Folk music was never played in Philippa Bacal’s London home, but this didn’t stop her from sneaking out to listen to it at a local university or while watching the 1967 movie The Graduate.

Decades later, Bacal is still listening to one of her favorite genres of music and has spent the last six years as one of the organizers of Folk Music Evenings in Jerusalem along with Dena Maltinisky, Robin Cohen, Angela Ben-Gur, Hachmoni, Yehuda Brumberg, Cecile Panzer and Elazar Brandt, who have helped keep the events going.
