(Susan McKeown & Lorin Sklamberg)

7:30 pm | Aaron & Cecile Goldman Theater

Acclaimed vocalists and Grammy Award-winners Susan McKeown and Lorin Sklamberg present Saints & Tzadiks, a project celebrating Yiddish and Irish song. McKeown and Sklamberg have selected songs culled from rare archival material and old recordings on various themes from Jewish and Irish traditions: love, death, betrothal, betrayal and the demon drink. Vocalist, composer and multi-instrumentalist Lorin Sklamberg has been the lead singer of The Klezmatics (WJMF 2007) since its founding in 1986, and Susan McKeown, one of the most powerful and innovative voices in Irish music, has recorded ten albums of original and world music and was nominated for a BBC Folk Music Award.
