Fay Victor, ‘Barn songs’ featuring cellist Marika Hughes VS a painting I saw at the DeYoung Museum of San Francisco today called ‘The Cello Player’

Sometimes these posts are just indicative of what someone might write.


Maybe I will add as a coda other photos I took at the museum today: a radish help up next to the Oldenburg paperclip; the shapeshifter Innuit piece, bear-man thing; the re-making of the Hawaiian exotic Captain Cook 1804 Wallpaper that by a modern female and likely AOA artist seems to feature some dudes goofing for their ladies the act of birthing. The natives in the wallpaper with their European mis-remembered dancing styles. — I was gonna contrast that with a John Kelly naked wahini drawings book I found in my Dad’s attic; a lightbending effect thru the building; Terry’s shadow over a crack in the Goldsworthy from 2005; that’s bout it.

Marika I saw and met thru Tin Hat Trio or Tin Hat or Tin Hat Trio Plus. I might have met her at the Cub with Austin Willacy, I mean booked. She’s been in a lot of things. I think I had noticed something else by Fay Victor, who sings in a unique style. I also like the new Tierney Sutton cd, on movie songs.


Terry thought he was making the cello

edit to ad: it’s Marika’s barn!

Hey, Marika:
I have a new concert series in Palo Alto.
I don’t recall if you played in my previous serie, either with Tin Hat or maybe Austin Willacy, but I had seen you and heard you and met you a couple times.
I was just writing (superficially) in my (frivolous) blog, about you and Fay Victor. When I started to copy over the blurb, from today’s I was so surprised and happy to discover that “the barn” is actually your barn!
Any time if fits your schedule to come out and play my new series, Mitchell Park community center, you are invited.
I pay $&^%# for headliners or $&@# per player for combos that are democratic or jointly led. Whichever fits you.
In your case, because I’m a big fan, I would also throw in a flight and a room.
In my blog I was tieing it to a painting I saw at The DeYoung called “The Cellist”.
I was also fixing to write about Zoe Keating and Imogene Heap — both of whom played in my Cubberley series, years ago.
Also, I married a gal named (the artist) Terry Acebo Davis and we live in a townhouse in Palo Alto downtown and share a wall with an Israeli guy named H_ and his new significant other is a cellist we call (—-) but I don’t have the ear to tell, though I hear her, when she’s in town, practicing, if she is soloist or just a regular player – -she is from Canada, and I didn’t catch her last name. What I mean to say is I am channeling cello so to speak, so having this strong reaction to your work with Fay Victor – which I had heard about already somehow.

i am going to a Allison MIller show tonite at Stanford. I don’t know if you play with her, but she plays with Ben Goldberg who plays with tin hat so there. I will probably ask her if she knows you. I’m guessing: of course!!
