Socalled String Quartet
April 23 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
This new program of songs arranged for string quartet is Josh “Socalled” Dolgin’s attempt to present some of the most incredible songs of this most incredible of repertoire: songs from the Yiddish Theatre, art songs, Hassidic melodies, Klezmer, folksong, songs from the Holocaust, from Israel, and even some original songs written by masters of the genre for Di Frosh.
Socalled performs with Montreal-based Warhol Dervish: an unorthodox chamber music collective, gathering together some of the most interesting and creative musicians in Canada.
Josh Dolgin is a pianist, accordionist, producer, journalist, photographer, filmmaker, magician, cartoonist, and puppet maker based in Montreal.
