Riley Calcagno (Wants to Hang Out Backstage) by Cameron DeWhitt

Welcome to Get Up in the Cool: Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends! This week’s friend is Riley Calcagno of The Onlies, and more recently of Vivian Leva and Riley Calcagno. We recorded this interview at the East Vancouver Old Time Social about a month and a half ago in front of a live audience, and because it was part of the festival, our interview was a bit shorter than a normal episode; we didn’t want to cut into the show upstairs. But I promise the time is densely packed with great music and conversation that more than makes up for its brevity.

Tunes we'll play:
Old Man Gone
Lost Girl
Sal Won’t You Marry Me
Irish Polka

Welcome to Get Up in the Cool: Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends! This week’s friend is Mark Simos, fiddler and professor at Berklee College of Music. I visited him in his home back in February when I took my Boston trip. I didn’t know Mark at all prior to our session, but both Mark Kilianski and Adam Hurt recommended him, so my expectations were high. And I wasn’t disappointed! Mark’s a fantastic fiddler and he has a lot of ideas about what music is and why it’s important; traditional music especially. So, basically the perfect Get Up in the Cool guest. It was nice to not feel like I was being self-indulgent when I wanted to wax philosophical about fiddle tunes, he was right there with me. But, don’t get the wrong idea, this is by no means an overly talky episode. Mark curated a great jam of great versions of great tunes, with an emphasis on effective, intentional simplicity. I’m really excited for you to hear it!

Stick around after the jam and I’ll tell you where to hear more of Mark’s music and possibly study with him. Then, for those of you who are interested, I’ll tell you how to support Get Up in the Cool and feel super good about yourself and also get exclusive bonus content. But first, here’s my interview and jam with Mark Simos. Enjoy!

In Memory of Thornton Spencer by Cameron DeWhitt

Welcome to Get Up in the Cool: Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends! This week’s episode is a rerun, because I’m on vacation in Oregon with my family, but I thought this would be a great opportunity to remember Thornton Spencer. We recorded this interview and jam with him and his family last spring, and Thornton passed on Nov. 25th at the age of 82 after a short battle with cancer. I am so glad that I got the chance to record him when I did. When I set out to make this show, it was just a pretense to invite myself over to people’s houses and play music with them; I didn’t think I would be confronting mortality, or comforting the dying; Thornton’s son Kilby told me that the day before he passed, he listened to this episode twice, and it was the last time he saw him grinning and talking. I still feel pretty humbled and pensive about the whole thing. But mostly, I’m just relieved that I got to meet him and catch a little bit of his music and his story.

Tunes we’ll play:
Sugar hill
Johnson boys
Lost Indian
Eighth of January
Stagger Lee
John Brown’s Dream

This interview was recorded in August at Joel’s house in Portland, OR, when I was in town to see my family. We talked about how OT is the most punk-rock genre and our mutual love for crooked tunes.
