Steve,

MTV: Info taken from text file of torrented audio. However, after your post I did verify on MTV website the location was Universal Ampitheatre (now called Gibson Ampitheatre) in Universal City, CA.

Seattle: Well, I guess Cosmic Energy got the date wrong on the video I have of the performance. :angry:

BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards (2008)

February 4 2008

The Imagined Village brought folk well and truly into the modern age at the 2008 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. With a colossal backbeat of Indian drums and percussion led by Johnny Kalsi, a Copper Family chorus half-a-dozen strong, and massed musicians including Martin Carthy, Eliza Carthy and Chris Wood drove the song on.

Under the guidance of musical director Simon Emmerson, the 200 year old song ‘Cold Haily Raily Night’ was a powerful and spectacular opener for the ninth Folk Awards show, a night of great musical moments and meetings.

Hollywood star Sean Bean presented his old friend John Tams and Tams' musical partner Barry Coope with Best Duo, and Martin Simpson assembled an all-star cast of Danny Thompson on bass, Kate Rusby on vocals and Andy Cutting on accordion for 'Never Any Good', which was voted Best Original Song. Martin later collected Best Album for Prodigal Son.

Andy Cutting himself received a standing ovation as Led Zeppelin’s legendary John Paul Jones announced him Musician of the Year.

Former Blur guitarist Graham Coxon presented Shirley Collins with the Good Tradition Award for her exceptional contribution to folk music, then took the stage to perform a sensitive Just As The Tide Was Flowing as tribute. Radio 2's Bob Harris presented The Imagined Village with the award for Best Traditional Track for their version of 'Cold Haily Rainy Night' and Magic Numbers frontman Romeo Stodart confirmed Bellowhead as folk’s Best Live Act for the second year running.

The hotly tipped quintet Rachel Unthank & The Winterset capped a great year by picking up the Horizon Award as best emerging artist and soothed the hall with their haunting 'Felton Lonnin'. Long-time folk fan and national treasure Brenda Blethyn presented Lau with the award for Best Group, and Martin Green, Kris Drever and Aidan O'Rourke turned in a high energy performance to show exactly why they deserved it.

After filling the hall with her beautifully evocative Gaelic songs, Julie Fowlis had barely left the stage before a wonderfully enthusiastic KT Tunstall announced her as Folk Singer of the Year.

The climax of the night was the Lifetime Achievement Award to John Martyn, presented by long standing friend Phil Collins. "At last I’m a celebrity," joked the Scotsman as he and his superb band – with John Paul Jones on mandolin – kicked into Over The Hill and an amazing version of May You Never, greeted with rapturous applause from the hall which had the big man, and many others, beaming.

BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2008

John Martyn picked up the Lifetime Achievement Award and performed with Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones at the 2008 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. By Ciaran Farrell - 05/02/08

----------------------------------------------

The Irish Times

Feb 5, 2008

The Scottish singer-songwriter was presented with his award on Monday 4th February by his friend Phil Collins – with whom he first collaborated on the 1980 album Grace And Danger.

In a special message for the night, Eric Clapton described John as being "so far ahead of everything, it's almost inconceivable" and acknowledged the extent of his influence on "everyone who ever heard him."

John's live performance was enjoyed by an audience which included established and up-and-coming stars of the British folk scene, and guest presenters including Sean Bean, Brenda Blethyn, Romeo Stodart of The Magic Numbers and KT Tunstall.

Graham Coxon, the Blur guitarist and critically acclaimed solo artist presented the Good Tradition Award to Shirley Collins, in recognition of her exceptional work championing English song, and paid fitting musical tribute with a performance of Just As The Tide Was Flowing.

The big winner of the evening was Martin Simpson, who took home the Best Album award for Prodigal Son as well as Best Original Song for Never Any Good.

The Imagined Village's Cold Haily Rainy Night received the award for Best Traditional Track. Other winners on the night included Lau, Best Group; John Tams & Barry Coope, Duo Of The Year; Andy Cutting, Musician Of The Year; and Bellowhead won Best Live Act for the second year running.

