Subject: RE: Apple Hollow Music Fest Quebec Canada '09
Well it is time to bring this thread back up for a little while. this was started last Aug.28 and Gnu was the last to record a message on April 14th. a little over a month ago. Hope you have been checking in on the web site. Not to much to report on except that the Bus thing doesn't look good but on the other hand the "Montreal Folk Reunion" session (90 minutes) maybe be professionally recorder both on audio and video. If this works out folks we will have a gem. For those of you who are viewing this thread for the first time the M.F.Reunion features: Penny Lang(Canada's First lady of Folk.) Bruce Murdoch. Willie Dunn, Ron Bankley,Jessie Winchester and Host Mike Regenstreif.

A note from the web site:
The Montreal Folk Reunion brings together six people who played leading roles in the vital folk music scene that Montreal enjoyed in the 1960s and '70s. They'll reminisce about the old days at clubs like the New Penelope, the Café André, the Back Door, the Yellow Door, the Karma Coffee House, the Golem Coffee House and the Montreal Folk Workshop, and show us why they remain important forces in the folk scene so many decades later.

Singer-songwriters Jesse Winchester, Bruce Murdoch, Penny Lang, Willie Dunn and Ron Bankley all started their careers on that Montreal folk scene. Host Mike Regenstreif started hanging out on the folk scene as a high school student in 1969. Soon he was one of its major organizers.
