  • berkeley folk festival - news report 1968.

    6:59

    i cant go into a full history here of the booming folk scene over in berkeley as it really needs a book or two!....based around the colby street musicians who busked and played local coffee shops plus clubs such as 'freight & salvage & the jabberwock'...it was a thriving folk music hub with the musicians making up bands that lasted one or two night's such as the diesel ducks/yreka bakery/fat city and a hundred more but the cleanliness & godliness skiffle band were always involved along the way...some were more stable like 'dr.humbeeds tranquility string band & styx river ferry'...musicians were everywhere like mac benford/sue draheim/larry hanks/bob potts/eric thompsom/jody stecher/will spiers/holly tannen etc...early folkies were based at stanford university plus san mateo and the tangent & the poppycock clubs in palo alto...the berkeley festival started in 1958 and ran to 1970 and along the way introduced rock bands to the audiences like the airplane/youngbloods and big brother...enjoy this fasinating look at parts of the festival from this new's report and just ogle at the size of those audiences!...

  • dr.humbeads new tranquility string band... - goodbye liza jane 69.

    3:14

    while all the psychedelic mayhem was taking place in san francisco over in berkeley a largely unknown underground scene was taking shape in the form of folk musicians playing what we now call old timey music or mountain music but with lots of old traditional music's thrown into the mix...based in an area affectionaly called 'the colby street' community a whole scene was developing around new coffee houses such as 'freight & salvage' plus the 'poppycock & new orleans house which tended to feature more rock groups'...out of this grew many bands together for one show or several and sharing often or not the same musicians....out of this scene sue draheim a trained classical violinist but upon meeting jim bamford in '67 who taught her old fiddle tunes was to become in her own words a 'fiddler'...having a house in this community meant fellow folkies would come and go at random but it was a meeting place for many centered around the 'cleanliness & godliness skiffle band' who members would float between several outfits...so it seems around '68 that 'dr.humbeads new tranquility string band and medicine show' formed a loose congregation of : sue draheim/will spire & mac benford'...playing folk standards/old timey/bluesy jazzy tunes on acoustic instruments...around this scene were 'the golden toad/fat city/the diesel ducks/yreka bakery/styx river ferry & the far-out floating lotus opera company' that we have up on the channel all ready (check 'em out!)...the band got its name from manager earl crabb (aka the great humbead..)...gigs seemed plentiful but no recording's were done in the studio but i've managed to track down some live material from a festival appearance in spring '69 at the san diego folk festival the group are joined by kenny hall and from the c.&g.s.band hank bradley......draheim was a superb musician who had a great ear for traditional material be it irish jigs/mountain string band or plain old skiffle she could play it...by 1970 the band shortened its name to 'the new tranquility string band' and draheim made her way over to the u.k.to play in the burgeoning folk scene....and here my story ends ...the colby street community was an amazing scene that really does need documenting fully but notice several c.d's have come on to the market in recent years plus the odd dvd so things are slowly coming to light ....

    From Wikipedia:

    Joe Cooley (1924–December 20, 1973) was an Irish musician known for his traditional accordion music.

    Biography
    Cooley was born in Peterswell, County Galway in 1924. Both his parents were melodeon players, and Joe began playing accordion at age 10. As a teen, Joe played in the Midlands area and eventually found himself in Dublin in 1945, where he joined the Galway Rovers Band. There in Dublin, he met musicians Sonny Brogan and Johnny Doan, both of whom were to influence Cooley's musical style.[1]

    He was one of the earliest members of the Tulla Céilí Band when, as the St Patrick's Amateur Band, Tulla, they won the ceili band competition at Féile Luimní in 1946. He played with the Tulla on their first broadcast for Radio Éireann in 1948. At the end of that year he left the band to work in London. He rejoined the band when he returned from England towards the end of 1950. He also often played with Galway fiddler Joe Leary.

    In 1954 Joe Cooley left for the US. Joe's brother, Seamus, who played banjo with the Tulla, went on a US trip and made a recording with them. He left the band in 1958 while on tour and stayed in the US. While in New York Joe was involved in the Joe Cooley Ceili Band and the Joe Cooley Instrumental Group. He moved from New York to Chicago and finally to San Francisco. While in San Francisco, Cooley formed the Gráinneog Céilidh band which included accordionist Kevin Keegan, fiddlers Sue Draheim and Will Spires, Eric Thompson, and others.[2][3] In America he married Nancy McMahon from Killenana, Co Clare.

    He is regarded as one of the most accomplished and influential Irish button accordionists. On one occasion, in Miltown Malbay, Co. Clare, Joe was presented with a beautiful Paolo Soprani C#/D accordion he dubbed The Box which would accompany him on his tour of America in the 1970s.[1]

    Joe returned to Ireland in the spring of 1973 after becoming ill with cancer. He toured the pubs of Clare and Galway with his friend banjo player Des Mulkere until shortly before his death in December 1973. His only commercial recordings were not released in Ireland until 1975.[4]

    His accordion is now believed to be in the hands of the great Irish accordionist Tony MacMahon of Clare, IE. One of Cooley's enduring legacies is a reel named Joe Cooley's.[5] Originally named The Tulla Reel, the tune has since become associated with Cooley and is now a standard in the Irish traditional music repertoire. Cathie Whitesides and other American friends of Joe's have archived many of Joe's tunes on a website,

  • Faure String Quartet Op. 121

    25:20

    I. Allegro moderato
    II. [Andante] 6:40
    III. Allegro 16:30

    Gabriel Fauré, String Quartet Op. 121 (1924), Erickson Edition (2002), based on Faure's autograph score. Faure did not live to complete the edition of his quartet with execution markings beyond the first few pages of his score. Faure's amanuensis, organist Roger-Ducasse, prepared the Durand edition, adding slurs throughout that obscure the vitality implicit in the original score. In particular, the contrast of expression between the two motifs at the opening of the first movement, implied in the dynamics, can be sharpened by accentuating the forte motif.

    In the last movement, the rhythmic energy of articulated bowing suggests reference to the North African and Eurasian traditions in vogue in the early 1920s in France, of which Faure quite possible was aware. The drumming effect of the pizzicato in that movement parallels the conclusion of George Antheil's 2nd Violin Sonata (1924). Faure’s guiding inspirations throughout the Quatour include the choral masterworks of the Renaissance and the harmonic ambiguity of the Lydian (augmented) tetrachord, expressed early in his song “Lydia,” Op. 4. Our performance tried for the even spacing of the triplet figure of the main theme, but generally fell back on the usual duple rhythm that marrs all other renditions.

  • Never take Schumann Seriously: He didnt know how to play his own works

    12:51

    Robert Schumann's gave many metronome indications for his compositions. The reason why seems obvious... he cared for his works. He would be surprised though (and probably not too happy either) if he would see how today we ignore the majority if not all of his Metronome Marks. Even though on a serious level musicologists corrected the myth of his metronome to be broken (even Clara Schumann took that statement back in 1864 but it still lives its own life), we as musicians only get the advice to not follow Schumann's MM's. Why?
    In this video I'll focus on the famous Kinderscenen (Scenes from Childhood) opus 15, the MM's as published in the first edition, compare those with the tempo indications as given by Clara Schumann in 1887 and put those next to the tempo indications as given by Otto Boehme, personal friend of the Schumann's.
    I also share the advice Henle Verlag and Wiener Urtext give regarding these metronome numbers and -hopefully- help you out in understanding that Schumann's metronome marks are - how could this in fact be of any surprise...?- just perfect.

    See Alberto Sanna's recording of Schumann's Kinderszenen here:
