Date: 06 Aug 15 - 12:53 AM

This is the 2015-16 workshop signup thread. For 2016-17, go here (click)



New Harmony - SFFMC's New Years Camp

Tuesday, December 29, 2015 - Sunday, January 3, 2016
Registration for camp closed December 8. If you missed it, be sure to sign up in September, 2016, to get the early bird discount.


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 every year during the week after Christmas at URJ Camp Newman, on the road between Calistoga and Santa Rosa, north of San Francisco. Some 300 people will be there for 6 days of song and dance and whatnot.
The Camp New Harmony Website is http://sffmc.org/harmony_body.html.

To get an idea what the camp is all about, see the threads for previous years, crosslinked above.


    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 e 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.

Note that the "lower village" cabins have been demolished. The Health Lodge is closed due to construction, and is scheduled to be demolished if it isn't gone already. The bus route has been adjusted because of the construction.

I'd like to host the River Songs swap. It should be in a biggish room, because it always draws a crowd, and ideally the last workshop of the day, because it tends to run over time a bit (so many rivers, so little time!)

Joe, it might be fun to have a workshop "Guess the Song from the Intro" In most cases the composers put as much effort into writing the intros as the did in the refrain. And nowadays the intros are rarely sung. Having received my copies of "Rise Again" I noticed that in most cases (not all) the intro is left out.

Fred

please do not put this opposite the rivers workshop above.

Joe Sez: How 'bout Carpeted Room, 11 AM, Wednseday?
We left most intros out of Rise Again unless they were commonly known and sung - too little space. Hal Leonard gave us 300 pages, and we hit that exactly.

Hello, I'd like to lead a workshop on Songs that sound traditional but aren't, and another on Irish Songs in Reubens... I don't much care when as long as it doesn't conflict too mightily with another Ballads/ trad workshop. Also, Yes M'am would like to do a mini-concert. on Friday or Saturday evening, in the Carpeted Room. Thank you,
-Amelia

Joe sez: OK, how's this:
  • Sound trad but ain't: Ruben's, Wed Noon
  • Irish Songs: Ruben's, Fri 2 PM
  • Yes Ma'am (Yes, Ma'am): Carpeted Room, Saturday, 8 PM

Hi! I have not led a CNH workshop before so I don't know if there is a shortcut word meaning "each one bring one of the following type of song." Anyway, I envision a workshop in which each person brings a call-and-response type song (from any culture). The person who brings it calls, and everyone else responds.

I am not familiar enough with the sites to choose a room, nor do I much care, but I would not want to miss a concert or Shabbat or a Madge workshop to do this. Nor a meal! But otherwise, any time of any one day would be fine.

It is also fine to wait and schedule this one at almost the last minute. Thank you for organizing this!

I have a question for more seasoned Camp New Harmony people.
From here where I sit in mid-October, Camp seems like winter holiday time. I have some lovely Solstice songs, as well as some well-known Xmas carols whose words have been slightly adapted to make them Solstice songs.
In your experience, are people "done"' with Solstice/Xmas by the time Camp rolls around or have people enjoyed turn-of-year-song workshops?

Now, Jennifer, the idea is that YOU are supposed to pick the time and place, so I don't get the blame....

The idea workshop title is no more than 4 words, because it has to fit on the smallest size of Post-It notes. "Call-and-Response Songs" plus your name will work just fine.


The most popular venues for a cappella singing are Ruben's House and the Carpeted Room, The other venues are smaller, but may work very well for you.

In the past, we've had some very nice workshops for solstice and Christmas carols. Most of us don't take down the tree before we go to camp. We haven't had a carols workshop for a few years, so it's a good idea to do one.

Robert Rodriquez: Commercials, jingles, and TV/Radio theme songs (1940s to present) - Thursday afternoon. Note: Robert would like to have a cohost, if somebody would like to


I told Robert that we try to limit workshop titles to three or four words, so the title and location and leader will all fit on the little yellow sticky notes we use on the workshop boards. So, he called this morning and said the title of his second workshop is:
    Don't Bet on the Prince: From Scheherazade to the Raging Grannies [Songs & Stories of Bold, Clever, & Resourceful Women]

I think I'll boil it down to just "Bold/Clever/Resourceful Women"

But it's good to give a more detailed description of the workshop here in this thread, knowing that it needs to be boiled down to three words, four at the max - and I'd rather have the workshop leaders do the boiling down, so I don't get blamed.

Friday 3 PM if I can find a co-host: Malvina Reynolds/Sam Hinton songs.
Also sometime if I can find a co-host: support group for songwriters with half-baked songs.

Hi Joe! Thanks for doing hthis complex job!
I think it's fine and good not to give all the same slots to one person. However I need to fine tune your shuffling of my workshops a bit, it I may.
(1) On Wednesday, I might not arrive until lunchtime. Perhaps Easy-to-Join songs could be in Carpeted Room at 2? (I would like to attend Train and River songs.)
(2) on Thursday, I really want to go to Madge's Balkan songs class, as I mentioned before I distracted you with other questions. Do you think Songs of Winter Celebrations should move to 5 PM?
(3) I found a co-host for the Sam and Malvina workshop for Friday at 11. His name is Wade Gray.
Have a sweet couple of weeks!

