Sister Sparrow Announces New Album & 2018 ‘Gold’ Tour

first_imgIn 2017, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds took time off from touring to focus on growth and family. The band’s charismatic powerhouse frontwoman, Arleigh Kincheloe, had a son in 2017, and the group elected to go on hiatus during the end of her pregnancy and through to 2018. With a smattering of triumphant return dates thus far this year, it seems as though Kincheloe is ready to return to the road once again.The acclaimed soul-rock songstress has just announced that she’ll be releasing a new album in the fall titled Gold. Due out on October 12th, the new album was produced and co-written in collaboration with Carter Matschullat at Brooklyn’s DØØM Studio. As noted in a press release, “the LP takes the classic Dirty Birds sound and turns it into something altogether new, a soul-blasted contemporary pop approach supremely suited for Kincheloe’s immense voice and even greater vision.”In support of this new studio effort, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds will hit the road in the fall. The band’s Gold tour kicks off in the tail end of August, with dates in Athens, New York, and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, on August 30th and 31st. In September, the band will perform Westport, Connecticut’s Blues, Views And BBQ on September 1st ahead of a three-night run that will see the band hit Fredericton, New Brunswick’s Harvest Jazz & Blues Fest; Portland, Maine’s Thompson’s Point with Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats; and Burlington, Vermont’s Grand Point North Festival from the 14th to 16th.

Trained and United for Future Challenges

first_imgBy Myriam Ortega/Diálogo March 30, 2017 The training was held in Colombia from February 3rd to 24th with the cooperation of U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM). Its achievements included addressing the training priorities of the Colombian Armed Forces, improving skills in different operations, and sharing best practices with highly qualified military staff from the United States. Some of the courses were taught at the air base of the Military Transport Air Command (CATAM, per its Spanish acronym), while others, including parachuting exercises, airdrops, and medical training took place at the Tolemaida Military Fort. The 24-member work team, which included technicians and logistical support, arrived in a U.S. Army Hercules C-130 aircraft. The group was coordinated by the Mobility Support Advisory Squadron (MSAS), which designed the program and organized the group comprising instructors from the squadron itself and from six squadrons from five U.S. bases. “The MSAS is a squadron that trains Central and South American countries. We maintain a relationship to support the requirements of SOUTHCOM and the U.S. Embassy,” Lieutenant Colonel Ángel “Mango” Santiago, MSAS-Colombia mission commander, told Diálogo. “Normally, the air forces request the type of support they need for each course from the embassy, and the embassy looks at what kinds of teams from the U.S. can do that mission.” Based on Colombia’s needs, a training program was designed that consists of five courses: C-130 Personnel and Airdrop Team, C-130 Medevac Operations, Medical Intelligence, C-130 Maintenance: Propeller Balancing, and Load Preparation: RAMZ (inflatable boats). A total of 92 students from the Colombian Air Force (FAC, per its Spanish acronym), and the Colombian Army attended each course in small groups. During the training program, they used the C-130 aircraft, which can take off and land in rough terrain and has a pressurized cargo hold that can quickly be adapted for passengers, stretchers or troop transport. “The fundamental goal is to improve the capacities of FAC in its tactical mobility platforms, especially [the] C-130 and its capacity to airdrop personnel and cargo,” Major Marcus J. Rodríguez, director of operations of the 571st MSAS Squadron, told Diálogo. The experience of sharing knowledge and joint exercises provides a chance to improve technical capabilities. “We also have this aircraft, as do 69 other countries around the world. So it is an international platform,” said Lt. Col. Santiago, who also pilots that type of plane. The students’ experience Since 2012, this type of training has been offered every six months, more or less, in either Colombia or the United States. This continuity strengthens bi-national bonds of cooperation between partner nations. Participants experienced different styles of training based on the method used and subjects covered. The mass evacuation course gave students the chance to do a drill simulating the transport of injured people at the Tolemaida air base. “We did the drill using a helicopter provided by the Colombian Army. Four wounded individuals were evacuated (…) and transferred immediately, with the engines running, from the helicopter to the U.S. Air Force’s C-130, as the operation would be done,” described participant First Class FAC Technician Boris Polanco, assigned to the Hospital Engineering Division of the Health Department. “That moment was an intense adrenaline rush.” Service Technician Leady Karolina Castro, operator at CATAM’s engine workshop, also attended the course. “This is the first time I’ve taken the propeller course. The Hercules is our mainstay and the propeller course we just took can be applied every day. It’s practically our bread and butter here at the base,” she said. Participants also showed interest in the theory sessions since the content and method were tailored to each group’s needs. “This course, [with] the explanations they gave us, and the hands-on implementation reinforces our experience at work and in the workshop,” added Pastor Ramos Dumar, a junior technician at CATAM’s engine workshop who participated in the training. These courses will help ensure a timely response in a broad range of operations, including responses to natural disasters, humanitarian aid operations, and military operations, which may involve interaction between members of the Colombian Special Forces, Army, Air Force, and Navy.last_img read more
