ABOUT

Laurel Premo & Jake Shulman-Ment are performing at the Bonifas Arts Center as a double bill tour plus some collaboration.

Laurel Premo is known for her rhythmically deep and rapt delivery of roots music, voiced on finger-style electric guitar, lap steel, fiddle, and voice. The glowing heartiness and rich grit of her sound reveal a love of and complete submersion in heavy archaic roots—from the crossover of old-time and blues American traditions to darker Nordic sounds. She is a Michigan-based artist who has been writing, arranging, and touring since 2009 with vocal and instrumental roots acts, and is internationally known from her duo Red Tail Ring. 

Jake Shulman-Ment is among the most highly regarded klezmer musicians performing today. Beginning studies in klezmer from age 12, he was initially a protégé of Alicia Svigals. Jake later immersed himself in related violin traditions, living in Greece, Hungary, and Romania for extended periods, becoming fluent in both the musical and spoken languages. In his early 20's he served the Hungarian folk dance community as New York's premier prímás (lead dance fiddler), playing traditional Transylvanian dances in bars, dance halls, and concert halls throughout North America.

Tickets available at the door.
