The Jewish Sound, with Cookie Segelstein

How do you get the Jewish sound into your instrument? What are the actual techniques to bring this elusive element into your playing? It’s not enough just to play Jewish tunes, you must make it sound evocative and familiar to your listeners. Although this workshop is best suited for string players, all are welcome, as we will explore general techniques of producing this sound.
