Craig Judelman has become well known in the northwest for his fine old-time musicianship. Next week he returns with a project of Yiddish music, joined by the fine Latvian singer, Sasha Lurje.

Lebedik: shlepping goles

Jewish history has always involved migration, it has never had a culture that only existed in one place. People have moved around and lived in different lands, always dreaming of another part of the world. Living in diaspora (goles), Jews dreamt of the promised land in Israel and the golden land of the american dream. They carried this weight- schlepping goles, through their travels and the longing and displacement of their lives are retold in the songs.

Based in Berlin this new project by an international trio rekindles the songs and stories of our migrations, looking to our art and heritage for a context to the challenges so many immigrants and refugees face in our world today. The musicians in the band come from three homes for

Yiddish music: Sasha Lurje is a singer from Latvia, Craig Judelman is a fiddler from the USA and Ira Shiran is an accordionist from Israel. (For this gig they are thrilled to feature special guest Keith Judelman on accordion).

Together they explore the transformations of Yiddish music, from the Shtetls of the Old World through its journey to the city, and the new lands of America and Israel. Retracing the steps of our ancestors through the songs that sustained them, this program makes sure that this tradition remains lebedik - alive and lively!

$10 suggested

French violonist Eleonore Biezunski has been exploring the Yiddish traditions of the old and new world for quite some time now - both as a musician and as a archivist for YIVO. For this new project, she will be joined by Lauren Brody (vocals, accordion) and Joanna Sternberg (vocals, double bass). Together they will explore the "yerushe," the heritage of women's Yiddish folksongs, orally transmitted to them or preserved with great care and love by folklorists such as Ruth Rubin.
