JUNEAU - Gold Street Music is back with another of their first-Saturday folk music concerts. This month, the performers will be Ed Schoenfeld, Beth Leibowitz, Jacque Farnsworth, Steve Winker, Pat Henry and Martha and Jim Stey. The concert will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 7 at Resurrection Lutheran Church. The cost is $5 at the door.
Leibowitz, Farnsworth and Winker will be joining forces yet again. The trio previously played at Folk Festival under the name Escape From Brooklyn, though none of the members are actually from New York. They will be playing a set in the Klezmer style.
Leibowitz will be playing clarinet. She also plays in the Juneau symphony, which she described as "a rush," but the reason she started playing clarinet was to play Klezmer music.
Farnsworth will be on piano. She is also the pianist for the Alaska Youth Choir and the Juneau Pride Chorus.
Winker will be providing percussion for the trio with his box of various drums and jingles.
Leibowitz said they will be playing one original number and the rest of their set will consist of classic Klezmer hits from the early 1900s.
Next month's Gold Street performance will be held on March 7 at the same time and place. The performers will be Lis and Leif Saya, Bill Childers with his daughters Charli and Kelli, Cheryl Cook and Kathy Hocker, Mark Heard and Steve Hoolihan, and Tidewater.
