Michael Beresh's Letters to Baltimore from the War
Press Release

Michael Beresh of the Americana rock group, The Country Devils, set out in September of 2009 on a new project, recounting through music the events of his great uncles' Walter and Henry Beresh' WWII travels. Walter and Henry, both employees at Bethlehem steel lived in Highland town. During WWII, they served at Anzio Beach-Head and Bastogne Belgium, writing detailed letters of their accounts, and in Walter's case, poems for their Baltimore family. Both brothers were killed in action and never returned home.
On March 6th 2010 Michael Beresh debuted the musical composition, Letters to Baltimore from the War to a sold out crowd at the Creative Alliance at The Patterson in Baltimore, just down East Avenue from where his uncles lived and where they grew up.
The songs meld individual stories and historical facts depicting one family's joys and sorrows through out World War II.
In 2011 Beresh along with songwriter Adam Miller (lawn chair) was approached by Baltimore's Veterans Artist Program to write a series of songs based on other Maryland veterans and their stories. The result was Letters to Baltimore from the war volume II. A chilling recount of the stories of four modern day veterans and one Gold Star Mother. The show was performed on veterans day 2011 once again at the creative alliance at the Patterson theater.
On October 20th at Baltimore's ,The wind up space, both albums will be performed in their entirety back to back along side reading's of letters by Aaron Henkin & Mike Smith and stories told by the persons who lived them.

Featuring musicians from The Country Devils, Lawn Chair, Baltimore Afro-Beat Society, Soon Clyde, Ben Frock & Love Unit and Cris Jacobs Band.
