Westford Music Series presents The Nisht Geferlach Klezmer Band

20 October 2019
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
White Church on the Common

Don’t miss this incredible band as they play Yiddish Musical Theater Songs and Dances – they will knock your socks off!

The jazzy, ecstatic, yet soulful and stirring music of the Jews of Eastern Europe and more recently of New York’s Lower Ease Side have found a home in Vermont. Central Vermont has become a setting for a group of musicians entranced by the rhythms and spirit of klezmer music which inspired them to form The Nisht Geferlach Klezmer Band. They have been in high demand with their unique repertoire of golden age songs of New York’s Yiddish Theater as well as freilachs, bulgars and other lively instrumentals that display the Dixieland influence on Jewish immigrant music. Their music is melancholic, thoughtful and joyful—sometimes in the same tune. People will want to get up and dance or just sit back and have a good time. Their music is enjoyed by audiences of all types as they will hear something new and something familiar. Free will donation. Refreshments. 802-879-4028 for more information.
