I will be part of the many goings-on planned for this multi-faceted multi-day folk orgy presented by the Folk Project. Over the course of the weekend there will be three concerts, about 30 workshops geared both towards musicians and non-musicians, endless jamming, and fellowship. Attendance is limited to 150, and food and lodging is included in the remarkably low price. Single-day tickets are also available (with meals). See website for details
I will be hosting a musical game called "Themes in a Hat" right after Saturday dinner. It's a non-competetive game for people who like to sing, whether or not they can.

I am proud to be part of the 51st year of North America's longest running live folk concert broadcast, originating in Ithaca, N.Y. approximately 32 Sundays a year since l967. Admission is free. If you can't get to the show, you can listen live on WVBR, 93.5 FM, or on the web at WVBR.com. However, the only way to get the show in high def and 3-D is to be at the concert itself. And Phil Shapiro, the show's host throughout its existence is best appreciated in 3-D.
