Subject: Camp New Harmony 2013-14, Camp Information
From: Joe Offer
Date: 29 Jul 13 - 08:56 PM

This is the signup page for 2013-14. Please go here (click) for 2015-16

Thanks.
-Joe Offer-

This is an edited thread for recording signups for workshops for the San Francico Folk Music Club's Camp New Harmony. The camp is held the week after Christmas every year at Camp Newman, on the road between Calistoga and Santa Rosa, California. The camp Website is http://sffmc.org/harmony_body.html.
Registration for camp opened September 15. Dates for camp are Friday, December 27, 2013, ending on Wednesday, January 1, 2014.

I'm going to use this as an edited thread to record pre-camp signups for workshops. We expect, as usual, that most people will sign up for workshops after they get to camp.

    So, the idea is this: if you're attending camp and you'd like to lead a workshop, scroll down and post a message at the end of this thread with the following information:
    • Your name
    • Name of the workshop
    • Preferred time and day
    • Preferred location

    I'll enter the information in the charts below. I can't guarantee time and location, but I'll do the best I can to balance things.

-Joe-

Subject: RE: Camp New Harmony 2013-14, Workshop Signups
From: Joe Offer
Date: 16 Aug 13 - 03:44 AM

Camp Harmony got its name because it used to meet at Camp Harmon, outside Boulder Creek in the Santa Cruz mountains. The camp moved in about 2010 to Camp Newman, on the road between Santa Rosa and Calistoga. It then became Camp New Harmony. Camp Newman will hold 600 campers, but we usually have 300-350 participants. That gives us lots of extra room.
Camp Newman is in the middle of a huge reconstruction project that will replace most of the housing we use. This link will lead you to information about the first six of a projected 16 new cabins.
Once the 16 cabins are completed, the camp will construct a new dining hall. By the time we're old and grey, we will be able to camp in luxury.
In the meantime, it's still a wonderful place to have our camp.

Lotta Crabtree will not be able to perform at her scheduled concert today. She will be replaced by her understudy, Debby McClatchy.

Please Be Considerate

  • WiFi: Smart phones eat wifi bandwidth -turn wifi off when you're not using it.
  • Parking: The bus needs lots of room. Be careful not to park in its way, and don't drive on camp roads unless you need to leave camp. If you must leave, drive in the same direction the bus goes, so you don't meet it head-on. There's lots of parking on the road to Upper Village.

  • WiFi: Smart phones eat wifi bandwidth -turn wifi off when you're not using it.
  • Parking: Be careful not to park in the way of the bus, and don't drive on camp roads unless you need to leave camp. If you must leave, drive in the same direction the bus goes, so you don't meet it head-on. If you DO meet the bus head-on, it's YOUR job to back up to a wide spot - and people will talk about you for years to come. There's lots of parking on the road to Upper Village, so park your car and take the bus.
  • As your mother told you a thousand times, be careful around vehicles that are backing up. Many people walk right behind the bus when it is backing at the dangerous turnaround at Ruben's house. Photos of people doing dumb things on the bus may be posted on the Internet [or not].

Love to do a contra workshop. Looks like the only time that's available is on the first day -- guess I'm late in signing up... No contras at night? Anyway, I'll do my best to be there 4:00 pm Friday. And, hmm, does Rock really need three hours in a row on Saturday?

Hi, Erik -
We'd love to have you do one or more contra workshops. Somehow, you ended up at last year's page. Hope you'll come back and tell us the name of the workshop, time, day, and location. Note that we don't have an instructor for the daily caller's workshop, and we may cancel it if Quena Crain doesn't come this year.

Here's an e-mail from Robert:

Dear Joe,
Question: Do bears hibernate in the winter? Of course, I want to do some workshops at Harmony. Before I list a few of them, it was nice seeing you at the Getaway even if we didn't talk much. I'm sure we'll more than make up for it at Harmony.
Here are at least a couple of workshop suggestions, and I'll probably call you with some further ones down the road.
1. Songs and Stories of the Supernatural
2. Wit and Humor in Song and Story
3. Songs and Stories of the Bizarre

Peace and love,
Robert Rodriquez
    1 and 3 combined and scheduled on Tuesday. 2 scheduled on Saturday.

Hi Joe,
I'd like to host a workshop on shape note singing midday (12 to 1 or 1 to 2) on Monday.
(By host, I mean that I'll bring a stack of booklets with 32 songs from The Sacred Harp, that we've used in workshops at the SF Free Folk Festival many times.) Reuben's House would be nice for it, but other places would work too.

