Sunday April 14, 2024

TJAA welcomes all musicians and music enthusiasts for a unique experience based on traditional Jewish music and beliefs. If you are not Jewish, you are most welcome! Learn and draw new inspiration to give breath to new music creations.

Come be a part of something special! We want to connect with you as part of the same community!

Joe Buchanan:
Texas-born and southern-raised, Joe Buchanan makes country music that is steeped in Torah. Struggling with religion and his place in the world, a revelation from his wife about her Jewish identity changed everything. After joining the Tribe, Joe released his debut album, "Unbroken," which sparked nationwide tours, an original Shabbat service, a thriving online community, and a workshop about the choice to become Jewish. Gather up for good times with his latest release, "Back From Babylon" and get everything else on his website:
