Where Am I?

NYC
Sat. Oct. 13, 8 p.m.
(FREE CONCERT, so come early for seats)
FREE once-in-a-lifetime Klezmer "hootenanny" at CUNY's Proshansky Auditorium.
I'm the MC/host.
Join Yale Strom and guests for a once in a lifetime performance of klezmer musicians from around the world who rarely, if ever, have shared the same stage. Musicians from Hungary, Germany, Ukraine, Israel, Canada and from throughout the United States have come to NYC to celebrate the revival of klezmer music, a renaissance that began thirty years ago in California. A real Klezmer Hootenany of Yiddish sing along, hasidic melodies, stage music of the Yiddish theatre and stories from the hinterlands of Eastern Europe. The musicians have all played a significant role in the klezmer revival since it began thirty years ago. Bring your voice. Lyrics will be provided. Moderated by Ellen Kushner, Sound and Spirit, National Public Radio.
The evening is connected to The Great Day on Eldridge Street Project, which continues to upstate NY (without me, but go!) the following week.


PHILADELPHIA
Oct. 12-14
, Faerycon

I'm just coming in Sunday to do one thing, but it's a very cool thing: they're flying my fiddler, Joe Kessler, in for a full hour performance of my Thomas the Rhymer live show, in which I sing ballads and read from the book, all in one seamless musical event. That's Sunday, 3-4 pm. Then from 4-5 I'll be signing books with Delia at the Books of Wonder booth there.

deliashermanwill be there the entire weekend (with Holly Black, Charles Vess, Brian & Wendy Froud, Ari Berk, Kinuko Craft & a host of others). She has a kickin' costume for the Bad Faeries Ball - though if you can only choose one (and ain't I kickin' myself for being double-booked?!), the Good Faeries Ball features a performance by the fine European Medieval band Estampie.

Lots more stuff coming up all over the map.

I just want to point out how great it is that you've created a life for yourself in which you can say "they're flying my fiddler in".