The all-girl folk quintet, Rachel Unthank & The Winterset, were confirmed as a group to watch out for with this year's Horizon Award. Previous winners have included Cara Dillon, Jim Moray, Karine Polwart and this year's Folk Singer Of The Year, Scots/Gallic singer Julie Fowlis.

The ninth annual Radio 2 Folk Awards were held at The Brewery in London and hosted by Radio 2's Mike Harding, who said: "We celebrate another year of great music with well-deserved awards for exciting young traditionalists like Rachel Unthank and established, world-class musicians like John Martyn and Shirley Collins."

ARTIST ROBYN HITCHCOCK WITH SPECIAL GUEST JOHN PAUL JONES

DATO/TID 30. april 2008 kl. 23:00 - 00:30

STED HOTELL NORGE - BANKETTSALEN

PRIS 320,-

ALDER 20 år

John Paul Jones utgjorde 1/4 av Led Zeppelin, verdens største rockeband på 1970-tallet som for all ettertid har kastet en gigantisk skygge over det musikalske landskapet. Robyn Hitchcock kjenner vi fra perioden i artrock-bandet Soft Boys og som høyt respektert solo-artist. Musikken de sammen fremfører er en fjern slektning av deres fortid, en slags "psykedelisk bluegrass rock& roll", som de selv kaller det. Robyn synger og spiller gitar, John spiller mandolin, national steel gitar, bass og synger. De elsker å spille sammen på fester i hjembyen London og har nå utvidet med Norge som ny arena...

Britiske Robyn Hitchcock har kultstatus i musikerkretser og har gitt ut 20 album over en 27 år lang artistkarriere som startet med The Soft Boys på 80-tallet. Vi snakker rett og slett om en av Storbritannias mest folkekjære sanger/låtskrivere med en hang både til folkrock og psykedelia.

De siste årene har han operert med band-kollegiet The Minus 5, som består av store deler av R.E.M. nærmere bestemt selveste Peter Buck samt stadionbandets turnemusikere Scott McCaughey og Bill Rieflin (Ministry). Hitchcock’s mangeårige vennskap med Peter Buck førte til at han var med som bandmedlem på “Green”-turneen til R.E.M.

Nå når R.E.M. er ute av opplag og aktuelle med både nytt album og Bergen som stoppested på sin verdensturné, er det ingen ringere enn Led Zeppelineren John Paul Jones som er Hitchcock nye musikalske lekekamerat. De to bor i samme nabolag i vest-London og har samme forkjærlighet for skakk bluegrass og tradisjonell folkemusikk. Etter noen vellykkete opptredener i hjemtraktene har de nå bestemt seg for å la flere få ta del i deres musikalske univers. De begynner i Norge. Første stopp var en særdeles hyggelig festivalopptreden på fjorårets Down on The Farm. Bergenfest er et naturlig steg videre på veien mot verdensherredømme...

February 23, 2006 Seattle, WA Integrated Media Association Conference Party

(on mandolin w/Uncle Earl)

Live from Seattle - it's Folk Alley!

February 24, 2006

Once a year, we get together with our brethren in new media to discuss current trends and gaze into our collective crystal balls seeking the truth about the future of the Web. To celebrate the kick-off of the Integrated Media Association Conference, Folk Alley hosted the opening reception last night, complete with concert performances by Uncle Earl, Mike Marshall & Hamilton de Holanda, Sonya Kitchell and Garland Jeffreys. And, surprisingly, Led Zeppelin guitarist John Paul Jones, who is producing the next Uncle Earl album. Al sent back pictures for proof. I hope many of you were able to tune in and listen on-demand, it was a great show. And a needed break for the tech-heads amongst us.

Earlier this month I played a show in London with Robyn Hitchcock in aid of Medecin Sans Frontiers (Doctors Without Borders). Also in the band were Peter Buck, Scott McCaughey and Bill Rieflin from REM. I joined the set with a killer version of ‘8 Miles High’!

John Cage Uncaged: A weekend of musical mayhem

Friday 16 – Sunday 18 January 2004, Barbican Centre

The BBC Symphony Orchestra (SO) gives the first orchestral performance in the UK of John Cage's seminal silent work 4'33" in the opening concert of its forthcoming annual Composer Weekend at the Barbican on Friday (16 January 2004).

