Every Second Saturday of the month at 8pm, we welcome diverse entertainers to the Preservation Hall (formerly Logan Street Sanctuary) stage! In December we welcome Nick Ivanovich! Nick’s musical influences have been diverse. Being raised in a bi-cultural environment exposed him to the genre of Traditional Ukrainian Folk Songs, with its alluring minor modes and sweet melodies. Additionally, his intellect was stimulated and his spirit moved by the beautiful liturgy emanating from the Orthodox Church. Through the years his musical pursuits have taken him to performing “Rock and Roll”, Gospel, Folk, and Bluegrass. Today his contemporary style of Folk Music is an amalgam of all these musical types, and yet distinct and individualized in its presentation. His songs paint a landscape of the multiple dimensions of the human condition as well as expressing empathy with its commonality. Nick has been musically active for over 30 years, and his songs reflect the peaks and valleys, and everything in between, along life’s journey. Also, his work as a psychotherapist interacts with that artist within, often adding to the counseling repertoire and enriching the moment.
