Pasadena Folk

The Pasadena Folk Music Society is very pleased to present the US debut of a fine new Celtic group, The Recollective, who are beginning their first American tour here at Caltech on Saturday, July 8 in Beckman Institute Auditorium (Little Beckman) at 8:00 PM.  The band consists of Calum Morrison, (Glascow, Scotland) on vocals, guitar, banjo, tenor guitar, bodhran and Highland bagpipes, Karen Hickey, (County Mayo, Ireland) on fiddle, Michael Coult, (originally from Glossop, close to Manchester, England) on traditional Irish flute and whistles, and Kieran Leonard, (now living in London, originally from County Fermanagh) on drums, percussion, & bodhran.  All of them have previously performed in the United States in other configurations, but they formed The Recollective in the past year after playing together in the Celtic Legends traveling show that has appeared for a million people worldwide over the years.  As Kieran explains, their name, The Recollective, is meant as a double entendre, firstly that they are a group that sings and plays music inspired by the past and secondly, that they are as a 'collective' play in a contemporary and edgy style.  They wanted a name that reflects both the traditional roots and the modern aspects of their music.  Their brand new debut recording is about to be released, and should be available for purchase at this show.  Hear Karen's beautiful fiddle interplay with Michael's flute, along with the perfect understated percusion of Kieran on the medley, Vals Til Mor Og Far/The Midge and Calum's vocal and guitar on Gin I Were a Baron's Heir. Help us welcome this fine band to our side of the pond!    

Tickets for the show are $20 for adults and $5 for Caltech students and children.  You can order them on the phone by calling the Caltech Ticket Office at (626) 395-4652.  Online tickets are available here.  You can avoid the service charge by purchasing tickets at the door on the night of the show or by visiting the Ticket Office in person at the Caltech Ticket Office in their new location at 1200 E. California Boulevard in Pasadena (Southeast corner of Wilson Avenue.)  Their usual hours are 9AM - 4PM, Monday through Friday.

Due to economic constraints (lack of work), I will be unable to attend Contata, and thus have two attending memberships available for sale. If you're interested in acquiring them (at the pre-reg price, which is what we paid), please contact me. Thank you. -- Callibr8

At Contata, a pick-up chorus will be performing Kanefsky's "Code" (ttto "Men of Harlech"), as arranged in Ed Stauff's "The Scared [sic] Harp." At the last MASSFILC filksing, we had people on alto, tenor, and bass, but adding some singers would be nice, especially sopranos to sing the melody in the proper octave! If anyone would like to join in, let me or Keshlam or Ellen know. We'll be doing it as part of the GoH concert. We'll squeeze in a rehearsal at some point.

Wha' hoppen?

Over on my own blog I've recorded something popping out of me (no, not TMI) that quite surprised me. You may enjoy it.
