Again, it's all a capella, any song with a good chorus to sing along on. Harmony not required, but encouraged. Bruce and Howie are working on a web page of links to lyrics of songs we sing.

Also, stay tuned for details of a Sunday afternoon buffet at the Penguin (probably Aug. 9th) that Katherine and I are organizing as a fundraiser to help Sandi and Brian pay for the huge cost of reinforcing the side wall of the pub.

Ronnie Gilbert died

Hi folks,
This has been a bad few weeks for folk performers. We've just lost Ronnie Gilbert of the Weavers as well as Jean Ritchie and Art Thieme. See the NY Times obituary below.

Let's see if I can copy-paste that New York Times Obit (Joe Offer of

Ronnie Gilbert, Folk Singer for the Weavers, Dies at 88

Ronnie Gilbert, whose crystalline, bold contralto provided distaff ballast for the Weavers, the seminal quartet that helped propel folk music to wide popularity and establish its power as an agent of social change, died on Saturday in Mill Valley, Calif. She was 88.

The death was confirmed by her partner, Donna Korones.

Ms. Gilbert had a résumé as a stage actor and later in life a career as a psychologist, but her enduring impact was as a singer.

The Weavers, whose other members were Pete Seeger, Lee Hays and Fred Hellerman, started playing together in the late 1940s. Like-minded musicians with progressive political views, they performed work songs, union songs and gospel songs, and became known for American folk standards like "On Top of Old Smoky," "Goodnight, Irene" (first recorded by the blues singer Lead Belly), Woody Guthrie's "So Long, It's Been Good to Know Yuh" and "The Hammer Song" (a.k.a. "If I Had a Hammer") by Mr. Seeger and Mr. Hays, as well as songs from other cultures, including "Wimoweh" from Africa and "Tzena Tzena Tzena," a Hebrew song popular in Israel (though it was written before Israel was established in 1948).
