Subject: Fahey Celebration in Takoma Park, 6/28
From: GUEST,Marc Minsker
Date: 16 May 13 - 09:26 PM

Well it's taken some time to come together, but the DC premiere of James Cullingham's excellent documentary IN SEARCH OF BLIND JOE DEATH will take place on
7pm on Friday, June 28, 2013 at the Takoma Park Community Center (7500 Maple Avenue, Takoma Park, 20912)

WE ARE TAKOMA and the HOUSE OF MUSICAL TRADITIONS PRESENTS:

A COMMUNITY CELEBRATION OF JOHN FAHEY

Takoma Park's most famous son, guitarist John Fahey, will be celebrated with a new documentary from Tamarack Films, with a music performance by one of Fahey's label mates Max Ochs, and with a Q & A consisting of film director James Cullingham, flautist and Fahey friend Nancy Mclean, session engineer and musicologist Joe Bussard, and Fahey's boyhood friend Rob Gardner. This promises to be a very special evening and will certainly fill the 150 seat auditorium at the Community Center (as did my amateur 30 minute documentary that was the debut event in the beautiful auditorium).

This screening of the film is open to the public with a suggested donation of $10. Advance passes available at House of Musical Traditions or Takoma Park Community Center (limit two passes per person). For holders of advance passes, the suggested donation of $10 will be collected at the door, on the day of show only.

Subject: Super rare Fahey records will be auctioned 6/28
From: GUEST

For Fahey collectors:

One of the participants in the John Fahey Community Celebration this coming Friday, June 28th at 7pm in Takoma Park will be auctioning the very first two Takoma records: an original pressing of the uber rare BLIND JOE DEATH on Takoma Records and DEATH CHANTS, Breakdowns & Military Waltzes on Takoma. The records will be auctioned after the screening of the film and will probably sell for at least $1000 each. One of the two has John's handwriting of a street address on the back.

As rare as it gets for Fahey collectors!

For FAHEY ENTHUSIASTS:

An extremely rare opportunity to own John's first records that he privately put out:

Plus a great event celebrating the genius, guitar, and grit of John Fahey...

For those who have neither deep pockets, nor the need to have
the original vinyl, both versions of the BLIND JOE DEATH
album were released on the CD "The Legend of Blind Joe Death"
readily available at your favourite purveyor of little silver discs.

An extensive discography of Fahey is available at the FAHEY FILES
website: The Fahey Files

Best wishes, Thomas.

Hey, I'm glad that folks are doing this but...

...Fahey was a real jerk...

But I dismiss that because I think he suffered from mental illness...

notice my previous post did not show my id - reset cookie.

Anyone know when the documentary will be available on DVD ???

There is a collection of 6-LPs issued by 4MENWITH BEARDS which
has gotten some bad reviews - some discs off-center, and
criticism of sound quality.
Anyone have the set? Were the oc discs replaced?
Is the version of BLIND JOE DEATH in that set the original,
the revision, or different from either version?

Thanks, Thomas.

Funny, all these years, I thought Fahey was from Tacoma. Washington.

Yeah, I knew his record label was called Takoma, spelled with a K, but I figured he had just arbitrarily decided to change the spelling.

Personal anecdote -

I followed Fahey's performances, writing (those liner notes!), producing (Takoma Records), fingerstyle playing and records from the mid-60s until the currentera ("Times Have Gone By"). First saw him
at the Ash Grove (with his bourbon-liter of Pepsi). Last saw him at
the Birchmere (Alexandria) in the late 80s.

So at the Birchmere show, I talked to him off-stage and said "how can
I get a guitar lesson with you"? Fahey replied - "I have an old girlfriend I'd like to meet up with - beautiful Linda Getchell. See if you can find her number in the Yellow Pages and I'll be glad to show you
a few things".   Needless to say, the joke was not wasted on me.

I'm still looking for the phone number of 'beautiful Linda Getchell'.

How and why gene rosenthal hasn't posted to this thread is beyond me.

Sounds like a fun event; if I were in the area, I would go. I wouldn't be spending thousands on those original albums though since I have both reissues that sound great.

Not sure it's "funny", Jim

John Fahey is intrinsically a part of the DC historic fabric and Tacoma, Washington is as white and bland as it gets...

No hard feelings
