Multimedia Presentation, with Josh "Socalled" Dolgin

A Live, Online Event Recorded Via Zoom on September 3, 2020

Josh “Socalled” Dolgin is a pianist, accordionist, producer, journalist, photographer, filmmaker, magician, cartoonist, and puppet maker based in Montreal, Quebec. One of the twenty-first century's most forward-looking young visionaries, he has lectured and led master classes in music festivals around the world—from Moscow to Paris, London to LA, and Krakow to San Francisco—and has performed on every continent. Josh’s multimedia presentation will consider Yiddish sheet music from the early-to-mid-twentieth century in America—much of his work draws from this music—some of which he’s discovered in the Yiddish Book Center’s collection.

We’ll be presenting weekly live virtual programs every Thursday evening at 7 p.m.—a range of live programming on a range of topics related to Yiddish and modern Jewish literature and culture. You’ll find the full schedule and event listings at
