A folk favorite - City Pulse

In the 1970s, if you were looking to feel something real and connect and share, the coffee house was where it was at. It was an intimate space chock full of acoustic music, social and political debate and palpable change. It was spaces like these, which emerged in the '60s, that gave singers like Bob Dylan and Joan Baez their starts. ” The only place where you could find a folk jam locally at that time was in the then-new Elderly Instruments on Grand River in East Lansing. That all changed in 1975 with the birth of a concert series inspired by a need for affordable, good folk music. “We were just hoping to kind of snag folk singers on the way between Ann Arbor and Chicago to come do a concert for us,” said Bob Blackman, a longtime leader of the local folk community. The Ten Pound Fiddle is 40 this year. The concert series was created much like a folk song comes together. The Fiddle is a nonprofit music series that also hosts dances and singalongs. It’s a format that has allowed the organization to keep costs down, pay artists well and grow a folk music community. The board members along with an army of nearly 70 volunteers produce around 30 concerts and 10 dances every year. It has a paid membership of more than 300. Over the years the series has drawn such acts as Tom Paxton, Janis Ian, Utah Phillips, The Chenille Sisters, and Suzanne Vega, and this March Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul & Mary). “The Ten Pound Fiddle is one of the pre-eminent clubs in the country,” said Sally Rogers, a nationally known folk singer who got her start with the Fiddle. “It is on every traveling folk musician’s list of places they have played or would like to play. Arising from the actions of a few folk music fans who saw that something was missing in East Lansing, the Fiddle came from humble but ambitious beginnings in the fall of 1974. At the time folk music lovers would hang out in Elderly Instruments... Blackman, a 1970 East Lansing High School graduate, spent his first three years at Kalamazoo College managing the Black Spot, the student coffee house there. He returned to East Lansing, attending Michigan State University for his fourth year of college. Source:
