Rochester Folkus: Bonnie Abrams and Allen Hopkins
Wednesday, October 23, 2019 @ 19:00–23:00$10
Born in the Bronx, child of Holocaust survivors, Bonnie Abrams played Greenwich Village clubs as a teenager. Through careers as an environmental scientist, winemaker, and now a Holocaust educator, Bonnie kept writing and singing her songs, incorporating her family history and Jewish tradition, chronicling her life and the world's events. Bonnie has recorded extensively —— her CD A Sudenyu of Yiddish Song is featured at the National Holocaust Museum in DC —— and performed throughout the region, with her guitar and the world's biggest alto voice. Twenty-eight years ago, she partnered with Allen Hopkins, who helps with vocal harmonies and an arsenal of instruments, from banjo to concertina. Bonnie's shows always feature her humorous takes on middle age and family life, her strong social conscience, and the flavor of her Jewish background.
