Falcon House Concerts Presents
Rob van Sante and Chris Parkinson
Saturday, February 5, 2022
8 pm UK
3 pm USA east
noon am USA west

http://www.youtube.com/user/Tulip0852/live

Donations appreciated: PayPal: tulip0853@gmail.com
Many of you will recognize Rob van Sante as the inveterate sound man behind the Falcon Audio Visual Arts Studio and this concert series. But he’s also the consummate musician. His flair for harmony and his exquisite guitar playing have carried him around the world, working with such folk stalwarts as Danny Thompson, Tom McConville, Tom Napper and Jon Strong. He teamed up with the Battlefield Band in 1991 and began touring as a duo with the Batties’ co-founder and lead singer Alan Reid in 2001. More recently he’s toured with John Conolly (Fiddlers’ Green) and his American wife, songwriter Janie Meneely (Twiddles; Nasty Nell). His repertoire digs deep into the canon of English folk music old and new, and includes a handful of songs he’s co-written with Meneely.
      Joining him will be Chris Parkinson—Parky, for short—who plays anything with buttons, plus harmonica, and keyboard. Plenty of folks remember him for his work with the House Band, which produced 9 albums over two decades of touring. Additionally he's played with the likes of Ralph McTell, the Waterson-Carthy clan, Richard Grainger, Alistair Russell, Steve Phillips and others. This will be his first time working with Rob, but hold onto your hats, folks. They're going to blow you away.
Expect a few sets of rollicking tunes to complement Rob's stirring ballads.

Expanding Your Folk Song Repertoire with Shay Black
Mondays 7:30 - 8:45 PM Pacific time (US)— January 10th for six weeks
Online via Zoom
introductory video

registration, fee $155.00 for six weeks, https://secure.thefreight.org/10916/expanding-folk-song-rep

"In this class series, the emphasis is on building your repertoire of songs, so Shay will teach up to five songs per class from different Irish, Scottish, English and other traditions. These range from the humble “Come-all-ye” to the Child Ballad to the folk anthem. His teaching style is learning through repetition, so no background knowledge of music theory is necessary. Starting from "If you can hum it, you can sing it," Shay will work through songs in an easy to learn call-and-response fashion. This class is not for listeners; you will be singing all through this class in a very supportive group setting.

"Lyrics are handed out in class and are also made available electronically afterwards, along with recordings of the songs taught, to facilitate learning. You don't need to attend every class -- songs from the previous week are reviewed at every class.

"Although not the primary focus of the class, Shay is prepared to give individual performance pointers to those who feel they might need it, and also will let students know venues and opportunities to sing in front of an audience."

Perfect song for January 6
It's called
"January 6th," a hard-hitting Blues by Guitar Goddess Elly Wininger,

I’m also going to be listening on Sunday, January 23 when Elly teams up with Roots Guitarist Extraordinaire, Johnny Harper, in a free, online FSGW Sunday Concert. You can register to get the concert link

I’d known from previous Getaways that Johnny Harper was an awe-inspiring guitarist, but I hadn’t heard Elly until the last Fall’s Getaway and I was blown away! (“Blown Away at the Getaway,” there’s a song in there!) Here’s a link to Johnny's videos, so you can get a glimmer of the fantastic concert that's coming our way! https://www.johnnyharper.net/audio-video

One person who has been brightening Saturday evenings worldwide with his short concerts is Scottish musician Dougie Maclean. He is now up to concert no 117 at one per week. Most of these are free, though he does the occasional longer one for a modest fee. And you can still see most of the past episodes, I think. The platforms used are via his Facebook page and YouTube, and usually start at 9pm UK time.
He should have been doing a live concert in Edinburgh's Greyfriars Kirk last Friday evening, as part of the Hogmanay celebrations but this was cancelled owing to the Covid situation, so kind-hearted Dougie did a free online concert from his own studio at Butterstone in Perthshire, starting shortly before midnight and bringing us into 2022.
Here's a link to the most recent one (Hogmanay): he starts talking at 3'57"
Dougie Maclean Concerts

