‘In A Small Café in a Big City’

Your Vox Tablet preview

Print Email

There’s much to say about Monday’s Vox Tablet podcast, in which host Sara Ivry interviews singer-songwriter Clare Burson about her new album, Silver and Ash. The hauntingly beautiful song cycle culls the memories and memory lapses of Burson’s maternal grandmother, who departed Leipzig, Germany, on the morning of November 9, 1938, a few hours before the terror of Kristallnacht.

Memphis, Tennessee-born Burson is a classically trained violinist who has made detours into folk and bluegrass. You can learn more about her in the podcast, but for now, we’ll just leave you with a taste of her music:

COMMENTING CHARGES
Daily rate: $2
Monthly rate: $18
Yearly rate: $180

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at letters@tabletmag.com. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find a lot of your post’s to be precisely what I’m looking for. Do you offer guest writers to write content to suit your needs? I wouldn’t mind writing a post or elaborating on some of the subjects you write in relation to here. Again, awesome web site!
