Saturday August 27, 2010: Summer Folk Plus

Folk Plus is a blend of contemporary and older singer songwriters with perhaps spoken word or Broadway tunes, or whatever may be relevant to the theme.  The station's website and stream are online at WWW.WJFFRADIO.ORG

Thanks to staff and station management for accommodating Angela'a health issues and maintaining a chemical and fragrance free environment. Complying with these accommodations allow her to continue to volunteer Saturday mornings. Thanks also to John Webber for handling website and recording issues for Folk Plus.

On August 1, 2010 NPR's leane hanson interviewed three Red House contemporary folk artists.. and the first few minutes sounded like this:

1. Red Horse: Three Singer-Songwriters United In Harmony - Interview on NPR with Lianne Hanson... first two minutes. -

My partner John Webber recorded Red Horse this past weekend at the Summerfolk Festival in Owen Sound Canada. The first portion of folk plus involves playing some of their cuts with their own introductions, startig with Lucy.

I met Lucy when she was 18 moving from Chicago to NYC. Kaplansky also has a PhD in clinical psychology. Shawn Colvin brought her out of practice in 1994 doing THE TIDE for red house. In 1998 Kaplansky joined with Dar Williams and Richard Shindell to form the folk group Cry Cry Cry.

[Next week Dar Williams will be playing locally at Bethel Woods. I will be speaking with Dar, and if you are interested in a free ticket e mail me at and I will add you to the lottery.]
