The 2014 (15th Annual) Portsmouth (NH) Maritime Folk Festival (PMFF) will be taking place September 27th and 28th, in downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

We've got a great lineup -- Andy Kenna, Moira Craig & Caroly Robson, John Roberts, Dave Peloquin, Jerry Bryant, Ken Schatz, Alison Lee Freeman, Jeff Warner, and lots of local talent such as Emery Hutchins, London Julie, Great Bay Sailor, Mudhook...

There's a full performer list with bios, etc. at the website -- 2014 PMFF -- along with the schedule, a printable PDF of the schedule, and much more.

Everything is FREE! From the music at historic houses to the Saturday night concert, street busking, mini-concerts and open sings (TWO venues on Saturday), closing shanty blast on Sunday... Please check the online schedule. There have been a couple venue changes this year.

There will be a musical tribute at the Saturday evening concert to Tom Hall (Mudcat's Curmudgeon) and to Bob Webb, both of whom passed away towards the end of last year. Tom was part of every festival since it started in 2000 and Bob Webb performed at all of them except the first.

The festival actually kicks off with the regular Friday evening trad session at The Press Room (4:30-9:00) on Daniel St. to get everyone in a nautical mood.

Come and enjoy all the FREE music and meet some "famous" Mudcatters!

This Thursday, September 18th, Nick Noble is devoting most of his "The Folk Revival" program on WICN in Worcester, Massachusetts to a promo for the PMFF.

Nick's show runs from 7:00-11:00 PM Eastern time. You can hear it by going to "The Folk Revival" and clicking on "Listen Live Online".

Besides interviews with me (Linn Schulz) and other festival performers, Nick is featuring a live sea music session (or as close to a session as we can recreate in the studio) with a bunch of festival performers from this year and past years.

Hope you can listen in!

I've seen/heard them before at a house concert during a previous tour. With Sarah, of course. Miss her. I'll say hi.

The PMFF is lucky this year that it works into their tour schedule. The'll have to miss part of Saturday's events because of a commitment in Boston.

The festival is this weekend!

Actually it starts Thursday evening at the Portsmouth Athenaeum where Glenn Knoblock will explore "New Hampshire and the American Clipper Ship Era" sponsored by the NH Council on the Humanities.

Then the unofficial kickoff is the regular Friday night traditional session at The Press Room from 4:30-9:00 PM.

Glad everyone enjoyed our session on Nick Noble's show -- it was GREAT fun to be there with a great bunch of people. Thanks so much to Nick and WICN for doing it. Nick's weekly show "The Folk Revival" is very much worth tuning in to on your radio or on your computer. Check it out -- Thursday's 7-11 PM Eastern Time.

Judy and I will attend the regular Friday evening session at the Pressroom with our old friends Mike Kennedy and Chris Setari.

I'll also be playing banjo and singing with my good friend Alison Freeman for her scheduled sets on Saturday and Sunday.

I'm especially looking forward to meeting Andy Kenna and hearing Ken Schatz again.

Cheerily,
Charlie Ipcar

Wow, Charlie -- twice in a week!

It will be good to see Mike and Chris again, too.

I'm off to the Athenaeum to hear Glenn Knoblock speak on New Hampshire and clipper ships -- for the PMFF sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council.

Crowded and energetic unofficial festival kickoff at thr regular Press Room Friday session. Some regular festival goers from western Massachusetts, Gloucester, mid coast Maine...one couple sailed into Portsmouth for the festival. A couple new to the festival are from Portland, Oregon. Albany, New York was well-represented.

Andy Kenna and his wife got there early to socialize with Eamon Coyne -- old friends from Liverpool. They were reunited at the Press Room bar when Andy was first at the festival in 2009.

John Roberts and Ken Schatz also arrived during the session.

Everybody seemed to be enjoying themselves...and the festival hasn't even really started yet!

Couldn't find a parking place close to Anchor Line, but heard when I got to the Warner House that the events there (Jeff Warner & Jerry Bryant; then London Julie, Alison Lee Freeman and Moira Craig & Carlyn Robson) were packed and enthusiastic -- and people really liked the new venue.

I drove around looking fo a parking place closer to The Press Room and the Warner House and managed princess parking smack in front of the Press Room's door. Walked down to the Warner House for the singing in the garden -- John Roberts, Andy Kenna, and Ken Schatz. Alas, had to leave before the end to get the room set up for the Open Sing at The Press Room. Had a full house and a lot of strong voices there. One of the shanties I sang there was one of Tom's (Curmudgeon's) that I'd never led before...dredged it up from some part of my brain.

Great concert! London Julie wowed the audience...as did our headliner Andy Kenna. He is just such a fine entertainer. I'm so glad Tom was able to get him in 2009 and that Andy was back this year -- this time on the concert stage. Showmanship and musicianship sure make the audience happy!

I got through the tribute to Tom Hall (Curmudgeon) and Bob Webb... I sang one of Tom's songs (Bert Lloyd's version of "Maggie May") -- we kept the tribute upbeat. Dave Peloquin sang one for Bob, the representatives of three groups who formed because of Tom and the festival and the Press Room session (Great Bay Sailor, Mudhook, and London Julie) surprised me by singing the same shanty (as one of the songs they most remembered Tom by) that I had sung for the first time earlier at the Open Sing. Then Jeff Warner sang "The Road to "Mandalay for Bob and John Roberts (who said he didn't remember when he met Tom...he'd just ALWAYS known him) sang a song for both of them. Hutch closed the tribute with "The Parting Glass" which we all joined in on. I should have expected it, but I choked up , tears clogging my singing., and backed away from the microphone. All I could think about was Tom and Bob Frost and David Behm and Rocky Rockwood singing that on the stage at The Music Hall for Jay Smith's memorial.

Lots more music today. After my set at the Athenaeum (first time without Tom), I'll be hosting the singing at another new venue, Book & Bar. Shanty Blast at 5 PM in Market Square.

Sounds wonderful and heart-tugging, Linn. There are many musicians there I'd love to hear again, but kindly give Caroline Robson and Moira Craig warm regards from me. I am very sad to miss seeing and hearing them again.

Too tired and, well, I don't know what, last night to post.

Yesterday was absolutely lovely. I had the first cameo concert at the Portsmouth Athenaeum (private library -- magnificent collection of paintings, ship models, etc. lining the high walls) and Emery Hutchins (who was emceeing) accompanied me on concertina on three songs, the rest I did a capella. Really strange performing there without Tom...

Then I ran the show at our new venue, Book & Bar. What a wonderful place! The music and audience was great, good selection of beer and Laurette assured me they had an exquisite selection of wine. The food there is also very good and...hey! books! Reasonably priced pre-read books. What more could one ask for? And we didn't have to compete with the game on big screen TVs as previous years at The Rusty Hammer.

And then at 5:00, we drowned out the motorcycles at the Shanty Blast.

I just realized I have a bunch of things that have to be done before I head over to a friend's at 3:30, so I'd better get doing them.

Book and Bar is a fine new venue, and RiRa's worked very well for the parallel sea music session on Saturday.

I should be posting a first set of Festival photos this evening as an album on my Facebook page but I doubt if I'll get to finish them all before we take off for Louisiana on Friday.

Thanks again to everyone for making this a wonderful Festival.

Sciencegeek-

Good to see that you and Mike made it back to Western New York!

Cheerily,
Charlie Ipcar
