Event description
Lee Penn Sky debuts Lean into the Letter, songs inspired by a letter from Israel sent in 1958 by a relative presumed lost in the Holocaust.

About this Event

Lee Penn Sky releases his new album Lean into the Letter, which chronicles an amazing journey that started with the discovery of a letter sent from Israel in 1958. This letter, found in the back of a drawer in a purse that belonged to Lee's Great-Grandmother Sadie, was translated at a local synagogue, revealing the author as Sadie's nephew, Jakob Nistel, thought to have perished with the rest of Sadie's family in the Holocaust. Jakob detailed the perils of evading the Nazis until the end off the war, hiding underground, to ultimately immigrate to Israel to start a new life. Through the magic of the internet, Lee's family located Jakob’s descendants in Israel, resulting in Lee, his mother, brother, and cousins embarking on a pilgrimage to Israel to connect with their history, their family, and their future.

The songs that compose Lean into the Letter thread together Lee's thoughts and emotions regarding Jakob, his survival in the face of horrific loss, his ongoing and unshakable faith, the discovery of and joy for new family, and ideas of resistance, depression, loss and anger in the context of historic and volatile conflicts that permeate the Holy Land.

Join Lee as he debuts these songs and tells the stories that inform them. The concert will also feature Boise band, The Oliphants.
