Folk fest director hanging it up
Summerfolk artistic director won't return after this summer
By Bill HENRY
A search begins this week for the next Summerfolk artistic director.
Liz HARVEY- FOULDS, heading into her second festival this summer, has told the Georgian Bay Folk Society board she won't apply to renew her two-year contract.
Trying to program the music festival from her home near Thunder Bay has been frustrating and difficult while teaching high school full-time, HARVEY- FOULDS said in an interview Saturday.
When she took over the part-time contract position in the fall of 2004 from Don BIRD, who resigned after a dispute with the board, HARVEY- FOULDS was teaching part-time and planned to relocate to Owen Sound and teach school here. She said she gave that idea up after realizing she would lose seniority and have no job security.
“I've agonized and tossed and turned over this,” HARVEY- FOULDS said as folk society volunteers set up for the annual Last Chance Saloon concert and competitive audition for a main stage slot this summer.
HARVEY- FOULDS said the working relationship with the board has been “terrific,” there's no controversy around her departure and she regrets leaving after such a short time.
Folk society president Pam HEARN- ERB said the board appreciated HARVEY- FOULDS' early notice, which came weeks ago but was to be made public in a media release today. No public announcement was to be made Saturday during the Last Chance Saloon, which also serves as a volunteer recognition party.
“I think Liz has been good for us. She had big shoes to fill and we think she filled them well,” HEARN- ERB said.
“As a board we're totally fine with it. We appreciated her honesty and we certainly appreciated her being here. We think she's been really good for the organization.&rdquo
HARVEY- FOULDS has programmed the Red Rocks folk festival for several years as a volunteer, and plans to continue that. Her first Summerfolk lineup was the 30th annual last August.
She assumed the role with a goal and a mandate to return the event to its folk roots. She brought back mostly favourite acts from the festival's history, with a mix of newer, younger folk artists and a few veterans who had never played Summerfolk.
She said her plan then, and again this year, was to gather musicians who knew one another or could work well enough together to mix up entertaining and spontaneous music at the informal workshops, which are more vital to the festival's success than spotlight evening performances, she said.
“I tried not to focus on trying to prove anything to anybody, because there was a lot of pressure I realized after the event on me to prove that I could do it. I decided not to think about that, but instead to think about a celebration of the festival's past and the strengths of the community and making the weekend a really wonderful experience.&rdquo
She said she was justifiably criticized by some last year for hiring too few women, not enough country musicians, and especially not enough world music. She's fixed that this year with a lineup announced Saturday night which includes African guitarists, several Cuban and Latin jazz groups, a long list of women songwriters and singers, and several country music performers.
The lineup for the August 18, 19 and 20 festival at Kelso Beach includes:
Plenty of Cuban, African and Latin American acts for world music fans, including The African Guitar, Jane Bunnett and her band of Cuban and Canadian jazz players, a 12-piece band from Cuba, the Latin Jazz band Flamenco Caravan, and Latin jazz singer Eliana Cuevas.
Prairie Oyster and Alan Rhody from Nashville for country fans.
A long list of women including Juno winner Lynn Miles, Mae Moore with Lester Quitzau, blues singer Rita Chiarelli, The Anne Lindsay Band, and Fig for A Kiss, featuring Sahra Featherstone.
Songwriters Bill Bourne; Alex Sinclair of Tamarack; Ottawa-area newcomer Brock ZEEMAN; and both Steve DICKINSON and David SEREDA from the Owen Sound area, as well as Walkerton's Richard KNECHTEL.
Groups include East Coast rockers and award winners Chucky Danger, the Appalachian and Celtic influenced New England trio Crooked Still and Winnipeg's D. Rangers, who mix Bluegrass and western swing with a punk rock attitude.
Rob Elder and Friends, with Pete Devlin and Joel Morelli, who were clear crowd favourites to win a main stage slot with their 15-minute Last Chance Saloon performance Saturday night. It was the second time Elder has won the event.
Georgian Bay Folk Society policies require the board to advertise the artistic director position every two years. Advertisements will go out immediately with plans to fill the position by June and have both new and current artistic directors at this year's festival for a smooth transition.
Both the director and the president said Saturday there are clear and obvious advantages for whoever programs the festival to reside in the local community.
