This is a great opportunity to see an up-and-coming talented musician in a unique intimate setting and to show your support for innovative Jewish music on national television!

CNN picked up the story behind Clare Burson’s Silver and Ash for their “Belief Blog” this week! The piece is titled “Curiousity of Jewish Roots Inspires Indie Singer’s Album,” and focuses on the religious and emotional aspects of Clare’s journey. Her album and all the work she put into it is well-deserving of all this amazing press!
Hers is no longer just the story of a hundred-and-seventeen-year-old piece of cheese. Clare Burson performed songs from her new album “Silver and Ash” last Thursday at Joe’s Pub, and the reviews are rolling in.
In a piece published this morning, the NYTimes interviewed Clare to learn more about the history behind the album. Spinner wrote a great, detailed chronicle of Clare’s artistic journey, and Popdose.com called the album “rich” and “moving.” Read More »

As Clare performs, audience members will participate in a four course meal comprised of dishes prepared by Ms. Lohman that, like SILVER AND ASH, progress from late 19th century Eastern Europe through Weimar Germany and 1950’s Tennessee, and end in present day Brooklyn.
