Veretski Pass with guest Joel Rubin

West Coast in aspect, global in impact, Veretski Pass’ iconic klezmer sound is made by Cookie Segelstein (violin), Joshua Horowitz (19th-century button accordion and cimbalom), and Stuart Brotman (bass and drum). Veretski Pass reunites with clarinet maestro Joel Rubin to present historically informed renditions with fearless arrangements in their own distinct style, filled with raucous rhythms, soaring melodies, and newly wrought compositions.

The members of this group have been highly respected pioneers in the klezmer revival community since the 1980s. As teachers and performers for decades, they are all classically trained and equally comfortable in jazz, classical, and world music.

With many of their projects, Veretski Pass enjoys collaborating with many different cultures and guests. At the root of this music are a myriad of different influences. These include Romanian, Ukrainian, Roma, Turkish, Greek, and more. Music knows no political boundaries, no tribalism, and they happily mix these styles into their own projects.
