My son John Null, an alumnus of St. Andrews Presbyterian College in Laurinburg, NC, has launched a new folk festival there in conjunction with their Alumni Weekend. It will feature Debby McClatchy, who is flying in from California for this, and Big Medicine-- wonderful old time string band from Raleigh with Joe Newberry, Bobb Head, Kenny Jackson, and LaNelle Davis.

Of course I will be taking part too-- my son says I am the honored guest--hmmm, I must be getting to be one of those old timers they haul out on stage to talk about the old days. No way, not me! But I will sing my heart out. The festival will open with members of the Laurinburg Scottish Pipe Band.

I am very excited that John is carrying this interest in trad music to the next generation. He is starting small: 1:00-4:00 in the afternoon, outside on the Patio of the Belk Center on campus. You can find it by following the signs. The local motels are full because of the weekend, but Laurinburg is near a lot of other wonderful places in the NC Sandhills.

Here's a link with more info:

Janie-- I am so glad you will. Can you get the word out to a few others? I wanted to invite Ed and Mitzi but lost their emails. Do you have them? It will be wonderfu to see you again.

I have Mitzi's and can probably get Ed's from the Carolina Friends School directory. I spoke with Dani about it after I got home from WV, and think it likely she and I will drive down together.

Wonderful performances by Lisa, Carly, Debbie McClatchy and Big Medicine! Intimate setting, lots of singing along and a small but wonderfully appreciative audience. I'll have snatches of song running through my head from this one for weeks!

Lisa, I've always loved your singing at the Getaway, but to watch you perform a full set, and really get to see how you engage the audience was an absolute delight.

I had never seen Debbie McClatchy, and mostly know of her work through post to Mudcat. I expected to enjoy her set, and was not disappointed. Wonderfully energetic. (And I luvs the banjo!) Joe Newbury and Big Medicine are always a treat. One song they did I have never heard, and now I can't get it out of my head. "Sit Down. I Can't Sit Down. I Just Got to Heaven and I want to (Have to?) Walk Around."

Apparently that song is actually titled "Sit Down Servant."

Well, no. Maybe related, maybe a variant, but not the same song.

Want also to say what a pleasure it was to meet Lisa's son John, and to say thank you to him for organizing this event.
