Live performance and chat with Samuel Vas-Y
 
Self-described Singer Song Scribbler Samuel Vas-Y (pronounced vazz-EE) began life in France but uses Dublin as his homebase, picking up influences from both and a lot in between. On his most recent album, "Tickly Teeth," Samuel (who also uses the surname Arnold) presents a playful blend of familiar and foreign, with little touches of Serge Gainsbourg and Jeff Buckley popping out of the mix. Samuel Vas-Y is working on a new album and played a few tunes for Irene

Hi Irene and everyone.

Wow, you weren't kidding Irene when you said very soon you will be having a lot of folks come in.

Looking forward to Samuel Vas-Y tonight, but really Bikoff next week!
  Tue. 1/13/15 9:07pm Robert:

Wow, usually we get all those strings from your show. Very interesting change of pace, thanks.
Avatar Tue. 1/13/15 9:07pm Van in DC:

Tips for brass players: Don't be brass players outside...in 0 degree weather...in band...like I was once. Em brochure becomes Ouch!brochure!
Avatar Tue. 1/13/15 9:08pm Van in DC:

Strings next week with Bikoff!

Evening, everyone :)

evening all! hope everyone is comfortable and warm.
Avatar Tue. 1/13/15 9:14pm Van in DC:

The real mystery in a brass segment is will there be any Maynard Ferguson - greatest trumpeteer ever? Conquistador...wow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/13/15 9:14pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The Golden Festival is 1/17 at Grand Prospect Hall. Transpacific Sound Paradise will be broadcasting live and Irene will help bring it to us. Yay!
Avatar Tue. 1/13/15 9:15pm Van in DC:

I stopped doing Twitter for new years resolution, so miss out on all of that stuff. Like Soundcheck, etc.

Squirrels, Squirrels, Squirrels could be the anthem for all the critters in this neighborhood!
  Tue. 1/13/15 9:18pm Robert:

My family used to take me to Yugoslav cultural events at Prospect Hall. I even have some 16mm movies of us there.
Avatar Tue. 1/13/15 9:20pm Van in DC:

Sax & Violins always works for me. And you can carve that in Brass, Percussively.
Avatar Tue. 1/13/15 9:24pm Van in DC:

As an aside - as of this very minute, the DVD we expected to be out by now (hoped I mean) of KaTe's Before The Dawn concerts is still missing in action. Not available. I guess it will be really good when it finally premieres.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/13/15 9:25pm JakeGould:

Wow! Cool stuff, Rob. Was Grand Prospect Hall main Yugoslavian or just Slavic or not even that specific… Just Eastern European… There’s a Polish history to that part of the Slope that is all but washed away right now.
Avatar Tue. 1/13/15 9:26pm Van in DC:

This seems like actually a rare treat for brass fans.

Thanks Irene, for this set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/13/15 9:27pm Irene Trudel:

Hi everybody! Just settling in for the evening here. Jake, as I was told when I first visited, the Grand Prospect Hall was an old German Opera House many moons ago. The Golden Festival took up residence there a few years ago, and the hall seems like the perfect setting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/13/15 9:29pm Irene Trudel:

Robert, you should post some of those movies to You Tube. I'll be there were some long-forgotten musicians who played those events. is there sound to go with it?
  Tue. 1/13/15 9:29pm Robert:

I really don't know, Jake. I know only from my few experiences there as a child. Not sure whether the content was specifically Croatian or also Serbian. I do seem to recall the titles in the outdoor movies they showed were in the accented Roman alphabet, not Cyrillic.
Avatar Tue. 1/13/15 9:29pm Van in DC:

I went to an old German opera house in Frankfurt, WEST Germany. Many many moons ago. I think to see David Sylvian in concert. Or Japan. I forget.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/13/15 9:29pm Irene Trudel:

Van, as for the KaTe video, I can be very patient. These things take time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/13/15 9:31pm Irene Trudel:

Oh, and here's a link to the Golden Festival schedule. Rob W. and I will be broadcasting live from the Ballroom starting at 6pm EST. goldenfest.org...
  Tue. 1/13/15 9:31pm Robert:

Not sound movies, sorry, Ms. Trudel. I haven't even run them thru the Bell & Howell in many years, hope they haven't deteriorated too badly.
  Tue. 1/13/15 9:33pm Robert:

Mostly nitrate stock in the family movies. Only some of the later ones were on acetate, so better preserved.
  Tue. 1/13/15 9:35pm Robert:

Some 50' reels, some spliced into 200-400'.
Avatar Tue. 1/13/15 9:37pm Van in DC:

