Subject: RE: Where does Steve Suffet come from

In case you're still want to know where I come from, there is little more anyone can add. But if you are wondering where I am going, you are welcome to erase all uncertainties and put all doubts to rest. Just continue reading. Here are the gigs I have booked so far for the remainder of the year.

Saturday, March 10, 2007, 8:00 PM. Peoples' Voice Cafe at the Workmen's Circle. 45 East 33rd Street. New York City. Come celebrate the release of my newest CD, I've Been Up On the Mountain. The rest of MacDougal Street Rent Party will provide instrumental and vocal back-up. Sharing the evening will be anarcho-feminist folksinger-songwriter Holly GoAnarchy. Suggested admission: $12. Peoples' Voice Cafe or Workmen's Circle members: $9. More if you chose, less if you can't. TDF vouchers accepted. No one turned away for lack of money. For information, please call 212-787-3903.

Friday-Sunday, April 20-22, 2007. New England Folk Festival (NEFFA). Mansfield Middle and High School. Mansfield, MA. I will be presenting a workshop on Friday, beginning at 7:00 PM, called Folk City Interlude, featuring the songs I learned during New York's Greenwich Village folk scene in the 1960s. On Saturday at 9:00 PM, I'll be part of MacDougal Street Rent Party as we once again present Songs of Struggle, where you will have the chance to sing along, clap, holler, shout, and show everyone which side you are on. And finally, on Sunday morning at 10:00 AM, I will again be part of MacDougal Street Rent Party as we present Kids Sing Freedom, a fully participatory, family oriented workshop of songs of freedom, peace, and friendship for children and grown-ups alike. For additional information and a complete schedule, visit the NEFFA website.

Friday-Saturday, May 4-5, 2007. Jacob's Ladder Folk Festival. Nof Ginosar, Israel. I will be doing two 45-minute sets. One will be a tribute to Woody Guthrie and the other will be an eclectic assortment of North American folksongs. Additional information is available at the Jacob's Ladder website.

Sunday, July 8, 2007, 7:00 PM. Bowery Poetry Club. 308 Bowery. New York City. Come enjoy the Seventh Annual Woody Guthrie Birthday Bash at its new location. This round robin songfest will feature MacDougal Street Rent Party plus Jessica Feinbloom, Mimi LaValley, and special guests to be announced. $6 cover charge + one drink minimum. For information, please call 212-614-0505.

Saturday, September 1, 2007, 6:00 PM. Alternative Bookstore. 35 North Front Street. Kingston, NY. Anne Price and I will be sharing several sets until the store closes at night. Free admission. For information, please call 845-331-5439.

Saturday, October 13, 2007. Dissident Folk Festival. Howland Cultural Center. 477 Main Street. Beacon, NY. 1:00 PM to 11:00 PM. Anne Price and I will open the festival with a tribute to Woody Guthrie, and then we will appear again later as part MacDougal Street Rent Party. Full details are not yet available, but don't be surprised if one of Beacon's better known residents once again shows up to share a song or two!

Also I will likely be at the following, either as a performer or as an attendee, but it is much too early to confirm:

Friday-Sunday, June 1-3, 2007. Peoples' Music Network Summer Gathering. Epworth Center. High Falls, NY.

Friday-Sunday, November 2-4, 2007. NOMAD Festival. Wilbur Cross High School. New Haven, CT.

I hope to say "hello" lots of Mudcatters at these events.
