Jews N Blues
Join America’s Favorite Jewish Folksinger, Lil Rev for a heartfelt evening of songs, stories, humor and instrumental magic as in Jews N Blues.
This one man show celebrates the Jewish contribution to American Roots N Blues. From ragtime and jazz to the founding of Rock N Roll…Jews have made major creative contributions to all of these genres.
Listen as Lil Rev weaves an amazing tale of Jews whose passion, persistence and creativity has helped to paint the American popular landscape with an unforgettable vocabulary of poetic lyric and melody!
Singing his own compositions, historical anecdotes, a few choice covers and some romping blues instrumentals…Lil Rev strikes at the heart of America music… and like the classic blues of long ago…brings forth joy, sorrow and utter determination.
