Lyrics, Letters, and the Forgotten Lives of Ben Irving

Ben Irving (born Irving Hurwitz in Hartford, CT in 1901) hit the road as a salesman when the Great Depression cut short his promising musical career. Throughout the 1920s, he led several musical combos and toured the Northeastern Vaudeville circuit. Throughout the Depression, he travelled all 48 states, 3 Canadian Provinces, and 3 Mexican states in search of income to send home to his family. Though he would eventually resume his entertainment career upon retirement, he unwittingly left a legacy in postcards he sent from the road. Here, his great-grandson Tyler Sonnichsen unlocks the visual counter-narrative of America as Irving saw it.

Yagoda Galo (Halo-Berry) – is a band from Arkhangelsk
Yagoda Galo (Halo-Berry) – is a band from Arkhangelsk, considering and performing music as a life adventure. The sound of the band is created with a virtuosic domra (Russian folk string instrument), emotional rhythm section and original sound effects. Yagoda Galo style is a mix of fancy tunes, expression, lyric and dance energy. Presenter: Nick Vymorkov The band unites original and professional musicians: Nick Vymorkov - voice, acoustic guitarVera Larushina - domraSlava Pronin - bass, sound processorsOleg Chaikovsky - drumsArtur Rozhkov – percussion synthesizers, samplers In 2008 Yagoda Galo was nominated for an award of a significant international ethno-music festival Sayan Ring in Siberia. The committee of the festival includes representatives of Russia, Tuva, Khakassia and Yakutia, famous musicians and producers. Since then the band takes part in many different events in Russia – from small regional festivals to the largest Russian independent music festival Empty Hills. Since 2009 Yagoda Galo has realized an amazing DREAMBOAT TOUR – a tour through the country by car. The band covered in total more than 100000 km (twice the length of the Earth equator, about 1/4 of distance from the Earth to the Moon), performing in most of regional capitals in North-West and Central part of Russia, and to the Ural mountains. On the basis of the received concert experience and communication with musicians with different national background the band Yagoda Galo got an idea to prepare a concert program, representing Arkhangelsk regional culture and creating an image of the White Sea and the Russian North. As a result, in 2010-2012 Yagoda Galo recorded an album, named POLAR– a vivid compilation of originally arranged traditional and author’s songs. The band plans to publish and make a presentation of the album POLAR in spring 2013.
