Deena Shoshkes in Champaign and “The Sleeping Beauty” from Champaign Urbana Ballet


Deena Shoshkes and her husband Jon Fried were the founding members of the 1980s New Jersey band The Cucumbers and now perform frequently as an acoustic duo. They’re coming to Champaign Thursday in support of Deena’s new Rock River CD, and they’ll play for us live on the Thursday edition of “Live and Local.” We’ll also hear about the upcoming performances of The Sleeping Beauty from Champaign Urbana Ballet.
