Biblical Banjo Presentation

Come have fun hearing Bruce Brill’s Biblical Banjo.

Bruce explores how a non-Hebraic instrument is used as a vehicle for Scriptural themes.
Joining biblical themes with the banjo, the music morphs from “old-timey,” to VERY old-timey.
It becomes, well, “Jewgrass.”

This will be the first in a series of lectures Bruce will bring to AACI about music; its origins, history and cultural context. This lecture will also precede Bruce Brill’s next concert at AACI and will make the concert even more memorable.

If you intend on joining us for the concert you should think about attending this discussion.
Thursday, June 4th, 7:30  -  8:30 PM
15 NIS AACI members / 25 NIS non-members
