Girls in Trouble Album Release Concert

Join Girls in Trouble in Urban Adamah’s magical outdoor tent for a special evening of live performance celebrating the release of their third album, Open the Ground. Girls in Trouble is an intimate indie-folk song cycle about the lives of women in Torah created by singer, poet, songwriter and violinist Alicia Jo Rabins and performed with her husband, bassist Aaron Hartman. The concert will also feature a short set of original songs by 13-year-old singer, songwriter and cellist Penina Gottesman-Biddle, a Berkeley native who has been studying songwriting with Alicia as part of her bat mitzvah preparation.

Admission is free. As with every Urban Adamah event, please bring a canned good to donate to our weekly free farm stand.
