Bonnie Burt is director of the both films below – these are short clips of these films, the first is called “A Home on the Range: The Jewish Chicken Ranchers of Petaluma” that has some vintage photos.
The next Bonnie Burt film clip is about a #Petaluma Jewish cowboy, rancher and music performer in Petaluma who has maintained tradition with Yiddish folk and classic songs as well as country. Scott Gerber says his music is something of a culture shock. Here is a short video on Petaluma’s Yiddish Cowboy.