I see that you already have shape note singing scheduled on Sunday morning, but I won't be getting to camp until late Sunday afternoon, so perhaps someone else can lead that one? And anyway, you can never be too thin nor have too many shape note singing workshops!

Thanks,
Peter
    Peter, we couldn't have shape note singing without you. I've moved it to Monday, Ruben's House, 1 to 2 PM.

Date: 24 Nov 13 - 04:12 PM

Joe, Fred Maslan here. I would like to do a workshop on Z'mirot shel Shabat or Sabbath Songs. Preferably Saturday around lunch. This is the workshop that Charlie and I did at Getaway. I'd also like to do a workshop "Crossing the great Divide" (heading west). and hopefully someone is doing the Great American Songbook.
    Hi, Fred - I'm glad you're doing the Shabbat workshop because I was sorry to miss it at the Getaway. Can you bring Charlie Baum with you? I'm hoping there will also be a Shabbat gathering on Friday evening, but I don't have confirmation on that yet.
    Please give more of a description of where you want to go with your "Great Divide" workshop.
    Don't know of a Great American Songbook workshop yet, but we usually have songs from musicals. Wanna volunteer for a G-A-S workshop?
    -Joe-

Joe, I would love to have Charlie Baum come, The Sabbath songs are usually sung during a meal and seated around a table. Logistically we were able to have a table at Getaway but it was w.o. food and that would be fine although grape juice or other beverage might be nice.Scheduled. Remind me to pick up grape juice and wine. There will be a separate Shabbat on Friday evening.

Across the Great Divide, Moving West: "Sweet Betsy from Pike", "Oregon trail","Augustus and Catherine (Bill Gallaher)" etc. Run it as a circle but with a handout. Scheduled. Waiting for agreement on Shabbat

I would be happy to run a G.A. Songbook workshop which could include Broadway. Again as a Circle. But it would be nice to have a Co-host (hort?)This often works well with a bunch of books from musicals and Tin Pan Alley songs, and I wouldn't be able to bring much from Seattle. Waiting for you and Marlene McCall to choose date/time/location

I figure an hour for the workshops?

Lastly, I will be arriving at noon Friday at Oakland, and I will need a ride out to camp and I will need to be at the Oakland Airport by 11:50 on the first. I don't know if you are the right person to arrange that.

Hope you had a Great Thanksgiving.

From: Joe Offer
Date: 29 Nov 13 - 07:18 PM

Hi, Fred - I'll put you in touch by e-mail with Deborah Sandler and Daniel Hersh and Shelby Solomon, who have usually been at least part of the group organizing our Shabbat service at Camp Harmony/New Harmony. Although workshops don't really begin until Saturday, it might be good to have Shabbat before or after dinner on Friday.
Since we meet at a Jewish camp, the cook always makes terrific challah for Shabbat - but we have to bring our own wine.

Workshops are fifty minutes long, but often extend to an hour. Certain workshops are two hours, but that's by exception.

As at the Getaway, song lyrics handouts are generally not considered kosher, but they sometimes work well for specific workshops. The general practice is to sing your own song in a workshop, and then the next person sings his/her own song. Songs with choruses work especially well.

I'm going to say that there are no copying facilities available for camper use. We do print copies of the daily schedule and there may be a scanner on that printer, but that's something I don't know. I do know that the printer is not offered for general use because we need to make sure it's available and has supplies enough for printing the schedule. So, figure that there is no copy making capability at camp.

I hadn't thought of arranging rides (and don't want to volunteer for the task), but I think we can use this thread quite nicely for that purpose. I'll re-post your request.

I'm going to say this with some trepidation because there are a number of exceptions, but in general, people don't host more than two or three workshops at Camp New Harmony. An exception is the daily caller's workshop in the dance hall, and standard things like the ballads workshops and the Triple Crown and (of course) Improv Chinese opera with Zurnas.

my two series workshop (ltune learning by ear) will only need one hour each day and i would like to take the 2:00 - 2:50pm spot and free the 3-3:50 workshop spots on monday and tuesday for someone else....did not mean to post a two hour consecutive workshop.....also a more accurate description would be, 'learn to play a 3 tune set by ear' (melody and chords) for strings and wind and free reed aerphone (concertinas and accordians)///thanks and holiday hugs :-)
    Hi, Yvette - I changed the two workshops to one hour apiece, but I don't have room on the chart for a longer workshop title. That's why I have people post their requests here - so they can post an explanation that serves as a record. If you want to re-write the yellow sticky on the camp schedule, feel free,
    -Joe-

Hi, Joe,

I'd like to book the Study Center on Tuesday, 12/31, after dinner, as a gathering spot for people who would just as soon ignore New Year's Eve. Let's just call it (depending on character allowance) "New Year's Eve Refugees" or "NYE Refugees."

