A Celebration of Jewish Stars

For those of you who caught the closing concert of Tarbut 2021, we have brought back Part 2 of A Celebration of Jewish Stars from this group of killer musicians and vocalists. And for those unlucky enough to miss it – don’t make that mistake twice!

Led by Paul De Gurse on keyboards, with Julia Kroft and Reid McTavish on vocals, Duncan Cox on guitar, Ruslan Rusin on bass, and Brendan Thompson on drums, this six-piece band takes us on a journey of outstanding music written by Jewish composers or sung by Jewish singers.

Including musical icons Carole King, Neil Diamond, Billy Joel, Barbra Streisand, Bob Dylan, Barry Manilow, Neil Sedaka, Paul Simon and numerous others, we hope to have you on your feet before the end of the evening.
