Schedule of Events
Rogers Park from Chicago is America’s only chasidic folk band. They blend authentic age-old chasidic melodies with American folk rock. Their performance is a heartwarming and soulful experience that weaves together original song and masterful storytelling.
Israeli klezmer trio Simply Tsfat plays a lively mix of Hebrew and English songs that convey a deep love of chasidic life and its music. Their style is warm and intimate, drawing listeners into the air of the mystical city of Tsfat and a living organic tradition that stretches back for generations.
Chillent is a new band described by fans as “Soulive at a Jewish wedding” and “the klezmer Phish.” Starting as a weekly jam session in their hometown of Pittsburgh, Chillent has grown and attracted lovers of funk, jazz, blues, and world music. “Chillent” is a play on the word “cholent,” a Jewish stew. Chillent lives up to its name, offering up a hot plate of original compositions, spicy jazz and funk covers, and novel interpretations of Jewish favorites.