Thank you,

Beth

    Got it, Beth. Is it a haven for us who don't enjoy indiscriminate kissing at midnight? I tried the kissing thing one year, and decided it wasn't right for me, a shy Midwesterner who prefers a hearty handshake.

I'll be taking workshop requests here at Mudcat until camp begins on Friday, but it's much easier for me if you submit your online requests by the end of the day tomorrow, December 24. After that, I'll have to rely on the camp's Internet connection to get information posted here. That Internet connection has worked for me most of the time at camp, but not always.

And you can schedule workshops with yellow sticky notes once you arrive at camp, so I will shut down Mudcat requests once the schedule boards go up at camp on Friday.

See you at camp.

HI AGAIN JOE,

COULD YOU PLEASE POST MY TUNE LEARNING WORSHOPS AS A TWO PART...PART ONE ON MONDAY AND PART TWO TUESDAY...THANKS A BUNCH AND HAPPY HOLIDAZE..
    [Sigh] I already did that, Yvette. I had to abbreviate because of lack of space. If I use too many words, people can't read it. I got all sorts of complaints about that last year, so the workshop titles have to be shorter this year, even for you.

Hi, Joe. What a wonderfool job you are doing. Thank you.

Last year I recapped my Laughing Lady Radio Show (comedic readings} one night in a (numbered) cabin. (What number? There were lots of couches, and it's up on the hill.) I want to do that again, and since it will be on Sunday night (I think) from 10 to 12:30, when the last bus passes, it is not really in your purview, but I wanted to get it out.

Merry Christmas to all you musical people. Joy joy joy.

Sadie Damascus
    Hi, Sadie - looks like we're roommates, in one of the brand-new cabins. I had a great time at the Laughing Lady session last year. I'll put you down, to make sure the space is reserved for you - it was in Cabin 6.

From Susan Wageman:
    I will be leading the "Remembering Plowshares Coffee House" session at 3 pm on Saturday, December 28 in the Study Center at Camp New Harmony. If you were involved with Plowshares Coffee House at Fort Mason Center (1977-1998) as a performer, volunteer, audience member, or otherwise, I hope you will join us to share some of your stories about that experience. If you never heard
    of Plowshares before, come learn a bit of our local folk music history. For some background on Plowshares and my research project, check out my blog at:

). I'm a night owl and need my beauty rest. Thanks!

Sunday 12PM Study Center
Hawaiin Songs with uke charts (all instruments welcome)

    Fixed it. Thanks for catching that, Karen. You motivated me to double-check all thre requests, and I think they're all right now. Of course, one gets bug-eyed after staring at spreadsheets like this, so mistakes are still a possibility.

Joe,
I was thinking of doing an Intro to the Hammer Dulcimer workshop?? For like total beginners who maybe have never seen the instrument or those that have, that were interested in how it is structured and how do you play it?? I have three that I could bring down with me... Your thoughts....

Hi, Julie - I think you'd find people who would really enjoy it. Just pick a time and space. The Front Room or Mirrored Room might be easy access for transporting hammer dulcimers. I'm leaving for camp now for early setup, but I'll see any requests people post on this Mudcat thread.

Joe,
I've looked at the schedules. If you think it's something we should try, I was looking at Monday, 11:00am, in the mirror room. I was trying to think of a space that would be big enough, but not too cold, that I could easily get all the dulcimers to.... Would this room be your suggestion?

Hi, Julie- I think that space will work best for you. You can always change if you don't like it. When are you coming to camp?


I got to camp Thursday evening. It was 45 degrees in Santa Rosa, but 31 degrees at camp. Dress accordingly.
The new Field Cabins are very nice, but parking is limited nearby.

The weather is delightful in the afternoon here at camp, and lots of music is moving outdoors. Still cold nights and mornings, so dress accordingly. I'm updating all schedules above at midnight every day, with a quick lunchtime update of the schedule for the particular day (e.g., my lunchtime update for today is just on the Saturday schedule).

If you are using wifi on your smart phone at camp, please turn off wifi when you're not using it. The internet service here is "country style," not the generous service you city folk are used to.

The "Goofy" Concert this evening was a huge success, with Mary Hill and Laurie Story Vela as our absolutely crazy emcees. Most fun I've ever had at a concert, I think.
The concert began with a performance of morris dancers (molly dancers) in chicken costumes, beating each other with rubber chickens instead of swords. The best Morris dance parody I've ever seen. Then Sadie Damascus read a hilarious set of directions for making gefilte fish. And there was a song about pigs being in love, and lots more.
