Singer/songwriter Talia Cooper, a Jewish Music Festival veteran, gives her last Bay Area performance before moving to New York. She'll perform with special guests Linda Hirschhorn, Eli Conley, Caitlin Austin, Liz Stuart, Jeffrey Landau, Jessica Chen, Stephen Petersen, Maia "Papaya" Wiitala and others.
Talia's original songs weave together her family traditions of activism, humor and Jewish culture, with tones ranging from sassy and humorous, to politically contemplative, to romantic with a twist. Her voice has been compared to her heroes Dar Williams, Joni Mitchell and Ani Difranco. She also performs in the a cappella quartet Vocolot.
Talia has served as director of Jewish Youth for Community Action, a program created and led by youth working towards progressive social change within a framework of Jewish values. JYCA will benefit from the concert's proceeds.
