image001Amber Ikeman, cantorial singer and songwriter, will be coming to Helena the weekend of November 10th and 11th. On the 10th, she will be performing some of her original work at Free Ceramic.

In addition, Amber is offering a free concert, previously performed and well-received in Bozeman, for the Helena Jewish community and friends on Saturday, November 11th at 7pm at Touchmark on Saddle Dr., in The Forum. This performance should last approximately one hour. Please tell your friends. Desserts for a social gathering following the performance are most welcome.

“OY, MAMA!”: Classic Yiddish folk songs, show tunes, original pieces, and heartfelt stories – all an homage to the Jewish Mother’s quirks and virtues. Presented by Cantorial Soloist/Singer Songwriter Amber Ikeman. Free (donations appreciated).

“Anchored by hilarious stories about her own mother, grandmothers, and generations beyond, Amber’s music deeply touched everyone in the crowd. Both the Yiddish and English songs captured the soul of Jewish motherhood and enriched our memories of our mothers and grandmothers, laughing at their eccentricities and crying for those we have lost. Amber’s voice and guitar are technically superb, but it’s the way she uses her talents to stir our deepest feelings that will leave you wanting more.” – Rabbi Ed Stafman
