Shir Madness Klezmer Concert
Please join us as Shir Madness performs a lively klezmer concert for the whole family! No registration required.
Shir Madness plays music from every source of klezmer tradition — this music has roots in anything from Gypsy melodies to Hebrew liturgy, from American jazz to songs written for the Yiddish theater, plus folk tunes and dances from Russia, Romania and elsewhere in eastern Europe, and around the Mediterranean. It’s a strange brew of wildly different musical styles, and it’s still evolving, especially with renewed worldwide interest in the music over the past thirty years. The band also plays some tunes written by one of its members, incorporating klezmer spirit and expanding on these traditional song and dance forms. From whatever the source, this is Jewish soul music, and they love it.
