The show is “only a guitar, a singer, an audience and the connection between them.”

Thursday’s entertainment at Jerusalem’s Abraham Hostel should appeal to a wide cross-section of the local music consumers. The artist in question is guitarist-vocalist Daniel Salganik, who may be better known to the wider public as the frontman of the Dark Lager Jerusalem-based rock and roll outfit. The latter generally performs songs in English and spares few decibels or calories when it comes to sonic and energy output.The forthcoming free show, which starts at 9 p.m., will be a somewhat gentler affair with Salganik accompanying his singing on acoustic guitar.The repertoire for the gig will tend toward the cozier side of country folk, with Salganik originals, both in Hebrew and in English, and covers in the song list.The Jerusalem performance is part of an intensive national tour, with Salganik scheduled to strut his stuff at all manner of venue, up and down the country, taking in around 50 dates within the space of just three months. That follows hot on the heels of Dark Lager’s debut album release.As Salganik puts it, the show is “only a guitar, a singer, an audience and the connection between them.”For more information: abrahamhostels.com/jerusalem.