Irene - Doug S. knows but maybe nobody else...did you know I was a music major in college? Performance? I intended to go to Juliard. Anyway, I could work my way around a few instruments. Brass mostly. Trombone, trumpet...etc.... which means I would be a starving high school band teacher today if I had kept that path lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/13/15 9:40pm JakeGould:

The fascinating thing to me about Park Slope is how it used to have a Little Italy (3rd Avenue between President & Union to 5th Avenue) and a Polish/Slavic area in the teens 20s. Virtually gone now. Happy some small remnants are still alive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/13/15 9:46pm Irene Trudel:

Wow, Robert, sounds like those are in great need of preservation/sharing. And Van, I did not know this about you. We all have a little music in our backgrounds whether as players or enthusiasts.
Avatar Tue. 1/13/15 9:50pm Van in DC:

You nailed it Irene. I remember my own mother asking me when I was very young, "Why does music mean so much to you?" She just didn't get it. She never understood. And I was sad about that.
Avatar Tue. 1/13/15 9:52pm Van in DC:

Sitar...?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/13/15 9:54pm KP:

Or as someone dear to me once said, I dont get it, you only care about music and politics.
i replied, what about the Yankees?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/13/15 9:54pm KP:

Good evening Irene, Van and all.
  Tue. 1/13/15 9:55pm Sybil:

@Van: bouzouki, I'd guess.

Oh yeah, good evening Irene and all.
Avatar Tue. 1/13/15 9:56pm Van in DC:

Hi KP! I am happy someone else understands :)

Not sitar, I agree. No idea what though. Bouzouki? okay..
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/13/15 9:57pm Irene Trudel:

Sybil & Van, both wrong. It was the Oud. Hi KP!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/13/15 9:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Ah, wonderful Black Sea Hotel! A Trio Bulgarka for this decade!

Hi Irene and Trukeepers!
Avatar Tue. 1/13/15 9:58pm Van in DC:

Wow. Ouch(d)
  Tue. 1/13/15 9:58pm Sybil:

Belated thanks for the Charlie Hayden. I was busy cooking while it was on and it brought a smile to my face. (Wish I could be at the tribute, but it's good to be listening here too!)

Oud, really? You know, I was going to say that, and then I thought, nah, can't be.

Well, they are close relatives.

MATT! Yo & hellos

Oud, North African instrument?

Yo yo yo hi Van! I *can* make it to the U Street show this Thursday! :)
Avatar Tue. 1/13/15 10:00pm Van in DC:

So many esteemed folks coming in - howdies all!

Matt - I will be there.

@RRN63: Like lightening your step early in a winter evening, and with this music lighting a fire late in a winter night...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/13/15 10:02pm Matt from Springfield:

@Van: Wonderful, I'll mark myself with some FMU apparel, as per usual hoping someone recognizes it (this time - it's a sure thing!)
Avatar Tue. 1/13/15 10:02pm Van in DC:

Matt - I will be wearing my black Woof-Moo t-shirt. And maybe a Woof-Moo scarf on top of my Woof-Moo hoodie.

- wull, it's -4°F here - so light bloody something once I'm back indoors !
Avatar Tue. 1/13/15 10:07pm Van in DC:

Matt - Kawehi puts on a pretty awesome show. I'm sure you will love it. She is something else.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/13/15 10:07pm Matt from Springfield:

@Robert: That sounds awesome, about Yugoslav dancing home movies. Is your family from there? I'm part Slovenian myself. I rescued some local (Steelton PA) folk LPs from my grandmother's house--Slovenian "tamburitza" and "tumbala" style bands.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/13/15 10:10pm Matt from Springfield:

@Van: Lookin' forward to it!

@Irene: Awesome--youth ensemble! "Čoček", that seems to be Macedonian?
  Tue. 1/13/15 10:12pm Robert:

Matt, Mother's side was Croatian, although my cousin thinks Grandma was Serbian. I've got some Yugoslav 78s & LPs. I played some once for friends and was surprised to have them identify one track as "Buffalo Gals". I didn't know that song in English!

That's great, Robert! Glad you keep the older music around.

Greets coelacanth!

I think I need to go find a tourniquet for my arm. Bleeding to death. hopefully be back on archives.

Syd Barrett meets Bobby Darin! Very cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/13/15 10:21pm Irene Trudel:

Van, take care of yourself! Matt, the Čoček Youth Ensemble is local, but I guess Macedonian in spirit. They played at the top of Rob's broadcast from Golden Festival last year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/13/15 10:22pm KP:

Awesome guest.

Yeeech, be careful Van! Take care, stop the blood, and don't forget the antiseptic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/13/15 10:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Okay, thanks Irene!
Good thing the Golden Festival keeps the local Balkan spirit alive and gives it a venue to perform. And thank you and Rob for covering it year after year too!
