Daniel Cainer – More Jewish Chronicles
Presented by Multicultural Arts Exchange

Direct from London, multi-award-winning musical story-teller Daniel Cainer returns from the wilderness with another collection of unique stories-in-song: More Jewish Chronicles. Daniel examines more than what it means to be Jewish with humor, wit, emotional resonance, and even a dose of spiritual profundity. Cainer is brilliant, charming, funny, and still writes his promotional copy. You’ll leave with a whole heart and a head full of tunes you’ll not forget.

Cainer is now a veteran of five off-Broadway runs and was a 2020 MAC songwriter award finalist. He has written scores for film and television. Many well-known artists have covered his songs in the UK and the US, he’s been the ‘Singing Reporter’ on the BBC Radio & TV with his topical songs and more recently the world’s only ‘Singing Astrologer’ (probably). You can also hear his more reflective material sung by cantors in temples in the US and UK.

Here’s what some of the top names in the Jewish musical world have to say:

“His words and stories, his gorgeous melodies and compositions, the journey he takes us on, familiar to all of us and yet so singularly his. Go to bed early or stay up late but make sure you see Dan wherever in the world he is, whenever you can. He is not to be missed.” – Julie Silver

“Daniel Cainer is an absolute gem. A brilliant performer and a stellar songwriter. His music celebrates the complexity and joy of being human full of wit, charm, and heart. An evening with Daniel Cainer is a journey full of laughter, tears, hope, and beauty, one you won’t soon forget.”- Eliana Light

“His Jewish songcraft is immaculate, and his skill is unmatched. Nobody does it better.” – Dan Nichols

“Daniel Cainer knows what he wants to say and how to say it. Our gift is his willingness to share the song and story with us.” Craig Taubman

“Call him a comedian, a spinner of tales, a homespun philosopher – beneath the rapid-fire delivery there lurks a warm Jewish soul and a feeling of comfort, of home.” – Theo Bikel
