Oil City Singer/Songwriter Festival

Gypsy Dave's MySpace page announces:
May, 26 2007 at The Downtown Oil City Singer/songwriter Festival, Oil City, Pennsylvania :
Details TBA, but Jerome Wincek and I are putting together a fantastic festival comprised of all the young singer/songwriters that are making their way in the tri-state area. More info soon!

Sounds like we should all save the date.

More well deserved love for the Oil City Arts Revitalization effort.

Venango Campus has listed their cultural events for the Spring including their stellar film series.

The Rick Dan Band and others show up at the Meadville Council on the Arts this weekend.

A Bradford family showed up on NPR earlier this week.

NPR is also holding an Oscar speech contest.

Even writers (or is it especially writers) have urban myths:
We have read your manuscript with boundless delight. If we were to publish your paper, it would be impossible for us to publish any work of lower standard. And as it is unthinkable that in the next thousand years we shall see its equal, we are, to our regret, compelled to return your divine composition, and to beg you a thousand times to overlook our short sight and timidity.

Excuse my drool at the prospect of this huge used book sale.

Gypsy Dave is right -- actually, May 26 is the date of a community-wide celebration of the arts in Oil City that will center on the unveiling of several pieces of public art by Dave Poulin and the Seventh Street Elementary School kids, a full schedule of performances by singers/songwriters, and who knows what else? -- we're sitting down at the drawing board in the next week or two to plan the "what else." Jerome Wincek has stepped forward as the music man, Tom Huston is the person who oversaw the development of the bronze sculptures -- we hope it will be a knock-down all-day party! Look for more details soon --
