The London Klezmer Quartet: Saturday, 22 April 8.00pm (Doors 7.30pm)
This is a Cumbria Highlights sponsored event
And now for something a little bit different.
The London Klezmer Quartet is a dynamic group of performers whose deep understanding of klezmer, the celebratory and soulful music of Eastern European Jews, is reflected in exuberant, passionate and accomplished performances that captivate audiences of all ages and backgrounds. The group plays old and new traditional material guaranteed to move audiences from toe-tapping to tears and back again in moments.
Klezmer was originally played by professional musicians called klezmorim, and consisting largely of dance tunes and instrumental display pieces for weddings and other celebrations, but it was later influenced by American jazz. The London based Klezmer Quartet are brilliant exponents of the genre.
Cabaret style seating. Bring your own drinks.
