The Jewish Federation of the Berkshires Connecting with Community presents "The Songs We Cherish" with musician, Joel Blumert.
Blumert will perform songs of Gershwin, Gus Kahn, Fats Waller and others. He has been referred to as a "musician's musician" and is admired by many jazz and classical musicians as well as folk and blues artists.
Joel will dazzle you with his guitar playing and vocal strength. He easily blends folk, blues, country, and popular song into the same program.
A product of the 60's blues and folk revival, Joel started playing guitar in 1963. He teaches guitar and gives voice lessons, and produced the Building Your Voice dvd guide to Alan Greene's book, The New Voice. He now lives in NW Connecticut and appears weekly on NWCATV, Canaan, CT on self-produced show, "Guitar and Vocal".
