CANCELLED: Charlie King and The Prince Myshkins

$17 – $20

It is official – Charlie King and Prince M will be cancelling their show for next Thursday and we will do everything we can to host them for when they reschedule.

——————————–

Charlie King is a musical storyteller and political satirist.  He sings and writes passionately about the extraordinary lives of ordinary people.  Pete Seeger hailed him as “One of the finest singers and songwriters of our time.”

Charlie is currently touring with the Prince Myshkins. The trio, which has been touring off and on since the 1990s, have just released their new-ish recording, For the Record.  It’s a mix of 15 songs recorded live in concert: first in 2007 in Cedar Rapids IA, with Karen Brandow; then in 2008 in Santa Cruz CA.  It’s a blend of satire and sorrow, hope and horror, startling harmonies and incendiary lyrics

The Prince Myshkins are Rick Burkhardt and Andy Gricevich. Rick plays accordion and sings; Andy plays guitar and sings. They met in 1995 at the University of Illinois, where Andy studied literature and philosophy and Rick studied music composition. Within a year they had co-founded the Utopia Train theater company, and were traveling around the country with a group of rambunctious Midwestern utopianists. 

In 1997 they moved to San Diego to continue their studies and to see what life was like in the land of palm trees, the US Navy and a union-busting city council. In their seven years there they survived by appearing locally as KPBS San Diego’s resident satirists, and by touring nationally to sing at antiwar demonstrations, union rallies, schools, coffeehouses, living rooms, community centers and major urban intersections. 

 

In 1999 they co-founded The Nonsense Company, a group of musicians dedicated to the performance of new works of contemporary classical music by exciting younger composers. Rick and Andy are both enthusiastic readers and writers of experimental poetry, and continue to perform political theater at every opportunity. 

 

Real True Fact: Prince Myshkin is the main character of Fyodor Dostoevsky’s novel The Idiot. “Myshkin” means “little mouse,” and his first name, Lev, means “lion.” In the first chapter of the novel he tells a fellow rail passenger that “there are no Prince Myshkins left but me.”
