FESTIVAL ANNIVERSARY CONCERT
in Long Beach:
7 pm “50th ANNIVERSARY OF THE NEWPORT FOLK FESTIVAL” is a delightful multi-artist extravaganza produced by performing host ROSS ALTMAN, with performances by SUSIE GLAZE & STEVE RANKIN, JILL FENIMORE, JOHN KELLER; TOM FAIR, ROB SANFORD, MICHAEL BIRNBAUM, and ANGELINE BUTLER, performing the songs heard at that landmark folk fest, by JEAN RITCHIE, THEO BIKEL, PETE SEEGER, GORDON LIGHTFOOT, MISSISSIPPI JOHN HURT, MANCE LIPSCOMB, REVEREND GARY DAVIS, IAN & SYLVIA, MIMI & RICHARD FARINA, JOAN BAEZ & BOB DYLAN, at the Found Theatre, 599 Long Beach Bl, Long Beach 90802; tix, 562-433-3363 or www.foundtheatre.org
+
Justifiably remembered as “The Folk Festival that Changed America,” the show features highlights from the 1965 Newport Folk Festival.
+
The 1965 Newport Folk Festival has gone down in history as the moment when Bob Dylan “goes electric” and practically gets booed off the stage, provoking by some accounts Pete Seeger trying to cut the mic cables to the sound system. After finishing his three song electric set Theodore Bikel (who just died last week) then urges Dylan to go back on stage with his acoustic guitar and “give the audience what they came for.” Dylan does so, but with a new song that expresses his alienation and declaration of independence from the folk audience that thought they owned him—It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue. Who knew when they came to this—The Folk Festival That Changed America—they would be witnessing the birth of folk rock? Apparently no one except the artist who made it all happen—“the original vagabond,” according to Joan Baez.
+
And yet this legendary folk festival had many other musical highlights during the four days from July 22 to July 25, culminating in Dylan’s set: classic blues from Mississippi John Hurt, Lightning Hopkins and Texas songster Mance Lipscomb, spirituals by Rev. Gary Davis, beautiful folk ballads by Ian and Sylvia and Mimi and Richard Farina and Time Magazine’s 1963 Cover Girl Joan Baez, Dylan’s Greenwich Village and Broadside Magazine compatriot topical songwriter Len Chandler—and America’s Tuning Fork, Pete Seeger, who started the folk revival back in 1950 with the Weavers — and passed away last year at the age of 94.

+
On the deck of “Star of India,” the world's oldest active sailing ship, the festival celebrates the rich history at the intersection of sea and song.

Sat, Jul 25, in Altadena:
7 pm CYNTHIA CARLE and MARTY AXELROD play the Coffee Gallery Backstage, 2029 N Lake Av, Altadena 92675. Reservations, 626-798-6236.
+
CYNTHIA CARLE has performed her own songs, on topics ranging from lost love to artificial dog testicles, at venues including Comedy Central Stage's Sit 'n Spin, TopTune, Mbar, Genghis Cohen, Molly Malone's, Witzend, McCabe’s, Firefly Bistro, Talking Stick, Old Oak Cellars, the Fanatic Salon, the Hollywood Fringe, and The Coffee Gallery Backstage. Her screenwriting credits include The Sixth Man and You Wish with Christopher Reed (for which they were Humanitas Award finalists), and the upcoming revenge road-trip comedy Sharkpunching in America. Her vicious alternative musical Christmas show, Christmas Smackdown, written with Mark Nutter, has been in performed in LA, at Chicago's iO, and at the Laurie Beechman in NY. It includes her tunes Angels and Severed Swedish Heads. She was best choreography nominee at the LA Weekly Theatre Awards for Re-Animator the Musical, in which she also played Dr. Harrod and a cookie-throwing zombie Brownie, in LA at the Steve Allen Theater, at the New York Musical Theatre Festival, and at the Edinburgh Fringe. As an actor, she’s been on Broadway in both musicals and non-musicals (she was drawn by Al Hirschfeld in the New York Times with a Nina in her hair), and Off-Broadway. She’s whooshed around in long dresses with corsets and fancy accents at leading regional theaters including the Guthrie and Actors Theatre of Louisville, and in films including Louis Malle’s Alamo Bay, playing a socio-economically challenged trailer-dwelling flower of Texas opposite Ed Harris. As choral geek, she's sung Beethoven's Ninth all over the place including Disney Hall under Zubin Mehta and at the Hollywood Bowl in Gustavo Dudamel's inaugural. You’ll find her songs Angels, Down at the Gitmo, and Passionate on YouTube. She’s thrilled senseless to be sharing the Coffee Gallery stage with Marty Axelrod, as she is his biggest, if not tallest, fan.
+
MARTY AXELROD is a songwriter and much more. Marty Axelrod wants to make you laugh. And shed a tear. Ideally during the same song. And he wants you to keep listening. So he tries to surprise and delight you with each line, each rhyme, each melodic turn. That is his mission as a songwriter. It is not a skill that was taught in his native Cleveland, Ohio. Marty had to spend time in Nashville to study the craft, co-writing with such luminaries as Irene Kelly, Rand Bishop and the late Tim Johnson. One of Marty’s songs was even recorded by folk legend Judy Collins…but it didn’t make the album. Happily ensconced in Northeast Los Angeles, Marty produced and co-wrote the acclaimed concept album Songs of Shiloh with Nicole Gordon. His musical Emperor Norton, co-written with Kim Ohanneson, has had four successful runs in San Francisco and LA. His songs have appeared on HBO’s True Blood, Friday Night Lights and other soundtracks, including a really bad Patrick Swayze movie…but at least Swayze dances to the song. Marty is a member of the six-man songwriter collective Tall Men Group, where he is known for songs about a cat lady and the first guy to make fire. Songwriters are among Marty’s favorite people, and of those, Cynthia Carle may be his musical soul mate. The idea of trading songs with her on the Coffee Gallery (back)stage makes him giddy with excitement.

