We named our band The Bashevis Singers as a play on the name of the great Yiddish writer Isaac Bashevis Singer who won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1978. You can read about him on wikipedia Isaac Bashevis Singer
We played the fabulous Mullumbimby Music festival in 2014. It was such a fun gig. Hope to see you there some time soon.
We were lucky to collaborate with some of the finest musicians in Melbourne and Israel when making this album.
We also have some special guests (Shhhhhh!)
You’re in for a treat when this album is released.
The Bashevis Singers has an Instagram account.
