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. Her 2021 solo release, ‘Golden Loam’, continues Laurel’s weaving of old wild and soundscape, with ruminant power, a masterful use of space, and dynamic waves of warm, gritty sustain. “Subtle but dazzling and rich in texture. Watching a live performance is pure hypnosis.”  – MTV

Jake Shulman-Ment is at the helm of a new generation of Klezmer performers. He tours, records, and teaches internationally and has spent two decades traveling and living in Eastern Europe, learning violin traditions and researching old Jewish music from master fiddlers. Drawing from his upbringing in a community of people dedicated to practicing secular Yiddish culture in New York City as well as from his extensive travel, research and study, he has synthesized an expressive and individual style that is deeply rooted in the diasporic history of Yiddish culture. Jake speaks to audiences intimately through his singular voice on the violin, sings Yiddish folk songs of philosophy, love, and resistance, and shares stories and musings about life, music, wandering, and being human.

Laurel and Jake share a certain ruminant, compositional style in their work, each drawing from deep roots in the folk music and stories of their ancestors. In this extraordinary concert, their two separate sets as soloists will culminate in a collaborative performance that explores new sounds and connections in a shared American story of migration, search for identity and community, and innovation.
