From Hal:
In many ways playing with the Folkaltones is a way of gathering the diverse threads of my musical life. I’ve known Carla for many years, both as a friend and professionally (I designed many of her album covers back in her recording and touring days). Miriam and I met through our congregation, a Reconstructionist synagogue in Denver, where I now serve as part-time musical director and do a lot of songleading with Carla. Our lives are intertwined musically and socially, and it seemed natural that our next project together would be a small ensemble to explore songs and genres we’ve always loved and experiment with intricate textures. My old attraction to Celtic and traditional music has resurfaced, and it’s such a joy to put our spin on the work of songwriters we’ve long admired. Playing Carla’s original material is a pleasure and an honor. And what could be better in this world than singing Beatles songs?

From Miriam:
Through our synagogue I met Hal, who invited me to join his band, Los Lantzmun ( Playing with Los Lantzmun has introduced me to the rich and wonderful tradition of Jewish world music, which I had known very little about. In a real sense, it has put me back in touch with my heritage. Sherman Jacobs, Los Lantzmun’s amazing fiddler, inspired me to learn to play Klezmer clarinet. And last but not least, playing with Los Lantzmun gave me the chance to play with Hal, who is a mind-blowing musician, as well as a true mensch.
I got to know Carla when her family joined our synagogue “havurah,” though I had been in complete awe of her from afar for a long time. (I could happily sit and listen to Carla sing all night long!) Getting to know her better has been a real joy and an inspiration.

From Carla:
Somewhere in the middle of my identity crisis I began to play music in the synagogue with my old friend Hal Aqua, which led to playing music together outside the synagogue, like Beatles songs. And performing Irish music with fellow musician Miriam Rosenblum at occasional Swallow Hill Music Association (Denver’s main folk music school and concert venue) events, led to the two of us asking Miriam to join us for a concert in the spring of 2006. So now I get to admire Hal’s prowess on the many strings he strums and Miriam’s virtuosic wind and reed work while singing some of my favorite songs of all times! A pretty blissful way to live!
