Wonderful Gift Ideas

Gift Giving Tips
Wow, I think that somebody sped up time, seriously there's not enough time in a day to get everything done anymore. And have you noticed how quickly special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries sneak up on you anymore? It's nuts! The only thing you can do is be organized, plan ahead and get an early start shopping.

How can you be more organized when it comes to gifting, well here is a brilliant gift ideas tip from my mom. She kept a simple journal that had the names of family, friends and loved ones. In the journal she kept a log of their general interests, greeting cards and presents both given and received by them and any possible hints and gift wishes we casually drop at the dinner table prior to an impending holiday such as Christmas or Easter,  that way when it came time to shop for presents she was as prepared as you can get, she always seemed to know the most perfect gift ideas for a particular person. She is no longer with us, but she passed along to me her talent for finding the perfect gift for her loved ones, and I'm happy to share it with you.

Gift Ideas
If you are serious about mastering the art of great gift giving consider first your motivation for gifting. Now consider the relationship between you and the person your shopping for. If you don't know much about the person, you'll need to do a little research start by asking his or her friends and family members what would be good a good gift idea. If the person has been particularly unimpressed by store bought presents in the past, perhaps a gift that you make yourself or just the gift of your time is the best gift option.

Then there's the personalized gift craze right now, one of today's trendiest gifts are those that are customized especially for the recipient. Presents may be engraved, embroidered, silk screened, or otherwise feature the persons name, monogram or other message. Personalized gifts have evolved a long way in a short time too, not long ago the extent of personalized gifts that were available personalized were limited to grainy photos on coffee mugs, mouse pads and t-shirts. Not any more nowadays there's some wonderful gift ideas with that personalized touch.

Giving a regular ole' store gift card or cash says, "I really didn't know what to give you, but I felt like I should give you something". I hate to say it but if, after you follow these tips, you still can't decide on the right gift for a person, then a gift card may be your best option.

A new photo posted at Roger Kellison's web site

Roger Kellison photograph of red venetian blinds/>
I was at an art exhibit recently in Carrboro, NC and I bought this photograph from a wonderful local photographer I had never met before. He's new to our area, having relocated from the American Southwest, where he took many gorgeous pictures of old Americana, especially abandoned buildings once full of hope and optimism.

Turned out, Roger didn't have a website so I just decided to make him one. Click the image above to see Roger Kellison's photos at flickr; visit the Roger Kellison, photographer website to order some postcard samplers of his work or any of the photos on his flicker site.

Looking for a comprehensive list of Yiddish songs on Youtube captioned in English? Of course you are!

You know how the marketers say, "Go Niche" ?? Have I overdone it?

I've been concentrating on recording Yiddish songs of the 1920s and 1930s, the "Yiddish Jazz Age." And since they're full of jokes and most people don't speak Yiddish, I'm captioning the songs in animated videos on YouTube.

Click the picture to get to my playlist of Yiddish songs with English subtitles.

Concerts of Yiddish theater music in North Carolina

In connection with my years-long research project into rarely heard or almost extinct Yiddish theater songs from the 1920s and 1930s - and the two cds of the material we recorded this year - I've set up two concerts in December 2013 in the RTP area, in Durham NC and Chapel Hill / Carrboro NC.

The first show is on Thursday December 19, at 7:30 pm, at Carolina Meadows (100 Carolina Meadows, Chapel Hill, NC). This one hour concert features Jane Peppler (vocals, fiddle, concertina), Randy Kloko (vocals), Roger Spears (piano), and Ken Bloom (clarinet, domro, guitar). The show is one hour in length. Tickets are $5 in advance or at the door.

The second show is on Saturday, December 21, at 7:30 pm, at the ArtsCenter (300 E Main St, Carrboro, NC). Along with the four musicians mentioned above, the rest of world music band Mappamundi will be joining in - Jim Baird on acoustic bass and guitar, and Beth Holmgren on vocals - and also pianist Aviva Enoch. This show is 90 minutes long; tickets are $7 in advance or $10 at the door.

For more information and to buy tickets in advance, visit our Cabaret Warsaw website. Thanks! Here are some samples:

Scary murder ballad: if you don't pay the guys who work for you, bad things may happen

Lamkin is a wonderful old story song about a "Lord of the Manor" who gets a castle built and then stiffs the mason and sails away leaving his wife, daughter, and baby behind to face the piper, so to speak. I loved putting this song together out of three separate versions of the tune and I loved writing about it. The Celtic duo the Pratie Heads (me and Bob Vasile) recorded this a couple years ago on our album "We Did It! (Songs of People Behaving Badly). You can hear it free at our Bandcamp site:
