Suiting the Sound – Jewish Rodeo Tailors of Country Music
Tuesday, Feb 15, 2022
Ablaze with vibrant colors and sparkling with rhinestones, country music performers have been lighting up stages and turning heads in spectacular, custom-designed Western wear since the late 1940s. In this program we’ll explore the lives and work of the three most influential of the pioneering rodeo tailors, who were born into Jewish families in Eastern Europe and immigrated to America as boys in the early twentieth century, bringing with them old-world techniques learned as tailors’ apprentices in their home towns and villages.
More information coming soon!
