17160The Starlight Circle Players' opened the Song Challenge to Anyone and Everyone
- Nov 10, 2006Hi -- Because we opened the Song Challenge to Anyone and Everyone, I'm
sending this to all of you here & am asking all of you to send this to
anyone you know who would enjoy this Challenge:
For greater amusement, The Starlight Circle Players have challenged the
singer/songwriters and musicians who will attend to re-arrange (in their
own musical styles and using the original lyrics) either of the following
songs: "15 Men on a Deadmen's Chest" or "Drunken Sailor" (or a combination
of both). The songs will be performed between courses and recorded on CD.
Send a recording to TSCP c/o Lezlie Kinyon, 2998 Shasta Rd. Berkeley, Ca
94708 -- we'll ask you to sign a waiver & add you to the CD, "Pyrate
Lunacy". People on the CD get a copy gratis, and friends & relatives can
buy one through the website around Christmas.
If you are in the Bay Area, you can perform your interpretation/entry at the
Fundraiser, "A Pyrate Winter Holiday" December 1, contact us for details.
There will be a prize for "Best of the Evening". If you need us to record
you, contact us to make arrangements.
I was inspired by a CD called The Money or the Gun, in which a lot of
musicians rewrote Stairway to Heaven, and I thought: how really fun and
goofy. We've all heard the Chieftains "Drunken Sailor" on their CD 'Deep
Blue Sea' and the thrasher version of "Yo Ho Ho" on the radio. The
challenge is the old lyrics and melody and ones own musical style, be it
full-on Wagnerian aria, a Broadway show tune, country, Dylanesque folk,
60s Haight Ashbury rock, death metal, hip hop, tango, Bollywood, or
Balkan dance music. There is a prize for the best of the evening. Musicians
should be sure to call us if they have questions, and let us know in advance
if they will use electric instruments, as well need to accommodate for them
in the recording process.
