Subject: NOMAD is an island
From: Jerry Rasmussen
Date: 07 Jul 05 - 10:20 AM

Actually, NOMAD is a folk festival, but Art Thieme's birthday is coming up (see thread) and he's very much on my mind. I also have an ulterior motive for starting this thread so early.. the festival isn't until early November. I've started working on a couple of workshops, and I wonder who else from the Cat is coming. I'll refresh this periodically, just to keep it on the screen. I'll be there performing alone and with the Gospel Messengers, and Shoregrass and dwditty are planning to come at this point. The deadline for performers to get their applications in is July 15th, and that's right around the corner..

So, anybody else made plans, yet?

Jerry

Greetings:

I just sent in an application with three proposals from myself and another with three proposals on behalf of my group, MacDougal Street Rent Party. As always, I would be happy if one of each is accepted. I know that Joel Landy, Anne Price, and Takako Nagumo will also submit proposals of their own.

Peter, would you consider having the Chucks and the Rent Party putting in at least one join proposal for NEFFA next year? It was at our joint NEFFA event -- Hoot! -- in 2003 that my raggedy gang of musical reprobates first claimed that we were a band. We had so much fun in Woodchuckland that we'd love to pay another call. Let me know.

Thanks.

Greetings:

The July 15 deadline is mentioned in the e-mail that Barbara Ruth sent out on July 1 on behalf of the NOMAD program committee. She did, however, add the following: "The deadline will be extended for anyone whose application is delayed by computer problems." I presume that means anyone who is unable to open, download, or electronically send back the on-line application, and who therefore needs to send a paper copy by postal mail.

For more information, you can e-mail Barbara at performers@nomadfest.org or write to her at:

Hmmmmm.... I didn't get any email this year. Maybe they're trying to tell me something. (Thanks, Steve & Jerry for spilling the beans).

Jerry, I'll fill out a paper form (I downloaded the pdf and pasted it into a WORD document, which could have been done online in the first place for electronically filing) and include the workshop with the Gospel Messengers and ShoreGrass. Also planning to do a program with just me and Frank accompanying Karen K. And then there's our own program I hope to do with ShoreGrass: Songs of the Civil War Era, which we did a couple of years ago.

I just downloaded the application forms.

They appear to have hired a geek to design them, and he/she appears to have decided to show off by making them more complex than IRS forms, with a lot of wierd number codes they want you to figure out and fill in.

Maybe they're trying to cut down on the number of applications so they won't have to make so many decisions.

Well, I'm a lawyer and Kris is a public school teacher. We thrive on long, incomprehensible forms that have to be filled out whether or not the facts fit any of the number codes that are provided...We'll show 'em!

Anyone heard yet from NOMAD? I haven't received any acceptances or rejections, nor has anyone else I've spoken with. I have, however, seen the text of an ad that NOMAD is placing in the October issue of the New York Pinewoods Folk Music Club newsletter, and several performers are mentioned as apperaing, mostly NY Pinewoods members.

By the bye.. I offered to do a Guitar For Accompaniment workshop and because I don't know who the other performers are who are coming, I'm getting a little edgy that I are it. If I do a guitar as accompaniment workshop alone it will be more of a Play Guitar Like Jerry Rasmussen Does, sounds rather limiting. If there are any Catters who are coming to NOMAD who play guitar for accompaniment and can be comfortable breaking patterns and rhythms down for public consumption rather than doing jaw-dropping leads and complicated arrangements, please PM so that if I need to add a performer or two, I'll know who is agreeable...

I'm looking for demonstrations of picking patterns and styles for a solo performer.. not for playing guitar in a band or with other instruments.

And no, I haven't heard anything yet. I'll be out of the country later this month and in early October, so if you PM me during that time, understand that I may not get back to you right away.

I just received notification of my schedule, with no indication whether anyone else is in my two workshops. I suppose that, worse comes to worse, I could always check the website and seee if they posted the complete grid yet...

The festival is going to be Ballad rich this year!
John Roberts and I had so much fun swapping ballads at NEFFA
that we're doing it again at NOMAD (Sat. 5pm) and there's
a grand Ballad Blast Saturday night from 9-11. What a great
way to end the evening. On Sunday afternoon (3pm) I'll
be doing a session of American Songs: North and South -
and (if all goes well) releasing my first CD. Yippee!

Oh, and if that's not enough you can always dance!

The Guitar Accompaniment workshop is shaping up in a way far beyond my hopes. There are so many styles of guitar accompaniment that I was hoping I'd get people who could show the whole spectrum. And as it looks, I believe that we will cover a lot of ground. If all goes as planned, we'll have flat-picking for bluegrass based songs, finger picking in many styles from basic three-fingered Travis picking to blues and black gospel. Perhaps we could end with a bluegrass/rennaisance fair/black gospel medley?

I'm still waiting for confirmation on the other people in the workshop, so I won't be too specific, but I am excited about the possibilities..

ShoreGrass will do the "Gospel in Black & White" with the Gospel Messengers at 5:00 (don't know which room), followed by our own program of "Songs of the Civil War Era" at 6:00 in the Chorus Room. Hopefully the two locations are close!

Greetings:

MacDougal Street Rent Party will be doing Woody Rediscovered at NOMAD, a workshop presenting lesser known songs by Woody Guthrie. Some will be songs that Woody recorded and/or published in his own lifetime, but which are not well known today. Those may include:

Why Do You Stand There in the Rain?
Death Row
Boomtown Bill
Sally Don't You Grieve
Peace Call (Bugle Call for Peace)
One Little Thing the Atom Can't Do
Blow, Big Wind, Blow
Tin Horn Taxi
The Einstein Theme Song
I Don't Like the Way This World Is Treating Me


Others are lyrics that were discovered in the Woody Guthrie Archives long after his death and were set to music by other people. Those may include:

Ticky-Tock
California Stars
Way Over Yonder in a Minor Key
Jaxonville Waltz

Woody Rediscovered
will take place in the Music Room from 8:00 to 8:55 PM on Saturday, November 5.

From 10:00 to 10:55 PM on that same night and in the same room, I will be presenting Songs of Road and Rail, featuring songs of hoboes, tramps, boomers, truckers, and other people whose employment, or lack thereof, takes them from place to place -- and I don't mean by using their frequent flyer miles! Anne Price and Joel Landy will likely contribute a few songs.

Peter once told me that if you ever had to miss a gig I could sit in and pick country style guitar -- and no one would notice. He even gave me a name: Faux Chuck. Do get better. As flattering as the offer may be, things just ain't the same without three real Chucks!

This is from a recent group email from Bruce Randall, Mister West Gallery himself:
"West Gallery music is suitable for all voices and most melodic instruments. Come sing and play the music from rural English churches from the time of Thomas Hardy, Jane Austen, and King George III! Booklets of music will be provided"

It's really cool! Almost as cool as Ancient Irish Music (click)

West Gallery singing is wonderful English church music with bunches of(often brass & free reed) instruments, great harmonies and a robust singing style that is somewhat reminiscent, energy-wise, of Sacred Harp singing in this country (although the harmonies lean toward foursquare thirds, fourths, and fifths rather than the fuguing modal stuff of Sacred Harp). I love it, and Bruce is a terrific leader. Jerry, you and Ruth would like this session, I predict. Looking forward to seeing everyone.
