Join us for a virtual evening of Jewish Americana Music!
September 3, 2020 | 7pm
The Gordon JCC is honored to partner with with the Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life - ISJL and the JCC’s of Tallahassee, FL, Baton Rouge, LA, Knoxville, TN, Fayetteville, GA, Shreveport, LA, Jackson, MS, Durham, NC, Montgomery, AL, Mobile, AL, and Columbus, GA, to bring you an evening with Joe Buchanan, Jewish Americana artist.
After 13 years of marriage, Joe found out that his wife was Jewish. With this surprise discovery, they started on a lifechanging journey. From the first class and a million questions to the mikvah and beyond, Judaism answered every spiritual question Joe had ever had, and brought an incredible amount of healing.
It has been five years since his conversion, and this Americana artist from Houston, TX has truly found his voice in the history, Torah, and values of the Jewish people. He's toured the United States, leading an original Shabbat service, and playing concerts. Combining elements of folk, country, and roots-rock, Joe’s music digs deep to tell personal stories of struggle and triumph. “This is feel-good, toe-tapping, Americana with a Jewish Soul.”
A Texas native who firmly believes in the idea that there is always room at the table, Joe's music highlights “the values, Torah, and history of the Jewish people to deliver stories steeped in the struggle and triumph of the human spirit, all while thanking Gd for the goodness in life. “It's music that you can crank up to 18.”
