I have an ever-growing number of great old, traditional Yiddish tunes.. I've loved the Yiddish language since I was exposed to as a young teen, learning is at the homes of friends during Jewish holidays. Subsequent exposure to the richness of the Jewish culture in the NYC area lent me the opportunity to share and hone this music with audiences of Jewish elders.. I'd particularly like to thank my friend and former associate, Lee Perry Gross, for getting me started with some of the age old favorite medleys.
