Girls in Trouble is an indie-folk/art-pop song cycle by internationally acclaimed musician, poet and Torah teacher, Alicia Jo Rabins.
Be transported by Alicia Jo Rabins' beautiful song cycle about the inner lives of Biblical women - and how their complicated experiences resonate with our own. Drawing inspiration from rabbinic midrash, bluegrass, feminist Torah commentary, indie rock and mysticism, Rabins' classical violin training and background as a poet combine with her years of Jewish text study to offer an intimate window into the surprisingly relevant lives of these ancient women. With her "gorgeous" (New York Times) voice, violin, looping pedal, and guitar, Rabins single-handedly conjures the stories of Miriam, Judith, Lilith, Tamar, and others, invoking their power to keep us company in moments of joy and difficulty.
The concert is a rare London appearance of this Portland-based internationally acclaimed performer.
