Leonard Nimoy hosts a 13-part series that celebrates the American Jewish tradition by exploring the extraordinary range of its music. Each program illuminates a major theme reflected in American Jewish music: biblical epics set to music by Kurt Weill and other 20th century masters; Jewish legends in tone poems, film scores and operas; sacred masterpieces and the great cantorial tradition; the joy of klezmer; symphonies and concertos based on Jewish themes; the mysteries of Sephardic music; Holocaust reflections; songs from the Golden Age of Yiddish Theater; and world premieres of recently discovered Jewish compositions by Leonard Bernstein.
Walt Cronin came into being a serious folk singer songwriter around the age of 50. His life experiences as a medic in Vietnam and somewhat nomadic life after wards are the source of many of the folk songs he has written about relationships, societal issues, love songs and light-hearted fare which make up the content of what is his 3rd CD released in June 2010. Walt's goal was to reflect the sincerity of folk music history while placing the songs in a contemporary setting. The collaborators achieved their aims with his friend Martin Beal providing detailed arrangements and a fine editing ear while playing a myriad ofinstruments (guitars, keyboards, bass, mandolin, melodica, bouzouki, hurdy-gurdy, percussion,) as well as performing all drum programming. Quote: "Tender and introspective songs with the kind of realness and authenticity that is becoming quite rare." Alt-country, Americana, Folk Beeb Ashcroft Indie-Music
