Easy Ed's Sideshow of Solos, Duets and Ensembles: Session #42

Welcome to the 42nd installment of random thoughts, trivial facts. occasional fiction, poetry, haikus, photos, artwork, stories of fleeting fame and dastardly deeds, and videos or tunes that may have caught my attention or fancy of late.

Hangin' Out with Jules Shear and Pal Shazar

Last night I greeted musician, artist and my internet friend Pal Shazar the same way I did the first time we met a little over a year ago: with a big hug. As those who read my posts know, and those who don't will...me and Pal became pen pals since I began writing about her and her husband at the end of the year before last. And she and I share something in common in addition of a fondness for dogs. We both love the music written and sung by her husband Jules Mark…

Sarah Jarosz Reconceptualizes The House Concert

This is a tale with two moving parts.  First, a twenty-two year old young woman becomes so good, so fast...and delivers two sets of impeccable and improbable American roots music last night that it just might be as good as it gets. And for the second part of this story, she performs this magical musical feat at a simple house concert with two old friends from four years of summer  music camp. Well, maybe not quite your usual house concert, but by description and definition…

Frankie 'Hats' Pistachio Does KC

Frankie Pistachio woke up a little before noon in a cheap but clean motel some thirty miles outside of Kansas City, nursing a severe hangover. He laid there and listened to the voice of the colorful plastic clown just outside the window. “That will be $6.79. Please pull up to the second window.” The clown had an accent, and Frankie thought that maybe he came here from Mexico or one of the Central American countries.

He thought about the first window. Why didn't anybody ever…

The Sea The Sea ... A Magical First Album Debut

On November 9, 2013 Chuck E. Costa and Mira Stanley, two musicians based in Connecticut with a dotted line to West Virginia, who travel around and make beautiful music together, sent me a copy of their new album Love We Are We Love. This was not unsolicited. Last February I had written about seeing them as they were in the process of recording at the Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, and mentioned that I couldn't wait to hear the recording process evolution. They remembered.…

Ryan Webster's Point of Pointlessness

Back in 2009 when I was living in a little valley north of San Diego, there wasn't much live music except the annual bluegrass festival, some fusion jazz at the wineries and the occasional busker working the farmer's market. In another small town next to mine, a New Jersey singer songwriter named Davie Gayle was looking for someplace to play music herself, and also to create a…

Pete Seeger Dead: Folk Legend Dies at 94

JANUARY 27,2014|10:40PM PT

RE-POSTED FROM VARIETY  with permission from  Christopher Morris

Folk singer Pete Seeger, who established the music as an expression of community, conscience and social justice during a career that spanned eight decades, has died. He was 94.

Perhaps more than any performer, Seeger was instrumental in popularizing the…

The Kennedys...Used to Like 'em, Now I Love 'em

One day in 2006 or thereabouts when I was still living in Southern California, I found myself in Hollywood at Amoeba Records in a position I often took when I visited there: laying down flat on my stomach, with the cool and dirty concrete floor beneath me. At the west end of the store where they had about twenty-five linear feet of grey wood shelving with the sign above simply saying 'Folk', I would spend an hour or more combing through the bargain CDs. Up on top they have the new…

Pete Seeger's Dream Comes Alive

When Kim Ruehl tipped me off that there was something goin' on up in Pete Seeger's town of Beacon New York on the day we acknowledge the life, work, accomplishments and passing  of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., I hit the interwebs to dig up the information. In my mind, whenever the ninety-four year old Pete comes out to do something, it's pretty damn big news. An event. A happening. A gathering. So it was sort of surprising to discover barely any details of what Pete Seeger and the…

Sandra Louise Dyas Storms The Big Apple...(ton)

On my map, Appleton Wisconsin is about a half inch north of Milwaukee, and maybe slightly less than two inches to the right of Minneapolis. My friend Sandy Dyas was worried needlessly last night about driving back home to Iowa City this morning, because there might have been a storm coming in. But I can report that she is home safe and sound. Sipping wine on her couch and resting. 

She wrote to me: "After seven hours of driving (not always such great roads...) I am now…
