I am just re-reading this thread of Sept. 13, 2007 - Pacific NW Folklore Society
It's hilarious - Maggie being paranoid about who's behind it (sorry Maggie)
John Ross cussing out my Irish friend, MartinRyan, for using his name in vain
Mary Garvey saying it's a great idea, regardless of who they are
etc. etc. it's just a barrel of laughs
It really got everyone's attention!
what's really interesting is to see how far we've come,
how we've evolved, even beyond our first expectations
I don't think any of us could have predicted it.
What a Hoot!!

We've hosted some great folksingers from out of town -
Jeff Warner, Jed Marum, Brian Peters, Kate Power & Steve Einhorn,
Steve Gillette & Cindy Mangsen, Joe Hickerson, Charley Groth ...
as well as local folks - Alice Stuart, the Canote Brothers, Ginney Riley,
Pint & Dale, Tania Opland & Mike Freeman, and many, many others.
posted over 45 Pacific NW songs with lyrics and mp3 recordings
lots of historical information about PNW folklore,
expanded into Everett with Bob "Deckman" Nelson, and more.

Now we need to think about who's going to carry this on
when we can't do it any more. Any volunteers?
We'd like to have some younger people involved,
grow the tradition, expand the musical genre's,
but still keep it a grass-roots, low-budget,
below-the-radar organization.
Any ideas?

Cheers, S. in Seattle
along with Bob "Deckman" Nelson in Everett

Don,
I was answering Stewart's post with mine before this one. But thanks for your insights as well.

Our shop was right on the ocean---U.S. Highway 101. There are a few photos of it and that town then, I think, at my folk photos site.
Depoe Bay had few ways to make a living then. Salmon fishing and lumber jobs was about all there was. Now, folks tell me, there are tons of condominiums along the ocean north of town. They've even got a stop light!!! Again, such is life.

When we were there the town had two good restaurants.---The Chinese one was owned by a retired actor, Mr. Lee, who had played the attending physician in the death scene where Yul Brynner was dying in The King And I. -- Fond memories--and it's fun to dredge 'em up.

Now I see. Thanks for the explanation. I guess we did the right thing.

What you said rings true. In '67 I was in the shop one beautiful day and California Gray whales were sounding off shore. As I was told, their leaping leaping almost clear of the water was to navigate by spying out for landmarks that meant something to them.

Well, I wandered outside to get a better view and talk with neighbors who were out there too. When I went back in, I wandered over to my desk where I found a magazine there that hadn't been there before. It was open to an article on the Communist influence in folk music with pertinent warning things underlined for my education and enlightenment. I figured whoever they were was letting me know that they were watching. Nothing unseemly ever followed after that, but I do still remember it.

Art, I don't know what happened in the Portland area after the mid-1960s, but from the mid-1950s up to at least the mid-60s, there was a lot of activity there, particularly around Reed College. Several Reed students used to pop back and forth between the San Francisco Bay area (particularly Berkeley) and Seattle when they had the chance between terms, and they were pretty avidly involved in folk music—pre-Kingston Trio. It was from them that I first heard of Bay Area musicians like Rolf Cahn, Jo Mapes, and Barbara Dane.

A few of them would zing down to Berkeley for a week or ten days between terms and take a couple of long guitar lessons from Rolf Cahn, and the way their playing improved as a result was most impressive. One of the things I wanted to do when Bob and I went to the Bay Area in 1959 was to take lessons from Cahn. We got together a couple of times, but he was due to head off to Cambridge, Mass. a week or so after we got there. But in that short time, I did get a chance to pick up some great licks and lot of new ideas from him.

There was a pretty active bunch in Portland during that period. I have no idea what became of them.

Art,

Yes it started in 1953 (I wasn't around here then, but Don Firth and Bob Nelson were), but died out after a few years due to the red scare (folk music organizations were considered suspicious or subversive by the authorities). In 1966 a different organization, the Seattle Folklore Society, was founded, but they have since turned into a booking agency for out-of-town singer songwriters. So Bob, Don, and I revived the PNWFS about a year ago to promote more traditional folkmusic by local musicians.

