        Hillbillies from Mars : extra-terrestrial fiddle tunes and songs
                                   Thursday, Nov 20  8:00 PM

    "This band could probably get dead people to dance." 
                               - Danny Carnahan, Roots & Rhythm 

  Based in the Bay Area, the Hillbillies from Mars have been rocking out in the traditional music
and dance scene since 1982, which means they're overdue for their 30th Anniversary Concert!
This November also marks the 1-year anniversary of their nationwide 1m22s of fame, performing
the soundtrack to the Google Thanksgiving Doodle.  Join them for one of their rare Bay Area
concert appearances.

  Drawing from Appalachian, Canadian, Celtic, and European repertoire,  their trademark sound
features powerful fiddling interwoven with mandolin, flute, accordion, and bagpipes, all with
rock-solid polyrhythmic backup. Individually, the Hillbillies have studied the traditional music
of many cultures, and they bring together these influences, along with their own roots of
contemporary American music, to perform music that is as soulful as it is unique.  Their concerts
include songs, stories, and always a few surprises.

Great night of the Gaita - 8pm
1111 Addison Street
Berkeley, CA 94702
(510)548-1761
Price: $20.50 advance, $22 at the door

First ever Galician Bagpipe Institute in Berkeley on August 5 and 6, followed by a Galician musical evening at the Freight and Salvage Coffeehouse, on August 7 at 8pm.

 

From Galicia, professor Alexandre Cadarso will be teaching a two-day intensive on the music and social context of the Galician bagpipe—the Gaita Gallega.  There is limited space available for anyone interested in this mysterious, fierce, compelling, joyous music. Sr. Cadarso has recently published two books on Galician, A Requinta Adobada, about the music of the small transverse flute native to the region, and  Juan Bello Mallou‑O gaiteiro das Casas Novas. about the life of Juan Mallou, one of Santiago de Compostela’s  last gaiteiros, or pipers, whose music was completely woven into the fabric of traditional daily life. In this way participants will learn a rare and beautiful folk music and much about the setting in which it existed in its natural state.  Attendees will have the opportunity to try Galician percussion on pandeireta ( tambourine) tambor 

(a small rope tension side drum) and bombo (a rope tension bass drum), as well as the requinta flute.  Dance traditions will be discussed and demonstrated, and Galician cooking demonstrated and eaten. Attendees will be asked to donate on a sliding scale to cover the expenses of the event.

 

Then on August 7 at 8pm at the Freight and Salvage Coffeehouse, at 2020 Addison St. Berkeley, 510-644-2020,  the culmination of our gathering will flower into a grand night of the Gaita featuring Galician music in small and large ensembles. Gaitas, traditional Galician costumes,  songs, zanfonas              ( hurdy gurdys),  fiddles wild percussion,  and other instruments will played by some of the Bay Area’s finest traditional musicians. The sound of 10 pipers piping is not to be missed!

 

 

 Galicia, an autonomous region of Spain in the far Northwest of the Iberian Peninsula, has often been likened in climate and  geography to Ireland, and indeed there has been a strong cultural connection between the two places for thousands of years. In fact Galicia owes its name to the Gaelic tribes who were there when the Romans arrived. But Galicia, and Galician music share many roots in addition to the Celtic. Music has arrived since medieval times and before, with the Romans, the Arabs, the Visigoths, and  along the famous Camino de Santiago, the pilgrimage route across northern Spain which has been recently undergoing one of its periodic surges in popularity. The traditional music of Galicia is particularly rich. Bagpipes are seen in religious iconography dating back a thousand years, well before the Scots ever squeezed a note. The singing tradition is mighty and Galicia is known for its beautiful and energetic dances, compelling songs as well as its huge store of folklore.

 

Alexandre Cadarso has been an instructor of Galician traditional music on Gaita, Accordion, flute and percussion for over 20 years. He has made teaching tours on behalf of the Galician government to South and North America, and made several pilgrimages to California to teach eager students. He has played and recorded with such groups as Berro de Castro, Resonet and currently plays in Galicia with the Verdegaio duo.

 

Other members of the troupe will include members of the Brunos and Wake the Dead, and other California folk luminaries.

The Other Bagpipes: Exotic and Lesser-Known Piping Traditions of the World - 7:30pm
Annenberg Auditorium, Cummings Art building
Stanford, CA 94305
Price: FREE

For a thousand years, across Europe, North Africa, and much of the Near East, rural people danced to, performed rituals with, and treasured the music of their indigenous bagpipes—once one of the most ubiquitous of folk instruments. Today, though, the bagpipe is most often thought of as a uniquely Scottish instrument, a circumstance largely due to the British Army’s use of Scottish regiments as the vanguard in their creation of the British Empire.

This program will introduce listeners to the bagpipes of many cultures, along with a bit of the folklore associated with this powerful, beguiling, almost shamanic instrument. The piping traditions of Ireland, Scotland, England, France, Spain, Italy, Sweden, Slovakia, Croatia, Georgia, Iran, and Tunisia will be represented. The pipes of these countries range from grand to petite in size, and in sound volume and timbre from strident to suave. The pipes themselves are marvelous cultural icons to look at—each unique, and each chosen to represent a particular type, or family of instruments.

