WUSB's Sunday Street Series Presents Bluesman Ray Bonneville.

Sunday, April 15th , 5 P.M.

The Long Island Blues Society joins The Sunday Street Series to present this blues-influenced, New Orleans- inspired “song and groove man.” With a style that sometimes draws comparisons to JJ Cale and Daniel Lanois, Ray’s songs involve gritty narratives inspired by a lifetime of hard-won knowledge set against his soulful guitar and harmonica playing.

Ray has earned many accolades, including a Juno (the Canadian equivalent of a Grammy). His post-Katrina ode, “I Am the Big Easy” received the International Folk Alliance’s 2009 Song of the Year Award, and in 2012 Bonneville won the solo/duet category in the Blues Foundation’s International Blues Challenge. His songs have been recorded by many other artists, among them Slaid Cleaves and Ellis Paul.

Advance sale is $20 at www.sundaystreet.org through Friday, April 13th , with tickets at the door for $25 (cash only at the door)

Gretchen Carlson and director Alison Chernick will be Tom Needham’s exclusive guests this Thursday at 6 P.M. on WUSB’s ‘The Sounds of Film.’

Former Fox News Host, Gretchen Carlson, will speaking to Tom about her book, ‘Be Fierce: Stop Harassment and Take Back Your Power.’ In the book, Gretchen shares her own brave story of fighting back against sexual harassment, and her very public battle for justice. Since then, Gretchen has had a new calling: to empower other women in their struggle against injustice. After Gretchen stood up and spoke out about her situation, women all over the world have joined the movement and began to take back their lives and dignity.

Also on the program is director Alison Chernick, the director of ‘Itzhak.’ The film shines a spotlight on the remarkable life of celebrated violinist, Itzhak Perlman. Chernick does a remarkable job of telling the story of a young polio survivor who came from Poland and Israel to America in order to be taken seriously as a music student when schools only saw his disability. The film also shares personal glimpses into the life of Itzhak and his devoted wife, Toby Perlman, as well as candid moments with Alan Alda and Billy Joel. ‘Itzhak’ will be screening at the Port Jefferson Documentary Festival on Monday, April 16th at 7:00 at Theater Three. Allison Chernick is the scheduled guest speaker. ‘Itzhak’ will have its exclusive U.S. broadcast premiere as part of the ‘American Masters’ series on PBS.
