Subject: Stone Soup, RI Fundraiser 4/22/12

This comes from an email from one of Stone Soup's mainstays.

It may not be an exaggeration to suggest that the weekend of Saturday, April 21 and Sunday, April 22 may be the biggest weekend in Stone Soup's 31-year history. Many already know that Gordon Bok [who had to cancel on March 10 because of the flu] is playing Saturday, April 21, and already a lot of people have bought advance tickets.
   Then on April 22, Sunday afternoon and evening will be perhaps the biggest show in the Soup's history, a musical marathon that runs from 4 in the afternoon until 10 in the evening, six hours of non-stop music beginning and ending with jam sessions and featuring many of the area's top folk/acoustic musicians.
   A fundraiser for the Soup [only ten bucks at the door of the PVD Social Club, 71 Richmond St. in downtown Providence, RI], it will be an over-flowing cornucopia of folk/acoustic music, fun not only for the audience but for musicians who seldom have a chance like this to hangout, even play together.
   Featured of course will be Stone Soup Founders twice Grammy Award winner Bill Harley and Joyce Katzberg and Kate Katzberg and Lindsay Adler. Also Atwater-Donnelly [Aubrey and Elwood met at Stone Soup], that wild, rollicking group The Gnomes and, in a wonderful gesture of solidarity, the legendary Pendragon will come from its own great venue, The Blackstone River Theatre, to show their support for their longtime friends at Stone Soup, a generous gesture for which Stone Soupers are profoundly grateful.
   But that's not all. There'll be a Fuzek-Rossoni reunion and performances by other Soup board members such as Paul Pasch and Bill Monroe. This spectacular show will begin and end with lively and spontaneous jam sessions at 4 o'clock and at 9. As veteran patrons of all-star shows know, they often start slowly as the audience gathers but this marathon will begin with a sprint with Jacob's Jammers. Jacob Haller, one of the foremost of the
younger crop of acoustic musicians, is recruiting a bunch of top local musicans to begin the jam at 4, joined by other other musicians, professional or amateur who care to sit in. And the show will end with another jam with many of the musicians who've played during the afternoon and evening already committed to join with their friends they so seldom get to play with. There's been nothing like it in the local folk/acoustic world for
a very long time, if ever.
   This was all made possible by the generosity of Jim Vickers who made his new PVD Social Club available for this unique concert. Since it is a club, it may be a bit less sedate than Stone Soup's usual venue, St. Paul's Church in Pawtucket. And Jim has told us he'll be providing appetizers to nibble on during this extraordinary fundraiser
   The schedule of performances is posted on the Stone Soup website and, as noted, there'll be non-stop music from 4 in the afternoon till 10 in the evening. If ever there were a "Be There or Be Square" event, this is it. Please help us spread the word, for this a celebration that Stone Soup has weathered the financial storm thanks to those who donated during our recent fund drive, to a most welcome grant from the City of Pawtucket and from what we know we'll collection this extraordinary Sunday afternoon/evening musical marathon.
   So we'll be back for season #32 [an eternity in the folk world] with the enormously-popular Lori McKenna on September 29. And we're closing this season with a flurry: Gordon Bok on Saturday April 21st, Geoff Muldaur [stranded on Martha's Vineyard
in that freak October storm] on Saturday, April 28 and ending with Ellis Paul on Saturday, May 12.
   There may never again be a Stone Soup concert like this one!

Here's a video of one of Stone Soup's Founding Mothers, Joyce Katzberg, who will perform at the Stone Soup fundraiser. This video was made at a fundraiser for the House of Compassion in Cumberland, RI. It is currently a shelter for homeless people and those with HIV/AIDS. The house itself was once a stop on the Underground Railroad. If you hear someone singing along off-key, it is probably me!

Er, let me try that again! THERE'S the video of Atwater-Donnelly.

And here, I hope, is one of Bill Harley. Bill is a two-time winner of the Grammy in the Spoken Word category and is best known for his stories and songs for children and families, so it was hard to find a video with a song for grown-ups (which is also a song for families).

Lindsay Adler is the vocalist in the center of this group.
She is also the instrumentalist in this video which shows her surrounded by some other instruments she plays.
