Brainwaves – May 4, 2021 – Tribute to Jacob’s Ladder (Part 2)

In the second part of the Brainwaves “look back” at Jacob’s Ladder music festival, we have music from Maya Johanna, Sun Tailor, Sawyer and Elad Jacob. Jacob’s Ladder was held at the Sea of Galilee in Israel for over 40 years until the festival was shuttered just before the pandemic. In this special Brainwaves series, we listen to some of our favorite Jacob’s Ladder discoveries. Non-Jacob’s Ladder music on the show too, including Rilo Kiley, Joan Osborne, David Bowie, Regina Spector, Arcade Fire, Nick Gilder and a double play from Big Star.
