Here's an email I wrote yesterday:

Dear Mr. Moore,

I just got your email askin' for ideas of what the next step should be. I think it's time for a Folk music renaissance! Not the boring singer-songwriter b.s., but the stuff with roots of some kind. Roots that wind through the golden skeletons of MLK, Eleanor Roosevelt, John Brown, Chief Joseph. Relevant roots--think the Carter Family, Leadbelly, Hank Williams, Sam Cooke, Aretha, Dylan, Lauryn Hill.

Someone with a guitar. Or piano. Or two turntables, five mics, and a tambourine. Whatever it takes.

Musicians have been known to destroy armies with a sneer and/or pelvic hip thrust.

Let me know if I can be of service.

Creatively yours, Chris

Hi Sandman, I'm Sam, your NCC fan who spoke to you after the show. I work at Normandale and pretty much all the Wednesday performers' experiences are less than great (or should I say it probably sucks for all of you?). You write really funny stuff and I'm enjoying your album "Live and Suspicious". You should try the 7th Street Entry, Lee's, Hexagon Bar, or the 400 down here in the Cities and Ralph's Corner in Moorhead. It's good you're out there shaking things up in ND.
