Ellen Bukstel and Arlene Boumel to Sing at Borderline Music Club

BY GEORGE J. DACRE

url-2Folk singers Ellen Bukstel and Arlene Boumel of Broward County, Florida are visiting Borderline Music Club in New City next Sunday, March 17.

Bukstel is an activist who says her music has helped raise millions of dollars for worthy causes such as the homeless, the Jewish Federation and victims of domestic abuse. She recently performed in the presidential campaign of President Obama and is a producer of shows at the “Shack In The Back” venue at her home in Fort Lauderdale.

Boumel will open the show, which takes place at the New City Ambulance Corps building at 2 p.m., and the duo will perform many of the songs they have made popular in appearances around the USA. Bukstel says she lays her emotions bare in her delivery, putting her passions on the line without fear, bringing hope, laughter, tears and biting wit and inspiration to her writing and performance.

Boumel started singing at a summer camp in the Poconos owned by her parents in the 1960s. A psychotherapist by trade, Boumel is known for her sweet melodic voice. Tickets for the performance at solz1@optonline.net.