Then there is fabulous musician Tim Edey who has been doing a lot of Saturday evenings too - his so-called "Sleeping Tunes" sessions. Also on both Facebook and YouTube and usually start about 10pm UK time, and sometimes go on well after midnight! Also an appreciative international audience including many fellow professionals. An absolute maestro on both guitar and melodeon, and sometimes we get the occasional song from him, or from his wife Isobel Crowe, who has a lovely voice. (And his tech has improved a lot from the early days when he was the victim of poor broadband connection
Here's a link to his most recent session, but again you can access past sessions on YouTube also:

Falcon Audio Visual Arts is happy to announce the 2022 winter/spring roster for our monthly house concerts, performed live in our Whitby studio (on Saturday nights this year) and starting with the esteemed Martin Carthy, January 15 [updated] at 8 pm GMT (3 pm US east; noon US west). We're lucky to have several co-sponsors for the show (more are welcome!!) who share in the promotion and setting up tip jars: Old Songs Inc., the Folksong Society of Greater Boston, the Folklore Society of Greater Washington, Branford Folk Music Society . . . . so far.

During last year's dreary lockdown, Rob van Sante and I created a studio stage where artists can perform for audiences all over the world as if they were in someone’s living room (which, in fact, they were—namely ours!). Given the rousing support the shows received, we’re gearing up to do it again, beginning again with Martin, and featuring Archie Fisher, Martin Wyndham-Read and Tom Lewis among others.

As per usual with house concerts, these performances are free and open to all who can get within eyeball distance of a computer screen. But again, as per usual with house concerts, we hope our viewers will support the performers by chucking a few bucks, euros, pounds, rands, yen, dollars into the proverbial tip jar most convenient for you.

To tune into the livestream event, go to https://www.youtube.com/user/Tulip0852/live (previous concerts also at this link). This will automatically take you to the Falcon House Concert “stage.” Tune in five minutes before showtime, when the host, Janie Meneely, will introduce the program. If you are unable to catch the live broadcast (because of time zone or other challenges), you will be able to watch it (and donate) at your convenience on YouTube for a week. After that, the videos will be available through the Falcon House Concert Archive.

Oops: just realised that the thread title specifies ONLINE events: Celtic Connections this coming year was meant to be mainly live events, although a few of the workshops were again going to be online. I guess we may see other events moving to online - if they happen at all.

And as all the Hogmanay live concerts have been cancelled in Edinburgh, it is heart-warming to see that Dougie Maclean (who should have been doing a live concert in the Greyfriars Kirk) is going to do do an online concert instead: it will be free and on his Facebook page from 11.45.pm GMT on 31st December.

For anyone hoping to go to Celtic Connections in Glasgow (Jan 20 - Feb 6 2022) it might be worthwhile keeping an eye on their website and Facebook page for any developments/cancellations. Here is their most recent statement issued on 23rd December:

“Today’s announcement and the impact of the Omicron variant spells a very difficult time for events, fans and artists and we want to let our audiences know we are working extremely hard to bring audiences a Celtic Connections experience in 2022 in the safest possible way.

These restrictions and the timeline against future reviews present significant challenges for the festival. We are in active dialogue with the Scottish Government and other partners, as well as production staff, artists and other stakeholders, about our plans in light of evolving guidance.

Unfortunately a small number of shows are no longer able to go ahead due to the ongoing disruption caused by the pandemic. Ticket holders for these shows will be contacted directly to arrange refunds or provide information on rescheduled dates.

We are reviewing all aspects of the festival and programme on an ongoing basis and looking at how we showcase the very best traditional folk and roots music that Scotland and the world has to offer.

