American singer-songwriter Suzanne Vega will be returning to Israel next month for two unique shows - both accompanied by a string orchestra from the Ra'anana Symphonette.

Vega's first performance will be at the Tamar Festival at Masada on September 26. The long-running festival, held on the intermediary days of Sukkot, also features an extensive lineup of local talent, including Rita, Sarit Haddad, David Broza, Avraham Tal and many more.

The following day, Vega will take the stage at the Haifa Congress Center for a second show.

The folk singer, who rose to fame in the 1980s, has released nine studio albums. Her most famous songs include "Luka," "Tom's Diner" and "Left of Center."

Vega most recently performed in Israel in 2015, when she played two shows in Tel Aviv with the Israel Philharmonic.

In an interview with the Creative Community for Peace a few years ago, Vega said that “I think the cultural boycott punishes people who make their living in the arts, both in Israel and [around the world]... If culture is the medium by which we have dialogue, boycotting cuts this off. It doesn’t add to it.”

Tickets for Vega's show at the Tamar Festival are available at and cost NIS 254-304. Tickets for the show at the Haifa Congress Center are available at and range from NIS 205-455.
