Levy’s writing can best be appreciated on his own recordings — including ‘Blueberry Blonde,’ ‘Portuguese Subtitles,’ and ‘Accidental Courage.’ Levy is an extraordinary guitarist, who has been featured on recordings by Norah Jones, Tracy Chapman, Vulfpeck, and legendary New Orleans tunesmith Allen Toussaint. In his monthly Cloud Swing series for Mandolin, Levy will be singing and playing some brand-new songs, along with seasoned pieces from his earlier recordings. He’ll share the stories behind his songs as well, adding more depth and character to the experience. These solo performances will be live-streamed from Levy’s home studio, providing viewers with an up-close-and-personal perspective and hi-fi audio.

Contra Dance (with a bit of English Country Dance) in Newmarket NH ~ 6pm EDT ~ Note from Dave Bateman:

I am going to host a contra  dance (with a touch of English)  for FULLY

VACCINATED dancers Alternating Fridays; 4 & 18 June  at 6PM EDT  at the

Great Island Common in New Castle NH Anticipating to continue on odd Fridays

in July (there are 5 of them).

I suggest that you arrive early with a picnic meal for yourselves &socialize

before the dance starts at 6. The park entrance is off  Wentworth Road,  near the public library.

Please attend only if fully vaccinated .   We will be outdoors, dancing

on the grass to recorded music.

The exact location will be determined in real time, The park is open to the

public so we have to adapt to the available space.  The planned location is

either at the south end on the volleyball space (if they do not put up the

net and the area is not reserved.)  Or in the center at the top of the small

hill.

However, we need to be flexible since our space will not be reserved.

Of course it is weather dependent. Please bring hand sanitizer, folding chairs, a picnic snack for

yourself.  We may be able to use picnic tables if they are not reserved. There is a $10 charge per car for entry into the park ($5 if a senior is driving).

NO charge for the dance; however, I recommend donations to NEFFA, CDSS or

other folk organizations to help support the musicians. It may be cool next to the ocean so dress appropriately.  Do not bring

your dancing shoes Any questions? contact Dave Bateman  at NHECDS@comcast.net

Falcon Ridge Folk Festival

Our ONE DAY OUTDOOR hybrid event will feature 7-8 performers & 1-2 stages, no dance component, dance cannot come back yet. New location in Goshen CT. At the Goshen Fairgrounds. We will not do a FAMILY STAGE or ACTIVITIES FOR KIDS AREA, nothing interactive like that, there will be wonderful food & crafts as always just not as many. If it turns out we CANNOT have an in person audience, the plan is to have the performers do an onsite performance & tape it.

We will not hold our EMERGING ARTIST SHOWCASE either but plan to do an ONLINE SHOWCASE event instead. More info on that coming.

Rather than give you a list of MAYBES, IFS, ANDS or BUTS that could change as we move forward, we'll publish more details on things like tix sales, prices, precautions & procedures as soon as we can. For now, please save the date and stay tuned… https://falconridgefolk.com/
