Glasses of Fine, solo concert in Chicago
December 15 @ 19:30 - 21:30 UTC+0
Polina Shepherd (Russia /UK) is bringing a pre-CHANUKAH celebration to Chicago’s audience: a mixture of original, classical, and folk songs mainly in Yiddish and Russian, including a few world premieres.
Chicago has seen her in 210 Live at last year’s sold out Russian-Yiddish Folk Cabaret with Psoy Korolenko, The Stranniki.
Polina grew up in a Russian Jewish home where songs were frequently sung at celebrations. When living in Tatarstan and studying at the State Academy, she played Russia′s first klezmer band after Perestroika, and toured the world with her own quartet. Now an internationally renowned singer, she brings the songs of the Steppes and the Shtetl up to date with passion and haunting soul. She has toured with her solo show Songs of the Steppes & the Shtetl in Russia, USA, Canada, Switzerland, Belgium, Germany and Brazil.
