The Troy Savings Bank Music Hall presents
Tommy Emmanuel
Acoustic Guitar Phenomenon
7:30 p.m.
Troy Savings Bank Music Hall, 30 2nd St, Troy, NY 12180
Tickets: $39, $29
Tickets are available now via phone, (518) 273-0038, in person, or online at www.troymusichall.org. Tickets are available at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall Box Office, 30 Second Street, Troy, Monday through Friday 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
We are bringing back two-time GRAMMY nominee Tommy Emmanuel, whose five decade career has garnered hundreds of thousands of fans worldwide. This one night only engagement is in support of Emmanuel’s upcoming album, It’s Never Too Late, which will be released on September 21, 2016, on Thirty Tigers. The album is 14 tracks of all original music with no vocals or guests. Emmanuel has been voted Favorite Acoustic Guitarist in both Guitar Player Magazine and Acoustic Guitar Magazine’ reader polls. A household name in his native Australia, Tommy has garnered hundreds of thousands of loyal fans worldwide. Tommy’s unique style — he calls it simply “finger style” — is akin to playing guitar the way a pianist plays piano, using all ten fingers. Rather than using a whole band for melody, rhythm, bass, and drum parts, Tommy plays all that — and more — on one guitar. Tommy Emmanuel is an honorary Kentucky Colonel, a CGP (Certified Guitar Player, a title given by Chet Atkins to only 5 guitarists in the world), an Order of Australia Medalist (AM), and the holder of both an honorary Master’s Degree (MA) and more recently an honorary Doctor of Arts (DR) from Charles Sturt University in Australia in recognition of his commitment to rural Australia and his contribution to music education.

World Music Institute (WMI) presents
Ballaké Sissoko & Vincent Ségal
8:00 p.m.
Pre-performance Q&A with the artists (7 p.m.) moderated by music writer and producer Banning Eyre of Afropop Worldwide
French Institute Alliance Française, Florence Gould Hall, 55 E 59th Street, NYC
Tickets $35
When Ballaké Sissoko and Vincent Ségal released their first collaborative album, Chamber Music, they caught the music world by surprise. Everything about this duo was unexpected: the Malian master of the kora; the French cellist with the unlikely background in trip-hop; and the elegant, soulful music they made together. Sissoko and Ségal have created their own cross-cultural hybrid tradition, one that draws on the ancient well of West African troubadour songs, the rich heritage of Baroque music, and an elusive but somehow clearly modern sensibility. In 2015, these two masters returned with Musique de Nuit (“Night Music”)—an album even more spellbinding than its predecessor.
Co-presented with French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF). This concert is presented as part of World Music Institute’s Collaborations series.

Museum at Eldridge Street presents
The Jewish Ghetto in Postcards: From Eastern Europe to the Lower East Side
Presented in partnership with the Blavatnik Archive
Museum at Eldridge Street, 12 Eldridge Street, New York, NY 10002, 212.219.088
Hours: Sunday – Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
RSVP: $30 in advance; $45 at the door.
From 1880 to 1924, one-third of the Jewish population left the shtetls and cities of Eastern Europe for the United States, fleeing persecution and seeking economic opportunity. On these shores and on the Lower East Side, immigrants found themselves in a new kind of densely populated urban neighborhood. Still, echoes of the old country could be found in the cries of the marketplace, the plaintive tunes of the synagogue, and most of all in the shared Yiddish language of neighbors. The Jewish Ghetto in Postcards presents rarely seen images of shtetl life in Europe and the “Ghetto” of the old Jewish Lower East Side. In captivating color and stark black and white, these vintage postcards provide snapshots of vanished places that are at the heart of the early 20th-century Jewish experience.

Look for these events on the calendar associated with this exhibition:

Hot Cider Walking Tour of the Jewish Lower East Side
Monday, December 26 and Wednesday, December 28 at 1 p.m.
