Anyone hear about a music happening down at the seaport this Sunday May 4? ( songs of the sea, sea chanties etc.) I wrote something down in my notebook but can't find details. ( maybe I'm getting mixed up with the Mystic festival.)

Greetings:

The Peoples' Voice Cafe, one of New York City's premier folk and acoustic venues, has long been housed in the Workmen's Circle Building at 45 East 33rd Street in Midtown Manhattan. Unfortunately, the building has recently been sold and the Workmen's Circle has until the close of business June 30 to vacate the premises. That leaves the Peoples' Voice Cafe out in the cold. It's currently looking for a new site to reopen in September, and the prospects look good that it will find one nearby. But one thing is certain: the three remaining shows this season will be the last ones at the current location. They will take place Saturday night, May 3, 10, and 17, each beginning at 8:00 o'clock. Doors open at 7:30.

The May 3 show will feature me and my friend Joel Landy, the May 10 show will be a tribute to the late Dave Van Ronk, and the May 17 show will feature the New York City Labor Chorus. Suggested admission is $12 for the general public and $9 for Peoples' Voice Cafe or Workmen's Circle members, but you are welcome to pay whatever you can afford. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Please click here for more information.

Be there!

I'm still here, along with my band, MacDougal Street Rent Party. We just did a gig at CB's 313 Gallery in the East Village on July 10, and our next one will be in Queens. Here are the details:

MacDougal Street Renty Party
Joel Landy • Eric Levine • Anne Price • Steve Suffet • Gina Tlamsa

present

Folk Music Night at the Aubergine Cafe
Saturday • September 17, 2005 • 8 to 10 PM

At the corner of 50th Street
Woodside, Queens, NY

There is no cover charge, but musicians' tips are appreciated.
For additional information please call 718-899-1735.


Meanwhile, I'm working on a CD due to be released in December. Stay tuned for details. What I can say now is that about half the songs will be my own creations, and the rest will be a mixture of traditional folk songs and covers. MacDougal Street Rent Party is providing vocal and instrumental accompaniment. I'm playing banjo on one song, Sally Ann, and mountain dulcimer on another, Shady Grove. Otherwise, I'm sticking strictly to voice and guitar.

Lorcan: We don't know what we are doing yet, but if you want to be in one of these CB's 313 Gallery songfests just give me a holler. However, the invitation will be to you as an individual, and it would not extend to your band. After our first show I made a decision that I wasn't going to invite groups to participate, just individuals. Among ourselves we can and do provide whatever instrumental and vocal back-up was need. I thank you for bringing Eric Levine and Gina Tlamsa along as your accompanists for the 2001 Woody Guthrie Birthday Bash, but now they are appearing as Eric Levine and Gina Tlamsa rather than part of Sorcha Dorcha.

I already hear someone asking, "Then what about MacDougal Street Rent Party"? Well, that's a special case because we are a core (corps?) of people who played the last three songfests together and have evolved into a de facto band by chance rather than by design. We all make a strong point of maintaing our own individual musical identities.

KateG: You didn't live at 8 Saint Mark's Place by any chance? You weren't one of my various roommates or roommates' girlfriends by any chance? Your apartment sounds freakishly like mine, down to the bathtub, kitty litter box, and steam pipe! :-)

Bathtub in the kitchen...what memories. My first apartment in NYC had a bathtub in the kitchen. It was up on legs and was so tall that the cat box fit underneath it, even with a cat inside. A plywood lid hinged down from the wall to make the only kitchen counter. Toilet was in a tiny closet and you had to be careful of the steam pipe when sitting down.

Attention all you 'Catters in the New York vicinity! It is once again time for some truly shameless self-promotion!


HOOT!

MacDougal Street Rent Party asks you to put on your black beret, light up a Gaulois, and let us transport you back to closing days of the Eisenhower era. A rag-tag band of friends have gathered in a rent controlled Greenwich Village pad to make joyful noise the only way they know how. A dollar gets you in, and if you can't afford a dollar, just let everyone take a swig of Mateus from your wine skin. The bathtub is in the kitchen, the toilet is down the hall, the Great Folk Music Revival is about to happen, and you're invited! Can you dig it?

MacDougal Street Rent Party is Joel Landy, Eric Levine, Anne Price, Gina Tlamsa, and Steve Suffet.

The dollar, the Gaulois, and the Mateus are mentioned only by artistic license. There admission for this event is now $5, smoking is no longer permitted, and while you can purchase alcoholic beverages at the bar, you may not bring in any from the outside. Also, we've moved a little bit southeast so we're now doing our thing, so to speak, in NoHo rather than the Village, and we're in a fully licensed club rather than in someone's apartment. Oh my goodness, how things have changed! Just try finding a rent controlled apartment anywhere in New York!

We will also be having with us our good buddies Jane Babits, Toby Fagenson, and Jessica Feinbloom. In addition, each of us will do a song or two individually as well as with the group. So it's going to be one heck of a hoot indeed.

Here are the details:

Second Annual Midwinter Hoot
Round Robin Songfest
Sunday • February 29, 2004 • 7 to 9 PM
CB's 313 Gallery
313 Bowery
New York City


That $5 cover lets you stay all evening and hear other acts as well. Or you can hurry home in time to see who won all the major Oscars, Either way, it's a cheap night out, so come prepared to sing along, clap, holler, and shout! For more information about the Midwinter Hoot, please call (212) 677-0455.

Be there!

Erica,

You missed a really great session, but a truly atypical one. The Triad booked a jazz combo into the lounge, so they moved the open mic into the theatre upstairs, a very classy place. No one bothered enforcing the 2-drink minimum, but I turned up buying three (soft) drinks anyway over the course of the evening. At 7 PM, there were only a handful of us there -- David K., Bob M., Rich F., myself, and a guy from the Bronx also named Steve -- so we started a song circle jam session. It was lots of fun. Over the next hour about a dozen more people drifted in, but David kept as a song circle rather than as a true open mic, a good move on his part. Mostly newcomers, including a young fiddler named Hannah. On one go around we had to sing a song out of our typical genre. For example, Bob did an a capella Scottish drinking song, I did Statesboro Blues, and David sang a song in Hebrew. Towards the end, Ellen W. came with some folks from her songwriters, including Dennis and Val.

We missed you. :-(

Important note to all in the New York metro area:

For the months of July and August 2001, New York Pinewoods Folk Music Club is considering holding the Traditional Folk Music Open Microphone out of doors, possibly in Central Park or Riverside Park. If this happens, we will run it as a singaround (round robin, song circle) rather than as a series of two-song mini-sets.

Please check our newsletter for details. You can get a free sample copy by calling (212) 563-4099 and leaving your mailing address. We will also put the information on Folk-Fone (same telephone number) and on our website. URL: http://www.folkmusicny.org

We should be back indoors in September.

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.

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!

Hi Jean- I have been to a Pinewoods picnic at your place. My one complaint was that you didn't change the weather and make it a bit cooler. I thought you could do anything. Ukelady

Weren't those two verses written by kytrad's son Jon? "Can you play dull some more?" is a favorite U. Utah Phillips quote. I once heard him say, "There's gonna be an entire dulcimer festival this summer. It's sponsored by No Doz."

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.
