Daniel Kahn/Christian Dawid
Borders & Ballads

Detroit-born Yiddish troubadour Daniel Kahn is joined by his long-time compadre, Berlin’s legendary klezmer multi-instrumentalist Christian Dawid for an intimate evening of new and old songs smuggled over the borders of Yiddish, English, Russian, and German. Drawing on their close collaboration in the cult cabaret band The Painted Bird, as well as the tradition of such bards as Gebirtig, Okudzhava, Brassens, Degenhardt, Dylan, and Cohen, this is a timely collection of broken ballads, crooked klezmer, prison laments, revolutionary hymns, and apocalyptic blues.
