Co-Presented with the Chutzpah Festival.

Josh “Socalled” Dolgin, a true renaissance man of music and the creative arts, performs a transporting evening of Yiddish music, Di Frosh, along with a local Vancouver string quartet. Audiences will be treated to a night of rediscovered Yiddish songs, stories… and perhaps a little magic!

Josh “Socalled” Dolgin is a pianist, accordionist, producer, journalist, photographer, filmmaker, magician, cartoonist and puppet maker based in Montreal, Quebec. He has lectured and has led master classes in music festivals around the world, from Moscow to Paris, from London to LA, and from Krakow to San Francisco, and has performed on every continent. With 6 solo albums to his name, he has performed all over the world for more than 10 years, and his list of collaborators knows no generational, social, cultural nor religious boundaries.

“The marriage of voice in performance with quartet arrangements is so profoundly affecting. Impassioned urgency, thrusting back and forth in voice and gesticulation is matched with vivid plucked strings and light bow strokes creating an added heart beat to the dramatic, emotional, yet clearly cerebral lyrics. The material stretched from the early 20th Century, across two world wars to the present; always maintaining a zest for life, for robust self-reflection and cry to action in service of a people, a culture.” DAVID O’BRIEN, THE BAREFOOT REVIEW (JUNE 15, 2019)
