Klezmer in the Americas

31st May 2024 @ 8PM

An evening of klezmer from 1950s Buenos Aires and New York, played on clarinet/sax, trumpet, guitar and tuba by a quartet of London’s finest instrumentalists.

Klezmer from the United States is pretty familiar now, but the music of the thriving Jewish wedding scene in mid-20th century Argentina also deserves an airing. As well as familiar names like Dave Tarras, in this programme klezmer fiddler Ilana Cravitz introduces tunes from less familiar Buenos Aires musicians including Berel Stal, Sam Liberman, and Sergio Feidman.

The Klezmer in the Americas band is: John Macnaughton – clarinet & sax, Oliver Presman – trumpet, Matt Bacon – electric guitar, Adina Presman – tuba & accordion.
