Eve Sicular is the founder of and drummer for the bands Metropolitan Klezmer and Isle of Klezbos, but her new work offers much more than traditional music. It’s called J. Edgar Klezmer – Songs from My Grandmother’s FBI Files. In the show, Eve combines archival materials, spoken word, and original songs from a variety of genres to explore the life of her paternal grandmother, Adele Sicular, who was a psychiatrist and activist in New York City.

J. Edgar Klezmer will be performed in New York City on June 4th at the Manhattan JCC.
