FSGW getaway workshop: song collectors

Subject: FSGW Getaway Workshop on Folksong Collectors
From: Nancy-Jean

This workshop will begin with a presentation on the Flanders Ballad Collection--Helen Hartness Flanders (on tape) explaining the historical context of her work, excerpts of field recordings and other amusing and personal memories from someone who knew her.

What happens thereafter depends on who comes! So who are you? Sandy and Caroline and .......

It would be fun to hear about (and from) other well-known and lesser-known collectors. How is collecting done? How does one credit the source? What do you do with your collection? Hopefully we will hear both dialogue and song and everyone will have a chance to do a little collecting on the spot.

Looking forward.... Nancy-Jean

Will there be any way to play CDs at the workshop? We've got a CD-R of our soon-to-be-released trad CD made up from items in our archives. If not, I'll bring a portable unit (boombox) along with all our other stuff.

I am bringing a "box" which plays CDs and tapes.

The workshop is scheduled (tentatively, at least) for "Lodge B" (near where all the Mudcatters are sleeping) on Sunday after lunch. There are electric outlets, I would assume, but no resident equipment is supplied--bring your own sound stuff, and there will a place to plug it in.

Hi Nancy Jean, great idea for a workshop, love it. If you'd like I have some tape cassettes. One set from George Herbert ('THE' Master Rigger from Geelong), who sailed the Baltic & Cape Horn to Australia trade (don't knw what industry) pre & post WW1. I also have field recordings from Roger Abrahams (thanks to Abby Sale) that he used for his collection in "Deep the Water Shallow The Shore". Maybe you can enlist Liam's Brother in this. This shoul be a great one. Hope there's plenty of time or it all.

Barry
