A nostalgic weekend with Avraham Fried
There's singing, and there's inspiring.
Avraham has been inspiring audiences around the world with his unique blend of Chassidic, contemporary music for over thirty five years.
He has released more than twenty five CDs.
From NYC’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center to London’s Wembley Hall and Tel Aviv’s Heichal Hatarbut, Avraham has performed in front of sold out audiences.
Avraham's music is colorful. It is a delightful mix served in Yiddish, Hebrew, and English. There's upbeat music that will make you want to dance, and inspiring, heartfelt ballads that will make you want to pray and connect to something higher.
