Jake Shulman-Ment Solo Concert
Jake Shulman-Ment is at the helm of a new generation of Klezmer performers. He tours, records, and teaches internationally and has spent over two decades traveling and living between New York City and Eastern Europe, learning traditional violin styles and researching old Jewish music from master fiddlers. In his solo performances, Jake speaks to audiences intimately through his singular voice on the violin and sings Yiddish folk songs of philosophy, love, and resistance. He shares historical, cultural, and personal context that illuminates the music as a thread linking past to present, traversing generations and migrations.
