The lights of Falcon Ridge is definitely a breathtaking site to see.

Oooh..and first post!

K-Lyn Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
Mmmmmmmmmmmm,  Dar!
Phoenix Back · 17 years, 2 months ago

Hee. Dar all the way. But that doesn't come as a surprise...
(And Susie Chanteusie is 2nd)

nate... · 17 years, 2 months ago
Peter isn't listed???

Josh Woodward Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
Even *I* wouldn't have voted for Peter in this poll. It's far too big of a venue for him to play - the intimacy is lost. I didn't really get anything out of it when I saw him there. *shrugs*
Gordondon son of Ethelred · 17 years, 2 months ago
I voted for the Kennedys but if we count people who have been to only one FRFF then it would be Richard Thompson. I think the Kennedys would agree with me on that. Maybe they'd vote for Dave and Tracy. I've been thinking a lot of Dave recently.
jaye Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
i had been thinking erin or the paperboys, but oh, wow. good call on dave. you win.
hkath · 17 years, 2 months ago
The only performer to be banned from FRFF, AFAIK.

Also, in 99 when we snuck into the tent where they kept the satisfaction surveys and read a whole bunch, I swear like 75% requested him back, most in really big letters. Damn those FRFF people.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
No Adam Brodsky is banned too.

I love Dan. I've been following him from the very beginning. I see him every time he plays there area. All that being said, I totally understand his being banned. He went out of his way to get banned. He was asked to not play "spaceman fucked the monkey" and he did it anyway. FRFF is a family oriented event and I can understand the organizers concerns. So many parents would object to that song.
goovie is married! Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
you'd think some parents might also object to, say, "enormous penis," "who da bitch now," or "shaving off my muff for you," but dvn and eric have played frff for several years now. i think it has as much to do with whether or not the organizers like you as it does with the "objectionable" content of your songs.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
No it has to do with the fact that they asked permission first and did it at a workshop where they warned everyone before hand. There is a huge difference.
100% dainty! Back · 17 years, 2 months ago

I second that. There's a big difference between the main stage and the workshop stage.

i picked susie, but i bet that wasn't a surprise. . . .although i was leaning towards the nields too. . . .cause I :heart: them so much.

jen · 17 years, 2 months ago
i never got to see dan at ffrf, i only went to one. damn the man keeping him down!!
J. Andrew World · 17 years, 2 months ago
Moxie Furvous guys!  Thay were kinda cool.  And Janis Ian.  And the Paperboys!!!!!
Josh Woodward · 17 years, 2 months ago
Greg Brown rocks the hizouse.
ChrisChin is Getting Old · 17 years, 2 months ago

You left out my favorite, crapface!

Is crapface the new insenstive clod? :)

stealthlori Back · 17 years, 2 months ago

No, crapface is a new favorite act. 

I said Dar, but off in the far reaches of Fantasyland I'd like to see Dave and Tracy again.  I also favor more performances by the Paperboys and Mopy Frootloops. 

Phoenix Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
hmm. crapface sounds more like death metal...
Chaya Papaya · 17 years, 2 months ago
ummm...I don't really have much to say about this...except that they needed a forum thread...and it is SO cool when Julie's voice fills the hill. And what would the gospel wake up call be without them!?!
jaye Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
a glorious and beautiful land free of "great day".

*cough*
Andrea Krause Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
WORD. wordwordword.
stealthlori Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
*nods*
goovie is married! Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
not to mention "hey little man."
nate... Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
THAT is far worse.

God.
These folkies... ya know, it's cute that they wrote a song about their kid... very cute.. and sweet. And if they wanna sing it once, that's cute.

But... please, PLEASE take them out of regular rotation.
jaye Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
that is definitely worse. but i was thinking purely gospel wake-up.

wow. yeah. i really hate that song. *shudder*
Andrea Krause Back · 17 years, 2 months ago

Me three. Or four.

 The lyrics. Ugh. So ugh.

I know, likely to piss people off. But I just don't think Julie should write songs.

lawrence Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
yeah, really. her songs are the lyrical equivalent of those silly posters you see around some offices. (and no, I don't mean these)

stealthlori · 17 years, 2 months ago
Jimmy LaFave
Ferron
Susan Werner
Mary Gauthier
100% dainty! Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
I think the reason Ferron nd Susan haven't appeared is because they got eaten by the killer tents.
stealthlori Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
it was bound to come to this ... someone we loved would eventually fall victim.

