"Prisoners Of Their Hairdos" and "Victim/Volunteer" -- 30 year old video just surfaced -- Sally, Meg, Chris
Thanks to an eagle-eyed archivist at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, this lost video just surfaced -- 30 years ago at The Philly Folk Festival I invited Megon McDonough and Sally Fingerett to join me onstage for a couple of songs.
"Prisoners Of Their Hairdos" and "Victim Volunteer" at the 1990 Philly Folk Festival
The following year we released our first "Four Bitchin' Babes" CD with the 4th being Patty Larkin.
For the curious, Megon and I will be on your computer screen this Sunday as part of the Greenwich Village Folk Festival, along with Liz Queler, The Don Juans (Tom Paxton's back-up dudes), Ellis Paul, John McCutcheon, Sophie Buskin, and others from 7 PM - 10 PM Eastern on Sunday, December 6th here: https://greenwichvillagefolkfestival.org
- For decades Phil's sister Sonny Ochs has hosted these shows across the country -- tonight it's all LIVE and FREE on your screen
- We didn't know what songs we'd hear, and looking back on this, it's wonderful -- I list who plays when so you can skip to your favorites
- My live Hurdy Gurdy concert has been moved from indoors to online -- I'm joined by a dozen singer/songwriters each doing 2 songs -- from 7 PM to 10 PM Eastern
- It begins with a funny song for our times, "Stress" by Jim Infantino, ends with Kate Taylor's lovely, "I've Got A Message"
- A strong lineup for top to bottom -- the incomparable Jim Infantino opens, Kate closes, and an embarrassment of riches in between
- Columnist Jennifer Finney Boylan was inspired by the song to write about her best summer -- what was yours?
- The PFF asked me to help MC, and to do a 15-20 min minute set, which is the exact length of this one song, which is based on something that really happened
- Starting with Brooks Williams in Cambridge, UK --- closing with B&B in the US -- next month Bob Lind is headliner (yes, The Elusive Butterfly Of Love guy)
- Wonderful food (dining room opens at 5:30) -- spectacular desserts -- LIVE entertainment -- Tickets $25 in advance, $30 at the door.
- Believe it or not, when I wrote this song inspired by the 2009 Scripps Spelling Bee, I SPELT TWO WORDS WRONG! Finally I've made up for it.
- Jimmy Webb wrote the perfect song for the launch back in 1978, and here Michael Feinstein sings it.
