Subject: Princeton Traditional Music Festival
From: Jon Bartlett
Date: 05 Apr 12 - 12:01 AM

Date: August 17-19
Title: 5th Annual Princeton Traditional Music Festival
Location: Princeton, BC Canada. Princeton is about 300 km (200 miles) E of Vancouver (about a three-hour drive through spectacular landscape).

A free festival, and entirely volunteer-run, open to all performers of traditional music. Two outdoor stages. The festival starts Friday night with a free public dance in the town square. Presentations, workshops, concerts, panels, from 10am to 6 pm Saturday and Sunday. About 100 performers. Glorious countryside (semi-desert, mountains), an ideal vacation spot, too.

Cheers!

My wife and I are looking forward to Princeton again this August. This will be our third year there. It's a great community event - the whole town supports it, very friendly, great music, lovely locale - sort of what I guess NW Folklife used to be when if first began.

Thanks Jon for what you've done to make it a great festival.

Cheers, S. in Seattle

Banjo player/mandolinist/etc. Robin Cottle will be playing with me at this year's festival.

And the Princeton Traditional Music Festival is the only place you'll ever hear us play, as we live a few hundred km's apart....and get together for the festival.

We play mostly old-timey American, but who knows what else we might throw in.

Larry and Robin are just two of the performers lined up for this year's Festival. Here is an (almost) complete list:
Mary Armitage, Alex Atamanenko and Lawrence Halisheff, Jon Bartlett and Rika Ruebsaat, Choir Slovenia, Claddach, Karel Crepnjak, Dark Willow, Diggers, Doc And Nak, Erratica, Fraser Union, John Gothard, Rosaleen Gregory, Betty Hendrickson, Stewart Hendrickson, Hokum Steamers, Dick and Carol Holdstock, In The Family Way, Jasmine Fiona, King's Shilling, Lemon Gin, Little Mountain Step & Clog, Ben Meti, Morgan & Graves, Orkestar Slivovica, Out Of The Green, Pasties 'N' Porridge, Psycho Acoustic Ceili Band, Tom Rawson, Chris Roe, Larry Saidman & Robin Cottle, Sarah Jane Scouten, Penny Sidor, Skweez, Slovenian Folklore Dancers, Soft Focus, Solidarity Notes Labour Choir, Something About Reptiles, Stab The Cat, Phillip Tidd, Vazzy, Randy Vic and Becky Deryckx, Without A Net, Zeellia.

Each year we celebrate one of the founding cultures of Princeton. Last year was the year of the Scots, and this year we've put together several presentations from eastern Europe, which contributed some 40% of Princeton's population in the 20's. They came mostly for the mining - gold at Hedley, copper at Copper Mountain, just south of town, and coal at Coalmont (obviously!), Blakeburn and Princeton itself, which still sees occasional sink holes appearing in streets and gardens, where underground workings have collapsed.

We'll have accordion music from Albania, a cabaret band from Turkey, a roma band, specializing in dance and wedding musics from across the Balkans, Slovenian singers, dancers and accordion music, and Russian songs (from our MP and also from a twenty-voice Doukhobor choir).

The festival is located right downtown, is FREE and runs 17-19 August 2012. I hope to see lots of 'Catters!

Jon Bartlett wrote a great article about one of the songs I'm going to do at our concert.....a song that has always been credited to Jimmie Rodgers, but.....in fact it looks like his version was a derivation of a traditional 'hobo song'.

I am stoked to be getting to Princeton after a 45 year out-of-town festival hiatus. Seattle's Folkife was across the street from my job for 3 decades, and only across the Sound from home, and sustained me for years, but it's gotten awfully stodgy and controlled over those years. I haven't been up to southcentral BC for nearly a decade despite a lot of time in VIctoria, so that will be a huge bonus as well.
I also am extremely grateful to Jon and Rika for starting and maintaining this FREE festival!

I noticed a group named "Something About Reptiles" who are billed to play at this year's Princeton Traditional Music Festival, so I looked them up.

They are described as: "an outrageous Turkish-Balkan cabaret band. They describe their music as "kitsch meets classic with traditional music, warped into something east of cabaret and west of gravity." With guitar, bass, viola, darbuka (hand drum), vocals and accordions"

I couldn't find anything by them on youtube, but here's something from myspace. I don't know how to put a link on mudcat...but you can put this in your browser.   Or if anybody knows how to make it into a link, that would be great....please do it!

One change in this year's festival from previous years....some Princeton restaurants and others have some enthusiasm about the Eastern European theme and there will be a few kiosks and booths selling some wonderful food. Pierogies, cabbage rolls, some Greek food...as well as the great Indian food that was sold last year, plus a couple vendors doing hamburgers/hotdogs.

I'm particularly looking forward to seeing what Barbara at Coco's Bistro puts together.

Yes, Al Barron will certainly be there.

I've just had some sad news from David Lowther of Without a Net - he's had a death in his family and can't make the Festival. A huge loss for us, but we send our very best regards to him and his family.

Replacing Without a Net will be Kitty Lie Over (Annie Brown on fiddle and Mike Dowler on clarinet and pennywhistle) who promise to rearrange our notions of traditional Irish tunes.

The schedule for the Festival is now up on our website - please visit us!

Thanks Jon,

For those trying to find the schedule, that, plus another post on this year's performers, is in a posting under "Festival Talk", rather than under "performers".

Which brings me to a question: I notice one group is called IN THE FAMILY WAY....and they describe their music as "traditional folk songs in three-part harmony"

But I can't find out anything about them online.

Who are they? What kind of traditional songs might I expect from them?

Just curious.

In the Family Way is the van Lidth de Jeude family from Bowen Island. Lyn comes from Appalachian stock and has always carried dozens of Appalachian songs in her head, now of course passed on to her children. You'll enjoy them, Larry.

I especially look forward to hearing the Doukhobor choir. Doukhobors settled in BC about a hundred years ago and their reclusive communal way of life ensured that their folk traditions were well preserved. One of the most moving musical experiences of my life was hearing hymns sung by the Doukhobor contingent during an anti-Iraq-war rally in Nelson BC and realising that these people were not just responding to current events but were living out an ethical commitment to "peaceful life" which their ancestors had made many generations before, on the other side of the world.

I look forward to meeting you, Bob .....and any other mudcatters who come to Princeton for the weekend.

@ Donna A. (and anybody else) you can post pictures in the Festival Talk forum. Start a new thread for yourself. It's best if you host them elsewhere - perhaps Photobucket or Flikr (or wherever you like to host pictures on the net) because then we save bandwidth and people can see them without logging in. If you have trouble with the BB code (as it's called), you can send pics to me at admin (at) princetontraditional.org and I'll do it for you. There's already some pictures here.
