Mary Fahl, Formerly of October Project, to Play The Stage Door in Charlotte on 4/7
by BWW News Desk - Mar 6, 2017

Mary Fahl is an expressive, emotional singer/songwriter who first achieved fame as lead singer and co-founder of the mid-1990s NYC- based Folk-Chamber Pop group October Project.  The hallmark of their sound was Mary Fahl's awe-inspiring power vocals over gorgeous melodies played with passion and sophistication. As a solo artist, Mary has released several compelling albums, including the fantastic re-working of Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" for V2 Records and her wonderful, original studio album "The Other Side of Time" on Sony Odyssey.  She has also written and performed songs for several major motion pictures, including the lead song ("Going Home") for The Civil War epic Gods and Generals.  Her most recent album "Live at the Mauch Chunk Opera House", winner of the Indie Acoustic "Album of the Year" award, is a collection of twenty-four tracks recorded live at one of America's oldest vaudeville theaters that captures the soaring, soul-permeating vocals and musical breadth that makes the Mary Fahl concert experience what the Portland Press called "soul-permeating."  Fahl's elegant, cinematic songs draw on classical and world music sources, American art song, as well as thinking man's folk-pop which she performs with an earthy, viscerally powerful contralto.

Historian and author, Noah Andre Trudeau has recently been selected to receive the prestigious 2016 Award of Achievement from the Lincoln Group of New York for his new book, Lincoln's Greatest Journey: Sixteen Days that Changed a Presidency, March 24 - April 8, 1865. The award committee's vote was unanimous, according to the Lincoln Group's president Steven R. Koppelman. 'The Award is presented annually to the individual or organization that has done the most to encourage the study and appreciation of Abraham Lincoln,' explained Koppelman. 'In making this award, The Lincoln Group of New York recognizes Lincoln's Greatest Journey as a superb work of research, expertly written, which details an aspect of the Lincoln presidency that has been little studied and a much needed in-depth work.' He went on to state that prior award winners include Doris Kearns Goodwin, Eric Foner, Harold Holzer, and screenwriter Tony Kushner. 'It is a wonderful and humbling honor to receive this prestigious Award of Achievement for Lincoln's Greatest Journey,' said Trudeau. 'It is a special feeling to read the list of past winners along with the memorable books they wrote and to realize my effort is now counted among them. My thanks to the members of the Lincoln Group of New York for making this selection.' 'This is a special study, with keen insights and deep research, so having Noah Andre Trudeau win such a prestigious award is very gratifying,' explained Managing Director Theodore P. Savas. 'Noah been working studying this phase of Lincoln's unique life for a long while and in many ways, and I am especially pleased his work has been recognized in this manner.' About the Book: The most extensively researched and detailed story of these decisive sixteen days at City Point, Lincoln's Greatest Journey provides a narrative laden with many heretofore unpublished accounts. A fresh, more complete picture of Lincoln emerges. This is Lincoln at a time of great personal and national change - the story of how he made peace with the past and became firmly future-focused, all set against a dramatically new narrative of what really happened during those last weeks of his life. It infuses the well-worn Lincoln narrative with fresh sources to fundamentally change an often-told story in ways large and small. About the Author: Noah Andre Trudeau is a history graduate of the State University of New York at Albany. His first book, Bloody Roads South, won The Civil War Round Table of New York's prestigious Fletcher Pratt Award, and enjoyed a cameo appearance in the hit web television series House of Cards. His fourth book, Like Men of War, a combat history of black troops in The Civil War, was honored with the Grady McWhiney Research Foundation's Jerry Coffey Memorial Book Prize. His other books include a best-selling history of the Battle of Gettysburg, Sherman's 'March to the Sea,' and a compact biography of Robert E. Lee.

A New Collection of Poems by One the Greatest Ukrainian Poets of the Twentieth Century Pavlo Tychyna Published by Glagoslav Publications
by BWW News Desk - Feb 11, 2017

With his innovative poetics, deep spirituality and creative word play, Tychyna deserves a place among the pantheon of his European contemporaries such as T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Rainer Maria Rilke, Federico Garcia Lorca, and Osip Mandelstam. His early collections such as Clarinets of the Sun (1918) mark the pinnacle of his creativity and poetically document the emotional and spiritual toll of the Revolution of 1917 as well as The Civil War and its aftermath in Ukraine. John Fizer has noted Tychyna's close affinity with Walt Whitman's cosmism, particularly in his cycle In the Orchestra of the Cosmos. While Tychyna in many ways displays the moral conscience of his times in his early works, later in his life he acquiesced to Soviet authorities in order to survive the horrors of Stalin's regime. He was forced by authorities to refuse a nomination for the Nobel Prize, the only reason for which would have been his Ukrainian ethnicity. This edition of Tychyna's complete early works includes translations of all his major early collections as well as his poetic masterpieces 'Mother was Pealing Potatoes,' 'Funeral of My Friend,' and his highly patriotic 'In Memory of the Thirty.' The volume includes a guest introduction by prominent Ukrainian poet Viktor Neborak. (more...)
