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..

Jerry

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 grids are out... I'll be doing a Guitar Accompaniment workshop at 4 p.m. on Saturday, immediately followed by The Gospel In Black And White workshop at 5 p.m. with Shoregrass. I hope, I hope, I hope, I hope...
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...

Looking forward to seeing everyone again..

Jerry

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.

Jerry

You can't get to Portland from anywhere west of Boston or eastern NH.

Well know fact.

I've heard that the committee is working on a preliminary grid but have not notified any performers yet.

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.

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!

Jerry and Charlie - thanks ever so for the info and link. Unfortunately, once again, attendance is beyond my reach. I have, however, saved the link, hoping it will still exist next year and maybe I will be able to join in the fun then.
Hope you have a wonderful time. . .
Cheers

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.

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:

Jerry, where did you hear that the deadline for applications is July 15? We usually get something in the mail, but didn't get anything this year.

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.

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
