Mikveh to appear in Boston, Feb 8,9
Mikveh is an all-woman Jewish supergroup comprising folks who have been involved with the klezmer revival, Yiddish folk and theatre music, new Jewish music, balkan music, and much that has been amazing about Jewish music for the last few decades (one bandmember, Susan Watts Hoffman, is a 4th generation klezmer).
This wouldn't matter so much except that in concert they bring out an intensity and virtuosity in each other that dwarfs their former achievements. This is the group's first appearance in Boston, and it's a must-see if you are in the area:
The concerts are Saturday, Feb 8, 8pm and Sunday, Feb 9, 2pm, at the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center, 333 Nahanton St., Newton, MA.
There will be a post-show curtain tail with best-selling author Anita Diamant, and a reception sponsored by Mayyim Hayyim: Liver Waters Community Mikveh and Education Center.
Tickets are: $26, general; $24 JCC member; $12/$10 youth tix.
