The Matt Temkin’s Yiddish Jam Band Featuring Ashira
Hip version of songs in English written by Jews, rocking versions of Yiddish songs written about Jews, and soulful versions of Hebrew songs written for Jews – all sung by the stunning voices of the female vocal trio ASHIRA (Arianne Slack, Laura Lenes, and Leah Moss), and backed by the swinging MATT TEMKIN’S YIDDISHE JAM BAND (Dan Cousin, musical director). Bringing together musical influences from all the 350 years that Jews have been residing in America, this is an experience that can be had only one way: in person and live!