Joe - I seem to have contributed to an abundance, not to say a superfluity of dangerous, wily, heroic, and otherwise obstreperous women in the titles of this year's workshops. May I alter my Thurs 4pm workshop to "trad songs of Bad Decisions"?   The idea would be to bring traditional songs in which the story hinges on someone knowing better but doing something dangerous/naive/foolhardy anyway. Sometimes it works out, sometimes not. This workshop is not limited to ballads. thank you! Casey Casebeer

Joe - I would like to do a workshop called The Grand Come All Ye Ceilidh
in Cabin 6 on Friday form 3-4:50. It'll be a xperimental run of the multi-genre ceilidh some of us were discussing on the Harmony list a little while ago.

I have some other workshops in mind,but I can wait to get to camp to sign up for them


    Sounds like fun, Ed. It's on the schedule, as requested. We had a keg of beer and lessons on how to "pull" a pint at the ceilidh I went to in Scotland this summer. Will beer be provided? Can we steal from the cache for the John Barleycorn workshop?

Joe, I would like to schedule a Bob Reid and Friends concert for Friday at 7:30- 9 in Cabin 6.
Bob Reid
    All set, Bob. I'm sure it will be a good concert. And it only overlaps the main concert by half an hour, so I can see most of both.

Gee, I just spent 15 minutes writing message and I don't know if it was sent. Anyway, I would like to lead a workshop on "getting to know your guitar fretboard" on Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. I'm also available to get together with you over the next few days to help work on the schedule, unless it's a one person job, it doesn't really matter. - Elly (414) 342-1552
    Hi, Elly - I put you in the Study Center at 9 on Wed & Thurs, and Saturday

Thanks for doing this! I need a slot for "2016 SF Free Festival Q & A and planning", to be led by Jeremy Friedenthal, Amelia Hogan and me. Friday 10 am in the study center is my preferred time and place.

Joe talked with Yael and she cancelled her 3:00 and took !:00 pm on Saturday for her swing dance workshop. Can you give me another hour of Swing Band practice on Saturday from 3:00 to 3:50 pm in the dance hall and I can prepare, for three hours in the Dance Hall? It would be appreciated. Band singer/singer practice (same wordage).
Also I heard that Dan Hicks has liver cancer and I want to do a workshop on his music at Reuben's House on Thursday from 1:00 to 1:50 pm. Title can be "Dan Hicks Songs". Thanks
Cris Johnson
    You got it, Cris.

Hey Joe -

Can I have the Study Center on Wed from 3-3:30 for Sea Chanteys?   And I'd like to move my English Music Hall on Wed 1-1:50 in Rubens to 2-2:50 in Rubens.   Thanks!
    Assuming you don't really want a 30-minute chantey session, I put you down for 3-3:50 in the Study Center for Chanteys, and in Ruben's House 2-2:50 for Music Hall. Right?
    I'm looking forward to an extra hour for chanteys.

    Little Jack Horner
    Sat in the corner,
    Eating a Christmas pie;
    He put in his thumb,
    And pulled out a plum,
    And said 'What a good boy am I!'

I have to give myself a little self-affirmation to do today's scheduling work. What I really want to do is take a nap before I head off to sing at Midnight Mass, and then go home and sleep a few short hours before heading back to sing at 7:30 AM. Christmas is another word for Cruelty to Choirsingers....

Hi Joe - I had requested a double slot for the "Songwriter's Circle Works-in-Progress" in Yellow Room 22 on January 1 from 4 to 5:50. It seems to me that there are quite a few songwriters at camp. I wanted to ensure time to talk about the works in progress and support each other in our songwriting.

Could you please add add "Songwriter's Circle Works-in-Progress" in Yellow Room 22 from 5 to 5:50?

- Susan
    Hi, Susan - I'm glad you caught that. I fixed it. Merry Christmas!

I'm leaving for camp on Monday morning, December 28. I will keep online workshop signups open until I start working on the schedules at camp, probably the afternoon of Tuesday, December 29 - I'll post a notice here when I close down-and that's when I'll post any workshops entered here after this message. After that, please sign up for workshops on the boards in the screened room in the Dining Hall building at camp.
I will update schedules approximately noon and midnight daily while we're at camp.
See you there.
Dress warm! High temperatures will be in the mid-50s, and lows in the low 30s. No rain predicted.

Hi Joe,
No biggie, but if you could change title of my Wed guitar workshop to A Dozen Ways To Work A Flatpick (or if it still won't fit, 12 Ways to Work A Flatpick). If you don't get to it, 'sokay. Thanks. -Ray

I'd like to do Musical Theater song swap on Wednesday, preferably 2 hrs. consecutive in the carpeted room. Looks like the only time available is lunchtime, but that's OK I guess. Alternatively, 1 hr at Reuben's house. Please don't conflict w/ other popular singing workshops. Thanks!
Hi, Kathrine. I put you in Yellow Room 22 late afternoon. Nothing available midday.

I got home from camp this evening. We had fewer people, but still a lot of campers. I think some stayed away because camp was a few days later than usual - January 3 is the latest day we end camp. It's all based on what day of the week Christmas falls on. Can't say I understand the formula for determining the dates of camp.
I think some people stayed away because we warned them that construction at the camp would make it a bit harder to get around this year. It was more difficult, but we made it work.
SF Folk Music Club members, feel free to post any comments or suggestions below.
Thanks for coming. I had a great time.
