Our next gig at St Ethelburga's on Oct 22nd will be
 song, dance and wedding music both wild and tender from;
Klezmer Klub

Yiddish songs about London in the early 1900s are a rarity, but have been collected and arranged by
the band and tell of immigrants, poverty, prostitutes, street sellers with warmth, irony, anger and humour.

Doors open: 6.45pm
Music: 7.30pm

Klezmer is, at its heart, dance music, wedding music, both wild and tender.
Played by the Klezmorim as they tramped the roads of eastern Europe it is a
music that gets to your heart by way of your feet. Often described as
bitter-sweet, it came out of poverty and oppression. Both dances and song
contain joy, exhilaration and wit alongside the sadness, anger and defiance.

Freylekhs, bulgars, horas, hongas, sers ��� these are thumping dance tunes
that would have been played at 'simkhes' (celebrations) in Eastern European
'shtetls' (Jewish villages) for hundreds of years. Whilst respecting the
tradition, the bitter-sweet sound that is klezmer, we bring them to life
from our own perspective of modern day life in London , with all the
inter-cultural mixing that goes with it.
