Hi Folks,
We've just updated the website for the Berkeley Old Time Music Convention, the 2009 festival will be 5 days long this time -- Wed. Sept. 9 through Sun. Sept. 13. Great lineup including Mike Seeger, Benton Flippen, Elizabeth LaPrelle, the Mostly Mountain Boys (Paul Brown, Terri McMurray, John Schwab) and others too numerous to mention. This festival takes place in venues all over Berkeley and includes concerts, dances, instructional workshops, panel discussions, jamming, the string band contest, an open mic cabaret, special activities for kids and families. We'll also have the Bay Area premiere of "Always Been A Rambler", a full-length documentary about the New Lost City Ramblers!

Please visit the BOTMC website for more info:

Hope to see some of you Mudcatters there!
Suzy Thompson

Glad to see that Elizabeth LaPrelle is getting movement aside from just in the south. She was just in upstate NY at Old Songs where I heard she was very well recieved. Now the West Coast can have a taste of her. They deserve a bit of the best out there way,,,,but not before the Northeast.

"Gimme that Old Time Convention
Gimme that Old Time Convention
Gimme that Old Time Convention
It's good enough for me"

"There'll be concerts. There'll be workshops
There'll be ceilidhs, there will be hops
Even if it's not quite the tops
Still, it's good enough for me!"


FEEL FREE TO ADD!

"To protect our cars from clamping
We parked back up at the camping,
Tho' it means a few miles tramping,
It's close enough for me"

"Gimme that Old Time Convention
Gimme that Old Time Convention
Gimme that Old Time Convention
It's good enough for me"


(reworkable for other folk fests!)

The inclusion on the website of images of all those historical artifacts and descriptive prose from Way Back Then saves me the trouble of a)finding and b)scanning my prized but now brownish poster from the First 35th Annual Berkeley Free Fiddlers Convention in 1968. All the invention of Prospective Geezers, now full fledged and accomplished geezers, and a fine training ground it was. Jose lives!
