Burning Man — Archiving the Ephemeral

From The Kitchen Sisters | Part of the Fugitive Waves series | 18:58


On the night of Summer Solstice 1986, Larry Harvey and Jerry James built and burned an eight-foot wooden figure on San Francisco's Baker Beach surrounded by a handful of friends. Burning Man was born. 
This weekend, the 34th annual Burning Man gathering begins to assemble on a vast dry lake bed in Nevada's Black Rock Desert, the nomadic ritual's home since 1990. An estimated 80,000 people will come.   
How do you archive an event when one of it's driving principles is "leave no trace?" Where The Burning Man is in fact burned? What is being kept and who is keeping it? The Kitchen Sisters take a journey into the archives of this legendary gathering to find out.

Stephen R Webb

Book_of_taliesyn_small I was really planning on doing two sets this week, but each song seemed to flow so naturally out of the one before it that I just couldn't bring myself to dam up the stream of tunes. So prepare yourself for an amazing musical journey, starting, appropriately enough, with the Who. As for the rest of the show see http://thehermitrambles.blogspot.com/ for the complete playlist.

WoodSongs (Series)

Produced by WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour

Most recent piece in this series:

WoodSongs 987: Nick Moss Band and Joan Shelley

From WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour | Part of the WoodSongs series | 59:00


NICK MOSS BAND featuring DENNIS GRUENLING have been on a winning streak since 2016 when the blues guitar virtuoso and and harmonica wizard joined forces. Their self-made lucky streak continued into early 2019, when down-and-dirty guitarist Moss – a 30-year veteran of Chicago’s take-no-prisoners rough and tumble West and South Side blues clubs – won the Blues Music Award (BMA) for Traditional Blues Male Artist Of The Year. Gruenling, one on the hottest players on the scene today, took the BMA for Best Instrumentalist – Harmonica. And now, with the odds heavily in their favor, they unleash their dynamic new album, ‘Lucky Guy!’ on Alligator Records.  

JOAN SHELLEY is a songwriter and singer who lives near Louisville, KY, not far from where she grew up.  She draws inspiration from traditional and traditionally-minded performers from her native Kentucky, as well as those from Ireland, Scotland, and England, but she’s not a folksinger. Her disposition aligns more closely with that of, say, Roger Miller, Dolly Parton, or her fellow Kentuckian Tom T. Hall. Joan’s last record placed on year-end lists at NPR Music, Aquarium Drunkard and Uncut Magazine, among others, and led to an appearance on Later… with Jools Holland, cover stories with Acoustic Guitar Magazine and Fretboard Journal, and more.

WoodSongs Kids: Central Music Academy’s Bluegrass Ensemble from Lexington, Kentucky performs.
