Fog City Blues: High Holidays with Jeremiah Lockwood


As part of the High Holy Days at Congregation Beth Sholom in San Francisco, Jeremiah Lockwood and his musical guests create sacred, spiritual experiences, weaving together old-world cantorial singing and American blues and gospel, along with spiritual music from around the world.

Jeremiah Lockwood – cantorial singer, guitarist, scholar and PhD candidate at Stanford University – has devoted his life to the notion that music has a unique power to open the body to emotions and ideas in a way that words alone cannot, providing a path to our spiritual selves that’s hard to find elsewhere. In this High Holy Days experience, Jeremiah invites you to open yourself to a variety of spiritual music, some familiar, some not-so-familiar, and some completely unexpected (electric guitar and gospel songs). Jeremiah and company join host Devon Strolovitch live in the studio this Wednesday 9/25 at 9 pm for a preview.
