Wailing clarinets! Soulful violins! Grooving accordions! Come learn the foundations of klezmer and start collecting repertoire for your own klezmer dance set! Together we will take a deep dive into klezmer dance music, a Jewish folk music tradition that dates back centuries in Eastern Europe. We will explore the foundational components of klezmer including modes, dance rhythms, and stylistic ornamentation. All experience levels are welcome. We will be primarily learning by ear, but sheet music will be provided. Whether you are learning klezmer for the first time or wanting to deepen your knowledge—there will be something for you! All instruments welcome! Led by Northampton-based klezmer fiddler Rachel Leader (Mamaliga, Burikes).