We will update our audiences again with plans for the 2022 festival as soon as we can through this period of uncertainty.”

three hour long homemade instrument workshop, starts 7 pm Eastern time, 12 midnight UTC (GMT)
https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/your-house-is-an-orchestra-tickets-223734053577

With the right touch - tapping, bowing, blowing, and shaking – anything from your kitchen cupboard, closet, or garage can sound beautiful. Glass, plastic, rubber, aluminum, stainless steel – all take on the breath of life in our hands. Mark [Sepic] will also demonstrate the building of very simple musical instruments with common materials, ie: steel drums -(tin cans, “tuned” with a hammer), marimbas, (broken hockey sticks), thumb pianos - (popsicle sticks and clamps), gongs – (tin cans taped together) and banjos– (Plastic "take out" containers and rubber bands).

ABOUT the ARTIST

Mark Sepic - Musician, Sound Sculptor

Mark Sepic is an internationally recognized guitarist/composer, whose virtuoso finger-style guitar, appealing vocal style, impeccable taste, child-like sense of play and some electronic loop-wizardry make his concerts irresistible joy-ride into the magic of music. His projects have been featured in thirteen consecutive Toronto Jazz Festivals and have taken him abroad to Germany, Cuba, and Singapore.

“But wait – there’s more!”

A passionate environmentalist, Mark's "Junkestra" program, a hands-on wonderland of recycling, integrates sports, music, and art, celebrating the musical potential of everyday things. In schools, galleries and festivals throughout Ontario, Mark has helped Canadians recycle over 250,000 items, giving tin cans, toilet paper rolls and plastic jars a musical afterlife as drums, kazoos and maracas. Larger items – pots, pans, plumbing and yes, even the kitchen sink, become sound sculptures, 12 of which dot the Ontario landscape, from Toronto and Hamilton to Barry's Bay and Moose Factory.

We are so excited about our FREE online book launch and concert on Sunday 12th December at 7.30pm! Over the past year we have worked with 9 composers to create new works inspired by a media map.. Participants have uploaded their responses to their own environment in music, words, images and videos and met with the composers through free online workshops to discuss, help create and then learn the new music and songs. We were lucky to have been nominated as Community Project of the Year at this year's MG Trad Music Awards and we are looking forward to sharing the new music and songs with everyone. All of our wonderful composers will be showcasing their new music and we'll be having live interviews too.

Watch on the Dee and Don Ceilidh Collective Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/DeeDonCeilidhCollective or Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC28H9uPkIKgU-VX_f99GbMA and help us celebrate Our Living Rivers and Glens project!

A proposition of decolonial subjectivity through Bhawaiya folk songs of North Bengal
By Dr Nasrin Khandoker
Associate Professor, Department of Anthropology, Jahangirnagar University

Chair: Dr Richard David Williams, SOAS, University of London

Wednesday, 15 December 2021, 6.30 - 8.30 pm GMT

Zoom Session, organised by Brick Lane Circle

Nasrin’s ethnographic journey to examine the subversive possibilities to defy oppressive marital norms with Bangla folk songs has been embedded with her lived experience of being a Bengali woman. She was part of her research tracing the perils and pleasures of embodied sexual subjectivity through various Bangla social-cultural fields. The histories of Bengal were made by the political, religious and cultural encounter between British colonial mechanism and nationalist collective struggle of reconstructing the tradition of the Indian subcontinent.

24 NOVEMBER 2021 13.30-14.30 GMT
BOOKINGS CLOSE at 23.00 (GMT) on 23 November
This is a joint seminar by QUB Arts Management & Cultural Policy & Music Events at Queen's [University Belfast]

Just how “Irish” is traditional Irish music? In her recent book Trad Nation: Gender, Sexuality, and Race in Irish Traditional Music, Tes Slominski uses ethnography, oral history, and archival research to challenge the longstanding practice of using ethnic nationalism as a framework for understanding vernacular music traditions. Tes Slominski argues that ethnic nationalism hinders this music’s development today and is at odds with an increasingly multiethnic Ireland.
Following a short talk about her book, there will be a Q&A chaired by Dr Ioannis Tsioulakis