I do wish I had known of you people in 1967 when I started my FOLK-ART SHOP in Depoe Bay, Oregon. Back then we couldn't find any interest in folk music anywhere in Portland or on the coast and environs. We might've looked further north if we had realized you were there---=- and possibly I'd never have left the Pacific Northwest and returned to Chicago where I perceived that being in a folk scene was, at least, a possibility of sorts. I did love the coast and was very much into low tide exploration and marine biology.

You started in 1953!!?? Pretty amazing!

Such is life.

He could have bought this as far back as the 70s. I remember I was carrying one of these around for a while, but I can't remember if it was as far back as the years I lived in New York City (until late 1980). I'm sure I had my hands on it by the time I worked at Friday Harbor (1985).

This is an aside, but still I think this is the best group to direct this question to. I'm trying to track down information about two mountain dulcimers my father bought from a maker in Stanwood at "Traditional Instruments" on Village Road. He signed his instruments "Matheson," and they're works of art that sound as good as they look. We don't play them much, and it's time to sell them. Do any of you have other instruments made my Mr. Matheson, or can you tell me something about him and how his instruments were received? I suspect Dad talked to his folksinging friends about instruments as he collected them (there were quite a few folk instruments in his estate that were divided among us).

These are both hourglass-shaped dulcimers, but aren't identical. One has four equidistant strings, one has a course of two then two more equidistant from the rest. Both are hourglass shaped and of beautiful wood.

I've tried many types of searches to find this fellow or evidence that he existed, but come up empty handed. I thought I was on track when a business in Yreka, CA came to the top once, but while they were very nice and helpful, they weren't related (they relocated from Vashon many years ago).

Any suggestions you can offer will be appreciated. His granddaughter Moonglow is in college, so the sale of one of these will go to help her with fall semester. (Maybe enough to cover a few textbooks?)

Maggie, that sounds like a great idea.
"Notice To Mariners" would be just the thing.
I can probably give you a ftp site that you
can send it to if you can make a mp3 file
out of the tape.

You know, it seems like we're the only group
interested in the 'folklore' and folk songs
and history of folk music in Seattle and the
Pacific Northwest. The other organization
doesn't seem to think there's any folk music
history or folklore here. It only exists in other
places from which they import singer songwriters
to sing their latest songs of instant 'folklore.'
Oops, I didn't say that, did I? Don't quote me!

Cheers, S. in Seattle
Actually that other organization is good,
because every once in a while we get some
great folk icons. They're bringing Mike Seeger
here on April 26th.

Stewart, shall I dig out a song or two of Dad's? Something signature? I wonder if I have The Ballad of the Merry Ferry, or Frozen Logger? I know I have The Reggie of Blue Canyon, and there is the Blue Canyon Mine Disaster song, but I don't know if the tape I've listened to for years will yield great quality songs. Let me see what I can come up with. I'll have to park them somewhere online for you to download, unless you think one can be emailed? Nothing immediate, I have to track a good song down first.

What do you think of his singing that you'd like me to look for?

I must pay a visit out there sometime. But wasn't I out there a few years ago? Lord knows, it's all so much a dream -- friendly people sitting out on a deck, singing along on songs they've never heard before, from some long dead poet who made quite a name for herself in and around Victoria, BC.

There's been another CD since then, with even more songs adapted from her poems, not to mention some other sailor-poets: Charley Noble Website

Meanwhile, consider sending out a flying squad to the Mystic sea Music Festival, second weekend of June where a whole bunch of us will be holding forth.

The Swedes have an answer to Norwegian lutefisk.
It's the Swedish traditional dish of 'surstromming',
or fermented Baltic herring.
It has now been added to the list of dangerous weapons
such as shoe bombs, firearms, knives, and lutefisk
that are forbidden on airlines.
Swedish fermented herring dish considered safety risk on airlines

Lutefisk has been added to the list of prohibited substances
by the Dept. of Homeland Security.
The FBI branch office in Minneapolis has been alerted
to watch for signs of lutefisk production in that region.
And the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta warned
that any substance stored in lye
should be regarded as extremely dangerous.

It took us a couple of songs to get off the dime (it had been awhile since we'd done anything like this), but fortunately the audience seemed to enjoy it. At least we got away without being lynched! Nothing quite as humbling as listening to a recording of a performance one just gave!
