He’s the master of ad-lib.”) and others who have come to watch this dynamic artist perform.
Lionel Ames’ music combines the well-loved songs of today and yesterday, old world and new, music of all languages, and more, all given a rich new expression. Yet it is not his songs alone which make him infectious. Audiences who do not even understand the languages of his lyrics enjoy him.
