Today in Labor History September 27, 1903: The Wreck of the Old 97 U.S. railroad disaster occurred on this date. 11 people were killed when the train, traveling from Monroe, Virginia, to Spencer, North Carolina derailed and careened off the side of a bridge. It was traveling at excessive speed in an attempt to stay on schedule. The wreck became the subject of a popular ballad covered by The Statler Brothers (feat. Johnny Cash), Charlie Louvin of The Louvin Brothers, Flatt and Scruggs, Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Johnny Cash, Hank Snow, Hank Williams III, Patrick Sky, Nine Pound Hammer, Roy Acuff, Boxcar Willie, Lonnie Donegan, and many others.

Today I encountered this piece by Chris Partington, a contributor to the Village Music Project, an interesting little read about the proportion of different keys in historic print and MS tune compilations. It looks like D and G dominated English folk music well before the melodeon that is sometimes "blamed" for their prominence came along.

Today in Labor History September 4, 1970: Socialist Salvador Allende was elected President of Chile. As president, he tried to nationalize major industries, expand education and improve conditions for the working class. On September 11, 1973 (the other 9/11), he was ousted in a coup by Augusto Pinochet, leading to a dictatorship that lasted until 1990. Thousands of workers, socialists, union members and activists were killed, including folk singer Victor Jara, who continued to sing, as his torturers mashed his fingers and demanded that he play his guitar. The coup and dictatorship were supported by the CIA, and by President Nixon, and by the Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, who later won the Nobel Peace Prize.

Here's is an interview & rare live footage of Jara singing his classic: El Derecho de Vivir en Paz.

So, for my #FolkMusic gig last night for the Downtown Windsor BIA #YQG I had a successful test of my #BikeFolker set up....

New bike trailer
JBL EON One compact PA
Yamaha Silent guitar
An excellent collapsible mic stand
And faaaar too many "just in case" cables...

A couple of conclusions

I love being less and less car dependent! Thanks @notjustbikes for putting me on that path 😉

I think I'll feel much better getting the padded backpack/case for the JBL... Like it might suffer less from the bumps and vibrations of it being in my bike trailer..... If anyone else out here has any experience with that sort of use case, please chime in (I wouldn't object to some boosts to help broaden my reach)

I really need to replace my decades old Boss TU2 tuner pedal... The LEDs are getting too dim to see even in the dark, even with my homemade Pedal Shade. (Wanna contribute? I'll sit on a cake for ya 😜 )

Today in Labor History August 23, 1900: Folk and protest singer Malvina Reynolds was born in San Francisco, California. She is most famous for her song, "Little Boxes," a satire on suburbia, inspired by the tacky sprawl of housing in Daly City, just outside of San Francisco. And used as the theme music for the TV series “Weeds.” As a teen, the city’s elite Lowell High School refused to give her a diploma because her parents opposed US participation in World War I.

The songbook always includes songs by Joe Hill, Ralph Chaplin, T-Bone Slim, and Haywire Mac. Most editions contained many of the best-known labor songs, like "The Internationale," "The Preacher and the Slave," and "Solidarity Forever."

There has never been a time when people were making #Melodeon / button accordions of the quality they’re playing in European #FolkMusic right now

Similarly, a Louisiana #Accordion today is based on the $4 German button 🪗 they played back in the 1920s

But those folks would be shocked in many ways by the instruments they’re selling for $4,000 in Louisiana now

The German button boxes from the 1860s on were mass-market catalogue-items

So there were few Stratovarius level button-boxes to be saved

If you’d been lucky, you’d have been a concertina player in the 1920s–30s when the flighty London bourgeoisie dumped the finest concertinas in the world into the laps of Irish housewives

#Concertina #Accordion #Ireland #folkMusic

Page on Irish music from my book Accordion revolution:

Only County Clare maintained many concertinas after 1930. In 
other areas, recordings and radio arrived as early as the 1920s, and 
home instruments like concertinas fell from use. Clare, however, did 
not get electricity until decades after places like Dublin. At the same 
time, players in County Clare benefited from the decline of the concer-
tina elsewhere. Travelers to London and other urban centers returned 
with once prohibitively expensive Wheatstone and Jeffries instruments 
found in pawnshops.

For anyone wondering whether I fixed that reed problem with my concertina, I can report that playing my instrument doesn't make me nuts any more. While I can still hear the buzz/sizzle if I listen very hard for it, the worst of the bad sound is gone.

Part of the issue was the harmonics of this particular concertina -- it definitely has its own little mystery spot -- but good instructional videos and advice helped me banish most of the problem.

Today in Labor History July 14, 1912: Folk singer Woody Guthrie was born. During World War II, he wrote the song "Talking Hitler's Head Off Blues." Around this time, he also painted THIS MACHINE KILLS FASCISTS on his guitar. He saw fascism as a “form of economic exploitation similar to slavery.” During the Great Depression, he romanticized the deeds of outlaws like Jesse James and Pretty Boy Floyd as legitimate acts of social responsibility and protest against those who were responsible for the worsening social and economic conditions of working class people.

It is true that this is not the best time of the year to go traipsing around in the woods and the fields.

Here's another version of the black fly song I hadn't seen before.

🎶 I'll die with the black flies pickin' my bones in north On-tair-eye-oh.🎶

The name/expression is the title of a handful of instrumental klezmer tunes as well as in a number of Hasidic and #YiddishTheatre songs too, and of course a regular #Yiddish expression. Here's my fave #klezmer one by the Elenkrig orchestra of NYC
