Song of a Jewish Cowboy

Song of a Jewish Cowboy

Meet Scott Gerber, an unlikely mix of Yiddish and cowboy cultures. A descendant of the left wing Petaluma chicken ranchers, Scott learned Yiddish and progressive songs from his mother and grandmother, and carries on their traditions while proudly working in agriculture today. He rides the range and sings cowboy and Yiddish songs at Simcha Sunday and at an Irish bar. And he's looking to meet a nice Jewish girl...

An intimate portrait of someone who bridges two very different worlds.
