Yidstock Concert, Eleanor Reissa Ensemble
Yidstock: The Festival of New Yiddish Music is back, in-person, bringing the best in klezmer and new Yiddish music to the stage at the Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, Massachusetts. Eleanor Reissa is a Brooklyn-born native Yiddish speaker whose work on both English and Yiddish stages as a director, actor, writer, and singer has earned her a Tony Award nomination. A longtime favorite and friend of Yidstock audiences, Eleanor debuts a new ensemble ? led by her frequent collaborator, trumpeter Frank London of the Klezmatics ? to share her unique takes on Yiddish song, as she continues to reinvent the art of storytelling through Yiddish cabaret.
