From: Mrs.Duck

I have just returned from a session at the Jug where I was privileged to listen to the master of the new CD by Bill Sables, Sam Pirt and Ian Stephenson. The CD which will be out in the next few weeks includes great instrumental tracks such as Napoleon Crossing the Rhine and a lovely Danish waltz plus some cracking songs sung by Bill including Cockfight (definitely a touch of Eastern promise in the backing on that one) and my personal favourite, Whitby Fisherman, written by Bill.
The trio will be heading for the US on June 1st and touring the East coast for two weeks so if anyone wants to contact Bill with a view to booking them get in quick 'cos they are well worth going to see! Anywhere between Virginia and Maine they'll try to fit you in!

I have put in an order for the first CD - if you get the chance to see them while they are across the pond, take it - you wont be disappointed.

Almost thread creep - I am about to start another thread related to what happened to Eric the Viking and me on the way home from the Jug last night..........bizzare!

If it wasn't Sam Pirt who you met at Whitby it would probably be Sam's father Graham Pirt. Sam plays piano accordian with fingers which move like greased lightning, Graham sings with a voice like velvet. Both are well worth meeting!

Hi Ye'all, Thanks for the postings. I will try to clear up what is happening.
Sam Pirt is one of the best accordion players in the UK at the moment, he has won numerous competitions for accordeon playing as well as Young Folk Musician Award for B.B.C. Radio 2. He has played at various festivals including Cambridge UK, Whitby UK, Tonder Denmark, and Flaun Sweden. He presently plays with the award winning band "422" and with his Dad Graham Pirt of "Cockersdale". I first met Sam when he was 15 and he played with my ceilidh band "Shananikins" for 5 years , he is now just 21 years old. He plays tunes from England, Scotland, Ireland, Spain, Scanainavia, and French Canadian regions and he uses syncopated rythms and impossible bass lines which mesmerise his audiences.
Ian Stephenson is only 18 years old but he plays guitar like he has been playing for 50 years, he is also very,very good on melodeon. Ian also plays with "422" so has played the festivals the same as Sam with the addition of playing in the Gulf States last year representing the UK.
Most of you know who I am but for those who don't I have been playing folk since the early 60s and have done clubs, concerts, radio, TV, and festivals in three continents. I play Tenor Banjo, Mandola, Mandolin, Melodeon, and Guitar and I also sing with the trio. Most of my songs are trad from my native Tyneside but there are a scattering of songs from Scotland, England, Ireland and the USA.
Sam and Ian have never been to the USA and asked if there was any chance of getting a few bookings in June this year, we can only come between June 1st and June 14th because of already booked festivals in the UK, and we would like to cover the costs of the flights and car rental. I have sent out a few tentative enquiries to Maine, New Hampshire, Pensylvania, New York, but as yet have no positive dates (Dani, North Carolina and Ohio could be in if we could get bookings somewhere) We need to know weather to fly to Boston or Washington, or New York so if any one could organise a house concert we would be very grateful.
We have recorded a new CD as Mrs. Duck said at ther start of this thread and so far, after hearing the first mixings, we are very pleased with it. It will probably be called "Bridging the Gap" to try to bring over the idea of the age gap between Sam, Ian and Myself and also the Atlantic Gap between the UK and the USA in trad music.
If anyone can help we would be most gratefull I am sorry it is short notice. You can Email me at billsables@netscapeonline.co.uk or send me a PM via mudcat. Thanks again.
Bill

I would absolutely LOVE to have them come to a session! I'm also quite sure Chris would enjoy meeting them and vice versa.

I wish I were better connected regarding finding them a gig. The Press Room was once a likely venue, but they seem to book local alternative rock groups these days, and ownership changed hands a few years ago. Still, the place is great and they host our sessions.

Joy, I don't know if you've heard Bill's song, but it's a good 'un. You know - the sort of song you hear, and your first reaction is "why haven't I heard that before now?"

Its great to see such a good responce. I am really looking forward to coming over and playing with all you catters accross the sea in the US!!

Also I must also mention something that you may also be interested to know.... We can also offer to do workshops when we are in the US. Bill can do Tenor banjo, Mandola etc. Ian can do Melodion and Guitar (in DADGAD & Standard) and I can do Piano accordion and the odd bit of French Canadian Foot Percussion if I am pushed into it. At beginner, Intermediate and advanced.

I look forward to meeting you all.

OK, I think we can do this. If you flew into Boston on Thursday the 30th you could do the Portsmouth (New Hamster) session on Friday, a house concert in Freeport (Maine) on Saturday and the rest of your tour from there. The only problem I foresee is jet lag.

Now, we need to arrange accomodations. C'mon guys, let's get together on this. I have a futon and two foam pads so I could give them sleeping room but it wouldn't be as comfortable as real beds. Who has room for them?

Bill, do you mind if you get slit up between houses? I don't expect you would but we can keep your costs down if we can keep you out of motels and such.

We once had a performer at the Chocolate Church that used that term. He was up from NH but originally from California. As he described it he was sitting in his home on the West Coast contemplating the death of his beloved pet. He mused, "Now I need a new hamster." Next thing he knew, there he was in a new state. I've called it New Hamster ever since.

He was also the one who asked what was worshipped in the Chocolate Church. He thought it might be the God Iva.

The first time I heard "New Hampster," it was from a DJ on a local radio station in the early 80s. He's host of Hollywood Squares now.

The host for the house concert has pulled out. I am now looking for an alternative location for a concert in Maine on June 2. I expect it will be at the Chocolate Church in the Curtis Room unless we get more than 100 people to reserve seats.

There have been times and dates bantered around and so I'm not really sure of our guys itinerary at all. June 12th is Tuesday and you know, Bill, you, Sam and Ian are welcome any time in my home. I have written to Bill suggesting he come to my place on June 9th and stay till they have to leave. We could drive over to West Chester on Tuesday, or Wednesday and we could have a big get-together the weekend of the 9th. I'm wait to hear before I put out a thread. Just let me know.

Wow! Annamill, you will have a house full. You probably won't have room on your floor or in your driveway for one more on the 11th.

Since I am on my way to Philadelphia for the 12th and I will be in Mystic on the 10th I thought I might line up some visiting time with someone.

Or I could sponge off... er.. visit Mary in New York.

Bill, at one point you suggested you finish the tour in Keene, since it's so close to Boston. Here's what I can offer you:
Sunday, June 3, an evening concert in Keene, coffeehouse style with donations at the door.
AND/OR
June 12 or 13 a gig at my school that will pay well.
I don't want to be selfish but you are welcome to do both gigs!
I'm at school so don't have your email address. Let me know what you want to do!

Rum, bum & baccy, Kendall, the usual. I believe they are making a film about voyage of the Mignonette, which was the last (known) case of cannibalism at sea that was put through the courts. The reason I raise the point is that she sailed from Tollesbury, in Essex, where the good ship Skipjack is berthed. Talk about thread drift!
