  • Erynn Marshall Old-Time Fiddle Workshop

    Sun Apr 7th 4:00 EDT - Folk

    Erynn Marshall is an old-time fiddler who lives in Galax, Virginia and is known nationally and beyond for her traditional music. Her tunes are becoming common repertoire in fiddle circles and she is also a sought after teacher. Erynn learned the nuances of Appalachian old-time fiddling from rare recordings and visiting 80-95 year-old southern fiddlers for decades. Still she puts her own spin on the traditional music she plays – sounding authentic, archaic and transportive while playing in a smooth and effortless way. Erynn performs at festivals and music camps around the globe and often tours with her husband - songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Carl Jones. Erynn has won fiddle championships including 1st place fiddle at “Clifftop” (The Appalachian Stringband Festival) and was the first woman to do so. She has recorded six albums and appeared in four films (Voices of Virginia, the Clifftop Experience I’ll Fly Away Home plus the upcoming Never Met a Stranger). Erynn, who is rarely home, recently toured in the US, Canada, Europe, Australia and China. www.dittyville.com

  • Powderbears Presents Sumaia Jackson

    Sat May 4th 10:30 EDT - Folk, Country

    A continuing concert series, organized by retired ski patroller and Powder skier from Bear Valley, Phil Davis. We have presented concerts for over 25 years, and in the past few years, on a much more regular basis, thanks to my friends at the Big Sur and Shasta Fiddle Camps. Our Log Cabin Venue is snowbound during winter months, and is enjoyed by visiting ski groups and families mostly on weekends. So while most of our shows will take place on weeknights, we are also working with other possible venues in Bear Valley, to present artists on Weekends when possible. On April 6 we present Blue Summit at Casa Verde. RSVP for address at 415 779 2093 or rsvpcasaverde@gmail.com , if you plan to attend, or tune in here on Concert Window. Promoter Phil Davis is a retired ski patroller in Bear Valley, California with the nickname “Powderbear” due to the snowy conditions in which he works. Back in 1980, Phil and two friends bought a remote log cabin in the Bear Valley ski area with the intention of turning it into a cross country ski lodge. It wasn’t located near the roads; as Phil says, “I had the snow cat to get guests in, and pack a trail to the cabin.” The lodge was used as a base for a helicopter skiing operation for a few years, and then a new idea emerged. “Some of my Strawberry Music Festival Friends convinced me late one night that we should put together a gig at my Log Cabin. So our first gig was with a band they had at the time, called ‘Horse Opry,’ and it was a benefit for the local school, to send the kids on a field trip to Washington DC that next summer. Then a few years later, I met the Violin Voyager, Kim Angelis and her husband Josef, and we did a couple of house concerts with them in the next several years. It was very occasional at first.” Through a chance one-off concert with Australian band The Waifs, and then the friendly prodding of fiddler Tashina Clarridge, Phil began hosting regular concerts at the Log Cabin. In recent years he has hosted Aoife O’Donovan, The Deadly Gentlemen, Phoebe Hunt, Haas Kowert & Tice, and the 10 String Symphony, among others. Since finding a way to bring satellite internet out to the Log Cabin, Phil has recently entered the new domain of webcasting his shows. “Concert Window,” he says, “is a wonderful project that provides not only promotion of concerts, but also a funding source to help these projects stay alive. Every ticket sold on Concert Window is vote for live music. If there is a space, and you have musicians who are willing to play in your space, go for it!” If you’re interested in visiting the cabin, better pack your skis. According to Phil, “it can be reached both by downhill or cross country skis, but not by car (for 6 months of winter). The roads are packed and groomed in Bear Valley, and our cabin is located on a very private trail, about 5 minutes ski, or walk, from the nearest ‘groomed road.’ For first time non skiing guests, and for musicians and equipment, we can transport you via snowmobile and cargo sled to the cabin. Once you know where it is, it's a pleasant walk, and in moonlight, it is a piece of pure magic.” We appreciate the support of those who know the magic of live music. Please come, or tune in online and contribute what you can to help this project support live music and touring musicians.

  • The Minstrel is a concert series run by the Folk Project, a non-profit folk music and arts organization. We use the facilities of the Morristown Unitarian Fellowship, 21 Normandy Heights Road, Morristown, NJ. We hold shows every Friday, year round, and the second Friday of the month is an open stage/audition night. The music we present is "folk" music in its broadest sense. That is, in addition to traditional American and ethnic "folk" music (in its purist definition), we welcome music of contemporary, primarily acoustic songwriters, and other types of music more folkie in attitude than in content. Shows start at 7:30 PM; dress is casual. We serve coffee, teas, and baked goods. There is no alcohol or tobacco on the premises. Admission is inexpensive; on our regular Friday concerts we ask $10.00 on your way in, plus the rest of what you thought the show was really worth on your way out. This additional amount goes to supplement what we pay the feature performer. All tickets are sold at the door. No advance sales or reservations are necessary.
