"Ball and Chain: Russian Culture Invasion of Ukraine" with Lyuba Yakimchuk

Get more info about this event »

Description: Join the KU Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies (CREES) in welcoming esteemed Ukrainian poet Lyuba Yakimchuk to Lawrence for this year's annual Palij Lecture. On Sunday November 6th at 2pm Lyuba will give a talk titled "Ball and Chain: Russian Culture Invasion of Ukraine." What is currently happening in Ukraine is not just a war but the spread of archaic Russian culture all over Ukraine. How does Russian culture tradition affect Ukrainian culture during the ongoing war? How are Ukrainian and Russian languages changing in Ukraine? Why are profanities no longer a taboo? In which way do language changes affect poetry? This talk is about culture as a part of war and politics. The event is free and open to the public. It will take place at the Cider Gallery in East Lawrence. Lyuba Yakimchuk is a Ukrainian poet, screenwriter, and journalist. She is the author of several full-length poetry collections, including Like FASHION and Apricots of Donbas, and the film script for The Building of the Word. Yakimchuk’s awards include the International Slavic Poetic Award and the international “Coronation of the Word” literary contest. Her writing has appeared in magazines in Ukraine, Sweden, Germany, Poland, and Israel, and and has been translated into eleven languages. She performs in a musical and poetic duet with the Ukrainian double-bass player Mark Tokar; their projects include Apricots of Donbas and Women, Smoke, and Dangerous Things. Her poetry has been performed by Mariana Sadovska (Cologne) and improvised by vocalist Olesya Zdorovetska (Dublin). Yakimchuk also works as a cultural manager. In 2012 she organized the “Semenko Year” project dedicated to the Ukrainian futurists, and she curated the 2015 literary program Cultural Forum “Donkult” (2015). She was a scholar in the “Gaude Polonia” program of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage (Poland). In 2015 Kiev’s New Time magazine listed Yakimchuk among the one hundred most influential people of culture in Ukraine.

Description: PROJECT Trio is a passionate, high-energy chamber-music ensemble comprised of three virtuosic composers and performers from Brooklyn, New York—Peter Seymour (bassist), Greg Pattillo (flutist) and Daniel Berkley (saxophonist). Blending their classical training with an eclectic taste in musical styles, the ensemble has made an impact on audiences of all ages. Forged out of a collective desire to draw new and diverse audiences to top-quality music, PROJECT Trio is truly one of the pioneers of the classical crossover wave of the last decade. The trio has amassed over 100,000,000 views on YouTube with 112,000 subscribers. Combining the talent of world-class artists with the energy of rock stars, PROJECT Trio is breaking down traditional ideas of chamber music. Gramophone Magazine praised the group as “an ensemble willing and able to touch on the gamut of musical bases ranging from Baroque to nu-Metal and taking in pretty much every stylism in between,” while The Wall Street Journal hailed the trio for their “wide appeal, subversive humor and first-rate playing.” The New York Times has called beatboxing flutist Greg Pattillo “the best in the world at what he does.” The genre-defying trio is acclaimed by Downbeat Magazine as “packed with musicianship, joy and surprise” and “exciting a new generation of listeners about the joys of classical and jazz music.” PROJECT Trio will perform with the KU Symphony Orchestra, the premier orchestral organization at the KU School of Music led by award-winning conductor Carolyn Watson, director of orchestral activities at KU.

No exchanges or refunds unless a show is cancelled or postponed. COVID-19 Show Policy: There are no restrictions on this show but we encourage face masks when you can not social distance and ask that you stay home if you are feeling sick or have been exposed recently to someone with COVID-19. Country singer Triston Marez’s sound isn’t just centered around the crying steel or prominent fiddles that often go hand in hand with the rolling plains or legendary dancehalls that come to mind when thinking about country music -- they’re part of a way of life for the 25-year-old. Marez’s debut EP, That Was All Me, set to release Jan. 25, showcases Marez’s rich vocals telling tales of long nights, former flames and new love with a relatable honesty. On the EP, Marez’s influences -- Chris LeDoux, Aaron Watson and Cody Johnson -- weave throughout a collection of pure country music. In the EP’s title track, “That Was All Me,” a raucous night can be blamed on the jukebox, neons buzzing and one too many whiskeys, but insists any feelings felt were true. “Where Rivers Are Red, Cowboys Are Blue” hearkens back to the heyday of cowboy songs with an ode to a former flame, while “Dizzy” features the other side of the coin and a fledgling love story found on the dancehall floor. “Reservations For Two” is a romantic night set in the great outdoors, and “Here’s To The Weekend” offers an appreciation for a few cold beers with good friends while searching for a reprieve from the daily grind. A Houston native, Marez’s sound isn't just centered around country music, it's weaved through his entire 24 years. As a member of a musical family from Oklahoma known for their bluegrass and fiddle talents, Marez started playing guitar at age six and his first live performance was a Buck Owens song in the first grade talent show. Marez worked as a ranch hand and even rode bulls as a hobby for years to support his music career. He also won the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo’s talent competition in 2014.

