Saturday 12/1 2:00 - 4:00 pm Workshop with Geoff Kaufman: "Exploring the African/African American roots of chanteys". Building upon the recent publication of Gibb Schreffler's Boxing the Compass, I will delve into the idea that the singing of chanteys on deep water ships developed from black sailors bringing aboard their tradition of call and response music. At Pearl Studios, 519 Eighth Ave, Room H, Manhattan, between 35th & 36th Sts. Contribution: general public $15, members $12. Reservations required, contact Heather at 646-628-4604, hwood50 (at) aol.com

Nobody could have planned a better way to finish off the Alliance's Annual Meeting & Conference! If I seemed somewhat speechless after your performance, it was simply because I was overwhelmed and couldn't find the words to say.
