THAT'S A GOOD WAY TO GET TO HEAVEN:
THE MUSIC & LIFE OF BIG JACK REYNOLDS
Third Street Cigar Records and E2HD present the story of a great unsung American bluesman: Marshall "Big Jack" Reynolds. Jack was a real deal blues player with a mysterious past, a dynamic temperament, a soft heart, and a mean harmonica. He never found national success in his lifetime. But his deep blues and tough songs made him a legend to roots music connoisseurs and an example to many up-and-coming musicians in the Detroit and Toledo areas. Hear Jack’s story from those he touched most deeply, and who kept him going. And hear the man himself sing, blow, and tell his tales.

KEFI: THE STORY OF FDF, THE GREEK ORTHODOX FOLK DANCE FESTIVAL
Stories of the life-changing effects of the annual Greek Orthodox Folk Dance and Choral Festival or “FDF” are told through interviews with participants, past and present. Since the first festival in California in 1976, FDF has hosted thousands of young people who compete as teams, performing the traditional songs and dances of their ancestors – and learning how to manage an event in the process. Watch as young people from across the U.S. and countries around the world come together to sing, dance, worship, make friends, “go for the gold,” and most of all, help preserve a heritage.
