The Flowing Waters of Lake Jefferson

Saturday November 22, 2008: Folk Loop
Folk Plus is hosted and planned by Angela Page and airs Saturdays from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm on WJFF, at 90.5 fm in Jeffersonville, N.Y. and 94.5 in Monticello N.Y. We are Hydro-Powered Public Radio, run mostly by volunteers and funded by members. We have two week archives and we stream online at WWW.WJFFRADIO.ORG 

THANKS SO MUCH to the station management fo accommodating  my health issues which allow me to continue to volunteer Saturday mornings and bring you the music that 'moves and sustains me. '

Once a year our area hosts one of the four regional folk gatherings for the international folk alliance which happens yearly in Memphis in February. This past weekend at the Hudson Valley Resort hundreds from the world that supports and generates folk music gathered for a conference. During a luncheon John McCutcheon began a sing along of Soladarity Forever in honor of the great late, Utah Philips. One by one performers linked up and joined voice.

During conferences like this and in small venues and large across the nation, musicians learn each others tunes and sing along all the time. I thought it would be fun to create a folk loop show where each cut links somehow the one preceeding it, and following it.

25.From Christine:
 Last week at the Moab Folk Festival in Utah, John McEuen of "The Nitty
Gritty Dirt Band" asked me to join in on the finale, "Will The Circle Be
Unbroken."  He asked me to take a verse and I asked if I could write a special one -- he
said yes, so this is what I sang.  I recorded it when I got back to NYC, and
now it's a free one-minute free download.   One of the singer/clappers is a
Republican, hence the name of the group.   Though he didn't vote for Obama, he
sees the wisdom of us all pulling together.   Ciao! Christine
