[Lucy K News] Lucy Kaplansky Update 3/01
Hi guys! Hope
spring is actually warm where you are, it's absolutely freezing
here in New York.
I'm almost finished
with my new album. My pals Jennifer Kimball and Richard Shindell
each recorded the most gorgeous harmonies last week, and I'm still
planning to get a couple of more friends to sing harmonies in the
next couple of weeks. And we had Jon Herington come in and play
some electric guitar last week, and what he played was absolutely
stunning, and worked perfectly with what Duke Levine and Larry Campbell
had already played. I even started joking that I'd have to call
the album "Guitar Gods" because those guys were all so
amazing. We're still planning for an August or September release.
by the way, was on the Academy Awards playing guitar with Bob Dylan,
he was the one standing to the left of Dylan, and he looked like
such a rock star.)
Here's a first
in my life: I'm now a character in a comic strip. There's a guy
in Madison, WI who writes a daily comic strip in a U. of Wisconsin
paper, and he's made me part of it. He's got a website, so you can
me (I'm in a bunch of them, but I know I'm in March 23-25
if you look in his archives). And it really looks like me!
I made a guest
appearance at Richard Shindell's show in Mamaroneck, NY when he
was taping for a live album with his band. We actually sang a Bruce
Springsteen song ("Fourth of July, Asbury Park") which
I practically forced Richard to sing because I wanted to sing the
harmony, and we sang a lot of other stuff, and I heard the tape
the next day it sounds awesome.
A lot of people
have asked where they can find guitar chords for my songs. I don't
have any thing published, but here's some web sites that have some
of them written out:
I sang harmony
on John Gorka's beautiful new album, "The Company You Keep",
which was just released a couple of weeks ago. Also, I've been told
that the Bryan Ferry album I sang on will be released in September.
And the Bob
Dylan tribute album that I'm on will be out in May, but I'll have
copies to sell in the next few weeks (I sang "It Ain't Me Babe",
one of my all-time favorite songs). Others on the album include
Greg Brown, John Gorka, Cliff Eberhardt, Suzzy and Maggie Roche,
and Eliza Gilkyson (who's fantastic, by the way, if you haven't
where I'll be in the next few weeks:
Auditorium, W. Hartford, CT
4/28 Stamford Center for the Arts, Stamford, CT
4/29 Iron Horse Music Hall, Northampton, MA
5/3 Cecile Goldman Theater, Washington, D.C.
5/19 The Bottom Line, New York, NY
(212) 228-6300 this is a co-bill w/the great Buddy and Julie
Miller, and I'll have my band
That's it for
now. Thanks again for all the wonderful e-mails!

Cruise to Clean Up Corruption
Friend and Supporter:
From May 12
through May 20, 2001, Judicial Watch is embarking upon its annual
"Cruise to Clean Up Corruption." This voyage aboard Holland
America's MS Maasdam will be a fantastic journey filled with fascinating,
never-before-told tales and stories from not only Tom Fitton and
me, but our clients and guests.
to Judicial Watch, we will give an account of what has gone on through
the last eight years such as you have never heard.
one of the Clintons' female victims who alerted the world to Bill
Clinton, will detail not only her own sad relationship with the
former President and Mrs. Clinton, but will also entertain us in
the ship's lounge. As you may know, Gennifer is an accomplished
Jack Daly, the
Navy Lieutenant Commander who was attacked by Russian lasers over
Puget Sound, will fill us in on his saga in fighting against Russian
infiltrators on U.S. territory.
the "Fisherman," will explain his religious experience
in saving Elian Gonzalez and his legal struggle to hold Janet Reno
and the entire Clinton Administration accountable for the crimes
they committed against not only little Elian but the entire Little
famous movie actress and Judicial Watch supporter, and who formerly
played the girlfriend of J.R. Ewing on the TV hit show, "Dallas,"
will fill us in on how conservatives exist in Hollywood, as well
as her many experiences in fending off J.R. Ewing a Clinton
the loquacious and amusing managing editor of Insight Magazine and
the person who uncovered more scandals during the Clinton-Gore years
except for Judicial Watch (i.e., Paul exposed the sale of graves
at Arlington National Cemetery for campaign contributions, as well
as the early seeks of the e-mail scandal), will entertain in his
usual "no holds barred" manner.
renowned WorldNetDaily.com columnist, the first female television
sportscaster (for the Miami Dolphins), and co-anchor of The Judicial
Watch Report radio show, will provide perspective on the political
events of today and what it means to be a religious conservative.
Bob Rieth, my own personal pastor and founder of Media Fellowship
International, will not only give us his views on the decline of
ethics today in America, but how we can bring back a revival. And,
for those who would like to participate, Rev. Rieth will hold Bible
study classes aboard ship.
Watch "Cruise to Clean Up Corruption" is something that
most other groups have never attempted and would not dare to try,
using such a wide range of speakers and clients. Last year's event
was a rousing success, and many are returning.
to travel to Playa del Carmen, Mexico, and Ocho Rios, Jamaica, Judicial
WatchOs band of merry men and women will leave a flag in Georgetown,
Grand Caman Island. By the time we are done, we will have renamed
this tropical island, the "Grand Klayman Island."
Last but not
least, start dieting right away because the food on these cruises
is fantastic. The "Cruise to Clean Up Corruption"will
be an adventure to remember!
We can't wait
to see you. Bring your friends and family.
