From the Midwest to the Middle East – that’s the route traveled by American-born singer-songwriter Sandy Cash (http://www.sandycash.com/). Now living in Israel, Sandy is a musical storyteller whose thoughtful – and theatrical – performance style is rooted in the songs on which she grew up back in her native Detroit. At the same time, Sandy’s original songs offer a penetrating look into the world in which she has chosen to make her home. Drawing deeply from the well of history while holding up a mirror to the politics of the present day, Sandy’s writing also embraces universal themes: the sustaining love of family, a commitment to community, and – oh, so important in this part of the world! – a healthy sense of humor. Sandy’s latest disc, “Voices From the Other Side” was named one of the best folk releases of 2012 by the NPR-syndicated radio show The Back Porch.
Gary Stockdale (http://garystockdale.com/) is a busy songwriter and performer who is also a 2-time EMMY-nominated composer. Fresh out of college, Gary met Oscar-winning composer Henry Mancini, under whose mentorship Gary learned the craft of film music composition. In addition to his many TV and film projects, Gary has been the main composer for the “Bad Boys of Magic,” Penn & Teller since 1990 and is co-writer of the irreverent adult musical BUKOWSICAL!, which opened at the New York Fringe Festival in 2007.
