I think this may be the father of George Seversky the popular singer who recorded in London in the 30s. Somewhere I read a short biography of George Seversky which said he was the son of a famous singer and gusli-player.

The father of George Seversky was Nikolai G.Seversky. If you search the site by Seversky, you'll find a lot of his records.

Some information about George Seversky is available in the description of Tanagra label (sorry, currently in Russian only). His brother was Alexander Seversky who is famous aircraft designer and most likely he subsidized the Tanagra label that I believe was created solely for George Seversky recordings.

BTW, last year George Seversky's niece Diane contacted me and asked to make for her transfers of George's Tanagra records that I was very delighted to fulfill.

N. G. Seversky
I stand corrected!

I will look for the biography again. I think it was probably in a little British encyclopaedia of radio performers. He was also known in Britain as 'the aviator baritone' and the connection with his brother probably helps explain that.

George Seversky
You will be surprised, but he was a pilot on the first place! Following is my translation of the extract from this page:

Prokofiev-Seversky, Georgy Nikolayevich (1896-1972)
Son of N.G. Prokofiev. In July 1916 he graduated from the Sevastopol School of Aviation. At the battlefront he proved to be an excellent combat pilot, a master of aerobatics. He did not accept the Revolution and was a member of the White movement. He emigrated to Turkey, then France, but could not find a pilot job there. Since he inherited from his father a strong and beautiful voice, he began to sing Russian romances. He also sang popular French and English songs. He was presented on the posters as “George Seversky”. In the late 30-ies he moved to the United States, where he became a popular singer too. Volunteered as Vice-Chairman of the Society of Former Russian pilots in America.
