The Arthur Russell Conference was a great success, and the performances were transcendental.
Thanks to all involved and all who attended.

It was especially touching that Arthur's parents, Chuck and Emily Russell, as well as his sisters and nieces and nephew were present. The evening performance at Housing Works ended with a performance by Rachel Henry, Arthur's niece and a promising newcomer on the NY music scene.

The panel discussions ranged from theory and analysis to personal recollections and eye-witness accounts of working sessions.

The late night club performance by Arthur's Landing was definitely hot.

I will try to post transcripts of papers and documentation as it becomes available.
Stay tuned.

And Tim Lawrence's new book looks great - "Hold On To Your Dreams: Arthur Russell and the Downtown Music Scene, 1973 - 1992" - copies hot off the press from Duke University Press, available shortly on Amazon:
