Durst, James WORK O' THE WEAVERS: Celebrating America's Pioneering Folk Quartet History,
Multicultural- Other,
WORK O' THE WEAVERS celebrates Pete Seeger's lifetime legacy, Lee Hays' (1914-1981) Centenary & The WEAVERS' inestimable contribution to our collective musical consciousness. Beginning in 1950 with their 2-sided hit, Tzena Tzena & Goodnight Irene, The WEAVERS (Pete Seeger, Lee Hays, Ronnie Gilbert & Fred Hellerman) ignited popular interest in folk music. With a freshness & exuberance not heard before, they enjoyed surprising success until being caught up in the Cold War anti-communist witchhunts of McCarthyism and HUAC, blacklisted & driven from the stage in 1952 at the height of their popularity. Their triumphant 1955 Carnegie Hall reunion concert & Vanguard LP of the event gave heart to a generation, kindling the 'folk boom' of the '50s & '60s, providing a foundation upon which virtually every subsequent folksinger would build. WORK O' THE WEAVERS recalls their timely story & timeless songs. Faithful to the Weavers' original arrangements, WORK O' THE WEAVERS' (James Durst, David Bernz, Martha Sandefer & Mark Murphy) includes the beloved songs, as well as some the Weavers might be singing today. An edifying narrative interweaves throughout, supported by PowerPoint visuals. More than a tribute, it's an affectionate homáge. Rousing, refreshing & relevant!
$1001- $3000

Jones, Dean Songwriting with the Fleas Literature- Creative Writing,
Dog on Fleas will begin the program by playing some of their original songs and talking about the writing process for the songs. Band members will then divide the audience up into groups and then help the groups write songs. The songwriting will be guerilla-style quick, and will hopefully let audience members take home a template for how to write a song, and most importantly access an outlet for self-expression. The band will then perform the songs with help from audience members. Dog on Fleas will end the program with more of their own music.

Hall, Rebecca Hungrytown in Concert Music
'Musically, Hungrytown is a rare breed. In this age of fusion, [Rebecca] Hall and [Ken] Anderson prefer to reverse-engineer modern folk. . .writing brand-new ballads that sound straight out of the '30s. Standing face to face, so close that their guitars almost touch, they sing into the same mic, evoking scenes from the glory days of the Grand Ole Opry.' Justin Shatwell - Yankee Magazine (November/December 2008) Hall & Anderson have created a program specifically tailored to libraries and their patrons. Unique to this presentation is a focus on the Appalachian and Celtic roots of their songwriting, with the performance of traditional songs relevant to the development of their style. Instrumentaion consists of guitar, bass and harmonica.
