Ummm...has anyone taken a good look, I mean a REALLY GOOD LOOK at the post on this thread from "GUEST-Carol's Friend Don"???

The guy is either a comedic genius or a total lunatic.

Or both.

I hope he joins Mudcat.

Don..."Orillia" is indeed a codename. It is a codename for things so deep, dark, and twisted that it would turn your guts inside out to know about it. I suggest you stick to pounding the pavement and harassing the locals, and not mess around with the Great White North. We know how to put you on ice up here, bucko!

For anyone who doesn't know Rick and his music I will post a version of my review of his fall concert in Orillia. I orginally wrote the review for mudcat. This version was edited for the Orillia Folk Society newsletter.

Rick Fielding Plays Crop Circle Country Friday night, September 15th, Rick Fielding delivered an astounding performance at Orillia's fair grounds. The concert was a Mariposa Festival volunteer thank you party combined with an Orillia Folks Society monthly concert. One of the organizers, Ronda, told me that she had worried that the room might be too cold but Rick rapidly warmed up both the room and the audience.

He started out with a song about the Titanic. Waves of 12 string notes washed out over the audience. It was a warm wave that may have lifted the wreck a few feet off the Atlantic floor. No one ran for lifeboats. No one drowned. Instead folks started to sing along. Rick made everyone feel comfortable and happy, like we were all friends who had known him for years. We made up a fair size crowd and probably over ninety percent of us sang along to many of his songs. We even sang on the ones where we didn't have a clue about the words or the tune. Perhaps we shouldn't have but Rick's music, rhythms, enthusiasm and warmth were all highly contagious

Rick seemed to be enjoying himself too. He shared many stories about his childhood, his life (even his life as a drywaller) and his songs. He played song that we've known for years like San Francisco Bay Blues, tunes that only serious traditionalists would know and songs that he's written from a heart drenched with traditional music echoes.

Rick played amazing guitar. Members of the Orillia Folk Society who were sitting close to me hooted and hollered all night long. Mariposa people from Toronto and elsewhere were also struck with spontaneous outbursts. These flare-ups started before any of us had time to do any serious drinking, so it was from the heart, not from the bottle.

Rick was damn good. Each time he started one of his astonishing guitar techniques the audience would howl and roar. I loved that twelve-string sound that he gets. And what a range of styles and music - Travis picking, walking chords with bass and melody runs, rapidly changing chords patterns, rhythmic finger patterns on guitars and autoharp that you would only expect from a great drummer beating on her snare, wild arpeggios with fingerpicks and flatpicks. Even when he strummed Rick played intricate chord patterns like a boom on the bass followed by a chuga-chuga-chum on the high strings. Now we know why half the people in southern Ontario are taking guitar lessons at Fielding's or wish they were.

The Onomotapeia Blues

(E chord)
Woogie boogie...onomotapeia!

(B7 chord)

Woogie boogie...onomotapeia!

Repeat above verse endlessly, Bo Diddley style, and punctuate with hackneyed harmonica breaks, the occasional inarticulate shriek, and a bunch of totally predictable guitar riffs. Then do it again a few times.

Friday night at the local blues bar.

Somebody get me a pistol, please...

Your plants are doing well, in fact better than when you were taking care of them (kind of like your car).

The Pharmacy tore out the wall between it and the old Reunion bar that became the Ultraprise part of Huskey Labs before the dot-coms went south. They replaced the bar and did a sort of Pharmacy extention into the new area (i.e. excellent food at the upper end of the price range). The musical groups playing so far are somewhat pedestrian, but I hope to see Sharon playing there soon.

(For those who don't know, Sharon Hall is regarded by most musicians in the DC area to be the Best Second Fiddle on the Planet - we don't know who first is, but if she backs 'em up, she makes 'em sound better.)

Still no sign of your accordion; if you find out a prospective delivery date, let me know so I can leave appropriate death threats for the Fed Ex man. (As in "Don't leave it here... I know it looks like a Fed Ex cardboard box, but it smells like an accordion.)

