We are about to begin our 3rd season of the Flagpole Radio Café in Newtown, CT. Our closing show in May with Peter Yarrow was a sold out performance and a great night of entertainment.

Lots of pics from the Peter Yarrow show and past performances here: http://flagpoleradiocafe.blogspot.com/

Our guest artist on September 25th will be the legendary folk singer Ramblin Jack Elliot. We are expecting another sold out performance so get your tickets soon! For tickets go here: http://www.flagpoleproductions.org/

Read more about this upcoming show and more on our blog: http://flagpoleproductions.org/FRC_Blog/

The Flagpole Radio Café is a variety show much like Prairie Home Companion with our own mix of outrageous comedy skits and extraordinary music. In addition to the musical guest artist, each show the house band plays a mix of bluegrass, jazz, blues, folk, and sometimes something really unexpected. We perform the show in the style of the old radio format in front of a live theater audience with a broadcast on WPKN. The show takes place in Edmond Town Hall in Newtown, Connecticut. This charming 1920's theater seats 535 people and is the perfect setting for this homegrown Americana variety show.

Our November 6th guest will be Tom Chapin. February 5th will be Peter Yarrow's daughter Bethany with special guests (hmm?) and March 19th will be Christine Lavin. December 4th and May 21st will be announced shortly.

Hope to see you there!!
Rick

I'm going to see him in Cleveland this Saturday. If this thread is still active I'll tell you all how it was.

Wow, thanks to whoever edited the title. Open Mike was right that I should have been more specific.

Definitely go see him if you get the chance. I saw him in Cleveland last night and it was great. At 79 Jack still had the stamina to deliver 2 solid hours of exceptional folk songs, solo, accompanying himself on his trusty old Martin guitar. Between songs he regaled us with stories about people he's known like Gene Autry and Woody and he even mention Mudcat frequenter Frank Hamilton as having taught him the song he was about to play. I won't say his voice didn't crack once or twice but as my friend Terry said, that just added authenticity, and authentic is the perfect adjective for the evening. Authentic American Folk being presented by an authentic folk music legend, eloquently.

Jack is the epitome of the type of folksinger I always strove to be.

It is bitter-sweet / "good-though" that one of us is still at it and making a few waves on our small folkie pond.
