“No Further Instructions” at the Arthur Zankel Music Center

Feb 27, 2013

   “No Further Instructions,” a performance by Howard Fishman with New York Times travel journalist and photographer Michael Benanav, gets under way at 8-PM Friday in the Arthur Zankel Music Center at Skidmore College. Howard will also perform at the Hudson Opera House on the 2nd, at The Falcon on the 3rd.

The program combines original music, historical memoir, storytelling and compelling photography to share the duo’s exploits and experiences as American Jews in rural Romania.

Fishman began his musical career on the streets of New Orleans and the subways of New York before landing his first major engagement at the Algonquin’s Oak Room in 1999. Since then he has headlined in a number of top venues in the U.S. and abroad, including Lincoln Center, the Steppenwolf Theatre and the Blue Note.
