The 4th Annual Princeton Traditional Music Festival takes place this year 19-21 August 2011, at Princeton, BC Canada, some 300 km E of Vancouver. The Festival is free and is entirely staffed by volunteers (unless we can get a govt-paid student to help with the paperwork).

Princeton is a small ex-mining town in the interior plateau in the rain shadow of the Coast Range and so summers are dry and hot. It sits at the confluence of the Similkameen and Tulameen Rivers and there are plenty of bathing spots. There are also plenty of restaurants and motels in town, and camping possibilities just outside. There's a once-a-day bus from Vancouver and back, and our closest airport is Penticton, 80 minutes away.

Friday's festivities start with a street dance and a live band, and this is followed by two days of concerts, panels, workshops and jams. We feature about a hundred traditional musicians from a variety of cultures. Click here for the application form for performers and for other links, past programs and photos.

Do you have or are you interested in having a blue book policy? Sometimes they are fine but sometimes people prefer to go away to another area and sing without them? Always they are fine and anyone who prefers other ways of singing is intolerant and selfish? Not only fine but will be imposed on you in a highly agressive manner?

Any of the above are fine with me..do as you will.. but will determine my willingness to make a 300?? mile trip by bus, train, and oxen I believe to get to the final point. This is because I saw the lineup from last year and it is people I want to hear sing and sing with..four of five ormore of the best in the west and I do not want to bother if every other song is ftbb and things are as aggressive as they were the last time I was in a Vancouver camp. If it is time for us to admit defeat, great..let's do it. If it is time for us to be more honest, as we were at Rainycamp and really made someone upset...also great. I think varying styles and preferences can be accomodated..but not each and every time..every informal group the blue books will just come in and take over and start telling people to move their chairs back and turn to this page. It would be worth it to me to come if they were accomodated..and it si not my intention to exclude anyone from singing..but I think some of us others need to be accomodated now too..and it should not be that hard. Different rooms, times for this and times for that..an acknowledgement that some people might go to certain rooms to sing sans books and please respect their right to do so...etc. your call.   mg

I was at the last two festivals and at the party last year, and I never saw anybody using a songbook of any kind. There were various sing-songs and jam sessions going on in various areas of the house---and it was great!

I also enjoyed virtually all the concerts and workshops.

After a cold, wet, sometimes snowy winter
I'm looking forward to Princeton in August

OK..my three favorite singers on this side of the world are going to be there. Do you promise they will let me sing along with them? If we camp how far away is everything..like toilets for example? Will there be handsome men there? Oh of course..I see the lineup. Are there bugs? mg

and furthermore..if I can arrange to make it up there, and I would try for the chance to see all these people plus more together...then that means people at least from Vancouver B.C. should be able to make it to Sunnycamp in October..either the weekend of 8th or 22nd..which might be combined with some sort of maritime events similar to the shantycamp the parks department was putting on but is not able to now. mg

Jon, let's stop ignoring local performers, eh. There's a wealth of talent in our very small town of under 3000, who will be performing as part of the "Home Grown Traditions" song and tune circle.

They are: Nora Whelpton (fiddle,mandolin,banjo, 26 great grandchildren), Rick Freeman (blues vocal and guitar chops), Corry Oerlemans (all sorts of instruments plus Steven Foster), Barbara Bushewsky (ancient scripture put into poetry), Hugh Money (harmonicas), Stuart James (clawhammer banjo), Rick Law (bass player in every Princeton band), Andre Patry (DownEast, Scottish, Old Tyme fiddle).

And I'll throw in a song or two as well.

Just to clarify the miscellaneous links posted earlier, this is the festival web page , which leads to our new Princeton Traditional forum at http://princetontraditional.org

As the web master there, I'd like to encourage performers to use the forum to promote their gigs, themselves, CD sales, web pages, and even buy and sell relevant items. Pictures are welcome. There is also information posted about motels and such. Of course the list of festival performers and their biographies is there as well. Feel free to post a message even if you're not a performer. Everyone is welcome. See you there!

One person who is coming is from Richmond, Virginia--a very versatile fellow named Bob Webb. I found this charming duet where he's playing cello.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OobN-cJUPU

Robinia and I are looking for rides from Seattle, and can share a motel room with one or maybe even two (non excessively drinking) women...we travel light and don't have a lot of guitars etc. In fact none at all. mg

We are still looking for rides from Seattle and back..although it is possible we will have a car and could take one rider, but would prefer that someone else drive and we pay for gas. Could also share our motel room with quiet, sober female. mg

For my set (and maybe even the "Homegrown Traditions" workshop, I'm reviving the old song "When the War Breaks Out in Mexico"--on version originally written in 1914---inspired by the civil war in Mexico in 1914-1915 when U.S. got involved and took sides.

My friend Chick Roberts, who I learned it from, introduced it as being about "Canada's First Draft Dodger".

I know it was also recorded in 1948 by Pete Daily's Chicagoans (1st verse only), and Chick's version (which he said he used to do in a group with Amos Garrett) was probably a variation of one that was done in 1962 by Dave Guard's Whiskey Hill Singers.

There's a thread where I put in the lyrics to the original 1914 version. (It's under "When the War Breaks Out in Mexico".

But I'm interested if anybody knows other versions.   And whether the "I'll miss the Greycup" tagline was in any of those versions---or whether it's a "Chick Roberts" original.
