Irish Musician Andy Irvine, Poet Becky Gould Gibson, Behind the Scenes with Dale Pollock and More

Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist Andy Irvine.

Triad Arts Weekend: June 13, 2014

Today on the show there’s nothing like the power of music to change people’s lives—literally. Back in the 1960s for example, a young boy in Ireland heard a Woodie Guthrie album, and he was immediately hooked. Today that little boy is arguably the finest interpreter of traditional Irish music, and, thanks to The Fiddle & Bow Society, Andy Irvine is coming to Winston-Salem this weekend for an intimate concert you do not want to miss. Then University of North Carolina School of the Arts School of Filmmaking Professor of Cinema Studies Dale Pollock takes us Behind the Scenes for a look at the ever growing relationship between movie making and merchandising in the post—LEGO Movie world. Poet Becky Gould Gibson is the author of Heading Home, the inaugural winner of the 2013 Lena M. Schull Book Contest, and she sits down with Bethany Chafin to cover, among other things, the essence poetry and the life of an artist. And from Heading Home we shift to The War At Home. That’s the fascinating current exhibit going on at the New Winston Museum. It covers the dynamic history and diverse stories of the Piedmont during the Civil War years. Irish music, LEGO moneymakers, plenty of poetry and hearty tip of the hat to the Moravians.

New Winston Museum Showcases Stories of the Region

New Winston Museum

“Now the Battle Din is O’er” was appropriately enough the last tune played for General Robert E. Lee. It was also the last music played by the 26th Regiment North Carolina Troops, made up of Moravian musicians from Salem. In February, New Winston Museum in collaboration with the Moravian Music Foundation hosted performances of this historic music along with the touching “When the Swallows Homeward Fly” performed for Lee on the evening of the surrender at Appomattox, VA, and others.
