Patti - thanks ever so for the report - can't wait to see him later this month over here.

I wondered if you might get to hear 'Vertigo' the co-write with Antje, from her new CD - a lovely haunting song.

Sorry to hear about the (continuing) snow - I think that I too would be fed up with it if it had gone on for so long.

Well Jela I am happy that Mark is making it to UK but just looking at the dates again I wish it was a few days later as Antje will be having her CD release shows at Passim's at the same time, and I think it would have been possible that Mark showed up for them at some time.

Also, if it was a day or two later, you would be rested after SXSW!!

Yes - got back from SXSW yesterday lunchtime and went to see Mark in the evening. I will post later about the show but just letting you know that the website is down because the 5 yr domain name has expired and Mark can't remember his password. He will sort it out when he gets home and it should be up and running by the end of the week.

Lots to tell you about his visit. Catch you all later. I will also post about SXSW.

Gotta' get to work.....

Well we made it home from Austin safe and sound arriving back on Monday lunchtime and got ourselves to the Mark Erelli gig in the evening at the Ravenswood, which is only 5 miles from home. Lots of newbies in the audience including a guy I work with, Mark really went down well and gained a lot of new fans. Two set gig - the full setlist:

Columbus, Ohio (new song)
Not Alone
Unravelled
Volunteers
Five Beer Moon
Once
Kingdom Come (co-write with Stu Hanna and Rachael McShane from Darwin Song Project)
Baltimore
Imaginary Wars (on mandolin)
Evening's Curtain
Here and Now
Troubadour Blues
Farewell Ball
Tired Eyes
Passing Through
The Only Way
Seasons Pass (request from promoter, Martin)

Great show - he's coming back in August, for Shrewsbury Folk Fest, the Green Note London and hopefully a few other dates.

The Darwin Song Project was a great success and will be featured on BBC Radio 4 tomorrow morning at 11.00 am (7.00 am Boston time) and I’ll be listening in. There will also be a CD release.

Article about Mark appearing at TwickFolk on Sunday which you might like to read is at Mark in the news

I get to see him again in July at WoodyFest and in August back over here - Woo Hoo!

Karen - enjoy the weekend show - I really like Josh Ritter too. Look forward to your report

Jela,

So glad you made it back to the UK in time to catch Mark! Thanks for the wonderful report and the link to the article. (I love that picture of Mark used in the article.) I'll try to get a few pictures this Sunday night and will be sure to post a report as well. :)

The venue was so not what I can tolerate in regards to listening to music that I left after Mark's set. Josh Ritter's band joined Mark on stage for the last wo songs. Mark seemed really pumped to be performing for the full-house of Josh fans and sounded great. The setlist:

Columbus, Ohio (guessing on the title)
Not Alone
Unravel
Volunteers
Shadowland
Troubadour Blues
Kingdom Come (new song about Charles Darwin)
Five Beer Moon
Baltimore

I was not able to get any pictures.

Thanks for the report and photo - that's started my morning off very nicely thank you!

What a nice set of songs, I love that new one 'Columbus, Ohio' and the Darwin Song 'Kingdom Come' is being hailed as one of the best from that project, by people who went to the full concert and heard all the songs.

Per Usual, Mark has written another informative, witty monthly newsletter. Nice to hear how the normal things in life are.. well normal for him too...


The download of the month is Columbus Ohio.. nice enough song, liked it when I first heard it performed live, but as he explains, it could be about anywhere in America, he just needed a 3 syllable town and a 2 syllable state...though I suppose a 2 syllable town and a 3 syllable state would work too :wink:

thanks for the link Paddy, and I'm sure Mark appreciates it too. Check out what he has to say in his latest newsletter below!!

He wants pictures!! Richard and Monica I KNOW you have a couple of great ones..

