Split Tree announcements are made by email only to those who are interested and anyone wishing to be emailed notices may subscribe by emailing sid [@] splittree.org. STF prefers to pay musicians and teachers instead of the post office and therefore we do not use regular mail. We use small dance email lists sent to us and also names of people who have asked to be on our general mailing list. We also depend on friends to pass on our news to others in a variety of formats. If you do not want to be emailed about STF activities, please send an email to "removename [@] splittree.org" with "remove" in the subject line; send from the email address to which the email was sent or include the address to be removed or changed.
Outtakes March 2011
March 12, 2011: Well, friends, the energy for another gathering of fools is not in the cards this year, as THE FOOL in the tarot card is standing still and not about to step over the edge alone. Some Split Tree Live Waltzes CDs remain; see below for ordering info.--Sid
Feb 4, 2011: We are considering a Fool's Festival gathering the first weekend of April, 1-3, and would like to hear from you very soon if interested in participating in any way, something like the Burning Man Festival. We may celebrate, with music and movement, breaking new ground and paths, and clearing old life debris, by a ritual burning of the old split tree, now mainly the still standing trunk. The new 8,000 square foot barn shed might be the center of activities but the entire 200 acres is our playground. Camping, food, hot showers, friends, jamming--imagination unlimited.
