Nope. The church doesn't get the money. It's just the venue. It's a favorite place to perform for many early music groups (lutenists, madrigal singers, etc.) because the accoustics are so good.

Interesting that this seems to be an entirely anonymous enterprise...no names, no contact except an untraceable e-mail address.

The events and records promoted on that site are all quite admirable and worthy of support, but somehow the whole thing would be a lot more credible if the responsible parties made themselves more visible.

I see my Dad, and a couple of shots of Bob Nelson, and a couple of Julie Sakahara, but I don't know all of them by any means. Photos don't imply endorsement--I think John Ross is correct--if it is a legitimate group it needs a little more transparency regarding the setup.

"Where's Waldo"?
so far we have John Dwyer, Bob Nelson, Julie Sakahara, Frank Ferrel, and John Ashford. that's a good start. how about the others?

"what's the remit of the Society?"
well, it includes Oregon, Washington, BC, and even Alaska - all in the northwest and on the Pacific coast.

"Is it performance-oriented, is it academically minded?"
PNWFS only has a presence on the web at this point. we will promote performances and other events that relate to the folklore of the pacific northwest through traditional and 'in the tradition' songs and music by listing them on our web site. we have no plans to produce any performances ourselves. we do seek to collect folklore of the pnw, such as recordings, historical accounts, pictures, folk songs and other music, and will share this material through our web site. our web site is new, and will evolve and grow in the future to meet those aims. all of this requires little or no money, just the interest of a few people who care about the folklore of the pnw. therefore, we will have no fundraising, membership drives, costly print publications, offices or other facilities to maintain, or egos to inflate. it's all pretty simple. after all, that's what folk music is about isn't it?

Isn't the point of this Folk Music, not who is or isn't Pacific northwest?
This discoussion got off track before it got going.
I would rather see a discussion of the aims and intents of this Pacific Northwest Folk Music Society far more than care who has formed it. I don't think anyone is in it to get rich or sabotage whatever.
Obivously, the PNFMS cares about the music of the region. I suppose if someone comes in and wants to talk about a song about an area in New York State, that probably wouldn't fit, but if someone comes in with a song from British Columbia or Alaska or Idaho, I suspect that would be acceptable.
Somehow there seems to have been a lot of hostility raised by this and I don't get it.

Fortunately, the Cherokee Chief John Ross didn't hold the patent on the name.

I don't think there is hostility, but healthy skepticism. This looks like it is hosted in the extremely tenuous and volatile venue of someone's home Internet account. And a photo is just that--a photo. A nice glance back at people who may have established a group decades ago before the Internet was even an idea, many of whom are moved on or deceased. So that doesn't work as a form of validation.

If there is an organized group called the Pacific Northwest Folklore Society, separate from the various Seattle Folklore and Song Circle groups, it needs to make itself more distinctly separate and needs a more durable foundation than what may be a hobby for someone with an Internet account. This isn't meant to damn with faint praise or question the intent of whoever PNW folkie is (who is that, anyway? Someone I know? Pardon the query if everyone else knows but me.) Reviving an older but now defunct group may be a pleasant look back, but is there work that this group needs to do that someone else isn't already doing?

Excuse me? There have been a lot of people using my name (or me theirs) over the last two or three hundred years. But I come by it as honestly as any of them: the John Ross after whom the Ross Ice Shelf was named, or the one who was married to Betsy Ross the flag maker, or the journalist who writes about Mexican politics, let alone the leader of the Cherokees, to name just a few.

And considering that I have been active in the folk music communities of the Pacific Northwest for about 35 years, I don't understand why Martin Ryan should think my interest should be worthy of any comment. What the @#$%! are you talking about, Mr. Ryan?

As for the PNW Folklore Society, Maggie D and I are on the same page. Why the mystery? Why not identify the people behind the web site, and any other projects the group is planning or supporting? As others have noted in this thread, there just isn't enough information on the web site to know whether or not to take it seriously.

"Isn't the point of this Folk Music, not who is or isn't Pacific northwest?"

