Westport Radical Jewish Culture Festival: Bop Kabbalah
(upcoming Tzadik release Spring 2014)

Sat, Dec 21, 2013, 8pm
Beit Chaverim Synagogue of Westport
85 Post Rd West
Westport, CT

This new series at Rabbi Greg Wall's Beit Chaverim synagogue in Westport, CT, will present exciting performances by the most cutting-edge performers in Jewish music today.

Led by guitarist and composer Ty Citerman, Bop Kabbalah plays rhyth­mic, dynamic and lyri­cal music that takes some of the lan­guage of klezmer, modal nig­gu­nim, jazz, and 21st cen­tury con­cert music…and then twists and recon­tex­tu­al­izes it. It’s not really what you’d hear in most syn­a­gogues or at most wed­dings, but of course, those aren’t the only places to hear Jew­ish music!
Ty Citerman - guitar
Ben Holmes - trumpet
Ken Thomson - bass clarinet
Adam Gold - drums
