Subject: Old Songs Festival---CAMSCO's Last Stand
From: dick greenhaus
Date: 29 May 13 - 05:46 PM

If you're one of the many folks who have enjoyed searching through CAMSCO Music's collection at the Old Songs Festival, this year will be your last chance. An upcoming move to more confined quarters, as well as the limitations of an increased (shall I say) maturity, has made the logistics of festival sales impracticable. Storing and jackassing around a few thousand CDs, a bunch of books, as well as the requisite tents, tables, lights, etc. has begun to get old (like me).
    So, if you have holes to fill in your CD collection, prepare lists of what you already have, and I wish you happy browsing.
Oh yes, bring money.

My first response was "Oh, no they can't!" but I understand. Still, no more CAMSCO is a little traumatic.

Leadfingers-
CAMSCO will continue and expand its book publishing program; WE'll continue handling mail order for CDs, but we'll be cutting back a bit on what we inventory. For the immediate future, we'll be playing it by ear.

Kendall, we NEED time, in order to keep everything from happening at once.

What I think you are actually saying you hate is the Inevitable Deterioration of the Meat. Thus modified, I concur. I think, given the number of '50s - '60s folkies on this forum, the sentiment approaches unanimity.

Just hearing about Old Songs makes me sad. Went to about 28 of 'em, but moved to North Georgia. There's a fair amount of folk music here, but nothing like Old Songs.

CAMSCO will have a booth at Old Songs this year. It will be our last year there as vendors.

We are moving to a retirement community in Lansdale PA. If you are among the 350 folkies I have in my address book, you will get details later, or PM one of us.

The CAMSCO 800 number and email should remain the same. Mine and the numbers behind the CAMSCO numbers will be changed. We cannot get our new phone and email until after Old Songs - I had hoped to have new cards printed, but we won't have the info.

Guest - If you are WYSIWYG, we will be about an hour closer to you, which will make visits easier.

Just assume I tossed in some joke about getting older, moving and "movements." Then let me wish you both all the best in the future. You are an invaluable resource and we owe you a lot. You won't get much more than that because as you know, most folkies are pretty much broke.........

All my Best,

Dick -

Your 'transitional note' got me to place a CAMSCO order today.
Learned a lot from you at the festivals (like FSGW Get Aways).
Always remember your story about Bascomb Lunsford and your performance
down in NC (back in the day).

Cheers

Taking off to Old Songs is just a couple of days! Great line-up, this year, as usual! Hope to see many friends! I will be at music sessions & at the Folk Legacy booth, between times, where Duane D will be holding down the fort with Caroline Paton.

The CDs are in the car. The big stuff was loaded into Eric and Hilary's van. Just a little more to load. We hope to come back with a lot fewer CDs. Remember - THIS IS THE LAST CHANCE TO BUY FROM CAMSCO AT OLD SONGS.

I'm sitting here in Cleveland wishing I were at Old Songs counting out my savings into Dick & Susan's hands for music. Empty piggy bank kept me at home again this year.

Of the people/things/events with long and glorious traditions, I think most traditional music enthusiasts are well aware of what an incredible job CAMSCO has done in giving us access to wonderful songs and singers, and are thoroughly greatful.

I can still remember several decades back, my first experience of CAMSCO at a folk festival. I was overwhelmed by the choices and asked Dick Swain to pick me out something he thought I'd like. I've still got those cassettes, and gingerly put them through my aging sound system now and then - first sound of David Weber and Anni Fentiman (hope I spelled them right) among them.

Sorry to miss the last "stand" but ever greatful for your work,

Joanne in Cleveland

sigh, this weather & Mike coming down with a cold has altered our plans once again.

I had hoped to meet up with Allan C ...   but maybe another year.

Can anyone going to OS leave a message and apology for missing him with Dick or Sue for Allan. We had thought to meet up at the musical candy store.

I'm packed, mostly. It always feels like I'm going for a week instead of 2.5 days. Chairs and raincoat are still in the care from last year. Maybe put some big garbage bags in. "Fashion by ForceFlex...)

Sciencegeek, if I see Allan C, I'll let him know, in case a hoard of Mudcatters haven't already told him.

Must remember money... and checkbook.
Garbage bags, duct tape, "no officer, it's not to put bodies in..."
See y'all later.

We no longer have our "camper" van, and are past the age for sleeping on the ground, wondering if a puddle will choose to form where we put our tent. And motels plus the associated driving back and forth aren't worth it.

So we had figured on coming down early Saturday and driving home late. A long day, but we could do it with two drivers.

Then we looked at the weather forecast, as well as the immediate past weather, and the prospects for Mud and Mosquitoes. And decided to stay dry at home.

Maybe next year...?

and I know exactly where Midchuck is coming from... the joints have been groaning since last night... the jam session at the spaghetti supper was fun, but I could hardly hear myself or the pickers thanks to clogged ears. Ibuprophen... don't leave home without it... LOL

We'll have to take solace in the open mike at the local coffee shop down in Dansville.
