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.

Subject: Tom Lewis May 20
From: Joe Offer
Date: 05 May 21 - 07:22 PM

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.

Where:                Online
Admission:         Free but reservations are required and donations for the performers are welcomed.
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.
