Shirim Klezmer Orchestra, Cambridge, MA, 24 May 2009


Klezmer at the Lilypad, with a special emphasis on the Romanian roots of klezmer- some great Romanian tunes will be thrown into the mix. Also, we will be the Shirim Klezmer Quartet this month—core members Glenn Dickson, Michael, Eric & Jim, who have been playing together for longer than we can remember will be holding the klezmer fort alone this time. It should be a lot of fun. Bring your kids, bring your grandmother! The last show was packed, there was kozatski dancing and a line dance that went out onto the sidewalks of Cambridge! A real party! Let’s do it again!

Here are the details:

May 24, 2:00pm at the Lilypad, 1353 Cambridge St., Inman Square, Cambridge, MA Suggested donation, $10, $7/kids.

This special performance will feature the four members who have been with the band the longest: Glenn Dickson, clarinet; Michael McLaughlin, accordion; Jim Gray, tuba; and Eric Rosenthal, drums. They have been playing together for over 15 years and have a rapport and tightness that only comes with such experience together.