The lesbian next door just moved out, so you won't have to listen to Lezzie Lust through the bathroom vents anymore. You notice they never say "Oh, you're so biggggg" no matter what they're doing. Go figure...maybe size doesn't matter... to a lesbian.

Your Dad called your answering machine and told it that he was back from getting married. Your machine is louder than God, whose name I invoked when it came on, through your wall, to the head of my bed. I left it turned up for a while, so your plants would have something to listen to, but then they started to die back, and I turned it down. You can feel good that they don't miss you 'cause they didn't know you were gone...(damn, that sounds like a Country and Western tag line...).

See you when you get your fillia of Orillia...

Hey, Don... What car?

Could you scope out whoever moves in next to me so I can get an idea of what I'll be dealing with when I come back?

It's good to hear you're not doing the same thing to my dear little planties that you did to my palm tree. I still miss that poor bastard.

Hi, Carol - The Saturday gig was tough, because I totally did not feel like doing it. Sometimes I just don't want to play, but it was scheduled 3 months ago, so I dragged myself down there and did it. Apparently, according to several people I did a good job anyway, despite my lousy mood. I guess I can still pull the rabbit out of the hat when I have to. All in all it was an okay gig, I suppose, and I got to see Clayton Denwood play his stuff and it was very good. Jen & Eric were also excellent, as always.

I am more looking forward to going to see Rick Fielding in Newmarket this coming Friday. I'd rather listen than play right now.

So glad you put the "l" in "planties". You had me stunned for a minute.

The Scottish dance was a long way to go (Greenbelt, just down from your folks) but well worth the trouble. That Scottish dancing is just incredible; sort of corps de ballet in kilts and long dresses. I think I'm the first person to ever show up at an Open Scottish Band with a long neck and a 6-string banjo, prepared to play Strathspeys. I thought it worked well and frankly got a lot of compliments and an invitation to play the second half in the front row.

It was at this point we brought it all home to these folks. They were playing a dance set called the Reel of the 51st Highland Division, and broke into a piece called the Drunken Piper. Carol, it was like putting the minor sections of Groweling Old Man, Grumbling Old Woman together with Kitchen Maid. I caught on immediately and went to the long neck. Steve Hickman and I had a ball, "playing through" and the Scots fiddlers (about 10, from the local Scottish Fiddle Club) held up their end of the bargain. We had two recalls and only stopped when the dance master pointed out to the crowd that they wouldn't get to the waltzes if we didn't move on. Liz said later that she'd never heard an arrangement like that. I told her to call it "The Reel of the 51st Highland Division Supported in the Assualt By The 3rd Marines". I believe Liz has had her funny bone surgically removed...

Anyhow, I've got another clogging piece for Kim and Jan, and Rock Candy. Got to go, let me know about the delivery date for the accordion.

Hi Little Hawk, I'm glad to hear your gig last Saturday went ok despite your mood. Are we still on for the Newmarket thing tomorrow?

Don, glad to hear the Scottish thing went so well. I got a message from Pam. She said Mario is still waiting for the back strap for my accordion. Don't know what to say about an arrival date. I may get home before it does.

Carol

Well, not only did I get to meet Rick Fielding, but also Duckboots!

The first set was by a few nice young people, a cool drum, and two guitars. There was some AWESOME classical guitar, including a version of "Canon in D" that is now my absolute favorite! (It wasn't boring... like most of the versions I've heard.) A beautiful, jazzed-up "Autumn Leaves" that was great, too.

Hawk disappeared into the art gallery for a while, and then Larry the Luthier came and told me that Hawk was plotting something with harmonica and mandolin. I wondered what Hawk was going to be doing with a mandolin, as he only knows three chords on that instrument, but thankfully, Rick was the one who played the mandolin. Very well, too. Is there any stringed instrument that Rick can't play? Wow!

Rick played a very good, and entertaining set, but I'll let someone who knows more about folk music than I do report on that.

Nice to meet both Rick and Heather, though, and we'll be seeing you again!
