Folk Music Promoter And Patron Izzy Young Has Died

first_imgIn addition to Dylan, Mitchell and Peter, Paul and Mary, other Folklore Center alumni assisted by Young were Tim Buckley, the Lovin’ Spoonful’s John Sebastian and an up-and-coming young poet named Patti Smith. In 1973, Young closed the Center, moved to Stockholm, Sweden, and opened the Folkore Centrum mingling America’s folk heritage with Sweden’s own deep history of folk music. He operated the store and venue in several locations, hosting daily concerts until Nov. 2018 when the Centrum was closed due to his declining health.”He had opened his heart to so many people, so many poets who came to his shop,” said Young’s daughter Philomene Grandin, “and he was a fantastic father.” In addition to Grandin, Young is survived by his son and three grandchildren. His funeral will be held in Stockholm.

Young died on Feb. 4 of natural causes in his 90th year, at his home in Stockholm.An “ancient chapel, like a shoebox sized institute,” was how Dylan described the Folklore Center, which sold records, books and sheet music and hosted concerts. Unwilling to leave folk music trapped in coffee houses, Young arranged for regular folk concerts at the Italian restaurant Gerde’s, where Dylan made his New York City professional debut in 1960. The following year, Young helped folk music spread beyond the confines of the Village, organizing Dylan’s first major performance at Carnegie Chapter Hall, a side venue adjoining Carnegie Hall.

Bangladesh cant bear burden of Rohingyas for long Khaleda

first_imgBNP chairperson and former prime minister Khaleda Zia holds a Rohingya child in her arms while visiting Rohingya camp in Balukhali of Ukhia, Cox’s Bazar. Photo: BNP Bangladesh Nationalist Party chairperson Khaleda Zia on Monday urged the government and international community to intensify diplomatic efforts to resolve the Rohingya crisis, reports UNB.She made the call while talking to newsmen after distributing relief materials among displaced Rohingyas at Moynargona Rohingya camp in Ukhiya.The BNP chief also urged Myanmar to take back its nationals ensuring their security and citizenship for the sake of humanity.”We think the Rohingya crisis won’t be resolved only by distributing relief materials. The Rohingyas will have to be repatriated through discussions and strong diplomatic efforts so that they can live their own country with security and without fear,” she said.Mentioning that the government could not yet take any effective step to resolve the Rohingya problem, Khaleda said, “The Bangladesh government must strengthen its diplomatic efforts to send back the Rohingyas. Alongside, the international organisations will have to take responsibility for repatriating them on humanitarian ground.”The BNP chief called upon the international community to come forward to ensure the safe return of Rohingyas to their own country. “I appeal to the international organizations: You please translate your words into actions to overcome the problem.”Khaleda said the international community should understand Bangladesh is a poor, small and densely populated country. “Though we’re poor, we have got the big heart and we love people. That’s way locals are making their best efforts and providing money from their pockets to ease the pains and sufferings of the Rohingyas.She further said, “But it’s not possible for us to bear it for a long time. So, Myanmar should take steps to take their citizens back to their country as early as possible as winter is approaching fast as the rainy season is over.”Khaleda Zia arrived at Ukhia around 1:00pm to visit four Rohingya camps and a medical camp set up by pro-BNP physicians’ body, Doctors’ Association of Bangladesh (DAB). She will return to Chittagong later in the evening.last_img read more
