Re: “A Cracking Good Time

And therein lies the power of classical music. Because of it's technology (which I consider far superior to ours) it can be interpreted and reinterpreted throughout the centuries. Notes written on paper allow generations of musicians to put their particular spin on a Mozart, Bach or Tchaikovsky piece. Glenn Gould comes to mind.
Will The Beatles be covered 200 years from now? Somehow I doubt it, the minstrels of Beethoven's time are long forgotten.
Maybe there will be some equivalent to the Renaissance Fair with a bunch of people dressed up as mop tops singing "Love Me Do."
There's nothing wrong with entertainment, but it is not built to last.

Re: “Let the Music Lift You

Just FYI: The GoAways (listed Sat. night at Sirens Song) do not feature Jay Forbes on drums. The drummer is Jeff Langdon. James Forbes plays bass.

The Battle of Little Bighorn happened 142 years ago, not 148 years ago. I regret the mistake.

Re: “DJs, St. Paddy's and a Gut-string Quartet

Hi Collin,
I was glad to see the review of a string quartet and that you are "a sucker for string quartets and chamber music, so I will very likely be there as well."
Nothing against the all gut group playing in a very small venue, but the Eureka Chamber Music Series features nationally known chamber musicians (10 concerts this year) in a large venue with great acoustics, and so far as I can tell the only mention is in the online events. I wouldn't expect a big write-up for each ECMS group but why not a mention in the Setlist? I would be glad to send you the promotional material well in advance.
Thanks for considering.

Re: “Hear Some Music, Make Your Own

I can't be bothered with Music;
I have work to do and I have to pay.
Musical instruments are a luxury item only the nouveau riche bourgeoisie can afford.
This is just tickets to a music venue
I can only imagine how much $$$$$ is actually spent on the musical instruments and teaching and learning.

Re: “In Defense of Silence

I wouldn't mind someone cranking music 24/7 as long as it is 4 minutes 33 seconds by John Cage. Anything else is intrusive. Good opening.

Re: “Musical Drag

Folk music is eternal, it is necessary, the masters can take most things away but that's not one of them.
Music, or any art, is not inherently good or bad, just liked, disliked or ignored.
I respect everyone's musical tastes, whether it be Pachelbel, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Britney Spears or John Cage.
Me, I'm a Beethoven man.

Re: “Letting the Days Go By

I like your column. A lot. I moved to Humboldt when I was 15; I came from the south, and brought my accent with me. I was the kid who talked funny and had the long hair. It wasn't an easy place to move to, as is the case with many other small towns I reckon, but by the time I graduated from EHS, Eureka felt like home. I was involved in the local music community (which it was-and hopefully still is), primarily in an all original band called Radio Sex, but played in a couple different bands throughout my time up there. I was lucky to be in an area with so many amazing musicians, and even more fortunate to be able to play with many of them. Your column takes me back to that time, and I'd like to thank you for that. Today's column took me right out to Trinity Lake; it wasn't gangsta rap back then, but it was DEFINITELY the same dude: tank top, flip flops and either Vaurnet's or Ray-Bans...thanks for the stroll...

Re: “Let's Go Get Folked

Actually, Andy, a few Yokels are playing at the Festival, and there's no distress among them. I guess you could say it's a festival for Folks who like to play music for Folks. And, of course, a celebration of the rich musical diversity in our lovely Humboldt County home.

Steve Irwin (Yokels, Delta Nationals, TimberRidge Boys)
