Dear Lilith Fair 2010

I Have Started a Music Festival 06/30/2010

Dear Lilith Fair,

 

It’s true, I have started a music festival! It is called TINDERBOX! I have not been as active on this blog lately because, as you know, dear Lilith Fair, it is a lot of work to put together such a large event, however I think it is well worth it. The excitement and community it is starting to create keeps growing and growing! As I have been writing letters to you on this blog I have also been communicating with many friends, readers of the blog, and musicians about festivals, performing, community, and so much more. A few months ago it became very clear to me that there needed to be even more space for women musicians to be showcased, and so I decided to actually work hard to help create that space. You can find out more information about TINDERBOX by going to our website at: www.tinderboxmusicfestival.com. You can also find out more about the funds we are trying to raise to both help make the festival happen and give back to organizations that are helping the next generation of women musicians at our Kickstarter page: www.kickstarter.com/projects/123305541/tinderbox-music-festival

 

 

Thanks for helping pave the way for events such as this!

Sincerely,
Alyson 🙂

I am so excited for my shows this week! I will be playing at The Metropolitan Museum of Art (1000 5th Avenue, NY, NY) on Monday, June 21 at 5pm for Make Music New York (http://makemusicny.org/) and at Southpaw (125 5th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY) on Sunday, June 27 at 8pm in Park Slope (http://spsounds.com/calendar/)! The show at The Met will be outside on an upright piano, and the show at Southpaw will be inside as I rock autoharp, synthesizer, casio, glockenspiel, and more!

Dear Lilith Fair,

 

I played music this weekend at FIGMENT– an amazing all-volunteer run festival on Governor’s Island. It turns Governor’s Island into a collaborative art space where each person who attends can interact with each art work (there are so many all around the island). I walked through white silk sheets, painted a picket that became part of an American Dream picket fence maze, had my portrait drawn on the inside of a matchbook by Ohio Mike (see picture), added my childhood dream to a copper wire dream tree, threw around multi-colored rose petals, planted a drawing in a doodle garden, and sang music to listeners who sat on a painted bell. Check out more about FIGMENT here: http://figmentproject.org/2010/

Dear Lilith Fair,

 

Here is a new song on the microkorg called “Ways of the World.” It’s about the world being absurd and the crazy dreams I have where my internal organs are undoing themselves from me. Check it out.

Autoharp + Beatbox 06/01/2010

Filed under: Music — alysongreenfield @ 9:24 PM

Dear Lilith Fair,

 

Here is a video of one of my newest songs on an AUTOHARP, featuring BEATBOXER Chesney Snow. I think an autoharp and a beatboxer are a pretty sweet combination! This song is about traveling on a rope of stars and previously living in a dollhouse.
Enjoy!
