Morris Music Festival slated for Pipestem By J.P. Root Where to start? There are several items of interest, the most important of which is the return of the Morris Family Old-Time Music Festival, so we'll start there. The Morris festival has become so popular that it has outgrown its original site on the family farm at Ivydale. It traditionally draws some of the best names in old-time music makers, and this year the site has been moved to Pipestem. Presented in conjunction with the Appalachian South Folklife Center, the Aug. 22-24 festival will'feature mountain arts and crafts in addition to the music. Admission to the affair is $4 per person per day or $10 each for the weekend; Camping is free, food will be available at what sponsors call reasonable rates, and housing is available in local motels in Athens, Beckley and Bluefield. Shower facilities are available at the camp ground. The music to be presented will be traditional mountain music. Bal- lads, labor songs, coal mining songs, blues and gospel music will be performed. Among the 70 musicians to appear--in addition to the Morris Brothers-will be famed blues singer George Jackson. Concerts are scheduled at 8 p.m. Aug. 22,1 p.m. and 8 p.m. Aug. 23, and 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Aug. 24. . The location is W. Va. 20 between Hinton and Princeton. Musicians and craftsmen wishing to attend may receive further information by calling 286-4491 or 2864751. » RADIO FREAKS probably know this by now, but for those of you who've been out of town, or just plain out of it, I'll tell you that WXIT, Rock Radio X-15, has begun expanded airplay of album cuts. Effective July 2, according to a letter I have here from program director Sean McNeal, the station Television moved its album airplay format into every part of the day. Previously, albums had been played only at night. According to McNeal, "We have expanded our format to permit album airplay through every day part. In addition, we have begun an 'album preview' segment to be run throughout each day. A produced, showcased segment will feature a cut from the 'preview' album each week. The entire preview L.P. will be exposed several times over each week." In addition, McNeil says, album versions of single releases will be used in place of the single. This is a big move for Top 40 radio in the Valley, and I welcome it. MANY OF US here in Charleston looked with interest on Lynyrd Skynard's appearance here last year because we thought we were going to get to hear a new band called Outlaws. As it turned out, we didn't get to because the band arrived too late and Civic Center personnel wouldn't allow the show to be delayed as long as it would take for equipment setup, sound checks, etc. So we missed Outlaws. The band's first album is out now, and anyone who was interested before can check it out. It's The Outlaws, Arista 4042. The Outlaws is the first band signed to Arista by president Clive Davis. The man who was responsible for gaining both Dylan and Joplin for Columbia when he was there, went after this band and paired them with producer Paul A. Rothchild (who worked -with Janis, the Doors and Paul Butterfield). The album is quite nice. The Outlaws play brutal rock'n'roll, accenting a sharp guitar line. The music is distinctly Southern country funk, and it's fine. CHARLESTON'S OWN Sarah Sandy has just closed a two-week's stand as THE supper entertainment at the Top of the Inn. The young singer--she's only 18--is very good, and someday when she's matured a bit, she will be outstanding. Next week, I'll tell you a little more about the girl they call "Sarah Lee."