“I don't want to say that they should hire someone who lives in the community. That's not my place to say,” HARVEY- FOULDS said. “I don't think it's necessary to run the festival for the person to be here, but for me, if I'm the artistic director I need to be here. I need to be part of the community.&rdquo
When it became clear moving to Owen Sound was off, she said she bowed out of the position.
HEARN- ERB believes the job should go to someone living in the area.
“But that's not necessarily what the board will decide to do,&rdquo she said Saturday. “I think it's important to be involved in the community. Summerfolk is a community event. It really is and I think it's important for the person that's in charge of that aspect of it to understand the community.&rdquo
Only three of more than 30 candidates to replace BIRD were Grey-Bruce residents.
BIRD lives in Toronto but was originally from Owen Sound and maintained a local connection during his 10-year tenure and was able to attend almost every board meeting, HEARN- ERB said.

Pilot of tiny jet dies in fiery crash
Plane plunges into ground near Ottawa
By Brian LAGHI, Page A11
Ottawa -- A pilot flying the world's smallest jet was killed in a fiery accident near Ottawa yesterday after his aircraft plunged into the ground while practising for the region's annual air show.
The victim was identified by an air show spokeswoman as Scott MANNING of Toronto.
The jet, known as a BD5J Stinger, was moving at high speed and at tree-top height when it appeared to go sideways before crashing into the ground around noon and lighting on fire, Staff Sergeant Monique PERRAS of the Ottawa Police Service said.
She said the 48-year-old pilot died on impact. The Transportation Safety Board will investigate.
A spokeswoman for the air show, Whitney ZELMER, said that Mr. MANNING's wife, Nancy, was on site when the crash occurred. The pilot was in rehearsals for Air Show Ottawa, which takes place in the nearby community of Carp.
At 6 feet 3 inches and 215 pounds, Mr. MANNING's size made him a remarkable sight as pilot of the tiny jet, which is four metres long, had a five-metre wingspan and weighed 202 kilograms. A former professional football player, Mr. MANNING graduated from the University of Waterloo in 1985, according to an alumni website.
There are only six such jets in the world. Mr. MANNING both built and flew the aircraft, which is also known as the James Bond jet because it was used in the movie Octopussy. The jet has also been used by the U.S. government for secret radar testing.
"All was going absolutely according to plan," Ms. ZELMER said. "There was no sign or any indication at all that anything was going wrong."
The jet performs several acrobatic manoeuvres, which include loops, high-speed passes and rolls. It can fly up to 480 kilometres an hour, even though its engine measures only 30 centimetres in diameter, is 60 centimetres long and weighs 32 kilograms.
"Although the family did not want to speak, they were very adamant that I let media know that Scott loved aviation," Ms. ZELMER said. "He was doing what he loved."
Ms. ZELMER said the show will go on this weekend as scheduled. The crash did not take place close to spectators, Sgt. PERRAS said.
Another pilot at the Carp Airport said the Stinger is notoriously hard to fly. "They do have a very high crash rate," John LOBB told CFRA radio.

ADILMAN, Sid, 68
Writer was a one-man Canada Council
Canadian Press, Page S11
Toronto -- Toronto Star entertainment writer Sid ADILMAN, widely regarded as one of the greatest champions of Canadian movies, music, books and television, died of heart failure at his Toronto home on October 14. He was 68.
"He was like the Canada Council for the Arts, only he worked for the Toronto Star," said Maureen O'DONNELL, a communications consultant and long-time friend. "He didn't hand out money as they do, he handed out care, he handed out wanting us to be the best we could possibly be."
Mr. ADILMAN was long considered one of the most influential cultural journalists in Canada. "It was so much easier for us to just roll over and let the American cultural and celebrity juggernaut roll right over us, but he would stick his pen in the cultural dike," recalled the Star's media critic, Antonia ZERBISIAS.
In 2002, Mr. ADILMAN retired from the Star. He had joined the paper in 1960, but left in 1963 for the now-defunct Toronto Telegram but returned in 1971. In the 1970s and 1980s, he was the Canadian editor of the trade paper Variety and served as the Star's entertainment editor from 1986 to 1991.
He is survived by his wife Toshiko and sons Mio and Nobu.
