There are these rare moments when musicians together touch something sweeter than they've ever found before in rehearsals or performance, beyond the merely collaborative or technically proficient, when their expression becomes as easy and graceful as friendship or love. This is when they give us a glimpse of what we might be, of our best selves, and of an impossible world in which you give everything you have to others, but lose nothing of yourself. Out in the real world there exist detailed plans, visionary projects for peaceable realms, all conflicts resolved, happiness for everyone, for ever – mirages for which people are prepared to die and kill. Christ's kingdom on earth, the workers' paradise, the ideal Islamic state. But only in music, and only on rare occasions, does the curtain actually lift on this dream of community, and it is tantalizingly conjured, before fading away with the last notes - Ian McEwan, from his novel Saturday

Tompkins Square Label Presents...
« on: February 26, 2013, 03:26:39 PM »
I received an e-mail from Tompkins Square. The following may be of interest to some:

Thurs. March 14th, 2013
St. David's Episcopal Church 301 E. 8th St. (Bethell Hall, upstairs)
Austin TX

8PM  Harry Taussig (first live performance - ever !)
8:50  Alice Gerrard (legendary folk singer)
9:50  Hiss Golden Messenger (NC singer-songwriter)
10:50 Daniel Bachman (VA guitarist)
11:50 Luther Dickinson (N. Miss. Allstars)
and between sets : Terry Waldo (ragtime piano kingpin)

Alice Gerrard, known for her work with Hazel Dickens and Mike Seeger, is recording an album for Tompkins Square, slated for Fall release.  This is her first SXSW performance. American Primitive Guitar pioneer Harry Taussig will perform live for the first time anywhere, ever. His first album was released in 1965! Hiss Golden Messenger have a new album out first week of March. We released their last one, 'Poor Moon' to much acclaim. Luther Dickinson recorded a 78 rpm record for us last year. Terry Waldo wrote the definitive history of ragtime, studied with Eubie Blake, and is probably the greatest living ragtime pianist. His Tompkins Square debut will appear later this year.

I really admire a guy who waits 48 years to play a gig!