Tes Slominski is a music and sound scholar who studies music, identity, and nationalism in Ireland and in its diaspora. She recently published Trad Nation: Gender, Sexuality, and Race in Irish Traditional Music, and is co-editor (with Kimberly Francis) of the gender/sexuality revision of Oxford University Press’s Grove Music Online. She served as Secretary of the Society for Ethnomusicology’s board from 2019-2021 and is currently on the board of the Ward Irish Music Archive in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

At the same time, he led a workshop in writing corridos, or Mexican ballads, and performed with the Poet Laureate, Juan Felipe Herrera (on the left in the photo), during Herrera's inaugural reading. Díes is performing the song as an "Archive Challenge," in which artists perform songs from the American Folklife Center Archive. Although the official Day of the Dead or Día de Muertos is tomorrow, in Mexico it's celebrated as a multi-day holiday including November 1. Join the fun at the link below!

https://carpediemarts.org/daily-antidote-of-song ONGOING Note - there will be other song challenges each day of the week, details given on the above link. 22-28 Nov is "Gratitude Week" 10-16 Jan 2022 is "New Year New Friends" week

Animal Transformations: Selkies, Werewolves and Witch-Hares – Dr Larrington
presented by The Viktor Wynd Museum & The Last Tuesday Society

"Join Professor Carolyne Larrington on an exploration of the strange folkloric world of animal transformations. From selkies – seal creatures caught between the pull of the human and maritime worlds – to the shape-shifting werewolves of the Middle Ages. Or the rather less threatening witch-hares, a common transformation beloved of witches – often undertaken, it is said, merely in order to steal milk from a neighbour’s cow... These complex stories speak to us of issues of power and control, and of how we look at the female body and issues of gender, enabling us to think about and question contemporary ideas. ....

"Carolyne also writes on medievalism and folklore, in 2015 publishing The Land of the Green Man. A BBC Radio 4 series based on this was broadcast in 2015 and can be heard here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b06b8vxv. With Dr Fay Hield of the University of Sheffield, she was Co-Investigator on an AHRC-funded research project 'Modern Fairies and Loathly Ladies'. This involves working with creative artists – musicians, poets, painters, photographers – to produce new mediations of tales from British folk traditions about fairies. Also in 2015, Carolyne wrote Winter is Coming: the Medieval World of Game of Thrones, exploring the historical inspiration behind the fantasy phenomenon. You can hear a short talk she gave at the Ashmolean Museum on the book at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjlxMT3Pt1o Her most recent book on Game of Thrones, All Men Must Die: Power and Passion in Game of Thrones was published in January this year."

"The Cornish piskie is arguably one of the most well-known creatures of British folklore. They’re often portrayed as cheeky and mischievous but ultimately harmless. You can find them on charm bracelets and tourist souvenirs when visiting Cornwall. You can even spot them in children’s pop culture like Harry Potter. But Cornwall’s fascination with the Pobel Vean, the little folk, is not always so winsome. There are many types of piskies in Cornwall: those in rags who dance merrily on the moors, those who conjure up storms to protect their treasure, those who dwell in the darkest places underground and those who steal away children. Like the sea itself, that surrounds Cornwall on three sides, the folklore of this land is capricious. Piskies are capable of helping humans and also causing them great harm. So, let us explore the Cornish Pobel Vean, just how harmless are they really?"

PETER JOHNSON Memoir Celebration Saturday, September 18, 2021, 2-4pm (Eastern time, USA)

Join us on Zoom or watch the livestream on our Folk Song Society of Greater Boston page.

Clickable links to zoom and livestream video can be found at https://www.fssgb.org/fssconc.shtml#johnson2021

Please join us as we celebrate the publication of Peter Johnson’s long-awaited memoir, The Laughing Lesson, published by Peter E Randall Publisher. Peter is a long-time member of FSSGB, and is the founder of Living Folk Records and Concerts. We have tried to have this event in person, but circumstances have caused us to reschedule it several times now - so Zoom it is!

