"Krasnogorsk & the Moscow Country Club get around."

The Krasnogorsk is a Soviet movie camera and a suburb of Moscow, but Halifax's Krasnogorsk can be found playing on the number seven bus, in trees, on the Common or on tall ships. Violinist Jacques Mindreau interrupted baritone ukulele player Corey Hinchey's interview with a potential roommate last fall; he "started playing music with him, and never left," Mindreau says.

Playing eastern European, Roma-style music, they've been running well-attended open-mic nights in Hinchey's home and playing atypical venues---getting people into a different mindset and "reinvigorating" them. They've played in a bike trailer on a Critical Mass ride and in the mess hall of a Chilean ship with sailors Mindreau met on the harbourfront. Hinchey wants to be a "soundtrack for people's actual lives."

They're heading to Toronto on a bicycle-and-hitchhiking tour this month and playing the Atlantic Jazz Festival with Gypsophilia in July. - The Coast - Laura Kenins


"Krasnogorsk, Scribbler, Lee Park"

This Saturday local bands Krasnogorsk, Scribbler and musician Lee Park are gathering to raise money for Hope Cottage, a blue-and-white cottage on Brunswick street that makes meals for those who can't afford to buy them. The Facebook page promises projected films, booze and "crazy, crazy dancin'!" With Krasnogorsk's eastern European, Roma-style music, Lee Park's violin skills and Scribbler's experimental folk rock all fusing into one evening, the night's bound to live up to its crazy promise. –Holly Gordon - The Coast- Holly Gordon


"Krasnogorsk & the Moscow Country Club"

cinemagraphic manouche / Russian folk
Krasnogorsk (meaning blushing or beautiful city in Russian) is the brainchild of conceptual artist/writer/baritone ukelelist Corey Allen Hinchey and filmmaker/ vocalist/violinist Jacques Mindreau. Their music channels the mashing energy of the hitch-hiking fiddler who has been influenced by the mountains, sea, the Quebec manouche movement, Stephan Grappelli, the eastern European sounds of gypsies and Sarasate's Zigeunerweisen to name a few.
PERSONNEL: Corey Allen Hinchey (ukulele), Jacques Mindreau (violin), Scott McCormack (double bass), Rafael Roter (accordion).

Bio

Krasnogorsk started in the summer of 2008 when Violinst Jacques Mindreau met with Corey Allan Hinchey at an interview that Jacques interrupted for a potential roommate in Halifax. They basically drove away the potential roommate and Jacques never left, fiddling on the roof with Corey with two other musicians they began playing on the local bus, for couples in love, weddings, in trees, for old people and kids, busking on the street and eventually after being more noticed at the tall ships festival, on a 4 mast tall ship and the 2009 ATLANTIC JAZZ FESTIVAL.

Jacques faring from his hitch hiking adventures through out eastern canada the maritimes and Newfoundland is influenced by the sea and sky and highlands of Cape Breton, he has also played with many talented musicians such as the Moonshine Ramblers, and toured with the Grass Mountain Hobos and performed with them at the 2009 Canada Games opening Ceremony in PEI. His playing is very eastern in sound and his melodies reflect his need to express emotion through his passion. He studied film at York University.

Corey Allan Hinchey is a brain child musician, filmmaker, poet, writer, animator and Actor. He has completed a short stop motion film titled a Living Mechanism and has arranged most of the music for Krasnogorsk (meaning blushing or beautiful town or village), which is also the title of a Russian film camera they both used during their earlier years, both their music combines into what people describe as an emotional immaginative journey. They pour their souls and all their might and energy into this project, that they are nurturing. Krasnogorsk plans on playing at festivals throughout the summer and touring across the nation soon to meet with interesting and talented artists and dancing enthusiasts. Their music may re-invigorate your heart and soul if you encounter them.