Kevin Carr presents a program," My Grandfather's Fiddle - Stories for the Solstice", consisting of Fiddle Tunes, Bagpipe Melodies, Songs and STORIES from Ireland, Quebec, Galicia, Scandinavia, Pennsylvania, and other distant places. He'll be playing various kinds of Fiddles,Swedish Pipes , Irish Uilleann Pipes, Scottish Smallpipes and Galician Gaita.  

Grandfather's Fiddle was an elusive instrument, a legend in Kevin's family, which he's pursued since he was a young man. The whole time he was also traveling and collecting music and lore from far flung places around the world, following his imagination and luck. It took him decades to realize that he was never going to find his grandfather's actual fiddle, but that he was in fact slowly discovering the kind of magic that would make his grandfather's fiddle come alive again, and resonate in the imaginations of his listeners.

For over thirty years dynamic fiddler-piper-storyteller Kevin Carr has honed his craft in smoky Irish pubs, remote cabins in Quebec, and in dance halls across America. He's played banjo in Latvia, learned to play the bagpipes of a dozen countries and dug deep to find just the right stories to share. His one-man musical theater of the imagination blends folklore, true-life adventure, and the rare, soulful sounds of fiddle and pipes into a mesmerizing experience for listeners of all ages.

The Family Carr is  a quartet of musicians who play exciting, tradition-based music, with their own touch. Kevin Carr and Josie Mendelsohn, father and mother, are veteran players of bands such as The Hillbillies from Mars, The Good Ol' Persons, the Arkansas Sheiks, Wake the Dead, and Les Têtes de Violon.

They have travelled from Appalachia to Québec to Galicia and points between, learning tunes, songs, making deep friendships, and immersing themselves in the local cultures, as have son Daniel and daughter Molly, who have lived in Galicia, Cuba, Peru, and Ireland.

Together they perform on guitar, keyboard, fiddles, banjos, mandolins, accordions,Irish and Galician bagpipes and percussion. Their evocative songs and tunes are moving and delightful, their musicianship exciting, and audiences find their love of playing together infectious

Samba Fogo & SambaDa to Headline 15th Anniversary
World Beat Festival June 30 - July 1

Cultural Legacy Theme Featured Through Youth Performances

The Salem Multicultural Institute today announced that Samba Fogo of Salt Lake City will headline the 15th Anniversary World Beat Festival, which takes place June 30 – July 1.  Samba Fogo Music and Dance Company draws on Afro-Brazilian traditions and mythology and fuses Brazilian dance and fire dance.  Their dances are all choreographed to live music to create a unique, dynamic, culturally rich performance style.   (see more here) 

The World Beat Festival  Story

One February evening in 1997, two moms with young daughters set out to form a positive response to incidents of racism and intolerance in Salem, Oregon. On rolls of poster paper stretched across a dining room wall, they mapped out a celebration of cultural diversity.  The World Beat Festival, celebrating its 15th anniversary this June 30-July 1 is a true story of community action.  The Salem Multicultural Institute, the nonprofit that they formed to operate the festival, has since flourished.  It operates programs all year long with a small staff and more than 400 volunteers.

I've been carried away by music and stories all my life: from the first wild tales my
grandfather told me, to the dream-faceted gems contained in old ballads….from the
resonant power of a trance dance melody coaxed from a middle eastern bagpipe, to the
siren sigh of horsehair bow across an eager fiddle string.
I experience stories and music as the links between the inner and outer realms—and as
the bones, blood and sinew of the imagination. They are truer than truth because they
give our experience of the world its structure and form. Imagination is the home territory
of the human spirit. Its body is story; its blood is music.
We live and dream and create through story. And for me the proper soundtrack consists
of raw, rooted tunes played on old wooden instruments.
Carried Away….
is an evening of story and music from a gifted purveyor of both. It is tales that are true,
re-imagined, and retold from deep roots, with music played on fiddles and bagpipes from
many lands.

Every December, California Revels produces, “The Christmas Revels,” a joyous production welcoming the return of the light back from the darkness of winter. Elizabeth Lloyd Mayer, California Revels late Founder, claimed that many people celebrate the Solstice without realizing it. Decorating homes with lights for midwinter, for example, is an ancient ritual for “calling back the light” that predates Christmas by centuries. “The Winter Solstice falls on the shortest day and brings on the longest night of the year. Across the centuries, people have chosen this time to acknowledge and celebrate the cycle of light and darkness, good and evil, life and death, that governs all our lives.”

What became of King Midas after the whole Gold fiasco? What is the oldest reed instrument in Europe, and why did Marsyas the Satyr wish he had a bagpipe instead? Should you ever trust a man who lives in a waterfall? What happens when you take Hungarian pipes to a party? And, after being kidnapped by Fairies, exactly what kind of pot of gold should one ask for? An evening of stories true and slightly true, with tunes and songs from several corners of Ireland, Norway, Hungary, Euskadi, Appalachia and Scotland. Kevin Carr has been telling stories and making music for decades, and a sweet, rousing, enchanting evening is guaranteed. Expect fiddles, banjo, and several small bagpipes.

 

You can visit Kevin's web site at <http://www.kevincarr.org> and hear some samples at <http://www.kevincarr.org/stories/>, <http://www.kevincarr.org/music/> and <http://www.kevincarr.org/video/>
