There are lots of events happening online during this pandemic. I get a lot of event announcements by email and don't know where to put them. Let's use this thread as a place to announce them. Once the event date is past, I'll delete them.

Please feel to post notices for performances you think we'd enjoy. Be sure to include the URL (address) of the performance, even if you can't make it into a link.

The number of online festivals and workshops is overwhelming.
The calender of Fiddle Hell (Massachusetts but online) itself is overwhelming. Dates 15-18 Apr (& 3 months access to videos)

Before that on the weekend of 9-11 April, from Oregon, there is the Menucha Ukelele Band Camp and from east coast USA, the Old Time Guitar Retreat. In the case of the Guitar retreat, you can register for individual workshops if you don't want to to purchase a full weekend ticket.

This weekend, 19-20 March; there is the Inishowen Traditional Singing Festival from Ireland The Nonsuch Dulcimer Club (UK) spring fling is on as well, but registrations closed last weekend. The club has been having some online sessions and short workshops during online, so if you play either hammered dulcimer or mountain dulcimer you could look them up - especially if you are in the same side of the Atlantic.

"Music allows humans to tell stories, share traditions and express our complex emotions. Like a kaleidoscope, as a melody or rhythm is shared, it subtly or dramatically reflects the vibrancy of that time and place. Classical music wouldn’t be the same without the global influences that have left their indelible mark on the art form." - Michael Christie,

Past performances available for viewing through 30 Sept 2021.
A Tour of China, Holocaust Remembrance, A Tour of India, A Tour of Japan.

Ruth & Sadie Price
April 15   7:30-8:30 Greenwich Mean Time
Falcon House Concert, Whitby, UK

What is it about siblings’ voices that makes them blend so magically? Sisters Ruth and Sadie Price present spine-tingling harmonies as they belt out a few rousing chorus songs and maybe a shanty or two in the next Falcon House Concert. Firm favorites of Whitby Folk Week, and regulars at many traditional singers’ clubs and festivals around England, the two sisters offer some of the finest examples of traditional Yorkshire song.

Subject: Martin Carthy Concert May 1, 2021
From: Joe Offer
Date: 17 Apr 21 - 12:28 PM

We did it! We've persuaded Martin Carthy to do an on-line concert, Saturday, May 1st. 8 pm UK time (which translates to 3 pm on the US east coast; noon on the US west coast; and the wee hours of the morning in Australia).

Please, please, please! spread the word!! UK musicians really got slammed by the COVID lockdowns and universal prohibition on live gatherings of any sort. God forbid we should have sung together in the same room! Meanwhile, Martin told me he hasn't had a gig for . . . and then he couldn't even remember! Here's yet another musician who hasn't seen a paycheck for months on end. He is eager to perform, even if it's to an invisible audience.

The concert is free, BUT we are suggesting £8-$10 per person (more if you can) that will go 100% to the artist. In order to avoid scammers, we're keeping the link out of circulation; instead, we're asking people to pre-register (email or through one of the event's cosponsors: Folklore Society of Greater Washington, Old Songs, Folk Music Society of New York, and the Folk Song Society of Greater Boston).

We're hoping for a groundswell of support for Martin.

notice from The Rosenberg Fund for Children

Tomorrow morning, CBS's This Morning: Saturday will broadcast a segment on Strange Fruit, which will include information on writer Abel Meeropol and interviews with his two sons, RFC Founder Robert Meeropol and Advisory Board member Michael Meeropol.

We’re told the approximate air time will be 7:45 AM EST [24 Apr 2021]and it will also be available to stream afterwards on the show’s website.

Abel wrote the song in the 1930s and Billie Holiday’s defiant performances cemented its place in civil rights history as well as popular culture. Strange Fruit’s macabre lyrics confronted the horror of lynchings; it has persisted in the public’s consciousness and reemerged as recent subject matter for the 2020 documentary, Billie, and the 2021 academy-nominated feature film The United States vs Billie Holiday.

Poems, chart-topping hit songs, and protest chants in support of Black Lives continue to evoke "strange fruit" as a metaphor. As each day Black Americans -- even children -- are murdered at the hands of police and far right-wing insurrectionists form a veritable modern-day lynch mob at the Capitol, the message of Strange Fruit sadly endures.

We hope you’ll tune in with us and revisit the history of this iconic American protest song. If you catch the segment, feel free to email us and let us know what you think!

Jennifer Meeropol, info[AT]

Falcon House Concerts Presents
Tom Lewis
Thursday, May 20
7:30 pm UK
2:30 pm USA east
11:30 am USA west

Tom Lewis loves to sing. And he loves it when people sing along. His powerful voice easily reaches to the rafters and just seems to pull other voices up aloft with it. Known throughout the maritime music world for penning classics like A Sailor Ain’t a Sailor (The Last Shanty), Marching Inland, Sailor’s Prayer (the one where the dove has wings as sharp as razors), Tom is just as likely to belt out a traditional sea chantey pulled straight from Davy Jones locker. He’ll even tell you a story, and it might even be true!

Tom got hooked on sea music when he heard the likes of Louis Killen, Archie Fisher and Ewan McColl in his early folk club days. During his 23 years as a submariner in Her Majesty’s Navy, Tom never missed the chance to visit folk clubs, concerts and festivals, building a reputation that has spread across three continents. Add to his credit ten albums and a hefty songbook.

Like other Falcon events, we're suggesting a donation (£10–$15) to support the artist.

