It's time for a Folk Festival at Disneyland on October 10 & 11, 1981. Did you know: “The theme song for Gilligan's Island (music by George Wyle, lyrics by Sherwood Schwartz) was done in a folk-like character, and in fact is written in a traditional folk mode (modes are a type of musical scale); the mode of "Gilligan's Island" is ambiguous between Dorian and Aeolian. The lyrics begin with the traditional folk device in which the singer invites his hearers to listen to the tale that follows. Moreover, two of the stanzas repeat the final short line, a common device in English folk stanzas. However, the raising of the key by a semitone with each new verse is an unmistakable trait of commercial music and never occurred in the original folk tradition.”
So just sit right back and tell you a tale…
Since all I know about folk music is in the above paragraph I that copied from Wikipedia, I have no idea if these are “Folk” performers or not, but I would guess they are.
Small World Character Parade, I bet that looked weird. The park closes at 7pm on a Saturday night? Private party afterwards maybe?
From September 1980 and as a shout out to Mike over at “Jungle is 101” blog (link), here is a great “C” ticket. Mike just did a super post about the “C” ticket and “the pit” in New Orleans Square, be sure to check out his blog.
This “C” ticket was the last ticket in this book and yes I tore it out for this post. It made that wonderful “zip” sound that’s been bottled up for 28 years.
An insanely grand attraction lineup, you’ll find me on American Sings, Adventure thru Inner Space, then the PeopleMover, then I'd do them all again!
$8.50 seems like a great deal even in 1980, it is a $14.20 value you know!
