VIRGIN RECORDS
virgin40.com

There's got to be a joke in there regarding a 40-year-old virgin? The British record label Virgin Records, which was started by Richard Branson in 1973, is turning 40 this year.

To help us celebrate and remember why the record label was important, some events are in store (pun not intended) for you:

1) Exhibition
The creative direction for the exhibition will be overseen by Adrian Shaughnessy, George Lee and the team at This Is Real Art. It will include photos (seen and unseen), seminal videos (including props) and memorabilia that capture the symbiotic collaborations between the cultural icons of the day. The location will be an exclusive venue in Mornington Crescent.

2) Book
A beautiful art book will be edited by leading music journalist Adrian Thrills. Adrian began his career editing the punk fanzine 48 Thrills before becoming one of the main feature writers for NME in the Eighties. He contributed fifty cover stories for the paper championing the 2-Tone movement and many of the post-punk, reggae and dance acts of the era; as well as writing the first ever cover story for iconic style magazine The Face featuring The Specials. The book will be designed by Adrian Shaughnessy.

3) Documentary
A film produced by Leopard Films, one of the UK’s leading production companies, and directed by Paul Tilzey, the director of many award winning documentaries for BBC and Channel 4 including ‘The 70s’. Executive producer Todd Austin and Fiona Morris' projects include ‘Do it Yourself; The Story of Rough Trade’ (BBC Four) and ‘Imagine: Damon and Jamie’s Excellent Adventure’ (BBC One) respectively.

4) Events
A series of live events. Virgin Records will be taking over legendary Camden venue KOKO in October. The shows will celebrate four decades of disruptions involving icons and luminaries from Virgin’s roster past and present.

5) Compilations
A compilation CD with 2 x Cd set; one disc with current Virgin artists covering Virgin classics, another disc with original Virgin classics. There will also be a series of Virgin 40 compilation CDs spanning the four decades.

The Center for Traditional Music and Dance (CTMD) and Evergreene Music is celebrating the New York Center's 45th anniversary this month (June).

Excerpts from their press release:

In addition to releasing the Balkan Arts Series on June 4th, the Center will also be holding a special Benefit Dinner and Dance Party at New York's Edison Ballroom that same evening, honoring Sue Yeon Park (a National Heritage Fellow and the artistic director of the Korean Performing Arrts Center), Rick Luftgrass (Executive Director of the Laurie M Tisch Illumination Fund and CTMD Board Member), and Janette Sadik-Khan (Commissioner for the New York City Department of Transportation). The night will be rounded out with cocktails, dinner, dancing, and, a special musical performances by the Secret Trio (Ara Dinkjian-oud, Ismail Lumanovski-clarinet, Tamer Pinabashi-kanun/Turkish zither).

Recorded in the 1960's and 70's by CTMD-founders Martin Koenig and Ethel Raim, the historic 13-part Balkan Arts Series opens up the Center's rich 45-year old archive, featuring some of the most exciting field recordings of traditional folk music yet to emerge from Bulgaria, East Serbia, Greek Macedonia and Thrace, and Romania.
