Join Deborah Conway and Willy Zygier as they discuss and perform songs from their latest album Stories of Ghosts - an unbeliever’s examination of biblical themes from a Jewish perspective. The session, hosted by Gary Holzman, will explore the inspiration, common themes and connections between the songs on the album and those of such acclaimed Jewish songwriters as Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Randy Newman, Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg. These artists will be highlighted in a multimedia presentation and the session will conclude with a thought-provoking Q&A.
