A Day’s Journey from Dawn to Dawn

Come on a journey from the Baltic to the Black Sea and beyond as the London Klezmer Quartet delve deep into the celebratory and soulful music of Jewish Eastern Europe.

The quartet brings fresh life to an almost-lost traditional folk tradition through a huge repertoire of dance tunes and lyrical melodies played on fiddle, clarinet, accordion and double bass. Featuring the sonorous vocal of Indra Buraczewska in traditional laments, a Warsaw Yiddish theatre with a hint of jazz and even a song about beetroot soup, you will be tapping your toes along to this energetic and soulful concert.

A dynamic group of performers, the London Klezmer Quartet is much in demand on the folk, world and pop music scenes. Their deep understanding of klezmer, the celebratory and soulful music of Eastern European Jews, is reflected in exuberant, passionate and accomplished performances that captivate audiences of all ages and backgrounds. The London Klezmer Quartet has, individually and collectively, performed at many of the UK’s best-known music venues and festivals, as well as around Europe and further afield.

Musicians:
Ilana Cravitz (Fiddle)
Susi Evans (Clarinet)
Carol Isaacs (Accordion)
Indra Buraczewska (Double Bass and Vocals)

Dates & Times:
Saturday 18 February 7:30pm

“The real deal, to these ears.”
Doug Spencer, ABC Radio National

“When Buraczewska sang, all the earthiness, profound melancholy and celebratory joy you could desire came surging to the fore via her vast, singular contralto.”
Sydney Morning Herald

“One of the best bands in the UK playing Jewish klezmer music.”
London Evening Standard

Review of the new album, To the Tavern:
“Utterly convincing compositions, confirming the band’s members as amongst the leading klezmer composers of our generation.”
