Yale Strom & Hot Pstromi will perform a special Labor Day concert.

When: 
Sunday, Sept. 6 at 1:00 pm
Where: via Zoom
Cost: $15 (*Information provided below.)

 
Yale Strom & Hot Pstromi lineup:
Yale Strom - violin
Elizabeth Schwartz - baritone ukelele/vocals
Fred Benedetti - guitar 

 
From Yale Strom: "We will celebrate the working woman and man with Yiddish and English songs about labor."

Hot Pstromi will also perform klezmer tunes Strom has collected during his many ethnographic treks in Eastern Europe.

 
During the Covid-19 pandemic it has been most difficult for musicians to work. The proceeds will go to supporting artists like Hot Pstromi who are preserving and extolling Yiddish culture and ensuring the Workers Circle/Arbeter Ring in Los Angeles can continue operating during these financially hard times.
