The Bashevis Singers are the children of generations of people who lived their lives in Yiddish. Husky Gawenda and his cousin Gideon Preiss are renowned Australian musicians and award winning songwriters. They are the core members of the critically acclaimed band HUSKY. Husky’s sister (and Gideon’s cousin) Evie Gawenda is a theatre director and teacher who is known and loved for the beauty and warmth of her voice. Together they are The Bashevis Singers. When they sing in Yiddish, the past, the present and the future are rendered timeless. Their new album is available from thebashevissingers.com and iTunes.
CD released March 2016 “The Bashevis Singers” Performances at the Jewish museum, Malthouse theatre, Mullumbimby Folk Festival, In One Voice festival.
