Jalopy Theatre Presents at the American Folk Art Museum: Fraydele

On the first Friday of each month, Jalopy Theatre sponsors music at the American Folk Art Museum as part of a continuing partnership. Tonight’s performance features Fraydele, a new project led by multi-instrumentalist Joanna Sternberg and featuring Eva Salina on vocals; Zoe Aqua on violin; Zoe Christiansen on clarinet and accordion; Sam Reider on accordion; and Joanna Sternberg on vocals, guitar, piano and bass.

Named after Joanna’s grandmother Fraydele Oysher, a cantor and pioneer of feminism in the Yiddish Theater, Fraydele performs its own unique arrangements and interpretations of soulful songs from Yiddish folk music traditions.