Description: The Westerlies is a New York-based brass quartet comprised of childhood friends from Seattle: Riley Mulherkar and Chloe Rowlands on trumpet, and Andy Clausen and Willem de Koch on trombone. Formed in 2011, the self-described “accidental brass quartet” takes its name from the prevailing winds that travel from the west to the east. “Skilled interpreters who are also adept improvisers” (NPR’s Fresh Air), the ensemble explores jazz, roots and chamber music influences to create the rarest of hybrids—music that is both “folk-like and composerly, lovely and intellectually rigorous” (NPR Music). Equally at home in concert halls and living rooms, The Westerlies navigate a wide array of venues and projects with the precision of a string quartet, the audacity of a rock band and the charm of a family sing-along. The group has produced three critically acclaimed albums of genre-defying chamber music: its 2014 debut, Wish the Children Would Come On Home: The Music of Wayne Horvitz; a 2016 double-CD of primarily original compositions, The Westerlies; and Wherein Lies The Good, released in early 2020. Sought-after collaborators, The Westerlies are also featured on recordings by Fleet Foxes, Vieux Farka Touré, Common and Dave Douglas. Education and community engagement are core elements of the ensemble’s mission. Each season, The Westerlies reach thousands of students around the country with their innovative and inspiring assemblies and masterclasses.

In 2006, he secured one of the most coveted gigs in jazz: a frontline position in Tom Harrell’s working quintet. He has also been a member of The Mingus Dynasty, Big Band and Orchestra since 2000 and has made several recordings with the group. Over the years, he has recorded and performed internationally with a who’s-who of jazz musicians, including Ron Carter, Ben Riley, Abdulah Ibrahim, Eric Reed, Carl Allen, Al Foster, Billy Hart, Eddie Henderson, Rufus Reid, Wallace Roney and Herbie Hancock, just to name a few.

He is also a founding member of the collaborative group Black Art Jazz Collective, which is comprised of fellow rising star musicians and is dedicated to celebrating the origins of jazz and African American icons through originally composed music. In addition to performing, Escoffery is dedicated to music education by presenting lectures and masterclasses on jazz music.

Description: Our clinic in North Kansas City is now an official pick-up location for Five Mile Farms amazing grass-fed/finished beef, pasture-raised chicken, and farm-fresh eggs! Five Mile Farms is a local farm in La Cygne, KS that practices regenerative agriculture, which not only produces extremely high-quality meats but is also the prescription to replenish our soil and save our planet. They have so many top-quality animal products to choose from: farm-fresh eggs, whole birds, soup bones, hamburgers, quality beef cuts, brisket, summer sausage, beef jerky, and forest/grass-fed goat - just to name a few. How to Place an Order Step 1: Create an account and place your order online at www.fivemilefarms.com Step 2: Pick it up from our practice! Orders will be dropped off at our practice monthly on the 3rd Friday every month and held in our freezer until you pick them up, at a time convenient for you. ** No need to register for this event, all you need to do is follow the steps above! What is Regenerative Agriculture? Regenerative Agriculture describes farming and grazing practices that, among other benefits, reverse climate change by rebuilding soil organic matter and restoring degraded soil biodiversity – resulting in a delicious, high quality and nutritious protein source! Comparing Nutrient Content When comparing eggs from hens raised on pasture to factory-farmed caged hens, the pastured eggs have twice the vitamin E and long-chain omega 3 fats, 38% higher concentration of vitamin A, and less than half the ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acids. (Karsten, PaWerson, Stout, & Crews, 2010) In addition to better quality fats, pastured eggs are also higher in other vitamins and minerals. Grass-fed beef displays similar differences in fat quality and nutrient content when compared to conventional grain-fed. Studies also reveal increases in cancer-fighting antioxidants such as glutathione and superoxide dismutase have been found in grass-fed beef vs. grain-fed. (Daley, AbboW, Doyle, Nader, & Larson, 2010) Support Local Regenerative Farms Opting for locally raised & produced food ensures that it stays packed with its intended and initial nutrients (and flavor!). Buying local helps strengthen communities because when you buy directly from the farmer, you are building a relationship while also supporting local farmers who provide for you as much as they provide for their own families.