Yes, that's what we think. There are many valid and serious web sites without an individual's name attached. You are right, this is from a home computer - why spend a lot of money on a commercial site when we can do it for free? Does that give it less validity? We don't think so. As to who we are - some of us were founding members of the PNWFS back in 1953, others are more recent to the folk music scene here.

There are other organizations here involved in folk music here. However, they have gravitated to the singer-songwriter genre, away from their traditional roots. Now that may not be bad - there are some very talented musicians coming here to sing the songs they have written just yesterday or perhaps a year or two ago, but that's not the traditional music we're trying to promote and preserve. There are local folk musicians from this area, some passed on, some aging (aren't we all), whose music will soon be forgotten if there isn't a group to keep it alive and to grow the tradition.

We would like to be responsive to those who visit our web site. At this point we can list concerts and other events, and recording, which relate to the musical traditions and folklore of the Pacicific Northwest. We would like to expand this in the future to posting some songs unique to the PNW, perhaps with a few mp3 files (our storage capicity is not that large yet); and perhaps some historical accounts of the folk musci scene in the PNW. And we will try to answer all enquires through our email address (I am still waiting to receive an answer to my email directed several weeks ago to the info@ addy of another organization's large impressive web site).

In short, I think our web site and organization will be validated in time over what we do, rather than who we are.

And I object to a certain ill-tempered remark ("What the @#$%! are you talking about, Mr. Ryan") to a good gentleman and friend of mine in Ireland. As Emjay said, "Somehow there seems to have been a lot of hostility raised by this and I don't get it." We're obviously not in it to get rich (we're not selling anything), nor to sabotage anyone's organization or to inflate our own egos.

Peace

As someone who has organized folk singing events in the Pacific Northwest--mostly in the Portland area--for over 25 years, let me add my two cents.

I share some of the above-stated skepticism, but would like to welcome and encourage whoever you are. The more people involved in this tenuous movement, the better.

So, go for it. Make some good stuff happen. You have my support.

But I just can't help being more than a little curious as to why you are so reticent about revealing who you are. I guess, unfortunately, that has become an issue. Too bad. It is a side issue, I suppose.

At any rate, I'd love to see your energy blossom into some good things for the folk singing movement.

Cheers,

David

Why all of the secrecy? It doesn't bode well for the "organization" if you are simply putting up a few pages and historic images, not saying who is behind it, and hinting at greater things. There are established places that will host pages for small groups, there are free sites that will host pages for small groups. Having something that is not in the hands of a single individual but has some group oversight would be a good start. Who else is involved, or are you using a royal "We?"

I do think we need a forum specifically for PNW...and here is a scoop..I think there is going to be a maritime workshop/concert in Ilwaco on October 27. Put on by Parks Department. Cape Disappointment Lighthouse perhaps? I am excited it will be on this side of the river. I think a concert will be in Maritime Museum in Astoria in the evening though.

Things like this..the camps (don't forget Sunnycamp Sept. 28 to 30..I am not really announcing it too much this year..partially lack of time and partially it is winding down as this is the last year but come for any period of time and we will charge accordingly but only $55 for whole weekend).

I also like the idea of making lyrics and perhaps downloads?? available. I have a bunch of my songs on a CD..just me singing into a mike at KBOO..nothing to listen to partiuclary other than to get the tunes..but you could put stuff like that up there...there is lots of stuff from folklife workshops etc. about PNW. Jon P. has collected quite a bit I believe as have others from various camps etc.   mg

These posters really bring back some memories of what a vibrant and exciting place Seattle was in the 50's and 60's. Starting with the sponsorship of the Pacific Northwest Folklore Society in 1953, we had everyone who was anyone come through town: Pete Seeger, Sonny Terry, Guy Carawan, Walt Robertson, Bob Gobson, Bob Camp, Jesse Fuller, Roy Guest, on and on!

Could you provide a mention of something at Ft. Columbia on October 27 (This is in Chinook, not Ilwaco as previously stated). A day of maritime music, led by Hank Cramer and friends. Various workshops on sea shanties, maritime history, etc. In the evening at 7:30 there will be a concert in the Maritime Museum in Astoria. At least the Ft. Columbia day event ( approximately 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.) will be free. For more information contact mgarvey@wsu.edu.
