lisa null Lisa Null:Autobiographical article on folk revival (20) RE: Lisa Null:Autobiographical article on folk revival 05 Jun 14


Thanks Janie and Phil. The role of music didn't change a whole lot when I stopped touring vigorously as a singer. I just turned local-- getting ready to share a song or two at one of our local sings, prearing workshops for the Getaway, playing piano with a shortlived trio, singing with thee friends for East-West highway. The article didn't talk musch about the tours I booked for green Linnet artists or the festivals I ran at Wesleyan UNiversity and the university of maine. That organizational support of the larger folk community also went local-- programming the Washington Folk Festival or the FSGW concert series, running a traditional song room for years at the Minifest. Maybe I once had aspirations and saw myself in an international context but now it is local. The joy of it all is that at last, I can make a living however small and meagre, in music-- I teach voice, mostly to people interested in traditional song of one sort or another, I feel very happy to be able to pass somethig on. Sorry if my writing is hard to read here-- I am post cataract surgery and pre- eye glasses. I am typing by touch and feel.
