Subject: First Ever Mudcat Touring Roadshow
From: Naemanson
Date: 31 Dec 00 - 02:23 PM

OK Gang, brainstorming time!

I just got hit by this idea in another thread. I haven't thought it through but wanted to get it out on the table.

Consider, a performer band sometimes leaves on a tour. They expend get amounts of cash and energy going from town to town performing in small venues and building an audience.

Consider, we have members scattered across the world.

Consider, people generally want to hear what and who they are used to hearing.

Idea, the First Ever Mudcat "Touring Roadshow" could be made up of local performers augmented by other members from neighboring towns. The only thing that goes on tour is the name.

Example: The New Hampshire contingent hosts a house concert featuring Barry (Finn and Haddie) and guest starring Kendall (or me). The "tour" then moves on to Boston where Finn & Haddie are the guests at a concert featuring Peg. The tour then moves on to Connecticut where Peg is the guest at a concert featuring ____.

You get the idea.

That's the bare bones of the idea. Can we put some flesh on it?

Absolutely ingenious! I love it!

Among the beauties of it is that there is no time limit (as I understand it). The gigs can happen whenever it is convenient to the performers involved. Club appearances would be possible but not requisite. House concerts would also be among the possibilities. It is also possible that there might be one or more of us who could be "core members" who could lend some continuity to the process.

This is great! Isn't it great? Just great!

Unbridled enthusiasm is fine and appreciated but I started this looking for ideas on how to make this a reality. This thread is intended as a brainstorming platform.

Remember, as I said in the first post, I haven't really thought this through. I'm looking for ideas on how to make it work, some devil's advocates to say it can't work and WHY it can't work (the why is important), and anything else the genius of the 'Cat can come up with.

It seems to me to be not dissimilar to the Adventure that Bill and I had (seems odd to say this now) LAST YEAR. Perhaps it would be helpful for you to know a little about how it was accomplished.

I began by mapping out a tentative route (which was later changed radically) that would pass through places I knew some 'Catters lived. I sent some emails to the people I hoped to visit, asking how they would feel about the possibility of having a 'Catter or three appear on their doorsteps. After receiving some tentative but positive responses, I began planning the route with greater definition. I sent a few more emails to those whom I knew lived along the new route. More positive responses and more adjustments were made to the route. This route/itinerary was posted in a thread along with a probable starting date and a request for more 'Catters to let me know if the route was passing somewhere near their cities. A zillion emails later, I finalized the route and the plans for departure. Then I had a brainstorm about doing a "hit the road" show at a local coffeehouse and made arrangements for that as well.

Among the deciding factors for the direction of the route I chose was the hope of being somewhere near certain areas when festivals such as Old Songs and the Wyoming Cultural Fest were taking place. There were other events such as the monthly meeting of the Oklahoma City Traditional Music Association that we wanted to be around for as well.

The hard part was that I was only able to be away from my job for a certain amount of time. For that reason Bill and I had to absolutely RACE from one stopping point to another in order to complete the route on time. Another part of the planning involved making certain that we usually didn't travel more than three or four hundred miles in any one day. (Ha!) Yet another part was ensuring that there were accommodations of some sort at each potential stop. This involved a multitude of hotel reservations for which I managed to acquire a number of discount deals.

The planning for all of this required a whole lot more effort and time than can easily be imagined. In the two months before we launched the Adventure, I received and sent an average of six PM's and two emails each day. There were countless phone calls (many of them long distance) as well.

I hope that by knowing some of what I did you will get some idea of where to begin. I won't say that I chose the very best methods for accomplishing my goals, but they worked (or Bill and I and various Mudcatters MADE them work!). It is because of the success of the Adventure, that I have every faith that the Roadshow can become a reality.

Naemanson,
I've been trying to figure out why this won't work, but I'm not coming up with anything. The mechanics would be fairly simple -- local musicians would set up a gig in a normal way, except that they would split the evening with a performer from a town not too far away. At some later point, they would go share a gig set up by someone else in a different town. Sounds pretty easy. The folks from out of town get to play a gig without having to set it up, or attract an audience all on their own. Mudcatters get to meet and jam with each other. Sounds great.

OK, here's a potential hurdle to overcome. The world of folk music covers an extremely wide spectrum. Our audience may not go for a bluegrass band. A singer/songwriter audience may not like our music. I have seen split evenings with very different types of music work well, but I have seen some very unfortunate pairings as well. Usually it seems better to have similar but not identical genres next to each other. This might be hard to arrange. Or we could just stick anything together and see what comes up.