BBC Radio 3 is broadcasting the performance live and is the first broadcaster to risk airing nearly five minutes of ambient silence, with BBC FOUR broadcasting it an hour later.

Radio 3's emergency backup systems, designed to cut in when there is apparent silence on air, are to be switched off.

4'33" demonstrates Cage's view that all sound is music and that, "Wherever we are what we hear mostly is noise".

He wrote: "… When we ignore noise, it disturbs us. When we listen to it, we find it fascinating."

This is just one of the events in the BBC's forthcoming John Cage Uncaged at the Barbican from Friday 16 to Sunday 18 January, a packed weekend of concerts, talks, films and 'happenings' to celebrate the life, influences and legacy of this maverick musician, writer, artist, mushroom expert and cultural icon who died in 1992.

The weekend also includes the largest ever Musicircus to be staged in Europe with more than 345 people divided into 51 groups performing simultaneously or carrying out various actions in unexpected places throughout the Barbican in two separate 45-minute events on Saturday afternoon.

Just some of the sonic collisions taking place include Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones playing a flashing bass guitar, members of the BBC Symphony Chorus having a dinner party on the foyer, amplified cacti (kindly lent to the BBC by Kew Gardens), one man playing five tubas connected by 16 feet of tubing and singers disguised as Barbican staff who will sing information to you.

There will be a host of well known groups and performers from Piano Circus to Chinese Erhu player Tzy-Tau Weh and Pete Cooper's Irish Band to the Guildhall School of Music and Drama Percussion Ensemble, who also give a late night Barbican Hall concert featuring Cage's great works for percussion.

Among the other highlights are an 18-hour performance of Erik Satie's marathon piano work Vexations given by more than 50 pianists from top classical performers and composers to jazz stars Django Bates and Julian Joseph.

There will also be a performance of material from Cage's Songbooks which involves sopranos Frances M Lynch and Nicole Tibbels, along with pianist Rolf Hind, drinking gin, eating crisps, playing cards and having a party, as well as singing.

The BBC SO's annual January Composer Weekends at the Barbican have become highlights in London's musical life, bringing the music of leading twentieth, and now twenty-first century, composers to the fore in a concentrated festival.

The January Weekends offer an unrivalled retrospective of musicians who have shaped the course of classical music and have recently included Alfred Schnittke, John Adams and Mark-Anthony Turnage.

John Cage Uncaged promises to be one of the most spectacular January Weekends yet with various artists and ensembles joining the BBC Symphony Orchestra for events in the Barbican Hall, foyers and conservatory, St Giles Cripplegate and LSO St Luke's.

Five Barbican Hall concerts feature an extensive range of music by Cage and the BBC Symphony Chorus gives the world premiere of Cage's Variations I for Stephen Montague (1958/90), realised by the dedicatee.

To set Cage in his context there's music by his American predecessors and heroes.

Works that will surprise by Antheil, Cowell and Ives alongside the mainstream as represented by Copland, Schuman and Alan Hovhaness while his contemporaries and successors are represented by the members of the New York School: Brown, Feldman and Wolff.

The weekend also includes a line-up of talks with an introduction to the mushroom garden by leading gardening expert Sefan Buczacki taking place in the weekend's very own mushroom garden.

There will also be a panel discussion examining Cage's legacy and films including Elliot Caplan's portrait of Cage and his relationship with his life-long companion Merce Cunningham and Peter Greenaway's insightful hour-long film.

Uncle Earl rocks

Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones produces group's latest CD

By GREG HAYMES, Staff writer

Click byline for more stories by writer.

First published: Thursday, March 8, 2007

How in the world did an all-female old-timey country music group find themselves working with a legendary British rock star and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer? That's the question I posed to Kristin Andreassen, singer, guitarist, fiddler, dancer and banjo-ukulele player with the old-timey band Uncle Earl, who return to The Egg on Saturday night, following a knockout Capital Region debut there last year.

And who's the rock 'n' roller in question? None other than John Paul Jones, bassist for Led Zeppelin, who produced the new Uncle Earl CD, "Waterloo, Tennessee," scheduled for release on Rounder Records on Tuesday.

