Joan A. Backman Memorial Concert |
Socalled aka Josh Dolgin is an artist based in Montreal, Quebec, who has been performing and creating internationally for over 20 years. As a music producer, performer and composer, Josh is the de facto godfather of Klezmer Hip Hop, wherein he uses new technologies and contemporary production styles to rework and reexamine Yiddish music in the 21st century. Josh writes and presents musicals, studies the music of Kurt Weill, produces, sings, plays, and arranges in a myriad of ensembles, including an Austrian Big Band, his own pop ensemble, and Di Frosh, a project with a string quartet (presented at Yidstock in 2018). Josh will sing solo at the piano and accordion in a rare, intimate, unplugged program of Yiddish and Yiddish-related music and history.
