Joel Took a Train Ride to New Orleans
Great Northern Beans
Jug band/klezmer fusion: a volatile mixture! The Great Northern Beans, consisting of Stuart Rosenberg, Joel Frankel, and Layla Frankel, performed a potpourri of klezmer tunes, Tin Pan Alley standards, Americana, blues and ballads entertaining the folks riding along on the journey south.
Performed on the Pullman Rail Journey, to New Orleans as featured artists this past fall, through the Old Town School of Folk Music.
program made possible by Chai Lifeline
A world class organization helping kids on the road to recovery. Joel joins Chaplain Jim Manzardo once a month at Chicago's Children's Memorial Hospital, bringing songs and good cheer to children who are convalescing through the in-hospital television program that is broadcast to their rooms. Each month the music of a particular country is featured as the volunteers, staff and the families as well as the patients enthusiastically join Joel and Jim. They always have a great time. This program is made possible Chai Lifeline, a wonderful organization whose motto is "Fighting Illness With Love" which indeed it does. They do remarkable work for very sick children and are a great organization to support.
