I finally figured out how to embed video into my blog… watch out this St. Patty’s Day may be a cavalcade of video updates. I’m overdue for some blog updating anyway, so you can bear with it!
Check out this fantastic video I shot of Fishtank Ensemble at Bordello for last month’s Malabomba:
Here is a video of Triple Chicken Foot with Ruth Alpert at the Old Timey Winter night that I curated back in December. The next HM157 squaredance is on April 17th 2010 – so mark your calendars for that
And this in a grand clip from 1928 of The Ingenues playing a tune on the banjo.So charming and cute! Thanks to Auriana for finding this gem.
I need to pick up my banjo more often! shame on me.
The HM157 Old Timey Nite show went on without a hitch! It was such a lovely night and I adore all of the performers. It was nice to take an evening and attempt to be present in holiday splendor without rushing around or planning ahead. It was extra special because my longtime friend (from Alemany days!), Liz Ohanesian, covered the night for the LA Weekly with photographer Shannon Cotrell. The evening was featured in a slideshow on the Weekly website. You can see the slideshow and Liz’s narration here. Below I posted some of my favorite photos. All the photos are by the lovely Shannon Cottrell.
MERRY CHRISTMAS! xoxo
I am curating my first show on Dec. 20th inside beautiful Victorian mansion, HM157, with a fantastic mix of old time music, tribal bellydance, Appalachian clogging, Gyspy fusion, storytelling, performance art, and more! This is a very important nite to me. I get to combine two things I love so very much old timey American folk music and tradition with world music and fusion bellydance. It’s very exciting!
Come join us as we create unique collaborations and celebrate the season – you don’t want to miss this special evening as we resist corporate co-option of the holidays and celebrate community love and spirit with some old timey goodness. Maybe you will get lucky under the mistletoe? Perhaps Krampus will come for a visit? Can I really restrain myself from calling a dance?
Find out on December 20th!
hope to see you there!!!
