Monument to Singer-Songwriter Valery Grushin to Appear in Samara Region
Valery Grushin

The monument to Valery Grushin, who has been commemorated with the All-Russian Grushinsky Festival of Author's Song held in the Samara Region for over 40 years, is planned to be set up in 2014.

      The monument will appear in the town of Novokuybyshevsk, where the author lived.

      The sculptural complex will be comprised of a monument to Valery Grushin and the imitation of the mountain, where the Grushinsky Festival concerts take place.

      Participants of a recent meeting, among them Valery Grushin’s nephew Mikhail, have approved of the project and agreed upon establishing an organizing committee to prepare for celebrations of the singer’s anniversary in 2014. Later fundraising for the monument will be announced.

      The place for the sculptural complex has already been found. It will be set up in the Chernyshevsky Street, near the house where Valery Grushin lived.

      Besides, the administration of Novokuybyshevsk plans to open in future Grushin's Apartment Museum in the house, where the singer and songwriter lived.

      Valery Grushin (1944 - 1967) was a well-known camper and guitarist-songwriter. He was lost in trekking down the Uda River in Siberia, while rescuing the local meteorological station chief with children sinking down. Friends of Valery Grushin got together near Samara in 1968 to commemorate him with songs and memoirs. The meeting then developed into the annual author's song festival, which takes place on the first weekend of July on the bank of River Volga near Samara. The record of the festival attendance was 150 thousand people.