WEB UPDATES: I get so wrapped in making music I sometimes forget to actually let you know about it! To that end, I've updated a few parts of my website. My discography contains some new entries and while it's far from an exhaustive list of my guest appearances on others' records any means, it's getting more complete. I also added a section for pictures taken by fans. If you have a good picture of me (and I'll be the judge of that!) that you'd like to see on the site, send it to me at mark@markerelli.com. Lastly, there have been some newly added YouTube videos, including one of myself and Josh Ritter performing his encore unamplified at the edge of the stage a couple months ago. Just go to YouTube, search my name and you'll find it.

When I first heard this song (I think it was during an interview Mark did which was a podcast) I was convinced that it was a co-write with Ron Sexsmith as I knew that he'd written a song with him - I was wrong but it definitely sounds like a Ron Sexsmith influenced song to me.

Yes I do like Ron Sexsmith as well!

Folks,

For those of you who don't receive Mark's newsletter, the Darwin Song Project CD is available online at Fish Records.

You can also watch a video of one of Mark's song from the project - "Mother of Mysteries" - on YouTube and/or watch a video interview at Spiral Earth.

I envy you Jela.... I listened to the You Tube version today, it came out great.. it is the professional footage of the actual DVD ( I think)

I guess Mark isn't planning on having it at his shows, so I am going to order myself a copy...

I am looking forward to the New Bedford Folk Festival Saturday and SUnday... Ellis, Antje, John Gorka (on the same stage as Antje at one point) Richard Shindell, Johnathan Edwards.. so many favorites :D , except....Mr Mark..hmmm I'm thinking he is celebrating his Independence this 4th of July..perhaps on Cape Cod... :wink:

I'm listening to Jake Armerding right now performing live on WUMB....and he just made some very complimentary statements about Mark Erelli. Evidentally Mark is playing with Jake this weekend....and Jake said he gets Mark whenever he can. :-)

Mark is in the UK this weekend and performing at Shrewsbury Folk Festival (solo on Friday and with the Darwin Song Project on Saturday) as well as a London date on Sunday at Green Note.

The festival, for the first time ever are going to be streaming main stage performances live across the Internet and across the globe. I am so pleased that Mark's solo set tomorrow at 20.45 our time and 15.45 EST your time is being filmed so you can watch it too.

Shrewsbury Folk Festival

We are not going to the festival but are going to the London show. Weekend is lookin' good!

Have just finished watching the Internet stream of Mark's set at Shrewsbury and it was just great! He played 11 songs and seemed to go down really well with the crowd.

It's great exposure for him and hopefully he's made lots of new fans from this appearance.

9. Pilgrim Highway

Second set:
10. Here and Now
11. Bend In The River (my request)
12. Once (dedicated to his son, told funny story about how many times he's sung 'Wheels on the Bus' for him in different styles - folk, bluegrass, even opera!)
13. Man of the Family (our friend Paul's request)
14. Basement Days (New)
15. August (New - this month's mp3 download - he makes one available each month on his website)
16. The Only Way

Encore
17. Here at the Right Time (Josh Ritter song - getting in practice for the forthcoming UK tour in Josh's band, supporting Ray LaMontagne. Josh is doing a few shows of his own as well so I'm hoping that when we see them in Brighton (sold-out) on September 15th, Mark is the opener - fingers crossed!).

More good news - Mark looks like coming back to the UK in the Spring :) and is going to be working on a new CD soon.

..now you know how I feel when you guys in the US get to see my favourites on your doorsteps!

In my other life, I'd be permanently camped out at Passim and the Cactus Cafe in Austin.

It was a great evening :)

My daughter was watching the show Skins tonight, it is the American version of a BBC show. Anyway, she screams and says " mom, its Mark Erelli's song, Imaginary Wars" wahoo.. it was... I guess England is really coming round on Mark!! Jela did you have anything to do with this :wink:

Taylor has the show on DVR, so it probably aired in the last week, but she says she will get all the details of its original airing and if the song was in the original BBC show. I guess they have a few versions of the show..it will air again this Saturday 4-5 pm on BBC America, the song is about 50 minutes into the show..

Congratulations Mark!!
