Isle of Klezbos, the soulful, fun-loving powerhouse klezmer sextet makes its 92YTribeca debut to help celebrate marriage equality (the city starts giving out licenses to ALL starting Jul 24, people). This band approaches tradition with irreverence as well as respect. Based in New York City, they have toured from Vienna to Vancouver with a repertoire that ranges from rambunctious to entrancing: neo-traditional folk dance, mystical melodies, Yiddish swing, retro tango, late Soviet-era Jewish drinking songs, re-grooved standards and genre-defying originals.
Nedra Johnson is a singer-songwriter multi-instrumentalist born and living in New York City. Her unique style of guitar playing is unmistakably informed by her many years as a professional bassist, and keeps her live solo acoustic performances on more of an R&B tip than what one might expect of a "girl with a guitar." Johnson plays with a joyful mix of funk, rock and gospel.
