A conversation with Yonah Zur

Yonah Zur

This summer I will occasionally post conversations with the artists who were scheduled to come to Newburyport this summer. Some will be participating in our “quartet caroling” but others weren’t able to make it due to covid-19.

On selected nights of the festival, I asked past artists of NCMF to choose a surprise Youtube performance as a treat for our audience. Each selection will be preceded by short video introduction to the link. On this, the festival’s final night, I am including two links to send everyone home.
