Songs of the Jewish Ukrainian Heartland, with Michael Alpert, Sasha Lurje, Craig Judelman, Stuart Brotman
Old songs of forbidden loves, boy soldiers, the wonders of nature and looming dangers are always relevant. Ukraine also was the source of our most important collections of old-time klezmer tunes. Ashkenaz Music & Dance Community Center in Berkeley welcomes three of the world’s most in-demand klezmer musicians, Michael Alpert (song, violin), Sasha Lurje (song), Craig Judelman (violin) along with their special guest Stuart Brotman (bass, cello, tilinca and baraban). Let us come together to sing the songs and tell the stories of a heartland of Yiddish music and culture.
Show at 6:30, followed by a dance at 8pm.
At Ashkenaz Music & Dance Community Center
Tickets: $25 – $30
