is -- to play the Triad open mike. Just show up with your pipes in one hand and your five bucks in the other.

---- Steve
