Songwriter Mark Spoelstra
Catates Cante rbury Crowd
By MERYL SACKS
Mark Spoelstra, songwriter and
protest singer, is at Canterbury
House this weekend. Most striking
about Spoelstra, on stage and off,
is :his gentle manner and positive
attitude. He is a sensitive person,
and 'this trait is exhibited in the
songs he sings.
He began the evening with an
instrumental he wrote for his 12-
string guitar. The song, he said,
has no name; it has a very free
form expressing his feelings on
life, death, and happiness. The
.piece was an excellent one to be-
gin with, for it immediately ex-
hibited his outstanding talent on
12-string guitar and established
a strong rapport with the aud-
ienee. Spoelstra's sensitivity and
insight into human problems were
shown in the next few songs he
As a conscientious objector to
the draft, he spent two years
working in California in a child
development center, and while he
was there he wrote songs about
the lives of the people he was
working with. These are the songs
he sang, infusing each of them
with the emotion he must have
felt when he wrote them. One of
the songs, "Just A Hand to Hold,"
is about a. little boy killed in a hit
and run accident. Spoelstra says,
"Makes no difference where he's
from or where he's bound, makes
no difference if he's lost or found,
for he's dead and gone. . . . There
is a voice that speaks for black
and tan, the voice is for all of
This is one of Spoelstra's older
songs. T o d a y his style has
changed; he is not writing the
same type of songs he used 'to
write. He says that he only likes
to sing his old songs when he can
sing his new ones "back to back"
He is in the process of forming
a band, which is a continuation
of his style change. Groups such
as the Mamas and the Papas, the
Jefferson A ir p1a n e, and the
Beatles have influenced Spoelstra.
In the band, he plans to improve
upon the sound of these groups,
and strive for a higher level of
musicianship. There is more com-
munication between a greater
number of people possible in a
band, Spoelstra says.
The band will not be any spe-
cific type of group, such as folk-
rock or blues. This openness in
style is an illustration of Spoel-
stra's comment that he does not
consider himself to be a folk-
singer."He is primarily a writer;
the music is secondary to the
lyrics, and only when there are
no words does he "freak out" on
the music. "Music is there to have
intercourse with the lyrics," he
says. In Spoelstra's songs, the.
music and the words are beauti-
fully integrated. He keeps the
guitar at a low enough level so
one can hear what he is singing,
but when he stops singing he is
free to exhibit his talent on his
instrument. He is widely acclaim-
ed to be the best living 12-string
brought forth kittens, roses and
all kinds of tender touches in
their medley of "My Favorite
Things." Composition and orig-
inal arrangements were done by,
Howard White and Allen Lichter.
An addition to their list of Au-
tumn Leaves," smiles, and other
favorite delights, the Sammies now
have a third place IFC trophy to
add to their collection.

er ornaments of the "twenties"

'Tip Toeing Through the Tulips"
and other aging memories. In part,
their presentation was like the
jerky, syncopated movements of,
the silent screen stars; humor-'
ous, light and well coordinated;
they received third place.
Six other fraternal (and soror-
al) organizations also sang; and
IFC conducted a full score at their
28th annual sing. Aside from the
aforementioned, the gr o u p s
brought with them guitars, ban-Y