Time tba JOHNNY MANDEL BIG BAND plays Catalina Bar & Grill, 6725 W Sunset Bl, Hollywood 90028; 323-466-2210; www.catalinajazzclub.com
+
Johnny Mandel and his all-star 18 piece Big Band perform two sets of classic music from the Johnny Mandel song book. Mandel is a Grammy and Oscar winning American composer and arranger of popular songs, film music and jazz. Among the musicians he has worked with are Count Basie, Frank Sinatra, Peggy Lee, Anita O’Day, Barbra Streisand, Tony Bennett, and Shirley Horn.
+
Considered one of the top living composers during the 1990’s, Johnny Mandel is one of the few writers around who is capable of writing standards that can be recorded and performed by a wide variety of jazz musicians and singer. Mandel starting writing arrangements when he was 13 but he made his living during the 1940’s as a trombonist and trumpeter, generally playing in sections of big bands. He picked up experience playing trumpet with Joe Venuti (1943) and Billie Rogers, switching to trombone for stints with Boyd Raeburn, Jimmy Dorsey, Buddy Rich, Georgie Auld, Alvino Rey and most notably Woody Herman’s Second Herd (1948) where his “Not Really The Blues” was one of several pieces that entered the book. He also worked with Chubby Jackson, Elliot Lawrence and Count Basie (1953), but by the early 1950’s Mandel‘s writing skills were in greater demand than his trombone playing. He contributed arrangements for Artie Shaw‘s short-lived bop band (1949) and for Basie (1952-56). Settling in Los Angeles in 1953, Mandel (who played bass trumpet for a brief time with Zoot Sims before ending his active playing) since then has made a living writing for films including occasional scores that are jazz-oriented, most notably 1958’s I Want To Live and 1965’s The Sandpiper (which resulted in “The Shadow Of Your Smile”). In addition to his movie work, Mandel has written arrangements for a countless number of performers including Frank Sinatra and Shirley Horn. Other famous Mandel songs include “Emily” (from “The Americanization Of Emily”), “Close Enough For Love,” “Hershey Bar” (recorded by Stan Getz), “Suicide Is Painless” (the “Theme from Mash”) and “A Time For Love.”

If you haven't heard of them before, here's what The North County Times wrote:
+
"A throwback celebration of the glories of harmonized vocals, San Diego's Jeff Berkley and Calman Hart are such gifted performers that they instantly elevate any song they touch. Soaring vocals in the model of Seals and Crofts or Loggins and Messina combine with virtuosic playing on guitar to create that elusive sense of magic that most bands never manage."

Doors at 7:30 pm. , Showtime about 8. These guys are excellent.

+
In this production of “As You Like It, ” director ELLEN GEER moves the tale of two sets of brothers — one alienated by ambition, the other estranged by envy — to the divided South of the post-Civil War era, adding traditional American folk music and dance from the period. Rosalind is forced to flee camp when her uncle Frederick, usurper of his brother’s position as a general in the Union army, threatens to have her killed. Accompanied by her cousin Celia, Rosalind disguises herself as a man for safety's sake. The disguise comes in handy when she tests the devotion of her noble admirer, Orlando, on the run from his hostile older brother. Meanwhile, the rebel camp is alive with music — banjo, guitar, ukulele, mandolin and more. With Rosalind's wit leading the way, the forces of true love, justice and song eventually triumph.

+
For his first recording for Sony Classical, “Appalachia Waltz, ” GRAMMY-winning violinist MARK O'CONNOR collaborated with fellow GRAMMY winners YO-YO MA and EDGAR MEYER. The album gained O'Connor worldwide recognition as a leading proponent of a new American musical idiom.
+
His successful follow-up release, “Appalachian Journey, ” received a GRAMMY for “Best Classical Crossover Album.” After an award-winning recording career in Nashville appearing on more than 500 albums, several of which are GRAMMY winners, including his own “New Nashville Cats, ” O'Connor has immersed himself into perpetuating American classical music. His first full-length orchestral score, "Fiddle Concerto, " has become the most-performed modern violin concerto composed in the last 50 years.
+
In 2009, he developed the “O'Connor Method” for violin and strings, which takes an American classical approach to modern violin playing, offering a technical foundation using a diverse range of traditional American string repertoire. The “O'Connor Method Camp” will be held for the first time in New York this August. O'Connor's "Americana Symphony, " recorded by MARIN ALSOP AND THE BALTIMORE SYMPHONY, had a successful multimedia performance earlier in June with the NATIONAL REPERTORY ORCHESTRA in Breckenridge, Colorado.
+
O'Connor's upcoming release, “Duo, ” a collaboration with his wife, fiddler/violinist MAGGIE O'CONNOR, features American classics arranged for two violins. In the museum’s Clive Davis Theater, Mark O'Connor will engage in an intimate discussion surrounding his music career, moderated by Scott Goldman, Vice President of the GRAMMY Foundation. And yes, the discussion will be followed by a special performance with O'Connor and his wife.
