Subject: Nude hurdy-gurdy calendar
From: John P
Date: 23 Nov 00 - 08:47 AM

I have had a very unusual experience recently -- I was asked to pose for a fundraising calendar for the Over the Water Hurdy-Gurdy Festival near Seattle. They asked several instructors and long-time participants at the festival to pose, wearing nothing but our hurdy-gurdies. The calendar is called "The Men of the Over the Water Hurdy-Gurdy Festival". Twelve naked hurdy-gurdy players. What a great thing.

Their web site is here if anyone wants to order this thing.

I should say that I am not entirely disinterested in helping them sell calendars. I used to be on the board of directors of the non-profit association that produces the festival and served as festival director for two years. Now I'm just friends with -- and nude model for -- the folks that are selling the calendar. I hope this isn't too much of a commercial announcement for this forum. I'm really more amazed at the whole thing than I am interested in selling calendars.

John

Alison,

You could hide behind an accapella and I'd still by the calendar. :-)))) An accordion might be too dangerous.

In Spaw's case probably a Generation standard "G" would be more than adequate. As for me just 16th note would do the job.

Ha ha, I like the looks of the calendar, John, thanks for the link.

So are we going to go for a Mudcat Nudist Camp, too, paying admission to support the Mudcat, of course.

I sold my piano and the fiddle doesn't cover much, either, just like Alison's whistle and harp.

It does seem a pity that only men seem to play the hurdy-gurdy in Seattle.

Well, I for one appreciated the post, John. I had heard about it and this reminded me that I could go order it. And in this instance you can all be thankful that I was unable to make it to the festival, though it's on my _very_ short list.

Anglo, It would be great to see you at the festival. One of the things I like about the calendar is that it is definitely not about youth and beauty. Most of the best pictures display neither. My wife did all the photography, design, and computer work, so I got to see the whole thing in progress.

Margo, do you mean Felicia Dale? If so, yes she knows about the calendar. We had dinner and lots of music with them yesterday. She's on the short list to be in the "Women with Hurdy-Gurdys" calendar that's been proposed for 2002.

CarolC, I've never posed nekkid with an accordion, but I've played one in the buff before. Carefully. Probably not a good idea for a woman. Although posing for a picture would probably be safer than playing it. It looks like the only naked man on the web site is the Leonardo drawing they used for the cover of the calendar. Maybe you should complain.

John

This brings up an idea for thread creep (or a creepy thread). If we had 12 people from mudcat pose nude for a calendar, which 12 would you choose? Or should we have two calendars, one with males, one with females? Then which 24 would you choose?

Freinds from Tubingen(Deutch) recommended St.Chartier, France about 1982. When I arrived the sound of drone pipes and drone vielles (hurdy gurdys) was everywhere. No nude calendars. We had to make do with naked men and women at the water trough washing themselves where we were trying to do washing up. Or you could bathe in the big tub by the village spring. Cold too. Later years shower trailers with curtains 'blowing in the wind'. Ooh La la.

There are a few of these calendars floating around in private collections, but they are, of course, highly-prized possessions and so not likely to be available. Maybe some kind person will post the photos on a website somewhere.

OMG, I've been at Mudcat for 21 years! I started this thread. How time flies when you're living your life.

The local tractor society (I kid you not) once did a similar calendar, featuring a dozen vintage tractors with their owners. The cover showed the landlord of the pub where they used to meet, wearing nothing but a carefully placed bar towel.

The bar towel advertised "London Pride". Any other suggestions? Must be an actual beer or brewer, present or past.
