Leon Boots record in the works!

Posted by Ralph E. Cook on Mar 10, 2013 in Music, Recording

Dear Campers,

Work continues on the new Leon Boots record which the cards are saying will be released sometime in 2013.  Darin & Aaron have been writing & playing music together since before they were old enough to drive and in the early days they would travel to practice by boat across the lake.  Over the years these boys have shared multiple projects including amazing bands like: “Aaron America” and “United”.  We feel so very fortunate to be assisting with the Leon Boots project.  I have posted a few works in progress from the new album at:

https://soundcloud.com/abandoned-scout-camp

2013 has already been one hell of a year and we’ll be to the Spring Equinox in 10 days!  Do you have your intentions ready for the ancient new year: the Spring Equinox?  Trust me: this is the REAL time to set your goals for the year.  Together let’s keep the magic flowing!  Our gifts and abilities are growing stronger day after day and if we join forces; there’s no telling what we can create!   As always, so glad to share this experience with you.

Yours always,

US

Dear Campers,

The duo Dorthy Fix will be making two pubic appearances in February 2013.  You can catch them at the Northsider Tavern in Moorhead, MN on Friday the 22nd.  DF will share the corralled stage with:  Alien Brain & the Jugular Vein, The Boss Cello Quartet and Chrissie Jo and the Gob.  This show is scheduled to start at 10 pm sharp, so come on out and reconnect with independent music in Moorhead!

The very next night: Saturday the 23rd; Dorthy Fix will make the trek up north to perform at Ojata Records in Grand Fortks.  
The sounds of DF will mingle in the atmosphere with the likes of:  Al DeSautel, Silver Coins, Smiles A Lot and Taylor Strauss.  This is an all ages show that starts at 8pm with an $8 dollar cover.

Two thousand thirteen marks a decade of music making for Dorthy Fix!  This winter weekend getaway will present DF a chance to debut many new songs from their upcoming double album “Heavy Meddle”.   Looking forward to casting audio magic across the land…come check it out!

Barter Fest 2012!

Posted by Ralph E. Cook on Sep 22, 2012 in Barter Fest, Camping, Music

Dearest Campers,

Barter Fest 2012 has arrived!  Set on the Autumn Equinox, this year promises to be remembered.  Once again the weather is cool so don’t forget to dress warm.  In Minnesota, it’s never to early to break out the long underwear!  Always sexier to undress than dress!  So, get here and lets celebrate this experience that is Barter Fest, together!

Much love,

US

Hey, it’s been awhile!

Posted by Ralph E. Cook on Jun 11, 2012 in Barter Fest, Gardening, Music, Recording

Dear Campers,

Yeah, it’s been awhile!  Hope you are taking advantage of the wonderful Summer so far.  This evening we finished planting the garden here at the Abandoned Scout Camp.  This ends the 3+ month process of starting seedlings in doors and in the cold frame and then finally transplanting outside.  It appears that this year’s crop could be better than ever.  It amazes me how the gardens keep multiplying year after year.  Someday we hope to lose the yard completly and only have gardens!  (Smokey would not care too much for this.)  Well we have been busy, I promise.  Music making is in the air and in the hall.  Leon Boots spent this past weekend at camp laying down more tracks for their upcoming album to be released on A.S.C.  You can listen in to this and other projects at:

http://soundcloud.com/abandoned-scout-camp

Our attention has also turned to this year’s Barter Fest September 22nd, 2012.  You will find Leon Boots, The Juggernauts and many more acts to be announced over the next few months at this year’s Barter Fest.  This one is not to be missed!  For real.

Love always,

Ralph E. Cook

Leon Boots comes to town to ROCK!

Posted by Ralph E. Cook on Apr 30, 2012 in Music, Recording

Dear Campers,

This past weekend Leon Boots took advantage of some bartered studio time and rocked out/recorded 11 tracks in one day!  These boys have been playing music together for  25 years and not since the days of the band “United” have they released any music, but this will soon change with an up coming release on the Abandoned Scout Camp.    Stay tuned!

Yours truly,

Ralph E. Cook
