From: TinkerandCrab
Date: 30 Jan 06 - 03:53 PM

Date: Saturday, February 4, 2006
Time: 7:30 & 9:00 PM
Place: The Tavern at Historic Richmond Town, in Staten Island.   Click for map & directions
How much: $15 per person.

Join us in the unique atmosphere of the candlelit, woodstove-heated, 19th century tavern in Historic Richmond Town and hear Songs of the Sea & Taverns, aka "The Richmond Tavernacle Choir", featuring… drumroll….

DAVE KLEIMAN -- originator of the chantey program at South Street Seaport Museum and the founder of the Traditional Music of the Sea Festival at the Mystic Seaport Museum. His stories, songs, humor and instruments transport us to the days of wooden ships and iron men.

COMPASS ROGUES (Frank Woerner, Jan Christiansen, Bob Conroy and Greg Bullough) -- a quartet steeped in the lore and love of the sea, accompanied by button accordion, concertina, guitar and banjo.

NEXTRADITION (Alison Kelley & Ken Schatz) -- a duo who perform songs with driving rhythms and roaring choruses!

HEATHER WOOD -- a seminal player in the Anglo-American folk revival and an original member of the British a capella group The Young Tradition.

…And whomever else we can get to come on out to Staten Island!

Please call (718) 351-1611 x 281 for information.

cheers, Catherine

Is this a one-time event or will there be similar events planned?

Sounds like a great place to hold it and a great gang for breaking in a new place.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Barry: Thanks for the endorsement! Indeed, these folks are hecka-talented... this is my favorite show of our whole four-month Tavern season.

Charley: We have shows every Saturday night at the Tavern from January through April. The acts vary... last week was the Johnson Girls (one of whom ---Alison Kelley---will be performing with the crew this Saturday), and next week is Linda Russell. You should definitely check us out... we always have a fun time!

I always thought that Stuart Frank originated the Sea Music festival at Mystic Seaport. At least that's what he's always told me!

Given that there are several million people in the NYC area, it would be a comfort if at least a dozen of them were interested in sea music and posted on this thread. Well, maybe they're down at the Seamen's Church singing wonderful old sea songs, and carrying on to the extent that they haven't the energy to post.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble, who may check you out in April

Since I am one of several hundred thousand people in the world who DON'T live anywhere near New York, are there any recordings available by any of these fine folks, so I can enjoy the experience in a time/space separated manner?

Well, the NexTradition (Ken and Alison) have a fine CD, called, oddly enough, The NexTradition, which is available through Camsco or Folk-Legacy.

There are a number of recordings by The Young Tradition, of which Heather Wood was a member, and these are also available from Camsco, though they are not primarily sea music. Heather was also a member of Poor Old Horse, which did do a lot of sea music, and whose CD is available through Camsco or Folk-Legacy.

Not sure about the others.

David Kleiman appears with his group, Watersign, on their album.
Frank Woerner appears on the various X-Seaman's Institute albums.
Jan Christensen appears both in Geoff Kaufman's albums and with the Hudson River Sloop Singers in albums available through Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, 112 Market Street, Poughkeepsie, NY.

Along with the above mentioned (Hi Nancy) you can also hear Alison (of the NexTradition), who's also with the Johnson Girls on any of their CD's

David Klieman you can hear on a CD titled Watersign with his group Watersign. I sure you can hear David elsewhere but I don't know where at the moment.

Bob Conray you can hear with Dan Milner (Liam's Brother) on the CD's "Irish in America" & "Irish Ballads & Songs of the Sea" (Frank Woerner & Jan Christensen are part of the chours). Both on Folk-Legacy & also available at Camsco

I think Compass Rouges has a CD but maybe someone else should say for sure.

If you google Heather Wood, you'll come up with a world of info (all good & interesting). I think she has a web site, you can probably find out there where she's been recorded (long list I'm sure)

Thank you thank you thank you, everyone who provided info on where to get the recordings of these great artists.

I'll just add that one of David Kleiman's other outfits is called "Omnia", and they performed at the Tavern this year. Also, another of Bob Conroy's bands is the wonderful "Stout", and they will be performing at the Tavern in April. I know they have recorded several CDs, and they do a bunch of maritime music.

looking forward to tonight,
Catherine

Sounds like a great night. Wish I could be there.

I must agree with Catherine's comment on 'Stout'. Their latest CD, 'Don't you wish you'd been there', is excellent.
