Benjy Fox-Rosen has been active as a bassist and singer in the klezmer and eastern European music scene in New York for the last several years; he has toured worldwide with Luminescent Orchestrii, recorded with Adrienne Cooper, and is bassist/vocalist in the Michael Winograd Klezmer Trio. After several years of performing with his own band, Fox-Rosen has emerged with a unique take on Yiddish song. This evening Fox-Rosen will present new material, primarily drawing from his settings of Yiddish poetry, as well as lesser known folk songs and new instrumental pieces. He will be joined by Avi Fox-Rosen on guitar, banjo and voice.
