Subject: A Fox Hollow question
From: Deckman
Date: 29 May 11 - 09:16 AM

I'm in possesion of a live R/R recording made at a Fox Hollow Festival. I have very little information about this recording. I'm trying to archive it.

Questions: does anyone know if any vinal recordings were ever made of the Fox Hollow festivals"

Here is the play list of the first few songs: Instrumental, likely Bob's psaltry; Fiddler speaks, then the Beers family sings "Suns gonna' Shine In My Backyard Some Day; Theo Bikel singing a Russian song; Evelyne Beers sings Amazing Grace; Guy Carawan sings "Thats All Right. ... does anyone recognize when and how this recording made?

I've read all the previous postings about Fox Hollow and I find nothing would help me. Any guidance is appreciated. bob(deckman)nelson

The festival put out a couple of records. In 2004 WSHU in Connecticut played the one you're looking for as part of a show titled The Old Songs-Fox Hollow Connection. I had one of those records, but my first wife kept my records as well as the stereo, the house and the kid. I think she threw it out.The record, I mean.

Attn: Susan of DT Just reading your list brought back a lot of great memories. However, Garnet Rogers never played Fox Hollow. Nor did Stan or Richard. Grant, Gamble, and Sally did. Also, Barbara Carns didn't have an i in her last name, Respectfully, Elmore.

a clarification to the FOX HOLLOW discography:

The festival self produced FIVE albums:
1967 Vol.I pitter poon, the rain come doon
      Vol.II Clitter, Clatter, Down Come the Water
1968 Vol.III All Those People
1969 Vol.IV And Not One Police
no albums for 1970-1971
1972 Vol.VII Vol.7

IN ADDITION, Biograph Records issued 2 10th Anniversary albums,
each in two versions (thus actually 4 albums).
The initial release of the 2 albums was withdrawn due to license problems. The albums were re-edited with the offending tracks
removed and other tracks added.
Biograph BLP 12051 Fox Hollow 10th Anniversary Vol.1 A PLACE TO BE
Biograph BLP 12052 Fox Hollow 10th Anniversary Vol.2 YOU GOT MAGIC

Best wishes, Thomas.

Hi "Open Mike" ... I'm finally reponding to your questions:

"Fox Hollow" was a festival produced by the Beers family. Not being a happy traveler, I never attended, but I well knew of it's reputation as presenting the best of the best. I know nothing about the "Hollow Fox" you mentioned.

Regarding my archiving project: I took a six month vacation for the archiving while I was concentrating my efforts with the "Pacific Northwest Folklore Society." I am now diminshing my work with the society and getting back to my archiving. The thing about my tape recordings is that if I don't archive them, no one else will ... or can. That's a constant concern to me.

BTW ... Judy and I are often in touch with miken. Shoot me a PM if you want an update. CHEERS, bob(deckman)nelson

The Festival continued to get album play subsequent to the death of its founder, Bob "Fiddler" Beers. Biograph Records of Canaan, NY put out an LP in 1975, edited by Bob's earlier wife Evelyne Burnstine: "You Got Magic": Fox Hollow 10th Anniversary, Biograph BLP-12052.

The LP was a culling of favorites from the festival's 10-year history. Track listing (full disclosure: I'm on it, that's why I have a copy):

The Other Side of Freedom - Bodie Wagner
Here Rattler - Sparky Rucker
Charlie's Neat and Charlie's Sweet - Jean Ritchie
My Old Lady - Sweet Potato Pie (Doug & Lana Allen)
Worried Blues - Johnny Shines
Rocky Island - Bob Coltman
Baby Rocked Her Dolly - Jim Ringer
Children's Liberation Song - Bruce "Utah" Phillips
Ruby John Herald, Alan Stowell, Jay Unger, Saul Brody

Standing Behind Some Man - Jane Voss
Magic Mojo - Bodie Wagner
Three Jolly Ladys - Tony Barrand, John Roberts, Cliff Haslam
Gold Rush - Kenny Hall & Sweets Mill String Band
Lord Bateman - Frankie Armstrong
Lord Edgecomb - Holly Tannen, Alistair Anderson
Scotland the Brave - Caliope's Childrfen Steel Band & The Invermark Pipers

Hollow Fox, a mudcatter, went to Fox Hollow and chose her handle to honor it. The hollow fox was also a silhouette used on fox hollow advertising.

Tim - I will think about parting with them.

Thanks for the reply. Copies of the recordings would suffice, if I wasn't clear on that. Got a CD burner or even a tape deck? Thanks.

Come to think of it, it may have been the Gotta get gone festival in 1973, maybe? Jean Redpath was there.
