Dave, We were just in Manitowoc for a week---staying with Crol's brother and his wife. They came down here to Peru and drove us and my chair to and fro. And for 3 days I sat and schmoozed with Fritz and Mary in their "Golden Ring Music And Folklore Center!" What a treat it was now that I'm not around the music to any extent. Check with Fritz; we might be up to doing it again next year.

Kendall, I too remember that workshop well. Sorry for stealing so many of your tales and jokes!

Jean, I think I first met you in either Rockford, Illinois or maybe La Crosse, Wisconsin---the Great River Folk Festival. (Maybe a time it rained and the festival was brought indoors.) You did the opening concert I seem to trecall!?

Or was it at the Quiet Knight folk club in Chicago---in the 1970s?
Who knows? I think I did open for you there. Richard Hading's place.

Also on the bill for that banefit for Michael Cooney was Steve Goodman, Cindy Mangsen, and a guy named Pete Seeger. Just us 4.

Art

You think this stuff is good? Well, it sure as hell is, but you should try sharing the stage with this guy. We did a humor workshop at a Hartford folk festival many years ago, and it is still a high point in my life. Thanks for being who you are my friend.

Wow I haven't been to this forum in ages... just tonight I had a night off from the normal stuff picked up the guitar played one of my favorite songs of Utah Phillips, I remember lovin you, and then tried my best to remember Nevada Jane, and after my wife sang three lines, then I was back into it... then did an old stand by that I learned from you Art.. (Or at least that tab book I bought from Fritz) Railroad Blues and Nine Pound Hammer... because of you I can do a train whistle... one more time....

Why I'm here and why I had to search MudCat... Fritz Shuler did a song that went, "I'll be there in the morning if I will, I'll be there if I won't get killed...." "...My baby lives in a ____, but it's a brickhouse just the same..." I remember the chorus and one verse...

What song was that?

btw... I maintain a songwriting blog at http://www.myspace.com/davezeman

I suppose I can always count on Kat for a spirit boost if I need one. ;-)
Kat, I'm glad you like some of the old work I did.

Bruce, thanks for putting this here where any interested in it can find it. On we go.

You're still the best, Art! And I still remember when we first met, at a coffeehouse in...was it Minnesota? I was really impressed that you were on the bill with me...and how much we laughed when you told the turtle drive story...now you're gonna say that my memory is all mixed up, and it probably is- but the memory's still a good one. Thanks          Jean

A few weeks ago I recorded off the air part of a set Art Thieme performed on November 4, 1979 at a benefit for Michael Cooney at Stages Music Hall in Chicago. Here's a 13.5 minute MP3 -- not very well recorded, I'm afraid -- consisting of:
The Kansas Cyclone / Shady Grove (trad)
Various song parodies
Cheyenne Indian Story
Sioux Indians (trad)
Down By The Embarras (Stracke)
The Sioux Indians performance is the one included on the marvelous collection of Art's live performances titled Chicago Town & Points West: Folk-Legacy CD-135, available here .
