With both Hirut’s life and the future of the practice at stake, the two women must make their case for self-defense against one of Ethiopia’s oldest and most deeply-rooted traditions.

When disturbing security camera footage reveals an incident involving both couples’ children, their fragile balancing act of respectability and class is shattered and the two families must navigate the repercussions.

Yitzhak is proud to maintain the same turkey farm that his father built when the family moved from Iran to Israel. Now that Yitzhak’s son Moti is thirteen, the expectation is that he will learn the familial trade and, in his own time, take over the business. But Moti is more interested in reconstructing old cars and trucks, a trade for which he obviously has a tremendous talent. The rebellious boy is not at all shy about letting his father know that he has no interest in turkeys, but for Yitzhak this rejection isn’t just a matter of personal interest – it’s an insult to all the values he holds most dear.

Part II of the series will feature works that are reflective of composers’ personal narratives. Leos Janáček’s Sonata for Violin and Piano is a composition whose catalyst was the agitation and passionate emotions of World War I. Edvard Grieg’s lighthearted Wedding Day at Troldhaugen depicts the “congratulations and best wishes” that are bestowed on newlyweds by wedding guests. Elliott Carter’s Riconoscenza per Goffredo Petrassi presents a trio of independent voices, all in a work for solo violin, and Antonin Dvořák’s ever-popular American String Quartet reflects the composer’s encounter with nature while on vacation in Spillville, Iowa.

On a misty October night, an itinerant mountain preacher finds a cabin inhabited by two young sisters, who insist he stay with them until the rain passes. The three spend the evening swapping tales and singing songs, but it grows clear that certain things — music, for instance, or true love, or the evil actions 24

of men — leave remnants after the things themselves have long faded away. Even if we don’t want them to remain...

Mauzy is a tale about tale-telling, about songs, about how storytellers can mix so deep into the stories themselves that they never find their way out — out of the story,

or out of the mountains, or back to the world of the living.

Like a song that won’t leave your head, like a wind sneaking through the cracks into your house, or like that part of your past you’ve tried to forget, Mauzy will haunt you...

Dobro master and 14-time Grammy Award-winner Jerry Douglas is to the resonator guitar what Jimi Hendrix was to the electric guitar: elevating, transforming, and reinventing the instrument in countless ways. In addition to being widely recognized as the foremost master of the Dobro, Jerry Douglas is a freewheeling, forward-thinking recording artist whose artistry incorporates elements of bluegrass, country, rock, jazz, blues and Celtic into his distinctive musical vision.

The renegade traditionalists of Mipso – Jacob Sharp on mandolin, Joseph Terrell on guitar, Libby Rodenbough on fiddle and Wood Robinson on double bass – are doing their part to take three-part harmony and Appalachian influences into new territory. Formed in Chapel Hill in 2010, these musicians draw continual inspiration from their rich North Carolina roots.

With roots in traditional folk and bluegrass, The Avett Brothers’ sound combines a refreshing blend of country, punk, rock and roll, and pop that the San Francisco Chronicle describes as having the “heavy sadness of Townes Van Zandt, the light pop concision of Buddy Holly, the tuneful jangle of the Beatles, the raw energy of the Ramones.” Known for their honest and powerful lyrics, the band’s hits include “November Blue,” “Live and Die,” “Slight Figure of Speech,” “I And Love And You,” “Murder in the City” and “February Seven.” The Avett Brothers’ new album, True Sadness, will be released on June 24, 2016.
