Music http://michiganradio.org en North Woods: Music of the Copper Country http://michiganradio.org/post/north-woods-music-copper-country-0 <p>The <a href="http://www.loc.gov/folklife/lomax/">folklorist Alan Lomax</a> spent nearly two months in the Upper Peninsula in 1938, recording the music of the north woods. He recorded lots of bawdy lumberjack tunes, Finnish songs and polkas. In a note to the Library of Congress, <a href="http://books.google.com/books?id=Dtq6j6n5HXwC&amp;pg=PA108&amp;lpg=PA108&amp;dq=alan+lomax+upper+peninsula+library+of+congress&amp;source=bl&amp;ots=2Q03thv4FL&amp;sig=vxwsC7zhjTSEwyjLQALyD6yJvEo&amp;hl=en&amp;ei=rbN_TurFJOr20gHEqvga&amp;sa=X&amp;oi=book_result&amp;ct=result&amp;resnum=3&amp;ved=0CC4Q6AEwAg#v=onepage&amp;q=material%20enough&amp;f=false">Lomax said</a> &quot;there was material enough in the region for years of work.&quot;</p><p>Today, most of that music has been lost to history. But <a href="http://museum.msu.edu/s-program/mh_awards/awards/2009LR.html">Leslie (Les) Ross, Sr</a> still plays it. Born in 1923 in Eben Junction, Ross is one of the last harmonica players in the country to play in the &quot;<a href="http://www.hiawathamusic.org/lesrosssr.php">lumberjack style.</a>&quot;</p><p>As part of my Stories from the North Woods series, I sat down with Les Ross and percussionist Randy Seppola. With Ross on harmonica and Seppala on <a href="http://playdembones.com/workshops.htm">bones and spoons</a>, they played me a number of old-timey tunes, and Ross talked about his days in Eben Junction and, of course, the harmonica.

Interlochen, in northern Michigan, is one of them.<p>Jessye Norman, Josh Groban, Norah Jones and Lorin Maazel all spent summers at Interlochen when they were younger. But with tuition ranging from $3,000 to $10,000, depending on the campers' age and discipline, does it mean that only rich kids get to follow in their footsteps? It turns out that some extra-resourceful young people are paving their own way. I went to camp to meet them.<p>Interlochen has been around since 1928.

It didn't last long — only two years — but during its life span, MoWest allowed Motown to try out new styles and genres and create one of the most eclectic rosters in the label's long history. Most of MoWest's releases have been out of print the past 40 years, but a new anthology called <em>Our Lives Are Shaped By What We Love: Motown's MoWest Story 1971-1973</em> finally highlights the label's life and legacy.<p>The early 1970s found Berry Gordy and Motown Records in transition.
