Join us for a special performance to celebrate Jewish-American Heritage Month. NYC-based ISLE of KLEZBOS & Friends approaches tradition with irreverence and respect. The soulful, fun-loving powerhouse all-women’s klezmer ensemble has toured from Vienna to Vancouver since 1998, and will bring a quartet special for this performance. Band repertoire ranges from rambunctious to entrancing: neo-traditional folk dance, mystical melodies, Yiddish swing & retro tango, late Soviet-era Jewish drinking song, re-grooved standards, and genre-defying originals.
