Gerber, Scott

 Performers, Yiddish Choruses, Singers and Song Leaders

The “Singing Jewish Cowboy,” Scott comes from a secular left-wing Jewish agricultural community near Petaluma, where Yiddish culture and activism for social justice were very important. He has worked in agriculture all his life, mainly on cattle ranches. Sings country, folk and cowboy songs, but Yiddish “shtetl folksongs,” sung to him by his mother and grandmother, are closest to his heart. Accompanies himself on guitar and available for most any venue.
