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.

Thursday Night HOOTS! at Odradeks Coffee House, February 2016

In December of 2015, I hosted an evening tribute on the occasion of Phil Ochs' 75th birthday at Odradeks Coffee House in Kew Gardens, Queens, NY.
Fifty years ago Odradeks was known as The Interlude Cafe, where the likes of Phil Ochs, Dave Van Ronk, and Jose Feliciano plied their craft.
On Thursdays there was a "hootenanny" where artists of all kinds were invited to share their talents.
The success of the Phil Ochs show led to an invitation to bring the hoot back to this Queens venue. The first of these Third Thursday of the month events took place on January 21, 2016.
Again, it was well attended and the music provided by Larry Block, Steve Suffet, Richard Benson, and yours truly was well received.
The Third Thursday in February again brought Larry Block to the stage. He was followed by the incredibly talented guitar stylist Lou Michaels, a staple of the Kew Gardens/Forest Hills music scene.
He was joined by his equally talented vocalist wife Marie Moskowitz. Together they brought quality and class to the evening's proceedings.
This video was edited for an episode of Songs of Freedom Television. It features my contribution to the evening. It is topically timely, with songs reflecting the current political climate.

Odradeks is gone, but we still have many wonderful musical memories to enjoy. I hope you enjoy today's show.  ~ joel

Thursday Night HOOTS! at Odradeks Coffee House, May 2016, 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.
In 2016, the third Thursday of the month brought musical jamming and featured performances back to that venue which was a vital element of the city folk scene fifty years earlier.
The Interlude Cafe became Odradeks Coffee House, and hosted Thursday Night HOOTS!  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.

I recorded the event and created three Songs of Freedom episodes. I hope you enjoy them. Thank you to Jake Block and his staff at Odradeks for making us feel so welcome.
And thank you to Jake and the other performing artists for the wonderful evening. The artists were 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 at the May hoot at Odradeks Coffee House.
It features an opening jam and then the multi talented Jerry Korobow and Joel Landy. It was a terrific and memorable evening.
I hope you enjoy watching it. peace and music ~ joel landy

"Low Budget" with special guest Eric Levine

Eric Levine meant a lot to a lot of people. He was a musician, songwriter, peace and disability rights activist, event producer, People's Music Network activist,
musical director and producer, humanitarian, brother, significant other, and so much more. He died at the age of 51 in 2008.

Among these other things, Eric served as Songs of Freedom's "Folk Doctor," appearing many times, advising me regarding program content, and sharing many songs.

Some of my favorite Songs of Freedom programs are the ones where Eric and I sat down together on a sparse set swapping songs and stories.
Tonight's show is one of those episodes. You can get a real flavor of who Eric was. If you knew Eric it will be good to see and hear him once again.

I hope you tune in.   ~ joel

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.
