Folk College is May 17-19, 2002, at Clarion University
in Clarion PA. The emphasis of the weekend is on all folk instruments
playing together. Most of the workshops are open to all instruments,
plus there are jam sessions led by festival staff. Resident bands this
year include Simple Gifts, Silk City, Flapjack, Cucanandy, and Raisin
Cane. Please visit their website at http://www.simplegiftsmusic.com/cfc.
Suggested by Uncle Jack. If you're looking for scales, chords, tablature
and maybe a jam track or two to practice to then this is the place you

Let's work together on building the audience for local music and dance.

Thanks. Below is the show description.
Program: Country Corner
Station: WCOJ 1420AM, The Voice of Chester County
Length: three hours/week: Sundays 1-4PM
Host: Bill Moffett
The program communicates closely with local musicians, performance locations,
and organizations. I keep the audience informed of concerts, festivals, and
dances in our area through public service announcements. The program also
covers (through PSAs) storytelling, local jam sessions, and participatory
singing. The program is somewhat educational: occasionally a special segment
on a musician, a form of music, or a style, and perhaps a dash of history or
interpretation. Area musicians, event organizers, storytellers, and musical
historians are welcome on the program to chat.
