Tom Brosseau (& Andru Bemis) played a lovely show for us this past Tuesday night at Foundry Hall. They played a number of folk spirituals, together and separately, and also original songs. This song, Cradle Your Device, is off Tom’s new CD – Grass Punks. Pretty song, especially since Tom has such a beautiful voice. If you get a chance, listen to this song from the CD too. It has another instrument in it, a high end sound, that is not in the live performance. Listen to it here >>>
Here is a long story of who Liberty Hyde Bailey was plus a song about the man by Pam Chappell. Also playing on this song is Andru Bemis and Jim Hughey. I added some images to the story to help Pam along.
This song, Cane Fishin’ Pole, is part of the 6th annual, South Haven in Stories and Song HASH presentation. It was recorded live at Foundry Hall in front of a huge audience. Hundreds of people came out to enjoy Pam Chappell, Andru Bemis, and Jim Hughey, with stories by Roger Horton. It was a great night.
Lipbone Redding – WOW – played an incredible show at Foundry Hall last night. Really engaging performer, and I use that term performer completely. He tells stories that set the scene for each song, and the songs from this singer/songwriter are so real it is obvious that he’s lived them, felt the content of them himself, in his soul. He’s most noted for his ability to imitate accurately brass instruments, and he does that with amazing style, but what I loved was the content of the songs. He took us to Chili in this song about the dogs of Santiago. I felt as if I went there with him, seeing the place from his mind’s eye, feeling it through his music.
This is a story about Paul Hogan, told by Joe Foster at Open Mic.
Paul Hogan plays ‘Imagine That’ at Foundry Hall’s monthly (4th Wednesdays) Open Mic, which Paul hosts each month and also brings some amazing treats for everybody made by his great wife, Mary Hogan. This particular night we had her always tasty chocolate chip cookies and also pound cake and strawberries on a stick slathered in chocolate… really good. So come to open mic and share your talents – music, poetry, storytelling, juggling… – in front of a friendly audience that loves to applaud. It’s a really warm, friendly environment for everyone involved, including the audience.
Deborrah Wyndham is a wonderful performer and proved that again at Foundry Hall, her fourth time there, Friday night. Lovely performance, this is an original song – The Atmosphere.
Victor & Penny really make a great fake Vine*. Don’t you think?
I did not auto-play this Vine [normal for a Vine to auto-play], but it loops so you will have to hit pause to stop it.***
What’s a fake vine? –
*A Vine, just purchased by Twitter, is a 6 second video slice of life that loops (repeats and repeats). Kinda raw, just for the sake of it. To do a real Vine you have to have an iphone and an app for that. I have neither, but I can make a little repeating 6 second video, which is mostly what a Vine is, but they have a website and app and stuff so this is not an “official” Vine.
***Roll over the video and hit the pause [ | | ] button to turn it off when you’ve had enough.
Izzy and the Catastrophics put on a crazy-wild show for us at Foundry Hall. Wow, those guys rock and roll and a whole lot more. A bunch of really nice and fun people. Purchase their CDs here >>>
Link to it, embed it, tell your friends. I used a piece of Andru’s tune Kibbie to advertise this site. Take a look at the video, it’s really short.
