Benjy Fox-Rosen is a Brooklyn, NY based singer, bassist and composer creating new Yiddish music. Ranging from re-imaginings of Yiddish art songs, to original settings of the poetry of Krakow's Mordechai Gebirtig, his compositions create a "vivifying concert of old lyrics in new bottles." (Zachary Berger of The Forward) Fox-Rosen just completed his third European tour as a bandleader which included performances throughout Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Germany. This concert will feature a band of young klezmer and improvising musicians, Avi Fox-Rosen- guitar,
Michael Winograd- clarinet, Daniel Blacksberg-trombone, and a special guest drummer.
