An email I received on the BCM Festival from its director--- if you're interested in participating, etc.:

Hello BCMFest friends and supporters-

Well, applications for BCMFest 2010 (Jan. 8-9) are due very soon -- July 1st.

This year we're focusing on the core tradition, so trad ensembles, session hounds, and tradition bearers, please consider applying. But we won't discount new and progressive collaborations, either. If it's Celtic-based, and it's good, BCMFest wants YOU.

Download an application and send it in by the end of the month! If you know someone you think should appear at BCMFest, pass this message along to them. And if you have applied in the past, you don't even need to send a sound sample.

ALSO: In the true fashion of a 21st-century traditional music event, BCMFest is now on Twitter! Click here, and then do a search for BCMFest. Then you keep up with all the BCMFest happenings.

Thanks as always,
The BCMFest Board

Dia Duit mo Chairda!

For my Irish Storytelling Class, we have an open-ended project for the final.
We can do a painting, poem, research paper, etc. -- whatever we want.

Well, MY idea is to do a modern-day Ceili-- meaning, via the internet.

My idea was to do a Pod-Cast Ceili-- which is sort of a party like thing where people share music, poetry, stories, chats, etc. -- Not just listening to CD's or records, but singing Sean Nos style, or playing instrumetns, etc.

Well, I'm not THAT talented. I'm not one woman show by any stretch of the imagination... So I was hoping I could elicit some help...

Would anyone be interested in helping me with this project? I would need either written poems, or recordings of you, yourself reading the poems-- or stories! And for those musicians out there maybe allow me to use a snippet of something, small sound byte of your music for the pod cast?

What are your favorite Irish folk (or otherwise) stories? Is there one you could suggest I tell?

Of course you would get full credit for your work-- not only credited in the recordings, but also in the paper/report I have to write to accompany it...

Oh-- and does anyone even know HOW to do a podcast?? :-p

I have an opportunity to get it hosted on too, so that's a start...

Sad thing is, I only have 2 weeks to do this!!!

So-- do you think you could try to help me with this?? Please?


Slainte agus Beannachtai!

Oh, I see you were talking to Robert, Anomaly. Anyway, I was born and raised in Dorchester and went to special schools when I was growing up.

You grew up in New Bedford?? I grew up in Dartmouth! Wow! What a coincidence! :-p
Neighbors-- practically!

I grew up listening to the John Latchford Show on WRYT-AM 950 (now WROL), and I've listened to how Irish music has changed in the past 40 years. Today, Paul Sullivan, Matt O'Donnell, Richard Fitzgerald, Bill Bailey and Seamus Mulligan are keeping that tradition alive with their programming on the weekend!
Thank you, gentlemen, for continuing the tradition!
