He was one of the co-founders of the Austrian experimental composer collective, “Die Andere Saite” and received the Prize of Honor by the Austrian government for his orchestral composition, “Tenebrae.” Following his children’s Opera, “Der Wilde Man”, Joshua received The “Award for Outstanding Talent in Composition” by the City of Graz and was twice finalist in the National American ASCAP competition.

At 6pm, Avia Moore will lead a free dance event for families & children – all ages are welcome. At 8pm Veretski Pass will perform selections from their Klezmer Shul project for which they received a grant to create a non-divisive musical spiritual service with elements from all of the regions of the Pale of Settlement and attempts to bridge the gap between the sacred and the secular, not through the use of words, but with purely instrumental music. Veretski Pass offers it as a gesture of reconciliation in a world divided by doctrine, and dedicates it to the memory of musicians lost to war. On Saturday, February 13th doors open at 6:30pm to the sounds of Ambush Brass, and at 7pm The Rebbe’s Orkestra will open the show on stage. At 7:30pm Veretski Pass will perform music from the band’s new album Polyn (Poland). Be transported to Poland over 100 years ago, as the musicians of Veretski Pass mine the obereks, kujawiaks, krakowiaks and polkas of Poland, a land that was once home to three million Jews. Inspired by the 1901 story, A Gilgul Fun a Nign (Metamorphosis of a Melody), written by Polish Jewish author I.L. Peretz, this repertoire draws from previously unknown Hasidic melodies, Polish country dances, contemporary and 19th century ethnographic collections and field research by the musicians and their colleagues. Drawing on these sources, Veretski Pass has re-imagined, re-composed and re-arranged old urban and rural music to enrich the genre currently known as klezmer music. It is the meeting of Jewish and Polish music - a missing link in the klezmer revival. At 8:45 a dance party to live music by Veretski Pass and local klezmer friends with dancing led by Avia Moore will follow the concert and intermission. On Sunday, February 14th between 10:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. the four guest artists will teach three 90 minute workshop sessions in music & dance. Also on Sunday, there will be a catered and homemade Lunch ‘n Learn when Cookie Segelstein will present “Jews in the Prairie: Growing up with Carpathian Jews in Cowboy Country.” Cookie’s personal experience growing up in Kansas City, Missouri with Holocaust survivor parents in America’s Heartland. The Sunday lunch reservation deadline is on Friday, February 5th. Events throughout the weekend will also feature music and dancing with local klezmer groups and soloists: Nahalat Shalom’s cantorial soloist and music director Beth Cohen, Alavados ensemble, The Nahalat Shalom Community Klezmer Band, Rikud Yiddish dance troupe, The Rebbe’s Orkestra-klezmer and Judaic band, Ambush Brass and di Kavene Kapelye. Nahalat Shalom’s Rabbi Deborah Brin will lead Shabbat services on Saturday, February 13th at 10am and she will be accompanied by the music of Alavados which is the congregation’s in-house smaller 9-piece ensemble. Event prices range from free to $20 per event and an all-event early-bird registration discount of $85 for general admission and $75 for seniors and students.

AL SCORTCH

https://www.facebook.com/events/152523815114865/ Al Scorch: Grafting literate, character-driven songs and Mid-American roots onto a post-punk DIY sensibility, Chicago-based songwriter, performer and instrumentalist Al Scorch is at the forefront of a bold musical frontier. A songwriter, vocalist, claw-hammer banjoist and rambunctious force of nature, Scorch –– solo and with his shifting collective of musicians –– regales audiences across the U.S., the UK and Ireland, “…breathing fire and brimstone,” as Alan Harrison, No Depression testifies The Saltine Ramblers: The Saltine Ramblers started as a group of friends bringing their diverse influences to acoustic jams in a Los Lunas living room in 2004. Bluegrass, alt-country, old time fiddle tunes, folk, blues, cajun, rock & roll and life in New Mexico are all influences that commingle in the music they create. Strong, heartfelt originals are supplemented by unique interpretations of songs by primary influences Bill Monroe, Ween, John Hartford, Wilco, Grateful Dead and the alien band from the Mos Eisley Cantina. Some songs are goofy, some heartbreaking, some say I want you back, some say I don’t need you anyway. The Saltine Ramblers are Kevin Strange (guitar, vocals) Cory Minefee (guitar, vocals) David Ivey (fiddle, mandolin, vocals) and Dave Payne (bass, squeeze, vocals). SISTER 01-21-2016