*sigh*
Melinda J. Beasi · 17 years, 2 months ago
I voted for Vance, because he is a truly great performer, and I wouldn't miss his mainstage show for the world, but I have to give mention to Jeff Lang, who has become one of my dear favorites. I've only ever seen him at FRFF, and he manages to blow me away every time.
renita Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
for me it had to be vance.

of course, I've only been to the one frff. but he was amazing.
John J. Ryan · 17 years, 2 months ago

Honorable mention goes to:

Greg Brown

The Kennedys

Erin McKeown

Vance Gilbert

Tracy Grammer

Arlo Guthrie

C&M Thompson

Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
If I had another vote it would go to Arlo. I always want to see Arlo. I actually do get to see him pretty much every summer for free. It is always a treat.
goovie is married! Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
yes, i would love to see arlo again--and this time, i'd like to *not* be suffering from strep throat and a high fever in the first aid tent. :)
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
Yes while of course everyone should have the arlo/strep experience once, twice is just too much of a good thing :-)
stealthlori Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
I've seen Arlo when Carey had strep, and when Carey didn't have strep, and I thought he was much more enjoyable when Carey didn't have strep. Even though she wasn't there to have strep.

Well, it made sense to me. ;)

goovie is married! Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
and it amused me. so that's all that matters. :)
Phoenix Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
I second that. I saw Arlo twice this year (FRFF and Club Passim) and he was *so* impressive.
Shelly · 17 years, 2 months ago
for some reason, my computer won't allow me to reply, seeeooooooo.......

1. who is this 'fruvous' that you speak of?

2. susan werner generally does the fest every other year{as her road manager told me once when i did lights for her, so mayhap we'll see her this year.

3. most people{fruheads, i mean} skip gospel wake-up call anyhoo coz of it's earlyness, competition with other workshop, etc..., so i guess then if GREAT DAY bothers them, they just suffer through it to get to the rest of the stuffs...

4. i must say that i{if the only person} appreciate the up-tone of GREAt day because, ya know what...a LOT of people complain and whine and worry{i myself am a worrier...}, so sometimes iffin i listen to that, i -do- have more faith in myself and that everything'll work out coz i can handle it. *shrug*

5. it also wouldn't let me click on lawrence's link, so i dunno what juliesongs™ he deemed ok, so i'm gonna put in a defense for 'it ain't worth', imagine me, all i ask, no rules, and various others offa her albums.

6. re: the performers writing aboot their kids. for the most part....yah. agreed. coz though cute and funnily earwormy, one must admit that 'amelia's little red dog' and its pals are not musical masterpieces.{and nate, i don't mean coz of the voices...heh}

7. if there were a way possible to see dave & tracy again, i'd SO be there....whereever..... i still remember appel farm last year when care and grrrodan and i went and sitting there and telling carey i could listen to them forever........ *wistful sigh*

8. so -how- many days did you say it was til FRFF, john??? *g*
Andrea Krause Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
Just in terms of Julie-reply. It's not so much the sentiment of the songs I know that I object to, it's the execution. I just don't think she has a handle on lyric writing yet. It's especially clear when put alongside the talents of robbie or mike.
stealthlori Back · 17 years, 2 months ago

*duplicate sigh* Who was to know that would be the last time I'd see them?

Forever, and in the hereafter, I amend.
goovie is married! Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
same here. i will also always regret that i could have seen dave carter's very last show, at jammin' java, but i opted out at the last minute because "after all, i'll be seeing him in just a few weeks at frff."
Phoenix Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
I'm so with you on this. I had the opportunity to see Dave and Tracy last year in May but opted out. So sad.
goovie is married! Back · 17 years, 2 months ago
lawrence wasn't linking to julie songs, he was linking to the "demotivational" posters at despair.com--i think he showed them to you one time at my old apartment.

i do like "it ain't worth" a *lot*...it's the one julie song i know that's got some real darkness and depth to it, instead of the kind of saccharine and simplistic stuff like "hey little man" and "in paradise."