It might also be fun to ask the performers who are sharing an evening to work up at least one song together. I could see great possibilities here, both for performers in similar genres and for people who don't have much in common.

This is a wonderful idea. I live in Seattle and perform around the Pacific Northwest. I know of two or three venues I can probably book with a couple of months' notice, and we have a nice guest room in our house.

Any gig that falls within the constraints of schedule and travel, I would be happy to participate in. At various times we could actually travel a bit further. Here is an idea. Why don't we begin planning now for next years FSGW Getaway, and then stay the extra day and do Max's Radio Show. Several of us did the show this year and had a ball. We could make this the highlight annual show. With almost a year's notice we could probably convince some of our out west and overseas Catters to plan and make the trip. Kind of an All MudStar Revue. Waddya think? I will be there and at any others that are practical. If we do a Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Windsor, or Toronto show I could probably be there as well with enough notice.

Sounds fun!

All the best,

Mick

Another idea just hit me. How about doing a series of these things in established folk clubs, regionally? I am thinking of The Ark in Ann Arbor and The Old Town School of Music in Chicago? What other venues are out there like this? Tranzac in Toronto? We might be able to schedule something that is a joint fundraiser in each venue.

I'd be happy to work with John P. in the Seattle area. Our Northwest Folklife Festival on Memorial Day weekend is an occasion that brings a lot of folk musicians together and might be a good time for Mudcatters to get together. I am involved in an open mic and acousstic concert venue in the NW part of Seattle and also know of some possible venues. The Roadshow sounds like a great idea.

Fine idea Naemanson. I just noticed this. Sounds like some good suggestions here.

I'm not sure how typical my situation is but here's how I've approached my work in the last few years.

After years of playing "Commercially viable" gigs in order to earn a living, I decided to play only "folk" clubs and festivals, and suppliment my income with teaching. That worked fine for about five years, but I quickly realized that most of the clubs and festivals were as much in competition for survival dollars as the "commercial" entities, and were focusing almost entirely on singer-songwriters, with little emphasis on the kind of "trad-oriented" pickin' and singing that I do.

I started sending my info (CDs, reviews etc.) to folks who were known to put on "house concerts", and within a short while realized that I was having infinitely more fun with music than I'd ever had before.

You get virtually NO mainstream (or even "folky") publicity, but that has always suited me just fine. What you DO get is appreciative audiences, enough money to survive on, the chance to sell your recordings without a "retail cut" and one hell of a lot of satisfaction.

Heather and I have hosted house concerts in Toronto, and have helped set up larger venues for musicians who can draw larger crowds. Please count us in, and keep brainstorming.

Right now we're trying to make it viable for Matt Watroba and a couple of his musical friends to come to Toronto from Ann Arbour. Gonna bill it as "Michigan Folkies evening". Maybe we can get Mick to take part.

Naemanson,

I have had good luck with art centers. I buy a mailing list from the Southern Arts Federation, then send promos to arts centers and museums which look promising to me. My stuff, like Rick's, is pretty traditional; Arts centers might not go for singer-songwriter concerts, but they seem to like a thematic approach. For example, they would like a concert on seafaring songs, or railroad songs, or War Between the States songs, as they can mount a show of art pieces based on this theme, and then use the concert to draw folks to the show. They like also to feature their state-- i.e. 'Traditional Music of Maryland,' and this sort of thing would work well for using musicians from within a relatively small radius. They like also to use story-tellers and readings by local or regional writers in conjunction with musical performances.

As a variation to the famous Allan C & Bill S road trip of 2000, we may consider a Pied Piper version. That is one where one or more additional people could tag along (in their own vehicle) to the next several stops, then return home. This could be repeated throughout the entire trip. We still may need a solid core of one or two, but even they could drop out enroute and be replaced by another.
The up-side of this is that more 'catters could actively participate. The down-side of course would be a greater burden on the hosts/hostesses. The 'core' members should have priority on free room & board, while the 'followers' should be prepared to pay their own way as necessary.
It goes without saying that there will always be comfortable beds, good food, good friends, and fine music awaiting the travelling minstrels in Ada, OK and at the Oklahoma City Traditional Music Assn. octma

I was going to have a gathering this month, but my money is short due to tuition for my son. Hopefully we can do it next month. BTW, you who have seen my home, should see it frozen. Magnificent. We have plenty of room and plenty of beds, and yes, we have a heated hammock for Max ;-)

I desperately need to hear some Mudcatters and hold them close.

Love, annamill
