two very strang points. The fir st is the wonderful selection of tunes . M:l6t of flIj old favorites , Arkansas Traveller , Cluck Old Hen , sally NIn , Old Joe Clark , St . Anne ' s Reel , sally Goodin , SOl dier ' s Joy, and 'I\lrkey in the Straw, a r e here . (Rag~ Annie and f'lop-eared M.1le are ClOruIPicuously absent , bJt then iKJ11eOIle \IIh) '-Onts this I:xxlk should already know these . } f\Jnny thing , your arranqe:oents of rtIj old favorites are different frOOl rrrt arrangements. By no IN!ans is this a criticism. ~t it IreMJI is that I have I!JOIIe new "licks" to throw into rtIj old tunes. with a total of 41 tunes, I aho.Ild be able to keep bJsy for a while . 'I1'le IItCIOI'Id strong point is that the tunes are given in t he key that fiddlers usually play in . A good subdtle for the bcxJk ai9ht be , "sell-oetenM for D.l1ciner . " The clllcilllist with this repert o ire, especially if he/she observes the tunings. will l}ain the respect of any good old-tlJre fiddler Other good points are the marginal notes that give tuning hints, playing hints, and .are insight into the roots of these fine old tunes . The only weak point I see , if you could call it that , is the lack of guitar chords for all the tunes. 'nils could be especially helpful to "advanoed beginner " students . (As you say an p . ~ , the Ix:ok is not reccmnended foc begirning beginrwra . ) AlSJ, I think 9 out of 10 fiddlers will say that the repens have been left out of "Arkansas Traveller .

The sixth arnJal Kindred GatheOI'l9 D..Ilc~r

Festival was held in August , 1980 on Oc"cas Island in the San Juans. 'ft1e San Juans are a ~utiful chain of islands in the PucJet SOUrd . The festival was hosted by Niels and Sidnee Andersen on lancI loaned by R)bert and Meg O::nnocs. It began with a canpfire on August 7th and oontinued through the 10th. Workshops were held by ftiJert Force . Albert d'OstlCHr..> , Neal Hel..1JMn , Balla ~skY . Ji. 9J.crill and many others. (:pen Mlke Night w.lS Q'I the eighth and the CXlnc:ert Night was held ttl the ninth . KG VI this year . was smaller and I!I)re intimate than in ywlrs past . There were new faces . old faces , dirt begirners and Mace- players. ~ festival seemed lIIXe relalCed this year perhaps die to the peaceful nature of the San Juans. Arw:Ither interestinq point was that the general ability of the average Cestival participant has

qott.en nuch better . Neils and Sidnoo outdid themselws this year and did an extraocdinary job with [ocxi and organization . The Kindred Gathering

is intentionally a loosely ocganized phenareron, yet vw[)' year ~ seems to have a last ain.Jte shot of energy and mgically everything falls into place. IOrk crNS aeem.~ to fall in place and at the end of the festival the land was spotless. One supreme highlight of the festival was the cav.ors' and their friends who took all interested dulcirrer players sailing around the Puqet Sound. After days of 'oÂŤ)rkshops . late night perfonM!'lCes and a strenuous garre of volleyball , an afternoon sailing in the sun IIC!eII1Cd just right.