Mavis Staples
Mavis Staples

Get more info about this event »

Description: Hailed by NPR as “one of America’s defining voices of freedom and peace,” Mavis Staples is the kind of once-in-a-generation artist whose impact on music and culture would be difficult to overstate. She’s both a Blues and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer; a civil rights icon; a Grammy Award-winner; a chart-topping soul, gospel and R&B pioneer; a National Arts Awards Lifetime Achievement recipient; and a Kennedy Center honoree. She marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., performed at John F. Kennedy’s inauguration and sang in Barack Obama’s White House, and she has collaborated with everyone from Bob Dylan to Prince. She was an integral part of her family’s gospel group, The Staples Singers, led by her father Roebuck “Pops” Staples. With Mavis’s voice and Pops’ songs, the group evolved from enormously popular gospel singers to the most influential spirituality-based group in America. Their songs, like “Freedom Highway” and “Why Am I Treated So Bad,” provided part of the soundtrack of America’s civil rights movement. Mavis is a respected elder of soul and gospel music, a successful solo artist and beloved collaborator with rock musicians—but she’s no static symbol of the past. As Staples describes, “I’m the messenger. That’s my job—it has been for my whole life—and I can’t just give up while the struggle’s still alive. We’ve got more work to do, so I’m going to keep on getting stronger and keep on delivering my message, every single day.” At a time when most artists begin to wind down, Staples ramped things up. Since 2004, she’s released a series of fresh, powerful solo albums that feel vital and present. Recent collaborations include Ben Harper, Arcade Fire, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Hozier, Neko Case, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and Tune Yards, among others. She has blown away countless festivalgoers from Newport Folk and Glastonbury to Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo, performed with The Band at The Last Waltz, and graced the airwaves on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Austin City Limits, the Grammy Awards and more. When listening to a voice like Staples’—which Pitchfork raves “has only gained texture and power over the years”—it’s impossible not to contemplate all she’s been through in her life. “I sing because I want to leave people feeling better than I found them,” Staples concludes. “I want them to walk away with a positive message in their hearts, feeling stronger than they felt before. I’m singing to myself for those same reasons, too.” Even the messenger needs a reminder every now and then. Visit lied.ku.edu for more information or call 785-864-2787.

COVID-19 Show Policy: There are no restrictions on this show but we encourage face masks when you can not social distance and ask that you stay home if you are feeling sick or have been exposed recently to someone with COVID-19. Little Feat is the classic example of a fusion of many styles and musical genres made into something utterly distinctive. Their brilliant musicianship transcends boundaries, uniting California rock, funk, folk, jazz, country, rockabilly, and New Orleans swamp boogie into a rich gumbo, that has been leading people in joyful dance ever since. It began in 1969 when Frank Zappa was smart enough to fire Lowell George from the Mothers of Invention and tell him to go start a band of his own. Soon after, Lowell connected with Bill Payne, which stirred up sparks. They then found drummer Richie Hayward. Little Feat in 2021 is: Bill Payne, Keyboards and Vocals; Sam Clayton, Percussion and Vocals; Fred Tackett, Guitars and Vocals, Kenny Gradney, Bass; Scott Sharrard, Guitars and Vocals; and Tony Leone, drums. Fifty years on, they’ve been up and they’ve been down and they know where they belong—standing or sitting behind their instruments, playing for you. And anything’s possible, because the end is not in sight. Submitted by: Box Office The Cotillion
