Lenka Lichtenberg creates uniquely Canadian world music, channeling the rich Toronto soundscapes of Middle East, India and Brazil, and her own East European heritage. Once a child star in her native Prague, Czech Republic, she is an award-winning recording artist, published composer, sought-after session vocalist (Yiddish, English, Czech, French, Russian, Hebrew), and bandleader with 6 solo CD releases and several collaborations on her resume. Lenka is in the midst of a diverse international concert career, traveling across continents as a solo artist, with a trio, her group “Fray”, or with one of her collaborative projects. Most recently, she has commenced collaboration with Eccodek's Andrew McPherson; the resulting remix of one of her songs, "Open My Eyes", was picked as "Song of the Week" on CBC's Here and Now in 2014. Lenka's plans for 2015 include publishing a collection of her original Yiddish songs, releasing an EP of Eccodek remixes, filming two new music videos, and recording the bulk of an upcoming CD of Czech and Moravian songs, titled "Masaryk." Summer touring will see Lenka in concerts with Yair Dalal and Alan Bern in Czech Republic, and the U.S. with her band Fray in November, 2015.

In celebration of Give to the Max Day 2015, Larry Long will be performing songs written in honor of elders with community members. Larry’s performance will capture the many cultures of Minnesota. All proceeds from his performance will go to Community Celebration of Place (501 C3) towards archiving these oral histories.
