Saul Kaye: Soulful Jewish Blues
Saul Kaye is the trailblazing creator of a new genre of music, Jewish Blues. Saul has brought together the sounds of the struggle of African slaves with the history of the Jewish slavery experience. If you can imagine Muddy Waters meets Shlomo Carlebach, you've got an artist who is bridging the gap between the Delta and the Torah. Saul not only explores the characters from the Torah, but he embodies them.
It is a rare and beautiful occurrence when an artist manages to interweave his personal life, spiritual path, and art. After releasing 5 CDs of varying styles from the late 90s through 2008, Saul Kaye was pulled towards an idea that he claimed wouldn't leave him alone. This was the natural marriage of Jewish history, characters, and liturgy with the Blues. This lead to the release of Jewish Blues Volume One - Live!
Jewish Blues Volume One was so well received internationally (including several performances in Israel and 16 states in the US) that Saul decided to continue on this trail blazing path with his new Genre, Jewish Blues.
At this concert, Saul celebrates his just released Jewish Blues Volume IV: Downhome Nigguns and Other Songs From the Family Tree.
