The London Klezmer Quartet are celebrating ten years of traditional European folk music and invite you to join them at Halsway Manor, National Centre for Folk Arts, to delve deeply into the world of freylekhs, bulgars, zhoks, khosidls and terkishers – the dance music repertoire of Eastern Europe! The event takes place at Halsway on Saturday 30 November at 8pm.
Klezmer is the celebratory and soulful music of Eastern European Jews, played for weddings, parties, and celebrations. It is exuberant, passionate and can take you from toe tapping to tears and back again. The London Klezmer Quartet, are leading lights in this style of music, playing with compelling virtuosity.
Musicians can join them for a whole weekend of workshops to learn this style of music – be quick though, this course is nearly sold out – or help them celebrate their anniversary gig at Halsway Manor on Saturday 30 November.
Tickets for the concert cost £12. Buy securely online at www.halswaymanor.org.uk.