Next up: John Conolly Thursday, June 17
John Ward Trio, Thursday, July 15

Mark your calendars and stay tuned, Janie Meneely

From Joe Offer:
Janie and Rob are doing a wonderful job of these concerts. The Martin Carthy concert was Saturday, May 1, but the remaining concerts on the schedule are on Thursdays, all at 7:30 PM London time:
  • Tom Lewis, May 20
  • John Conolly, June 17
  • John Ward Trio, July 15.

I don't know of the John Ward Trio, but I have always dreamed of seeing Martin Carthy, Tom Lewis, and John Conolly in concert. I thought that John Conolly would be here in California in 2021, but the concert tour was cancelled.

As performers age and the cost of visas and such continues to increase, there's a good chance we won't get to see these wonderful performers in person in the U.S. I'm very thankful to Janie and Rob for introducing us to them online, but I'm sad because these online concerts may be my only opportunity.

Information & Reservations:

Jesse Palidofsky and Seth Kibel: Better Angels CD Release Concert
Hear powerful songs of social justice and healing in a free online concert/CD release party by Azalea City Recordings artist and Washington Folk Festival favorite Jesse Palidofsky. Jesse will team up with award-winning clarinetist/saxophonist Seth Kibel, violinist Christine Kharazian and bass virtuoso Herman Burney to celebrate the release of Jesse’s new recording of original songs, Our Better Angels.

The CD showcases Jesse’s twin passions, music and healing. Its title invokes Abraham Lincoln’s First Inaugural Address,
“We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.”

Throughout his career, Jesse has used his songwriting talent to advance the cause of humanity. He’s worked with children with cancer, at social justice rallies, in hospices and in prisons. Jesse’s “I Am an Immigrant” reached #1 on the international folk charts and his updated “America the Beautiful: 2020” with Claire Lynch and Lea Gilmore has 65,000 hits on YouTube.

FSGW brings the sounds of the lonesome trail to cyberspace!

Larry Hanks and Steve Cormier: Cowboy and Western American Music
Online • Sunday, May 30, 2021 • 7 pm • Concert starts at 7:30 EDT

Hear authentic, heartfelt singing about the vanishing American West in a free, online concert on Sunday, May 30, 2021.

Cowboy music is about the human condition, western style. Larry Hanks’ earthy, deeply resonant voice draws us deep into the western landscape. For decades, Hanks has been delighting audiences with his rough-hewn bass vocals, tastefully spare 6 and 12-string guitar accompaniments, and virtuosic mouth harp playing. After a lengthy hiatus, Hanks is back on the trail with recent, successful tours of the US, UK, and Europe.

Steve Cormier’s singing is so perfect that the New Mexico Humanities Council made him the official cowboy singer for its Chautauqua program. And he isn’t just a pretty voice. He’s spent a lifetime learning the cowboy’s craft?how to throw a lariat, how to brand a calf, and how to use songs to calm a nervous herd. Steve sings about the real people he’s met on the range: farmers, cowboys, factory workers, schemers and dreamers. His concerts provide insight into a way of life that has almost vanished from the American landscape.

After the concert, join in a sing-around with the performers.
Please register at, to get the concert link.

Cost to register: Free; Suggested donation: $20 per listener. (If you feel generous and can afford it, a higher amount will help support the performers.) Info: Charlie Baum,

The Boruma Trio is a musical collaboration featuring fiddle player Eileen O' Brien from Nenagh in North Tipperary, accordion player Andrew MacNamara from Tulla, East Clare and on piano and tin whistle Geraldine Cotter from Ennis. It is a unique and exciting musical ensemble, which successfully unites the two stylistic musical traditions of East County Clare and North County Tipperary; exploring the C#/D and B/C accordion playing styles through creative, empathic musical arrangement. The Boruma Trio derives its name from Brian Boru High King of Ireland, who was born at the Fort of Kincora, also known as Béal Boruma.

He fronts the acoustic swing/roots/blues ensemble, the Chesapeake Sheiks, and is actively engaged in reuniting the Piedmont blues with its origins of African American buck and tap dancing. He was honored with the National Endowment of the Arts 2017 National Heritage Fellowship and the 2021 Maryland Heritage Award, both among the most prestigious awards for traditional arts. For many decades, Phil was half of the celebrated duo, Cephas & Wiggins, until John Cephas’ death in 2009. You can hear a Sound Clip

Azam Ali
An Allegory of Belief, Truth, Power and Resistance in Art
"Taking a self-reflective approach, Azam Ali examines how music serves different aspirations for a second-generation Iranian, often playing a central role in political movements: strengthening and unifying the voice of the people seeking social justice against a common adversary. She believes an artist’s greatest act of resistance is to extract every drop of truth from their lived experience and express it to its fullest.

"Azam Ali is a Los Angeles-based Iranian singer and producer whose international career spans over fifteen years and includes twelve collaborative and solo albums as well as two prestigious Canadian JUNO Award nominations. Her voice described by Billboard Magazine as “an unforgettable instrument” has been featured in some of the biggest Hollywood movies, TV shows and video games such as “Matrix- Revolutions,” “Thor - The Dark World,” “The Fight Club,” “True Blood,” and “Prison Break.”

"The Iranian Music Conference Series is made possible thanks to generous support from the Farhang Foundation, The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music Department of Ethnomusicology, and the UCLA Center for Near Eastern Studies, with additional support from the Dean of The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music."
