The Moline Public Library and Jewish Federation of the Quad Cities welcome folksinger Lil’ Rev back to the area as he presents “Fiddler on the Roof Meets O Brother Where Art Thou?” on Wednesday, June 5th at 7:00 the Moline Public Library, 3210 - 41st Street.  This program of Jewish and Yiddish folk music from the singer, multi-instrumentalist, and music historian is free and open to the public.  For more information, contact the library at 309-524-2470.

Through a colorful prism of American roots influence, Lil’ Rev will perform Jewish Blues, Bluegrass (or as he likes to call it, Jewgrass!), Country Western (look out Kinky Friedman, here comes Lil’ Rev!) and original songs played on the guitar, ukulele, mandolin, harmonica and banjo.  Lil’ Rev will seamlessly weave a tapestry of Yiddish, Israeli, Chasidic, and American folk songs into a rich gumbo of story, song, and lore for the whole family.

This event is sponsored by the Jewish Federation of the Quad Cities and Friends of the Moline Public Library.
