Event Details

Rollicking freylakhs, sweet cradle songs, and hot American vaudeville tunes are brought to life by the Ann Arbor-based band KLEZMEPHONIC.  Their sound stems from the Eastern European Jewish folk music of the 19th and 20th centuries, sprinkled with swing and Roma Gypsy stylings.  The clarinet (Jennie Lavine) and violin (Henrik Karapetyan) sing, wail and moan over the driving, dance-inducing rhythms of bass (Dave Sharp), accordion (Will Cicola), guitar and banjo (Alex Belhaj).
