About the Program

LA darlings Dustbowl Revival return to the Skirball with special guest Lashon Halley for a spirited and celebratory performance. Following the release of their ambitious 2020 album, Is It You, Is It Me, the funky folk band delights with big orchestral arrangements and goosebump-inducing harmonies. Across the Atlantic, Mames Babegenush takes us on a tour of the Port of Copenhagen before setting up for a lively outdoor performance fillmed specially for Skirball Stages. Get ready to dance along to the popular klezmer band’s boundary-pushing mix of traditional Ashkenazi Jewish and Eastern European folk.

Also go behind the scenes with the artists for a look at their musical processes, aspirations, and hopes for the future.

Can’t make the streaming event? No worries! Skirball Stages: Dustbowl Revival and Mames Babegenush will be available to view on the Skirball’s YouTube channel following the premiere date.