Andreassen explains how it happened:

"John Paul Jones is famous, of course, for being a rock star, but he has been a very diverse music listener for his whole life. He was producing pop music before he joined Led Zeppelin, and the funny thing is that John is actually quite a fan of bluegrass music and traditional American music in general.

"A few years ago he decided that he wanted to focus on playing bluegrass mandolin. So he came over to the 'States in the summer of '04 in order to go to the MerleFest in North Carolina. He was kind of following Chris Thile (mandolin master with Nickel Creek) around, and he said he was taking mandolin lessons from Thile, while giving Thile rock star lessons.

"Anyway, they both ended up at the RockyGrass Festival in Colorado that July, which is where we met them as a band. We had this crazy bar gig booked for that night in the town of Lyons, where the festival was held. We were supposed to play at this bar for like six hours or something like that, and then Abbie's (Uncle Earl's singer-banjo player Abigail Washburn) grandfather got sick and she had to go home. So we had no banjo player.

"But then we saw John Paul Jones and Chris Thiele sitting in the audience, so we said, 'Hey you guys wanna come up and play some tunes with us?' They ended up sitting in with us and playing all of these old-time country and fiddle tunes for most of the night. Afterward, John said, 'Hey, I really like your music. If you ever want to do something, give me a call.'

"John was actually our long-shot producer choice. We'd already asked a couple of other producers, who couldn't do it because of scheduling conflicts. So then we just started dreaming big, and thought, 'What about John Paul Jones? Let's just go straight to the top.' Not thinking that in any way he would have the time or really want to work with us, Rayna (Uncle Earl's singer-fiddler Rayna Gellert) sent him an e-mail asking if he wanted to produce our record.

"There was a bit of serendipity going on because, apparently, the day before the e-mail, he had gone into a Tower Records store in London and bought our first CD, 'She Waits for Night.' So he was basically listening to our record the same day that got our e-mail, and he just said, 'Sure, I'll do it.'

"He came over to the States and we spent almost two weeks together doing pre-production. That was probably some of the funnest times that any of us have ever had. Just hanging out in Nashville and playing the music for the record, deciding what belonged on the album, and how it should sound. We went to a festival together, and then came back to make the album.

"We recorded it in 10 days in a residential studio -- one of those places where we not only recorded, but also where we all slept together, ate together and lived together.

"And I think that was the vibe that he was trying to create on the CD, too. We approach the music very collaboratively. We just try to get a pleasing sound out of the songs. We're not a band that's all about the instrumental improvisational soloing. That's not where we put the focus. It's really about good arrangements of the songs and getting a good collaborative groove."

Confirmed: Barbican Centre London June 19, 2005

Thursday 16th, Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th - with the Merce Cunningham Dance Co. at The Barbican Theatre, Silk St, London, UK. - A fantastic series, each night, a different event with choreographed pieces selected by Merce + dice, different décor, different costumes and another trio of musicians. Playing in the pit, we musicians couldn't see the dancers, were outside the quad space surrounding the seated audience and had the instruction to play independantly of each other and be silent for a total of 15 minutes within the 72 we played for. The audience therefore were able to each make their own event out of the chance collisions of mood, pace, activity+/-, pace and timbre. Invariably they couldn't believe this was the case. Astonishing that this kind of performance making work has been going on for 50 years or so yet was received with such new excitement here. The whole project remarkable and an honour to be a part of.

16th:

Musicians: John King, Kaffe Matthews and Philip Selway (Radiohead)

Decor: David Batchelor.

18th

Musicians: Takehisa Kosugi(MD), Kaffe Matthews and Steve Montague

Decor: Darren Almond

19th:

Musicians: Takehisa Kosugi(MD), John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) and Kaffe Matthews

Decor: Enrico David.

"My work has always been in process. Finishing a dance has always left me with the idea, often slim in the beginning, for the next one. I do not think of dance as an object, rather a short stop on the way." Merce Cunningham

Start time: 7.45pm but 3pm on Sunday 19th.

Duration: 70 mins /no interval
