2018 New England Folk Festival Funny Songs Hour, show 1

It was a pleasure to host the 2018 Funny Songs Hour at the New England Folk Festival. This is the first of two Songs of Freedom episodes recorded and edited after the annual spring NEFFA event.

This year's Funny Songs Hour was memorable for its performances and energy. My favorite part was the "Lightning Round" at the end, a frenetic flurry of quick zingers. Tune in and see for yourself.
Laugh along and remember ... Shtick Happens!

Maybe it will happen again in April of next year in Mansfield, Massachusetts. Join us then.

Produced by Mike McHugh and Vanessa Lovestone in association with Lori Behrman and Bill Mayer, Wicked Willy's hosted a tribute to the life and music of the late Tom Petty. It was a terrific evening of Rock N'Roll and raised money for MusiCares, a philanthropy that meant a lot to Tom Petty.

Artists who performed included Curtis Becraft and Carla Lyn Hall, Roger Blanc, Paul DeCoster, Heather Eatman, Buddy Grecco, Joel Landy, Michael McHugh, and The Serpentones. This video was the first of two Songs of Freedom Television episodes edited from the event.

More about MusiCares: MusiCares Foundation was established in 1989 and incorporated in 1993[2] by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. Meant for musicians to have a place to turn in times of financial, personal, or medical crisis, its primary purpose is to focus the resources and attention of the music industry on human service issues which directly impact the health and welfare of the music community. The foundation's programs include emergency financial assistance, addiction recovery, outreach and leadership activities, and senior housing.

Thursday Night Hoots! / May 2016 at Odradeks Coffee House in Kew Gardens, Queens, show 1

During the early 1960s The Interlude Cafe in Kew Gardens, Queens, regularly hosted the voices and guitars of Phil Ochs, Dave Van Ronk, Al Kooper, Jose Feliciano, and other noteworthy musicians. On Thursday nights there was a "hootenanny", with local talent and others taking the stage and filling the space with music.

From December of 2015 through the spring of 2016 I hosted Thursday night HOOTS! at Odradeks Coffee House, a venue that stood at the site of The Interlude Cafe.

The May 2016 hoot was a terrific evening. Great players showed up and everyone in attendance had a great time. The music started before the show actually started when arriving musicians were tuning their instruments in different parts of the room. Suddenly a song broke out and the whole building was filled with music and the evening's first jam. One player who was having coffee ran back home and got his fiddle and joined the party. That was the kind of evening it was. It was magical time in this rekindled musical space.

The artists featured this evening included Jake Block, Alan Alter, David Butler, Eli, Jerry Korobow, Lou Michaels, Marie Moskowitz, Gina Moffet, and Steve Suffet. This video is the first of three edited episodes recorded that night. It features an opening jam and then the multi talented Jerry Korobow and Joel Landy.

I hope you enjoy watching it.     peace and music ~ joel landy

Joel Landy / "Remembering Phil Ochs" at the 2017 New England Folk Festival

Hosting an hour devoted to the life and music of Phil Ochs is something I get to do at the New England Folk Festival. The 2017 NEFFA session was a sweet and memorable one. Thank you to everybody who came to sing and remember Phil Ochs. Special thanks to Steve Suffet for sharing a song and a story about Phil, who left us too soon and whose songs are as relevant today as when he wrote them.

"What is Public Access Television?"
an interview with George Stoney
Recorded in 1997 at the Manhattan Neighborhood Network in New York City

More from the Songs of Freedom Television archives!

More than any one individual George Stoney is credited with the development of public access television in this country. George is no longer with us but his legacy lives on. I studied community media with Professor Stoney at New York University in the 1980s. His inspiration and encouragement pointed me in the direction that became Songs of Freedom Television. Tonight's interview was recorded in 1997 and includes George's retelling of the history of public access tv and why it remains relevant and important.
 

Personal Note:  For many years the last Saturday in June had great meaning for me as George Stoney celebrated his birthday with the Puleston family on the family estate in Patchogue, NY. A "Who's Who" of video documentary makers, George's students, public access television professionals, and invited guests would enjoy an afternoon in the country, with great food and spirited conversation.  Those coming from the city would be picked up en masse at the train station and transported to the Puleston property. Entertainment would be provided by a ragtime band (The Isotope Stompers), and frequently a troop of performing teenagers and younger artists.  The annual party event was a moment in time in my life and a celebration of the life and accomplishments of a great humanitarian and teacher. I am grateful to have been included on the party list.

 Keep watching Songs of Freedom!  Tune in and don't tune out!