The event will feature music - I'll sing a few songs, Lori Fassman will sing a few, and we'll have some other special guests as well. There will be plenty of opportunities to sing along! Peter will do some readings from his book, and that's always so entertaining. It's going to be a fun afternoon, and I hope you can join us.

Peter is a singer, concert promoter, record producer, writer, traveler, prankster, husband, father, and a fixture of the Cambridge music scene for the last fifty years. He is a member of the family that started, and still manages, Fidelity Investments. As the founder of Living Folk Records and Concerts, he introduced a number of traditional musicians from Ireland and the British Isles to North American audiences, thereby shaping the trajectory of this important music genre as it gained a larger place in world music.

"Discover exotic sounds and learn about the history of Chinese music as we take a closer look at several classical Chinese instruments."

A specialist travel agency, "Every Thursday evening, [TanSuo Cultural Travel] offers a free seminar on a certain topic related to Chinese culture.....

"During the first half of our seminar, we'll be discussing the 3,000-year-long history of music in China and the way in which instruments were categorised according to Chinese tradition. This classification system is known as the Bayin (??) or 'Eight Sounds' and is based on the main material used to make the instruments, rather than the way in which the instrument is played.

"Throughout the rest of the seminar, we'll take a closer look at an instrument from each category and listen to clips of them being played. Alongside learning about several lesser-known Chinese instruments, you'll also have the opportunity to engage in a lively discussion at the end of our seminar and share your love of music."

Artists in-conversation – Emeka Ogboh: Song of the Union
Wed, 25 Aug 2021, 17:00 BST

"This online conversation presents a unique opportunity to hear Emeka Ogboh discuss the themes of his festival commission, Song of the Union, with Tessa Giblin, Director of Talbot Rice Gallery and the project’s curator, and related experts, including the Founder and Artistic Director of Savvy Contemporaray and curator of Sonsbeek 2020, Dr. Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung, and the musicologist Morag J Grant. With an introduction by Dr. Katharina von Ruckteschell-Katte, Director Goethe-Institut London.

"Emeka Ogboh’s newly commissioned sound installation, Song of the Union, is sited in Edinburgh’s Burns Monument, and responds to the ongoing theatre surrounding the UK’s departure from the European Union.

"Song of the Union features the recorded voices of citizens from each nation state of the European Union, singing in their mother tongue, ‘Auld Lang Syne’ – a song attributed to the poet Robert Burns (1759-96) and which has come to represent solidarity, friendship and open doors. The resulting polyphonic choir affects a complex interweaving of language, syntax, cadence and rhythm.

"The internationally recognised song of farewell was sung in the European Parliament on the 29 January 2020, marking the moment of Britain’s final withdrawal from the European Union.

"This online panel discussion draws out some of the wider political and historical contexts informing Song of the Union."

The UnNatural History of Cornwall Lecture Series - the story of the Pencarrow Hunt and Black John
presented by The Viktor Wynd Museum & The Last Tuesday Society

Thursday, 9 September 2021. 20:00 – 21:30 BST

"The Unnatural History of Cornwall - curated by Dr.Amy Hale brings stories of the weird and wonderful from Cornwall to a wider audience, with an emphasis on Cornish voices from the past and the present.

"Traditional ballads and the tunes that go with them can be quite separate entities that connect and part company as they travel through time. There is a sense in which both carry the stories and interpretations of the people and communities with which they engage. Indeed, these stories and meanings will often tell us more about these people and their social milieu than the origins of the tradition. During the course of its travels the story of the Pencarrow Hunt and Black John has connected with some interesting characters and provides the perfect study for an 'unnatural history'."

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.

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. Paypal.me/tulip0852

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.

A wonderful concert by Tracy Grammer and Jim Henry from 17 Nov 2020:Tracy Grammer lived in the shadow of Dave Carter. She's come into her own since Dave died, but she still does a lot of Dave Carter songs.
