Atlanta Jewish Music Festival

4th AJMF flier back FIN

To our readers,

We have lots of new events to tell you about! We have the opportunity for yet another cultural event but for music! On March 14-16, AJMF returns to create opportunities for musicians and audiences to deepen their connection to Jewish music, culture and each other. For the first time ever, these events will include a Grammy-Nominated headliner, Lisa Loeb and Nine Stories.

“Featuring Lisa at our 4th Annual AJMF is an incredible opportunity,” explained Russell Gottschalk, Founder and Director of AJMF. “She’ll not only bring a broader audience to our Main Event, but her involvement will generate increased visibility for our entire 3-day festival. It’s an exciting year for AJMF and we look forward to celebrating fresh Jewish Music with music lovers throughout Atlanta.”

“I’m looking forward to performing at the AJMF… My Jewish heritage is very important to me, and I’m excited to share my new music with the Atlanta community,” said Lisa Loeb. Loeb’s new album “NO FAIRY TALE” is in stores now. Media appearances include The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien and NPR’s “Weekend Edition.”

This year’s festival will feature a Jazz Night at Steve’s Live Music, Shabbat Service collaborative experience between Ahavath Achim Synagogue and Congregation Bet Haverim, Family Program featuring Lisa Loeb at Temple Sinai and a huge Main Event with headlining acts at Variety Playhouse.
