                                  Church Avenue Sessions:
                  Sandcatchers and The Thomas Heberer Quartet
                   Thursday, August 10th, 7:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Two forward-thinking, genre-spanning ensembles--Sandcatchers and the Thomas Heberer Quartet--will perform at "Church Avenue Sessions," the monthly music series hosted by Flatbush Jewish Center. Both groups "explore the ever-changing boundaries between folk traditions, improvisation, and the possibilities of storytelling in music."

Sandcatchers plays bluegrass/Americana with a Middle Eastern flavor, featuring the oud, lap steel guitar, bass, drums, and percussion.

The Thomas Heberer Quartet fuses various folk traditions, jazz, and contemporary chamber music, using trumpet, guitar, bass, and drums.

Joining them will be Huda Asfour, a D.C.-based and Tunisian-born oud player, vocalist, composer, and engineer who has worked, studied, and collaborated with artists in Tunisia, Gaza, Ramallah, Egypt, Lebanon, and the United States.

All ages are welcome to attend the concert, which will be held on Thursday, August 10th, from 7:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

The cost of a ticket is $15 for an adult and $7 for a child under the age of 16.

Guitarist and composer Yoshie Fruchter founded Church Avenue Sessions. The series' focus is on showcasing the artistry of Brooklyn-based musicians, regardless of genre.
