Subject: Wyoming/ Montana Sojourn
From: GUEST,Frankie
Date: 15 May 00 - 06:58 PM

I'm taking a trip from Salt Lake City up through western Wyoming and SW Montana at the beginning of June. My path may wander from Henry's Fork out through the Wind river reservation to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone and then on to Livingston, Bozeman and Helena. My main focus will be on hiking and fishing but I'd like to know if any mudcatters could turn me on on to any musical venues (bars, folk clubs, pubs etc.) featuring any kind of trad music (electric blues included) that might lie near my route or anyhing else that may be of interest out that way. Thanks so much.

Frankie

PS I apologise for not addressing you all as a member but I lost my cookie once and every time I try to get it back I get cut off completely. Joe Offer has been helping me to straighten it out.

Hi, Frankie/Frankee--I've been kinda following the Help discussion, and wondered if you would make your trip public. I am in the far SouthEast corner of the state, so it is a long ways for me (8-10 hrs) to Yellowstone, etc. but you are sure welcome to extend your trip through Torrington, and kat/katlaughing is in Casper, right in the center of the state. Unfortunately it has been 20 years since I lived in Cody, so I can't help much there, but Cody is a Tourii Town, so there has to be something! There used to be a chapter of the Wyoming Old Time Fiddlers in Evanston which had Jam Sessions on Sundays, but it has been 13 years since I was there. Reccomend you call each town's Chamber of Commerce and see if they have anything listed.

Hiya, Frankie/ee, please check the thread I started yesterday on the Wyoming Culture Fest, which will be on in Casper, on June 10th, with Sorcha here, as well as Dave, Allan C, and Bill sables from England! We all won't be in the Culture Fest, just going to it, then jamming at my house, as far as I know. If you can make it over you are more than welcome.

If you go up through the Wind River Canyon, through Thermopolis, be sure to go to the free hot springs there for a wonderful soak or swim; it is really incredible. Also, if you go through the Wind Rivers over by Riverton adn Lander, to Jackson and beyond, the Native Americans have redone an old historic hot springs on the Reservation which is really nice. I have a friend who works ont eh tourism board there and knows a lot about teh area; let me knwo if you'd like his email addy...Lander is really up and coming and should have some good events, too.

One of the guys at my ISP belongs to a jazz and blues org and I will ask him where and when they are meeting each month now, too.

take care,

kat

For Montana, Bozeman has an Irish session on Sunday evening and an old - time session on Tuesday evenings. Les Ben can tell you about the bluegrass in Helena. Send messages to personal pages and we can give you times and places.

Here is a great website for regional arts and music info. It's the site of a monthly newspaper (I used to work for this paper) and it covers western and central Montana, northern Idaho, and Spokane, Wa. You can pick up a copy in Gardiner or West Yellowstone when you come through the Yellowstone, or Livingston, Bozeman... or just keep checking this page - click here Lively Times, Arts and Entertainment schedule in Montana.

Helena's bluegrass/folk scene is pretty splintered these days. We used to get together every Thursday, but that hasn't been the case recently. You might want to stop at Piccolo's Music in the small mall across from the Capitol Hill Mall (the only one in town) and find out what's happening when you hit town. Ask for Barb, she's the mopver and shaker there, and can sometimes throw together a jam on a few minutes notice. There is a new Folk/World Music/Blues festival scheduled for four stages in downtown Helena, near the "gulch" on the weekend of June 16, 17, 18. This is its first year and it might be great and it might be god-awful. Hopefully, the first! Our group is scheduled to play for an hour from 1 to 2:00 on Sat. the 17th. You can find some info on it at this site

http://www.downtownhelena.com/

Hope to see you in Helena sometime during that time.

If you're in the Jackson area on a Sunday night, you can always go to the Stagecoach in Wilson for the cowboy and BG and honky-tonk music. My old crony of 30+ years ago, John Sidle, is back in the area and playing there again, I think. Gawdawful racket.

Peter.

Hi, Les. By the way, 'catters, Les and I met recently for the first time face to face at a Cinco de Mayo gathering at a friend's cabin near Helena. It was good to hear his voice, play some music, and sing together.

Hi Alice. Yes, it was fun meeting Alice after two years of Mudcatting and hearing her silvery voice and wide range of songs.

When you go through Jackson/Jackson Hole on your way into the Tetons, you might try picking up the Jackson Hole paper. In summer they have open mike nights several nights a week, and shows at the resorts all through the valley and in to the parks.

I'll be checking this thread, since I'm spending the summer in Jackson Hole and looking for musical connections there.

...not that there's anything wrong with being a guest. Thanks for the response all. I'm going to take another stab at resetting my Frankee cookie and hopefully I'll be able to send some messages.

About halfway between West Yellowstone and Butte, the town of Virginia City has the Music Hall, "a large collection of mechanical musical machines". The museum next door is probably still worth a glance as well (Memorable display of deadly looking weapons from a Tong war, with a note stating that the only fatality came from someone being hit in the head with a shovel.) Neat music boxes, though.

This will get you to the The Jackson Hole Guide which is the newpaper mentioned above....it's got quite a bit and that way you'll know ahead of time what's happenin'...there's another paper up there but I cannot remember the name of it at the moment.

Have fun adn remember to holler if you're anywhere close to Casper.

Thanks for the great links, all. I've got my cookie back and am going to try and figure out how to send some personal messages this weekend. And Guest Mimosa, I'll be spending a few days in the Jackson/Teton area so maybe I'll bump into you at an open mic.

Don't know if the Gibson acoustic factory does tours, but you might contact them. They're in Bozeman Montana.

Gibson is currently hiring acoustic guitar makers if anyone is interested in a job there. Apply in person at 1894 Orville Way, Bozeman.

Thanks for the idea, Danny I might stop in there. I took the online tour at montanagibson.com/tour/tour1a.html. It was pretty extensive but not all the pictures were available when I was there.

Regards, Frankie

Frankie, since I live in Bozeman, I know people who have worked in the Gibson factory. FYI, the pay starts at $7.50 an hour, and there has been a constant turnover of employees. Celebrities do show up once in awhile to try out custom painted guitars.

harpgirl, Hearme does not work with a Macintosh. We've had a couple threads on this. They acknowledge that they are blocking alot of people out, but they are not moving very fast on providing the service for Macs.

Thanks for the info, Alice but I'm not looking for work. I'm looking for just the opposite for a couple of weeks although there was a picture on their website of glue drying, maybe I could be the guy who watches it (smile). Also thanks for the tip on Lively Times, I'll keep my eye out for it.
